A Joliet man was arrested at the Louis Joliet Mall on probable cause of animal cruelty and failing to appear in court for a case where he was charged with driving on a suspended license, according to court and police records.
Offficers arrested Aaron Porche, 27, of the 1000 block of Louise Lane, about 1 a.m. at the mall.
Court records indicate no formal charges have been filed against Porche. He was released on his own recognizance after his arrest and he is scheduled to appear in court March 2.
Porche was also arrested on a warrant for failure to appear in court on a case where he faces a charge of driving on a suspended license.
On Dec. 9, Porche was issued a citation by Bolingbrook police for driving on a suspended license and having an expired vehicle registration, according to court records.
Porche failed to appear in court on Jan. 9 and a judge signed a warrant for his arrest that carried a bond of $2,500, court records show.
The warrant also covers his other traffic cases where he was cited by Joliet police on Dec. 4 for failure to reduce speed and operating an uninsured vehicle, court records show.
On Jan. 20, 2017, Porche was cited for failure to reduce speed by Illinois State Police. He pleaded guilty to the charge several weeks later, according to court records.
A judge ordered him to pay a fine of $120.
