Felony charges have been filed against a Waukegan woman who prosecutors say attacked and injured a teacher at an education and daycare center in Grayslake.
Tiarra M. Douglas, 27, of the 1400 block of North Metropolitan Avenue in Waukegan, was charged with two counts of aggravated battery to a school employee, a Class 3 felony.
Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Dino Katris said during a bond hearing that Douglas wanted to press charges against a teacher at KinderCare, 790 North Lake Street in Grayslake.
Douglas claimed the teacher put her hands on her child.
However, the teacher was the one who called 911 to report that Douglas attacked her, Katris said.
Douglas had reportedly pulled up to the school and saw the teacher pull the hand of her child.
The teacher took the action to stop Douglas’ child from getting into a fight with another child, Katris said.
According to Katris, Douglas approached the teacher and said, “B—h, I do not want to see you yank my daughter’s hand.”
Douglas then allegedly grabbed the teacher by her hair and yanked her to the ground.
The teacher went to the Grayslake Victim went to Northwestern Medicine Emergency Center in Grayslake for a neck injury.
The incident occurred on April 28, court records show.
An arrest warrant was issued for Douglas on May 3 and she was arrested on Monday.
Lake County Judge Theodore Potkonjak on Monday ordered Douglas held on an umbrella bond of $30,000.
Douglas has since been released from the Lake County Jail after posting bond.
She is scheduled to appear in court again on July 5 for a preliminary hearing.
