A convicted felon and documented gang member was behind bars Tuesday after Moline police responded to a report of an unruly person.
Police arrived shortly after 1 a.m. Saturday to the Stoney Creek Hotel on the 100 block of 18th Street to find 20-year-old David Torres III, of Moline, on the third floor.
