Police responded to The Lantern, 8 W. Chicago Ave., around 12:30 a.m. early Wednesday morning in an attempt to escort Darcie M. Ingerson, 22, of the 1900 block of Carlsbad Circle, out of the bar and into an awaiting taxi, police said.

Ingerson was allegedly "highly-intoxicated" and refused to leave after being asked several times by both police and staff. Police said she then became violent, kicking the officer several times in the leg and groin. 

After a brief struggle, Ingerson was arrested and allegedly kicked the officer again before being put into a squad car, police said.

Ingerson was charged with aggravated battery, resisting a peace officer and criminal trespass to real property, police said.

Her court date is not known at this time.

What happened to NOT over serving a customer? I'll believe the story about the bar asking her to leave if they can prove it on the cameras that run during business hours. Over serve then when you can't handle to situation YOU, the BAR created, you ask the patron to leave and call police and of course it can be proven that you denied her service, knowing she was already highly intoxicated. Some poor officer, who should've been out policing the streets gets kicked.......

My, how pious of you Mr. Clarke. Maybe the woman was at a table and others were buying the liquor for her? Maybe she showed up already drunk? Maybe there were dozens of others customers and the bartender just didn't have the time to analyze the situation using his Ninja skills developed with his/her bartending and behavioral anthropology degree from Harvard? For some odd reason people like you believe the bartenders of America are ever vigilant in their efforts to protect the people of the country, this from someone that probably didn't graduate high school, can't work at K-Mart because of the drug test, and on most nights probably drinks more than they serve. Maybe we should have your highly experienced eyes and ears on the situation where you seem to be able to determine who and who will not cause trouble in a bar. You certainly have the nose for it.

BTW- was only charged with a single misdemeanor for resisting the officer. No conviction of a felony on record anywhere! xoxo
