Kenneth Barnett, 58, of the 6400 block of 180th Street, Tinley Park, accused of screaming at and punching the car windows of a man in a parking lot, then threatening the man's three sisters, was charged with three counts of assault.
Barnett was almost hit while the man was pulling into a parking spot at the lot on 17302 Oak Park Avenue at about 10:40 p.m. May 4, police said.
Barnett, who police described as drunk, also advanced on the man’s three sisters – ages 53, 60 and 71 – threatening to "Punch your _____ face in," when they yelled at him to stop or they would pepper spray him, police said.
The sisters had been traveling in a separate car as they and their brother planned to eat dinner following a wake, police said.
Barnett kept repeating his military service to both the women (adding "I'm ex-military. You wanna _____ with me?") and to police when they arrested Barnett at his home later that night, police said.
Barnett posted $1,000 bond later that night, police said. His next court date is May 23 in Bridgeview.
