Success - Article sent! close

A Palatine couple involved last February in a scuffle with police officers pleaded guilty to amended charges Monday in a Rolling Meadows courtroom.

A Cook County judge sentenced Mark Haze, 45, and Lisa Haze, 43, each to 18 months of conditional discharge in exchange for their guilty pleas to the misdemeanor charge of resisting a police officer.

A conditional discharge means a defendant must comply with the court's conditions but does not have to report for probation.

The judge also ordered Mark Haze to pay $574 in fines and ordered Lisa Haze to play $374 in fines.

Police officers were investigating an unrelated complaint about midnight on Feb. 25 when they noticed an intoxicated couple, prosecutors said during the defendants' February bond hearing.

Authorities said Mark Haze resisted arrest and grabbed at a firearm belonging to one of the officers, prompting the officer to subdue him with a stun gun.

Lisa Haze pushed one officer and grabbed another when they tried to arrest her husband, authorities said.
