Chicago woman arrested 396 times since 1978
A published report says a Chicago woman has been arrested at least 396 times since 1978, including for an alleged attack on an alderman.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports Shermain Miles has been charged for disorderly conduct and attempted robbery, among other things. She's used at least 83 different aliases.
The 51-year-old is imprisoned in Lincoln. She was arrested last year after allegedly chasing down Chicago Alderman James Cappleman. It's a possible parole violation for a 2010 conviction for robbing a 75-year-old at knife point. She's due in front of the Illinois Prisoner Review Board this week.
Merchants and resident on Chicago's North Side are familiar with Miles. One florist called police about her 25 times last summer.
Miles declined an interview, but in a letter described her renewed faith.
