LIBERTYVILLE — A local woman who left her 3-year-old daughter in a running car while shopping at a Walgreens later cursed out a concerned witness who called police and resisted arrest, according to police.
On Feb. 24, a man called police when he saw the girl in an unlocked, unattended vehicle that was parked and running at the Walgreens at 1770 N. Milwaukee Ave., according to a report from Libertyville police.
The caller told police he had been waiting next to the car for two or three minutes for the driver to return.
Police went to the Walgreens and when 23-year-old Danielle A. Barbour exited the store, they questioned her and found her driver’s license was suspended, the report said.
Barbour then became “enraged,” according to police, and started to yell obscenities at the man who had called police. She was placed under arrest and resisted officers in the process, the report said.
She was charged with disorderly conduct, assault and resisting a peace officer. She also was ticketed for driving while her license was suspended.
The 3-year-old was not harmed and was turned over to her grandmother, police said.
Barbour was released on a $1,500 personal recognizance bond and is scheduled to appear in Lake County Circuit Court.
