A man accused of threatening and punching a Cook County sheriff's police officer in the face after refusing to turn down a stereo was ordered held in lieu of $10,000 bail today.
Miguel Coronilla, 39, was charged with disorderly conduct, resisting a police officer and aggravated battery, which is a felony, Cook County Sheriff Thomas J. Dart said in a news release.
On Thursday, sheriff's police patrol officers were called on a noise complaint to Coronilla's home on the 4900 block of South Lockwood Avenue in Cook County's Stickney Township, police said.
Coronilla appeared to be highly intoxicated when he answered the door and refused to turn down the volume of his music, telling the officer he would "remember his face" and would "kill him," according to the release.
The officer again asked Coronilla to lower the music and also to provide his ID, when Coronilla became enraged and struck the officer in the face with a closed fist, police said.
Coronilla continued to be combative as additional officers on the scene took him into custody, police said.
Bail was set at $10,000 for Coronilla in the Bridgeview Courthouse this morning, and his next court appearance was scheduled for June 18.
