CWB Chicago reported:
Prosecutors said a Chicago police sergeant suffered a torn eardrum and possibly a broken thumb after Chyna Scales, 20, punched him in the head in the 3300 block of North Clark Street around 8:30 p.m. Police responded to the area to disperse a crowd of people that had overtaken the street and began twerking in the roadway and on vehicles.
Scales became upset when police arrested two of her relatives and tried to open a squad car door to let them out, prosecutor Steven Haamid said. She then blocked the police car’s path and refused to move, Haamid said.
When an officer tried to move Scales, she allegedly punched him in the left ear. He was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center for treatment, according to CPD.
Scales has never been arrested before. Her public defender, Suzin Farber, said she works full-time in construction.
Judge Maryam Ahmad said Scales could go home with a 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. curfew by paying a $500 bail deposit.
Two other women, both accused of punching cops who asked them to stop dancing on CPD squad cars, received stricter bail conditions.
Kori Bender, 22, and two other women climbed onto an unmarked police car and started dancing, but Bender refused to get off the vehicle when cops asked, Haamid said. Once an officer removed her, she allegedly struck him in the face. He had no visible signs of injury and did not need medical attention, according to Haamid.
Bender later admitted that she was twerking on the police car and “muffed” the officer, Haamid said. She has no criminal background.
Judge Ahamad did not like some of the things she heard.
“The court has concerns when I hear public safety is affronted, which is what occurred when, according to the people, you climbed up on the car and started twerking,” Ahmad told Bender.
She ordered her to pay a $700 bail deposit to go home on electronic monitoring.
Jennifer Jackson, 29, allegedly punched an officer in the face and ran when he tried to push her out of the way of traffic as cops were clearing people from the roadway in the 3100 block of North Clark around 10 p.m., Haamid said.
He said she told arresting officers something to the effect of, “Who hasn’t struck an officer at some point?”
