County Prosecutor Accused of Biting Man's Leg Outside Lingerie Shop

Sarah Naughton, 31, of Chicago, was arrested Saturday outside a Lakeview lingerie shop

A Cook County prosecutor has been charged with misdemeanor battery and criminal trespassing after she allegedly bit a man's leg over the weekend.

Sarah Naughton, 31, of Chicago, was arrested Saturday outside a Lakeview lingerie shop, according to Chicago Police News Affairs.

Witnesses told authorities Naughton and another man appeared intoxicated and were causing a disturbance inside Taboo Tabou, at 854 W. Belmont Ave., at about 7:45 p.m. Saturday.

They were asked to leave and were on the sidewalk outside the store when the man allegedly shoved the manager of the next-door store, the Blue Havana cigar lounge, officials said. Naughton then allegedly bit the Blue Havana manager in the leg, breaking the skin, according to authorities.

Mark Thomas, owner of both stores, said his employees told him Naughton pulled out a badge while she was in Taboo Tabou and said, "You can’t do this to me. Do you know who I am?"

In a video posted to YouTube, a woman -- purportedly Naughton -- yelled at an officer and complained that she couldn't feel her hands because the cuffs were too tight.

Naughton's employer is conducting an internal investigation. She won’t be allowed to litigate while her case is pending, said Sally Daly, a spokeswoman for the Cook County state’s attorney’s office.

Naughton has been an employee of the state’s attorney’s office for eight years. Earlier this month, she won the conviction of Dawn Hamill, the owner of a southwest suburban animal-rescue facility, on animal-abuse charges.
