A woman is facing felony charges after she allegedly kicked a police officer in the groin and bit him on his arm after crashing her car in Woodstock, court records show.
Ana G. Ramirez, 25, of the 100 block of East Melody Lane in Woodstock, was charged with two counts of aggravated battery to a peace officer, two counts of driving under the influence of alcohol and failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.
Ramirez crashed into another vehicle around 1 a.m. on October 19 in the 800 block of Pleasant Street in Woodstock, court records show.
Officers were investigating whether Ramirez was driving while intoxicated at the time of the crash.
Officers noted in their report that Ramirez had slurred speech while talking, was unable to maintain balance and admitted to being drunk.
A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court alleges Ramirez battered two police officers.
The first officer was kicked in the groin by Ramirez, the complaint said, adding that the woman bit the officer on the arm.
Ramirez kicked a second officer twice in his inner thighs, the complaint said.
Ramirez was ordered held on a $40,000 bond by McHenry County Judge Tiffany Davis.
Ramirez was transported to the McHenry County Jail where she was released from the jail after posting $4,000 cash.
Court records show the woman was on probation at the time of her arrest for a 2020 case in Woodstock.
In that case, Ramirez was charged with multiple counts of aggravated battery to a pregnant person and domestic battery.
She pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge in the case and received one year of probation.
Prosecutors have since filed a petition to revoke her probation.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for December 2.
