A Cook County prosecutor was arrested and charged with misdemeanor battery and misdemeanor criminal trespass, accused of becoming disruptive and biting a worker when asked to leave an adult store over the weekend.
The incident took place at Taboo Tabou on Chicago’s North Side on Saturday evening.
Quoting from the police report, the Tribune reports that Naughton “became belligerent” and bit a worker, leaving a welt on his leg. Naughton’s companion, Bradley Gould, was also arrested.
The owner of the Taboo Tabou and a neighboring store told reporters that Naughton flashed her badge to employees and said, “You can’t do this to me. Do you know who I am?’
The Chicago Sun-Times notes that Naughton has been an employee of the state’s attorney’s office for eight years.
