The coroner has identified a man who died after he was kicked out of a bar in Beach Park and punched the window out of the establishment, severely injuring himself, Monday morning.

The Waukegan Police Department and Waukegan Fire Department responded around 1:50 a.m. Monday to the area of Bowen Park, 1800 North Sheridan Road in Waukegan, for a report of a possible stabbing victim.

Officers arrived to find the victim, a 32-year-old Chicago man, critically injured and suffering a major arm wound, according to Lake County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Chief Christopher Covelli.

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office was notified and responded after it was determined the incident happened at a bar in the 37800 block of North Sheridan Road in Beach Park.

A preliminary investigation shows the man, identified as Jonathan Banks, was at the bar when he got into a verbal altercation with another person, Covelli said.

Banks was escorted out of the bar by security staff.

Covelli said the man used his fist to punch through a window near the front door of the business.

Banks suffered a severe laceration to his arm and bled significantly.

Banks asked a friend who was at the bar to drive him to the hospital, Covelli said.

While on the way to the hospital, the man went in and out of consciousness.

After regaining consciousness at one point, Banks grabbed the wheel of the car, causing the driver to strike a curb and a trash can, which disabled the car’s ability to drive, Covelli said.

The man was transported by paramedics to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead.

An autopsy performed Monday showed Banks died as a result of sharp force injuries, according to Lake County Coroner Jennifer Banek.

Lake County sheriff’s detectives continue to investigate the incident but the man’s injury appears to be self-inflicted, Covelli added.
