The son of former Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka is due to appear in court next month on a battery charge.

Michael P. Ditka, 53, of Deerfield, was arrested at Rivers Casino in Des Plaines Saturday. His lawyer said the charge is a misdemeanor and grew out of an argument.

The younger Ditka pleaded guilty to misdemeanor battery in 1998 and has had other runs-in with the law in Lake County.
