A Gurnee woman faces aggravated assault charges after she allegedly assaulted a police officer with a "a rigid feminine pleasure device" in the northern suburb.
Carolee Bildsten, 56, allegedly ran out on her tab at Joe's Crab Shack in Gurnee Tuesday night and the police were notified, TribLocal Gurnee reports. It was the second time she had left without paying her tab at the restaurant.
Officers found the intoxicated Bildsten lying on the grass down the street and approached her, NBC Chicago reports. She told them her money was at home and she would pay the bill. NBC cites the police report to explain what happened after arriving at her apartment:
"She walked into her bedroom. She said her money was in her dresser drawer and she opened it and reached inside and removed a "clear, rigid feminine pleasure device" and held it over her head and approached the officer in a threatening manner. The officer knocked the device out of the way prior to being struck and placed the woman under arrest. She was then escorted out of the residence, placed in the squad car and transported to the Gurnee Police Department."
TribLocal reports that Bildsten has been charged with aggravated assault, as well as theft of labor or services.
