A Chicago man arrested in connection with a Bolingbrook robbery was sentenced to six months in jail for using profanity, yelling and disrupting a court hearing on his bond.

On Jan. 10, 34-year-old Peter J. McCloud was arrested after Bolingbrook police said he brandished a knife to steal someone’s personal property in the 200 block of South Bolingbrook Drive.

Officers said they found McCloud in possession of a knife and the stolen property.

McCloud was booked into the Will County jail on probable cause of armed robbery, aggravated robbery, robbery, aggravated battery and theft.

During a hearing on McCloud’s bond, Will County Judge Chrystel Gavlin found him in direct criminal contempt of court “for using profanity, yelling and disrupting the court proceedings,” according to the court order.

Gavlin sentenced McCloud to 180 days in jail.

She set his bond at $100,000 and ordered him to have no contact with the complainant.

On July 29, 2015, McCloud was arrested by a Will County Sheriff’s deputy for spitting in a corrections officer’s face.

McCloud pleaded guilty to the charge about four months later and he was sentenced to six years in prison, with credit for 89 days already served, according to court records.

McCloud also was previously convicted of robbery and residential arson, according to records.
