A 22-year-old Sussex woman is facing charges after she allegedly barged into a closed tavern, began to scream hysterically and hide under a pool table because she lost her cell phone while out drinking with her aunt.
Holly A. Grass was charged in Monday with one count of disorderly conduct and one count of resisting an officer. If convicted, she faces up to one year in prison and $11,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
At 2:30 a.m. Monday, an employee at was taking out the trash after the tavern closed when Grass entered through an unlocked back door and began screaming at another woman. Grass was extremely intoxicated and then laid under a pool table and continued to cry, yell and scream hysterically.
A bartender and Grass’s aunt tried to convice her to leave, but she refused, so Waukesha County sheriff’s deputies were called to the bar.
Her aunt said they had been out drinking and she was about to drive them home when Grass noticed her cell phone was missing. Grass then became aggressive and refused to leave without the phone, so she went back into the bar.
Deputies offered Grass an opportunity to get up and leave, but she refused to get out from underneath the pool table. Officers then informed her she was being placed under arrest, but she continued to resist.
As soon as he opened the back door of the squad, Grass tried to kick him...
Once out at a squad car, Grass refused to get in and had to be forced in by the deputies. She then refused to submit to a Breathalyzer test and they began to take her to Waukesha County Jail.
However, Grass continued to be disruptive on the drive. She took off her seatbelt, and then tried to swoop her hands underneath her legs to get her arms in front of her. The deputy then pulled over, and as soon as he opened the back door of the squad, Grass tried to kick him, so a second squad was called so they could place her in a hobble restraint.
Once at the jail, Grass continued to be verbally abusive towards staff.
She’s currently free on a $1,000 signature bond while awaiting trial.
