Our colleague here at the Sun-Times, Mark Konkol, reports that Johnny Macchione of Bartlett turned himself in to police today. Chicago Police charged the 21-year-old Macchione Thursday night with one count each of battery and illegal conduct within a sports facility. Both are misdemeanor charges.

Police say Macchione threw a beer on Shane Victorino's head during the fifth inning of Wednesday night's blowout. A fan was immediately hauled away -- but it was the wrong fan. News sites and blogs splashed Macchione's photo up all day, and he turned himself in to Belmont area detectives this afternoon.

Deadspin shares with us this photo of the now-infamous Cub fan:
