SKOKIE, Ill. (STMW) — A reportedly intoxicated woman entered the wrong northwest suburban home early Sunday, then kicked and bit police officers who escorted her out after the homeowner called for help.

Around 5:45 a.m. Sunday, Cook County Sheriff’s deputies and the North Maine Fire Department were called to a home in the 8800 block of Robin Drive in unincorporated Maine Township.

The homeowner called 911 to report that a stranger was inside her home, a statement from the sheriff’s office said.

Officers found 22-year-old Jenelle Barton inside the home, and led her outside, the statement said. Officers said she appeared to be “highly intoxicated.”

On the way to a squad car, Barton kicked a police sergeant in the chest and bit another on the right hand, according to the statement. The bitten officer was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Barton was also taken to a hospital “due to her level of intoxication,” the statement said. She was later released into police custody.

She is charged with criminal trespass to a residence and two counts of aggravated battery to a police officer, all felonies, police said.

During a bond hearing Monday in Skokie, she was ordered held on $5,000, and is scheduled to next appear in court May 16.
