The son of Illinois Senate President John Cullerton is in trouble again, charged with threatening a bouncer at a Wicker Park neighborhood bar on Sunday night.

Garritt M. Cullerton, 28, of the 2800 block of West Sunnyside Avenue was charged with misdemeanor assault, police News Affairs Officer Darryl Baety said.

Cullerton physically threatened a bouncer at the Innjoy bar in the 2000 block of West Division Street about 10:30 p.m. Sunday, Baety said. Sunday was the final day of the Do-Division street festival.

"I am going to punch you in the face. Punch you in the f****** face and knock you out," Cullerton told the bouncer, according to a police report.

Cullerton was released on a personal recognizance bond and is scheduled to appear in court on June 25.

It is not first time Cullerton has been in trouble with the law. He pleaded guilty in January 2011 to a misdemeanor DUI charge and was given two years of conditional discharge and ordered to pay a $1,250 fine. Court records indicate that fine has not been paid.

He was also charged with DUI in 2004 and 2008, but not convicted.

John Cullerton had no comment Tuesday night.
