12:33 pm CST January 26, 2016

Jeffrey J. Hartnett, 38, of 14947 S. Wilco Drive in Homer Glen, was charged with battery on Jan. 8 after he allegedly struck a 43-year-old male customer while working at the Circle K at 12810 W. 143rd St. in Homer Glen, according to police. Upon arrival, deputies spoke to the customer, who said that he stopped in the gas station to buy beer, lottery tickets and gas, which he did routinely. When Hartnett reportedly told the man his total that was owed, the customer questioned that it was 75 cents more than it normally was and then put the change on the counter.
