A drunken walk to Kenosha ends badly for a New York woman while she was with a man from California and his dog in Mount Pleasant.
Aston Sophie Miller, 22, of Staten Island, N.Y. is facing charges after she became belligerent with police officers in Mount Pleasant Tuesday. Miller was reportedly drunk and walking to a friend’s house in Kenosha with a California man.
She was charged in Racine County Circuit Court Wednesday with one count of resisting an officer and one count of disorderly conduct. If convicted, she faces up to one year in prison and $11,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
At 4:49 p.m. Tuesday, police were called for a welfare check after someone spotted what they thought were two men walking near Continental Avenue and Durand Avenue. A caller said one of the men kept falling down.
When police arrived they found Miller, who was determined to be a large woman, lying on the ground accompanied by a man with a backpack and a dog.
The man told police he met Miller on Criagslist, and they travel around doing odd jobs. Neither of them have family in the area. He said Miller began to drink whiskey and beer when she woke up and they were trying to walk to a friend’s in Kenosha when police found them. The man said Miller kept falling down because she was so intoxicated, so the man pulled her off the road, but she continued to sit down and cry.
Miller began swearing at police and the man with her, then asked to be taken to jail. She then got up and began to punch a Menard’s sign until three police officers attempted to break her free of the sign and handcuff her.
One officer then tried to give Miller a Breathalyzer test, but she slapped it out of his hand and she had to be taken to the ground. She tried to kick the officers but was eventually restrained and taken to Wheaton Franciscan Hospital for a blood test.
At the hospital, Miller continued to swear and resist officials even after being handcuffed to a bed. Four security officers had to hold her down while she was in the bed because to her resistance.
Miller had a blood alcohol level of 0.29 and was then taken to Racine County Jail. She was assigned a $300 signature bond while awaiting trial.
