A Chicago woman allegedly refused to leave her workplace in Bolingbrook after being fired, and she kicked an officer in the chest when she was arrested, police said.
At 9:12 p.m. Tuesday, officers were sent to a business on Territorial Court in Bolingbrook after receiving a report of a fired employee causing a disturbance and refusing to leave, Bolingbrook police Lt. Anthony Columbus said.
When the officers arrived, they met with Shantice Ewing, 23, of the 7500 block of South Lafayette Avenue, Chicago. Ewing reportedly had been fired, and she refused to leave the property, Columbus said.
Columbus said Ewing repeatedly refused to leave, which led to company management requesting Ewing be arrested for trespass to property. She was informed she was under arrest, but she allegedly resisted the officers who tried to handcuff her.
When she was handcuffed and escorted to a police squad car, she allegedly refused to be seated in the car and tried to stop officers from placing her in the car and closing the door.
As officers tried to put Ewing in the car, she allegedly kicked an officer in the chest.
She was charged with aggravated battery and resisting a police officer. She then was taken to Will County jail, where she was held on $20,000 bond. She posted bail Thursday.
