In the video of the June 14 incident, which has since been widely circulated online, Trybus is heard repeatedly questioning the woman's citizenship and told her she shouldn't be wearing her Puerto Rican flag shirt.
"After a review of the case, we approved felony hate crimes charges", said Robert Foley, spokesman for the Cook County State's Attorney's Office.
Timothy G. Trybus, the man police say harassed Irizarry, was arrested on the day of the incident on charges of assault and disorderly conduct, according to a police report.
Trybus is scheduled for his first court appearance August 1, the Cook County Circuit Court said.
Irizarry recorded the encounter on her phone, saying she felt threatened, and posted the video to Facebook. "The United States of America is a nation that was built and thrives on diversity".
"Officer, I'm renting this area and he's harassing me about the shirt I'm wearing, ' Irizzary then tells the cop, who had already been called to the scene to investigate Trybus" intoxicated behavior. I do not feel comfortable with him here.
"It was truly appalling, gut wrenching and a real wake up call", Cook County Commissioner Luis Arroyo Jr. said. "Are you a United States citizen?"
The officer resigned Wednesday, and the investigation into the incident continues, the agency said. While Trybus shouts at her, points at her face and follows her around part of the park, Connor can be seen standing about 20 feet away with his hands against his chest.
What unfolds over the 30-minutes is a man physically and verbally intimidating a very polite and poised 24 year old American woman, while a uniformed police officer stands by and does nothing to intervene or help. As Trybus continues to harass her other officers arrived and a female police officer finally steps in on behalf of Irizarry.
