Second Domestic Battery Call At Home Of State Senator

LAKE VILLA (CBS) — A call of a domestic battery at the north suburban home of State Sen. Suzanne “Suzi” Schmidt and her husband prompted a visit from Lake County Sheriff’s police for the second time in about six weeks.

As in the previous visit to the home at 38532 Ardmore Lane in Lake Villa, which occurred on Aug. 16, no charges were filed, police said.

At approximately 6:30 p.m. Monday, Lake County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the home for a report of a domestic battery, a release from the sheriff’s office said.

Deputies met with Robert Schmidt and Suzanne Schmidt and conducted an investigation, but the Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office declined to file charges, Sheriff’s Police Chief Wayne Hunter said.

In the previous incident, which occurred about 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 16, sheriff’s deputies were summoned by 63-year-old Robert Schmidt to the home, where they took statements from both Suzanne Schmidt, 60, and her husband about an argument.

No arrests were made and no charges filed in relation to that incident, either, Hunter said.

Suzanne Schmidt, a freshman Republican senator, was former chairman of the Lake County Board before being elected to the General Assembly in 2010.
