DeKALB – A 25-year-old DeKalb man is accused of threatening Kishwaukee Hospital staff with a gun – which he did not have – Friday morning when he was being discharged.
Andre P. Cross-Boler, of the 800 block of West Taylor Street, was charged with disorderly conduct when he became argumentative with hospital staff and threatened to shoot someone, according to a DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office news release.
Cross-Boler did not have a gun, but was intoxicated when police arrived, said Gary Dumdie, DeKalb County Sheriff’s chief deputy.
Hospital staff also knew Cross-Boler didn’t have a gun, Dumdie said.
Cross-Boler remained in DeKalb County Jail on Friday unable to post 10 percent of his $1,200 bond. If convicted of the charge, he would serve not more than 30 days in jail.
Cross-Boler is next due in court today.
