Naperville's first police report of the year begins with officers observing an intoxicated woman urinating outside the entrance to a downtown bar.

It ends with Willette T. Duncan, 27, of Chicago, charged with one felony count of aggravated battery to a police officer, as well as misdemeanors of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

Early Wednesday morning, about 20 minutes after partygoers counted down to the new year, officers patrolling downtown observed security staff at a bar on Chicago Avenue in downtown Naperville deny entrance to a woman who was refusing to pay the $20 cover charge, Sgt. Bill Davis said.

After security turned the woman away, the officers saw her begin urinating near the entrance. Davis said they stepped in to place her under arrest and she resisted.

The woman, identified as Duncan, "was very uncooperative" and when officers took her to the police station, she kicked one of them, authorities said.

"There was no real injury to the officer, but it was a deliberate kick," Davis said.

The kick caused police to charge Duncan with aggravated battery to a police officer, in addition to charges of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
