Man charged with battery in St. Charles

ST. CHARLES – A 24-year-old man has been charged with misdemeanor battery after spitting in the face of another man outside a downtown St. Charles bar, according to the St. Charles Police Department.

Officers responded to the entrance of Pub 222 on West Main Street about 1:24 a.m. April 26 for a disturbance.

Michael J. Stubits, of the 26W700 block of Lindsey Avenue, Winfield, reportedly approached a 21-year-old man who was sitting on the bar’s front step. Stubits pulled down his pants, exposed his buttocks and then spit in the man’s face, police reported.

The 21-year-old told officers on the scene that he wanted to sign complaints, police reported.

Stubits was taken to the police department, where he was booked and processed on a charge of battery. He was released on $150 bond and is expected in Kane County Branch Court on May 29, according to court records.
