Monee mayor charged with battery against ump at youth baseball … – Chicago Tribune

The mayor of south suburban Monee has been charged by Will County authorities with two counts of felony aggravated battery for allegedly punching an umpire in the face at a youth baseball game in June, a blow the ump said broke his jaw.

An arrest warrant was issued Friday for Jay Farquhar, 50, according to Charles Pelkie of the Will County state’s attorney’s office.

Pelkie said Friday afternoon that the mayor was arranging to turn himself in.

A text message sent to Farquhar for comment was not immediately returned.
