An unusual, early-morning incident involving a slammed pamphlet holder in a hospital's front lobby resulted disorderly conduct charges leveled against a St. Charles man.
Geneva police arrested George Ghawi, 35, of St. Charles for disorderly conduct at around 1 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 14, in the 300 block of South Randall Road, Geneva police reports said.

Ghawi has a court date of Sept. 18 at the Kane County Branch Court, 530 S. Randall Road, St. Charles.
