No, not Barack Obama.
A Blue Island man who rose to national notoriety after he and his father beat up a Kansas City Royals coach in U.S. Cellular Field was held without bail Wednesday after he was alleged to have violated his probation for a felony aggravated battery conviction in March.
William Ligue III, 21, of the 12600 block of Elm Street in Blue Island appeared in Cook County Bond Curt Thursday on charges that he violated the curfew requirement of his probation.
Ligue was sentenced to 30 months of gang-intervention probation earlier this year after he was arrested on March 14 for beating up another man with a fellow gang member.
For White Sox fans, this is a family that you’d like to just see go away. Any discussion about ballpark safety almost always begins with the Ligues & the White Sox, something White Sox fans absolutely hate. The other fans don’t deserve to be associated with these mouthbreathers, but unfortunately do and will continue as long as the name “Ligue” continues to find it’s way into the news.
