Woman charged after injuring Racine County Sheriff's Deputy during arrest
RACINE COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Sydney Stieg, a 22-year-old Silver Lake woman, is now facing several charges after injuring an officer during her arrest.
Stieg faces charges of battery to law enforcement, resisting an officer, and disorderly conduct stemming from an incident on Sunday.
According to the criminal complaint, a Racine County Sheriff's Deputy responded to a home on Fox Grove Drive for a report of an unwanted party, later identified as Stieg. The caller told police that the woman was his ex-girlfriend and would not leave his home.
Police located Stieg attempting to get into her vehicle. The deputy could detect a strong odor of intoxicants and took a hold of Stieg's arm in an attempt to handcuff her.
According to the complaint, Stieg began to actively resist, calling the deputy an F****** A******. The deputy was able to handcuff the defendant and attempted to hold her until backup squads arrived. Stieg then began to "mule kick" at the deputy, narrowly missing his groin. When the deputy told Stieg to stop, she kicked again, this time striking his left kneecap, causing him to buckle over in pain and fall backward.
The deputy was able to hold onto Stieg until backup deputies arrived.
Stieg admitted to consuming alcohol before driving herself to her ex-boyfriend's resident.
Stieg also told deputies that she "should have just hit him [the officer] in the f****** jaw." Stieg also said she heard the officer telling her to stop resisting and that she "kicked that mother f***** twice" and that "F**** yeah I tried to hurt him."
When asked if she thought she had hurt the deputy, she said yes "the second time I got him pretty good" while she made a fist and pumped her arm in the air.
