Former Buffalo Grove Trustee Lisa Stone was arrested Friday by Mundelein police on allegations she violated an order of protection obtained by her stepmother last month.

Mundelein Police Chief Eric Guenther confirmed the arrest Sunday, and said Stone later was released after posting 10 percent of a $10,000 bond.

The charge, a Class A misdemeanor, alleges Stone contacted her father, Hurd Shuman, through an unnamed third party, Guenther said. That violates a Feb. 7 protective order obtained by her stepmother, Mundelein resident Barbara Shuman.

In a petition seeking the order, Barbara Shuman states Stone repeatedly made threatening and verbally abusive telephone calls in early February. Stone, she said, threatened to "bring FBI and other agencies to take away my husband to a nursing home (and) file charges against me (and) my son for elder abuse."

"I fear that her behavior is escalating and I am afraid/terrified that she will show up at my house and hurt me and/or my husband," Shuman states.

Stone could not be reached for comment Sunday.

She recently was the subject of a complaint by Village President Jeffrey Braiman, who said she called him in the middle of the night, according to Buffalo Grove police.

Stone was elected trustee in 2009, but recalled by Buffalo Grove residents in a historic 2010 vote.

If found guilty of the misdemeanor charge, Stone could face a maximum of a year in jail and $2,500 fine, though court supervision also is possible. She is scheduled to appear in court March 21.
