Barrington teenager faces three charges stemming from Saturday incident

BARRINGTON - Barrington Police received a 911 call for an 18-year-old Barrington man possibly overdosing on drugs but later arrested his 16-year-old brother who reportedly became belligerent with officers.

On Saturday, Nov. 26 at about 11:30 p.m., police received a 911 call from someone at St. Andrew's School on Federal Road. The caller said her son was likely overdosing on drugs and needed immediate medical attention.

Police officers and firefighters responded to the area and located the 18-year-old; the teenager's brother and father were trying to restrain the individual. An officer put the 18-year-old in handcuffs and asked him if he had taken any medications. According to the report, the officer could smell the odor of alcohol on the teenager's breath.

Meanwhile, the 16-year-old brother of the allegedly intoxicated teenager started yelling at his sibling. The officers told the younger brother to quiet down, but that only led to him hollering at the police officers. The younger brother grew more unruly and eventually began swearing at the officers, according to the report.

Police then charged the 16-year-old with disorderly conduct, obstructing an officer in the execution of duty and resisting arrest.

Police did not charge the older brother.
