A Fox River Grove woman allegedly battered five different police officers while they were trying to arrest her during a traffic stop in Crystal Lake, court documents show.
Ellie G. Masukevich, 18, of Fox River Grove, was charged with five counts of aggravated battery to a police officer, two counts of driving under the influence, resisting a peace officer and possession of liquor by a minor.
Court records show officers stopped a 2006 Honda Pilot on westbound Route 14 at Pingree Road in Crystal Lake.
The officers stopped the vehicle around 7 p.m. Tuesday after noticing the Honda commit traffic violations.
Officers determined Masukevich was under the influence of alcohol and attempted to arrest her.
The woman resisted arrest by multiple officers and became combative despite being told to comply, the complaint said.
Masukevich bit two of the officers and spat on two officers, the complaint said.
Masukevich also grabbed an officer’s wrist multiple times and dug her fingernails into an officer’s hands and legs, the complaint added.
Officers also found Masukevich, who is only 18, in possession of alcoholic beverages, court records show.
In addition to her charges, Masukevich was cited for following too closely, improper turn signal, improper traffic lane usage, operating an uninsured motor vehicle and transporting alcohol by a driver.
McHenry County Judge Mark Gerhardt ordered Masukevich held on a $20,000 bond.
Masukevich has since been released from the McHenry County Jail after Judge David Gervais allowed her to be released on a personal recognizance bond.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for December 30.
