A man broke three cash registers with his bare hands early Wednesday morning after becoming angry when asked to leave Burger King, according to an Evanston Police Department report.

William L. Lucas, 57, who is homeless, was charged with felony criminal damage to property and misdemeanor criminal trespass at Burger King, 1740 Orrington Ave., according to the EPD report.

The incident began when Lucas entered Burger King shortly after 5 a.m. Wednesday and asked for change, the report stated. When the manager asked him to leave because of a previous incident in the restaurant, Lucas allegedly became extremely agitated and began damaging the cash registers.

The total cost of repairs to the cash registers is $2,686, according to an invoice provided to police.

Lucas fled the restaurant but officers found him on the corner of Church Street and Benson Avenue, according to the report. He is scheduled to appear May 20 at Circuit Court in Skokie.
