Villa Park Trustee Robert Taglia

Villa Park trustee Robert Taglia was found guilty of disorderly conduct Friday after a neighbor filed a complaint following an incident last September, according to media reports.

Taglia, 42, of the 100 block of North Washington Avenue, was convicted at the Addison branch of the DuPage County Court after he apparently shouted at his neighbor after her son hit his 4-year old son with a plastic baseball bat, the reports said.

According to police reports, Taglia's child was playing with other kids on Sept. 6 when the neighbor's child, 10, hit him with a toy bat. Taglia confronted the boy's mother, pounding on her front door, yelling and pointing her finger inches from her face. Taglia called the police and paramedics to the scene to respond to his son, where the boy was treated at the scene for a small abrasion.

The trustee was placed on supervision and sentenced to 30 hours of community service and pay a $150 fine, according to media reports.
