The Minooka Police Department arrested a local woman accused of battering an officer.

Lucyna Owierczuk, 53, of Minooka has been charged with Aggravated Battery to a Police Officer, a class two felony.

Minooka Police Chief Justin Meyer said his department was called to the 100 block of East St. Mary’s Street for a domestic disturbance around 11:40 p.m. on July 3.

During an investigation, Meyer said Owierczuk became uncooperative and allegedly slammed a sliding glass door into an officer’s foot after an officer's unsuccessful attempts to speak with her. 

Owierczuk remains free on a $15,000 bond.

Meanwhile, in early July of 2018, Meyer said Owierczuk battered a live-in boyfriend and threatened to cause harm to the arresting officer as well as their family members.

Owierczuk was charged with Domestic Battery and Threatening a Public Official, a class 3 felony.

However, those charges were dismissed as part of a plea agreement and Owierczuk pleaded guilty to Obstructing a Police Officer. 

She was sentenced to two years conditional discharge and served six days in the Grundy County Jail.
