The son of Illinois Senate President John Cullerton is in trouble with the law again.

Twenty-eight-year-old Garritt Cullerton is charged with misdemeanor simple assault.

Police say Cullerton threatened to punch a bouncer at the Innjoy bar in Wicker Park Sunday night.

Back in January 2011, Cullerton pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor DUI charge. He was also charged with DUI in 2004 and 2008, but not convicted.
