William Ligue Junior was arrested early Thursday morning by police in the Chicago suburb of Harvey.
Cook County State's Attorney spokesman Jerry Lawrence says Ligue broke into a car parked near Papa Italiano's Pizza and stole a stereo CD player.
Ligue is serving 30 months of probation for the 2002 attack on Kansas City Royals coach Tom Gamboa. His son was sentenced to five years probation.
Ligue is scheduled to appear in court this morning for a bond hearing.
