Multiple Arrests at Motel 6 ‘Hotel Party’ Including Battery to Peace Officer, Resisting Arrest

Arlington Heights police responded about 12:25 a.m. Thursday to a report of a disturbance at the Motel 6 at 441 West Algonquin Road. Police received a report that people were running up and down the hallways possibly damaging things on the floor. Police responded and immediately called for backup from other Arlington Heights police officers when the subjects were discovered to be disorderly. Oksane Badanina, 20, of Palatine, became disorderly and pushed an officer in the chest as she continued to resist arrest.

At least six people were immediately detained and one male/Hispanic fled out of a northeast doorway. The police transport van was called out to take at least four suspects into custody. Eventually eight people were transported. Pablo Aguilar, 26, of Arlington Heights, also pushed a police officer, and challenged the officer to fight him. Oswaldo Garcia, 18, of Hoffman Estates, became aggressive with officers that were arresting Aguilar. During the scuffle, Garcia head-butted and shouldered an officer.

Police put out an alert to Rolling Meadows police, Cook County Sheriff’s police and the Illinois State Police after the one subjects escaped out the hotel door. The police agencies responded within minutes. At least three Cook County Sheriff’s deputies were on the scene within a couple of minutes, as well as at least three Rolling Meadows police officers.

The escaped subject left the hotel unnoticed while police were handcuffing other offenders. He was later identified as Gibran Delgado-Mendez, 19, of Rolling Meadows, after he ran toward the south end of the Motel 6 parking lot and was spotted and detained by Cook County Sheriff’s deputies.

Another subject, Marco Silva, 18, of Mount Prospect, was found later by police outside of the hotel with his hands and shirt bloodied.

  1. In these times the use of the term “Padddywagon” may be looked on as derogatory and offensive.
    It was a term for a large police wagon that was often times called to corral and detain persons displaying “public drunkeness” The stigma associated with these people were those of Irish descent and thus “Paddy” short for Padraig was used.
    There must be a more descriptive term for this type of police vehicle.
