    Dennis Nicholl, 63, faces felony charges of interfering with cellphone calls using a signal jamming device on Chicago's Red Line.
    A crotchety Chicago who became man notorious among commuters for riding the train with a cell phone jammer and a pack of beer, faces felony charges for using the signal blocking device to get some peace on his way home.
    Dennis Nicholl was arrested Tuesday for using a cell phone jammer on the metro because “he was disturbed by people talking around him,” his attorney, Charles Lauer, told the Chicago Tribune.
    The 63-year-old financial planner for the University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System had become well-known among commuters on Chicago metro’s Red Line after they realized their calls would drop and noticed the black bulky device with antennas on Nicholl's lap..
    Some commuters also noticed a six-pack of Old Style at his feet, as seen in photos that circulated online for months.

    Nicholl admitted to police that he 'gets annoyed by people' having conversations on their phone around him.
    Nicholl was finally busted after undercover officers set up a sting operation and deployed a plainclothes cop to commute alongside him.
    The inconspicuous cop made a phone call and, when it dropped due to Nicholl’s device, he handcuffed him at the next stop
    Nicholl admitted to police that he “gets annoyed at people talking on their cell phones while riding on” Chicago’s transit system, according to the police report.

    It's illegal to use cell phone jammers in public and can lead to hefty fines up to $16,000 per violation or prison time.
    Cell phone jammers can disrupt all signals in their immediate surroudings, causing calls to suddenly drop—people who use them illegally can face prison time and significant fines, up to $16,000 for each violation, according to the FCC.
    The judge on Nicholl's case dubbed the irritable commuter the “cellphone police” and set a hefty $10,000 bail .
    Nicholl’s lawyer said that the harmless man was just trying to get some peace and quiet on his ride home.

    Nicholl, a financial analyst at a Chicago hospital, had become notorious among Chicago commuters for riding the metro with a six pack of beer and a cell phone jammer.
    “He might have been selfish in thinking about himself, but he didn’t have any malicious intent,” Lauer said.
    Nicholl posted bond and left jail on Wednesday.
