Sugar Grove man pleads guilty to battery at pizza place

SUGAR GROVE – Mitchell J. Jeczalik, 53, of Green Hills Court, Sugar Grove, pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor count of battery earlier this month after a physical altercation with a Sugar Grove restaurant employee in November.

Jeczalik was initially charged with one count of felony aggravated battery in a public place, but that charge was dropped. Police have said that about 9:10 p.m on Nov. 5, Jeczalik entered Rosati’s Pizza in the 400 block of North Route 47.

A dispute with the clerk over a credit for a free pizza became physical when Jeczalik jumped onto the counter and grabbed the restaurant employee’s shirt and punched the employee in the face, police said.

The employee escaped the man’s grasp and attempted to get to a phone to call 911, police said.

The man pursued the employee, prevented him from placing the call and knocked him to the floor.

He entered a guilty plea May 3 before Judge Susan Clancy Boles. He had turned himself in to Sugar Grove police Nov. 15 and was later released when he posted $500 bail.

According to a court order, Jeczalik must pay $1,000 restitution; a fine of $700; court costs of $400; and a drug test fee of $100. He also received 12 months of conditional discharge and is required to attend anger management courses.

Jeczalik also is not to make contact with anyone from Rosati’s Pizza in Sugar Grove.
