Superheros Can’t Do Much Crimefighting In West Side Lockup
CHICAGO (STMW) — ‘Superman’ and ‘Batwoman’ spent the night in a West Side jail cell in full costume because they were arrested for separate alcohol-fueled incidents early Saturday.
About 3 a.m. Mario A. Reyes, 21, was allegedly intoxicated and was kicked out of a party at 827 S. Oakley Ave., according to a Harrison District police lieutenant.
Reyes allegedly started breaking bottles in the hallway of the residence after he was kicked out, causing the party-goers to become fearful that they would be hurt, the lieutenant said.
Police were called and Reyes, of an unidentified address on Atlantic Avenue in northwest suburban Hoffman Estates, was arrested at 3:20 a.m. and taken to the Harrison District lockup where he remained Saturday morning, in full ‘Superman’ costume including a cape, according to the lieutenant.
Reyes was charged with reckless conduct, a misdemeanor and is scheduled to appear in Misdemeanor Court (Br. 43) Dec. 8.
A couple of hours later, 36-year-old Cori Prifogle, who was dressed up as ‘Batwoman,’ was “dazed and confused’’ and could not find her apartment door at 737 W. Washington Blvd., the lieutenant said.
Prifogle asked for help from a woman in the building but allegedly became belligerent to the woman.
“She asked for help and but the victim didn’t know who the hell she was,’’ the lieutenant said. “She started calling her derogatory names and then pushed her.”
Police went to the scene and Prifogle was arrested at 5 a.m. and also taken to the Harrison District lockup in her costume, which included a latex “batsuit.’’
Prifogle was charged with misdemeanor battery and she is scheduled to appear in Misdemeanor Court (Br. 43) on Dec. 21.
