'Well-Being Check' Doesn't Turn Out Well
Oak Lawn Police were dispatched Hilton Oak Lawn at 9333 S. Cicero Ave. to check on a 25-year-old man said by the caller to be despondent and possibly doing drugs around 10:53 p.m. The man in question answered the door and appeared to have just woken up, police said. According to the report, the man told officers that he wasn’t depressed and did not feel harming himself or anybody else. The man stated that his “Baby Mama” has been calling police because he has been going out with another girl, police said. Officers spoke with the other occupant in the room, a woman identified as Desiree M. Cahill, 30, of Burbank, who advised police that she had been with the man all afternoon. Cahill told the officers she didn’t think the man was depressed and said, “he has been happy all day,” the report said. While running Cahill’s name through the database, police discovered that she had an outstanding warrant from December for “obstructing justice” with bail set at $30,000. Cahill was taken into custody and brought to the Oak Lawn police station. As they were leaving, officers advised the man to call his “Baby Mama” and find out why she keeps calling the police on him, reports said.
