An Oak Lawn man is facing assault charges after he and another man got into a heated argument near a trash bin, reports said.
Oak Lawn Police confronted the man later identified as Anthony P. Dixon, 44, in the 9300 block of South Harlem Avenue around 4:47 p.m. March 13.
The alleged offender, Anthony Dixon, 44, told police he was the victim in the argument with the building manager, who apparently caught him in the act of dumping trash into the building’s dumpster.
Dixon told police that during the argument, the building manager poked him in the chest with his finger, reports said. He got back into his car to wait for police after the building manager said he was calling 911.
According to the building manager’s account, he observed Dixon throwing trash into the dumpster. The building manager confronted Dixon because he had gotten into trouble with the village for an overflowing dumpster on past occasions.
Police said that when the building manager approached Dixon’s car, Dixon got out and told him to “get out of my [blankety-blank] face.”
The building manager continued to approach Dixon, who then threatened to kick the building manager’s ass, reports said.
Police said that three witnesses on the scene confirmed the building manager’s version of events. Officers spoke again to Dixon, who allegedly admitted making the ass-kicking statement.
Dixon was given a citation for assault and had a village adjudication hearing on March 25.
Police said he is no longer allowed on the property.
