ROSELLE, Ill. (WBBM) – A woman reportedly is considering contacting a lawyer, after a northwest suburban bar kicked her out because she’s pregnant.
As WBBM Newsradio 780’s Bernie Tafoya reports, Michelle Lee, 29, is eight months pregnant. She says she was with a friend, and was only drinking water last week at the Coach House, at 300 N. Roselle Rd. near Roselle.

At one point, however, Lee said a bouncer pulled her aside and asked her if she was pregnant, according to the Chicago Tribune. When she answered she was, Lee says the bouncer told her she had to leave.
The bouncer reportedly said the bar did not want to be responsible if something happened to Lee, if a fight broke out or something else.
Lee said she felt humiliated.
The Illinois Restaurant Association says pregnant women cannot be discriminated against in such a fashion. No one from the bar has issued a comment.
