Deputies and the North Maine Fire Department responded to the resident's 911 call and escorted Barton outside, the release said. She's accused of then kicking a police sergeant in the chest and biting a patrol officer's right hand. The patrol officer was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Barton was hospitalized because of her level of intoxication and later released into police custody, authorities said. Along with the aggravated battery charges, she faces a felony criminal trespass to residence charge.

She appeared in bond court Monday morning in Skokie, where a judge set bail at $5,000. Barton is due back in court May 16.
