ST. CHARLES – A Geneva man who tried to start a fight with a bar employee in St. Charles on Sunday was not only charged with aggravated assault but also arrested on five warrants from two jurisdictions, according to a St. Charles Police Department report.
Ryan Thomas Fitzsimmons, 30, of the 2700 block of Peterson Court, Geneva, reportedly attracted police attention when he tried to start a fight with an employee at Alley 64 in downtown St. Charles.

The police report indicated Fitzsimmons has been banned from nearly all the bars in downtown St. Charles.
