A felony charge of aggravated menacing was refiled Friday against a Solon man accused of using a racial slur to refer to a Twinsburg couple at a restaurant in July.

The man, Michael D. Jirousek, 32, had been on post-custodial supervision following a conviction on felony sex-related charges in 2014. That supervision was terminated in September and he was ordered back to prison.

According to an Aurora Police Department report, Jirousek allegedly began swearing at a Twinsburg couple who were at El Camino Mexican Restaurant, 395 N. Aurora Rd., in Aurora, on July 26 around 5:30 p.m.

The couple told police that Jirousek was staring at them in a menacing way and using derogatory language toward them, including calling the woman the n-word. He was charged with misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct and falsification July 30 after he provided a fake name and birth date to officers. 

After officers interviewed the couple, police filed two counts each of first-degree misdemeanor aggravated menacing and fifth-degree felony ethnic intimidation against him Aug. 3. The ethnic intimidation charges were dismissed after Jirousek’s attorney notified the court earlier this month that Jirousek was incarcerated at Grafton Correctional Institution following the July incident.

Jirousek had been on post custodial supervision at the time the charges in July were filed. He had been released after being sentenced to 1 year, 5 months following his 2014 Geauga County conviction on fifth-degree felony felony importuning and fourth-degree felony unlawful sexual conduct with a minor charges.

Jirousek was in the Portage County jail without bond on Monday, when he had been scheduled for a preliminary hearing, according to court files.
