Police say a woman escaped from a squad car after she was arrested for battering a police officer at a grocery store in McHenry.
Court documents show the McHenry Police Department responded to Angelo’s Fresh Market, 4400 West Elm Street in McHenry, on Tuesday.
A woman, identified as Heather A. Doyle, 34, caused a disturbance and disturbed customers after she screamed “sexual harassment” inside the front of the store, according to a criminal complaint.
Doyle, of the 9000 block of North Greenwood Avenue in Hebron, also kicked an officer in his left leg and then began resisting arrest, the complaint said.
Doyle resisted multiple officers by kicking, shoving and pulling away from them, the complaint said.
Officers eventually took the woman into custody and placed her in a squad car.
Doyle “defeated” handcuffs, escaped from the back of the squad car and attempted to run away from the scene, the complaint said.
Officers were able to take the woman into custody again and transport her to the McHenry County Jail.
McHenry County Judge Tiffany Davis ordered Doyle held on a $20,000 bond, meaning she would need to post $2,000 cash in order to be released.
A bond hearing is scheduled for Friday.
