COOK COUNTY CRIMINAL COURTHOUSE — A man busted for drinking in his car threatened and taunted the cops who arrested him, even insulting one of the cop's wives after the man was asked to take a Breathalyzer, police say.
He also claimed that his boss was the infamous Mexican drug lord "El Chapo," according to police reports.
Octavio Cazarez, 44, was sitting in his convertible early Sunday downing Heinekens when police spotted him in the 1900 block of West 36th Street, police said.
Cazarez tried to escape, speeding through a stop sign toward Damen Avenue, according to a police report. He eventually pulled over and was arrested.
But at the Deering District police station, the slurring, stumbling man started hurling insults and threats when police repeatedly asked him blow into a Breathalyzer, police said. He refused, the reports say.
"Blow my c--k. Wait, your wife did that last night,'" he said, according to the police reports. "I'm not taking any tests, I've been drinking all day long. Good night. I'm going to sleep."
Cazarez also told cops that he works for an infamous cartel kingpin known as "El Chapo," according to police.
El Chapo, whose real name is Joaquin Guzman, is generally believed to be among the most powerful drug lords in the world and one of Mexico's richest people. He was named by the Chicago Crime Commission as "Public Enemy Number One."
"Remember who I work for. Viva Chapo, and f--- the USA," Cazarez also said, according to the reports.
At a court hearing Monday, prosecutors made no mention of whether Cazarez worked for Guzman or whether he had any gang affiliation.
Cazarez, of McKinley Park, was charged with felony DUI, driving without insurance, drinking in public, negligent driving and failing to stop at a stop sign.
A Cook County judge ordered him released from jail and put on electronic monitoring Monday. If Cazarez violates any conditions of his bond, he'll automatically go back to jail and be held on $25,000 bond.
