As part of the agreement admitting her to the program, Duncan must serve 20 days in the DuPage Sheriff's Work Alternative Program, do 50 hours of community service, write a letter of apology, refrain from alcohol, attend anger management classes and get a job.

If after a year Duncan has met all expectations, the state's attorney's office will dismiss the charges. If not, she will be prosecuted on the original charges of aggravated battery of a police officer, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

According to prosecutors, an intoxicated Duncan became belligerent about 12:20 a.m. on Jan. 1 when security staff at a downtown Naperville bar denied her entrance when she refused to pay the $20 cover charge.

After security turned Duncan away, officers saw her urinate near the entrance and arrested her. Prosecutors said Duncan resisted arrest when she "backhanded" an officer at the scene and later kicked the officer in the leg during the booking process.
