An Oak Lawn Village Board trustee’s son has been charged in a domestic battery incident.

Thomas M. Duhig, 43, was charged with one count of domestic battery and one count of interference with a domestic battery report from an incident involving his 17-year-old daughter, according to the Cook County State's Attorney's office.

Duhig is the son of 4th District Trustee Tom Duhig.

According to the Cook County State’s Attorney’s office, Duhig got into an altercation with his daughter around 11 p.m. May 2 on the 9800 block of South Keeler. Duhig is said to have struck his daughter several times as well as smashing a car window.

When his daughter attempted to call 911, Duhig took the phone away from her, a criminal complaint said.

Duhig appeared before Cook County Judge Sheila McGuinnis at the Bridgeview courthouse on May 3. Bail was set at $5,000. As a special condition of his bail, Duhig was ordered to turn over his Firearm Owner’s Identification card and his firearms.

Duhig’s next court appearance is May 26 at the Bridgeview courthouse.
