TAKE THE POLL at the end of the story.
The server said the customer first touched her back, which made her feel uncomfortable. When she tried to take the bill from his hand, Tellez held on to it, according to the report.
Police said that Tellez moved his hand down the server’s back and began rubbing her buttock, all the while hanging on to the bill.
The server slapped his hand away and walked away to tell her manager. She called police and when they arrived, identified Tellez as the man who grabbed her buttock, reports said.
Police said the server wished to press charges. Tellez was taken to the Oak Lawn police station where he was charged with battery.
No court information was available.
