Man charged with punching, biting Aurora casino security guards …
Police said Miles J. Garcia, of the 900 block of Fenton Street, fought two security guards who denied him entry to the downtown casino and a third who showed up to help detain him around 12:48 a.m. Friday.
Garcia was charged Friday with three counts of aggravated battery in connection with the incident.
Two Hollywood Casino security guards told police Garcia began to fight them after he was denied entry to the casino.
While the two agents tried to stop Garcia, he punched the right side of one s face with a closed fist and hit the other guard in the right side of his face and bit one of his hands, police said.
Another security guard told police he was on break when he heard of the fight and ran to the scene, where he saw Garcia on the ground with the other guards trying to detain him, police said.
He then joined the other security guards in detaining Garcia, who dug his fingernails into the third security guard s hand as they were wrestling on the ground, according to the police report.
Three police officers who responded to the scene handcuffed Garcia as he was still trying to get away from the security guards, police said.
The officers helped him to his feet and escorted him to a police van.
During the walk, Garcia turned his head and spit on the face of one of the police officers, according to the report.
The casino security guards refused medical treatment at the scene.
