Special prosecutor from Springfield who handled the domestic battery case against Democratic state House candidate Natalie Manley dismissed the matter in August.
A series of fortunate events in the three months following Natalie Manley’s arrest on suspicion she battered her adult daughter resulted in the Democrat state rep candidate emerging from her legal ordeal with virtually no trace she spent a night in jail and faced possible prosecution. There is no criminal complaint against Manley on file in the office of the Will County Circuit Clerk, nor is there a misdemeanor case, despite Manley’s arrest on probable cause for domestic battery. Manley also was spared the indignity of a bond hearing in open court, posting $300 for her release from the Will County Jail after First Assistant State’s Attorney Ken Grey got together with Chief Judge Gerald Kinney to appoint a special prosecutor from …

In a statement, Manley asks for privacy: "Many parents have had to learn how to love their kids while not enabling inappropriate behavior," candidate says.
Updated at 4:38 a.m. May 9. A local Democratic contender for a new Illinois House of Representatives seat is facing a domestic battery charge. Natalie Manley, 50, a Joliet accountant and candidate in the 98th District race, was arrested Tuesday by Joliet police at her home in the 3100 block of Ingalls Avenue. Police said the arrest stemmed from a dispute Manley had with her 21-year-old daughter. The younger woman reportedly told police she had lost her cell phone and was unable to let her mother know she would be home late. When the 21-year-old did return to the apartment she shares with Manley at around 2 a.m. Tuesday, police said she was attacked by her mother, who “punched, kicked, knocked her to the ground, struck her in the face [and…

The Shorewood police carted three people down to the county jail in one day!
A Shorewood cop hit a lucky number when he ran a Joliet man's plate and learned the driver's license had been suspended, police said. Michael Coffman, 32, of 1104 Plaza Drive was pulled over about 10:30 p.m. near the intersection of Route 59 and Vertin Boulevard. The Shorewood officer not only arrested Coffman on a charge of driving while license suspended, but also took him into custody on a pair of warrants. The warrants — out of Kankakee County and Palos Heights — charge Coffman with "traffic offenses," police said. Coffman couldn't come up with bond and was hauled down to the Will County jail, police said. A local man was arrested at his home on a charge of domestic battery. Russell Gombash, 48, of 516 Sean Drive was taken into custody…

Local teen Taylor Brown took two domestic battery raps in the last two months.
Last month, local teen Taylor Brown bought a trip to the county jail in connection with biting up her boyfriend. Last weekend, she went back after police said she scratched a relative. Brown, 19, of 1003 Layne Court, was booked into custody Sunday on charges of domestic battery and underage drinking. Brown scratched and grabbed Randall Brown, according to court records. The two Browns are reportedly related. Shorewood police have released no information on Taylor Brown's alleged attack on Randall Brown. Taylor Brown remains in the Will County jail in Joliet, where she is being held on a $5,000 bond. In June, the county cops collared Taylor Brown for allegedly biting her boyfriend, 24-year-old Elmore Tanner of Joliet. Not only that, police …

Off the record, on the QT, and very hush-hush.
A local woman was locked up on a domestic battery charge. Kimberly Budde, 45, of 226 Parkside Drive was taken into custody about 11 a.m. and transported to the Will County jail. The Shorewood police released no information on who Budde allegedly battered or what she supposedly did to him or her. The cops took down a pair of teenage boys for allegedly walking around town after curfew. The two 15-year-olds were walking near the intersection of North Brookshore Drive and Lancer Court shortly after 2:30 a.m., police said. Officers "observed" the boys, police said, and then exposed them as being too young to be out at that hour. The officers also reportedly discovered one of the youths had some tobacco on him, which seems to be against the law…

The sheriff's department was doing work in Shorewood, arresting two teens inside of four days.
Sheriff's deputies collared a pair of teenage girls from Shorewood and carted them off to the county jail on domestic battery charges in recent days. The county cops first went to work at the 21541 S. River Road home of 18-year-old Shannon Voitik to check out a domestic battery complaint about 7:45 p.m. Friday. The deputies found a 20-year-old man at Voitik's residence who reportedly told of the 5-foot-5, 110-pound Voitik punching him a few times. The cops, including a Will County Forest Preserve Police officer who showed up to lend a hand, then arrested Voitik and took her to the Will County jail in Joliet. Voitik, who is apparently an aspiring model, was released on bond the day after she was booked into custody, according to jail …

We'd figure this guy's eye are lying, since he was in jail and all, but we can't make out what they say.
We were all set to go with a completely different theme for this week's Rogues Gallery, but then we got a look at Mr. Miller over there and scrapped it so we could show him off once again. The Shorewood police picked Miller up about a week ago on a charge of domestic battery. The tight-lipped Shorewood cops didn't give us much else on what Miller supposedly did wrong, besides being from Alabama, so we're all still pretty much in the dark as far as that goes. Shorewood's finest also neglected to tell us what it says in tattoo ink on each of Miller's eyelids. We closely scrutinized the mugshot provided by the sheriff's department, but for the life of us, we can't figure it out. Still, the cryptic message took the staff of the Shorewood Patch…
