Police, firefighters and paramedics from Arlington Heights responded about 5:33 p.m. Tuesday, September 5, 2023 to a report of a possible psychiatric emergency in the area of Northwest Highway and Vail Avenue Arlington Heights.

A witness told CARDINAL NEWS that a male black in his 30s or 40s was arguing with a female black, unknown age, near the intersection of Northwest Highway and Vail Avenue. At one point the male adult was sitting and lying in a westbound lane of Northwest Highway. The subject had a medical sling and possibly a cast or splint on his arm, according to the witness.

Police officers were first on the scene at Vail Avenue and Northwest Highway, and requested Arlington Heights Fire Department paramedics to stage for a possible psychiatric evaluation. However, Arlington Heights Fire Department paramedics were later advised by police that they were released from the scene.

Apparently medical treatment and transportation was either not needed or was refused by the male adult.
