A Johnsburg woman was charged after she allegedly made a 911 call falsely reporting a reckless driver and then resisted arrest when officers tried to arrest her in Johnsburg.
Jasmine M. Caldwell, 31, of the 3700 block of Spring Grove Road in Johnsburg, was charged with false alarm or complaint to 911, a Class 4 felony, and resisting a peace officer, a Class A misdemeanor.
A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court said that Caldwell called 911 on Thursday.
Caldwell stated she was in a vehicle and was following a red Jeep that was driving “all over the roadway,” the criminal complaint said.
Caldwell knew there were “no reasonable grounds for making the call” and knew that it could result in the emergency response of police, the complaint said.
Caldwell allegedly resisted arrest from officers when she shut her front door and actively held the door closed.
Officers with the Johnsburg Police Department were eventually able to arrest the woman and transported her to the McHenry County Jail.
Caldwell was released from the jail Saturday morning after posting 10% of a $10,000 bond.
A court hearing is next scheduled for Tuesday in the case.
