We previously discussed the bizarre case of Cook County prosecutor, Sarah Naughton, who was involved in a drunken, swearing, biting incident at a sex shop after a Cubs game. The Illinois Supreme Court has now accepted a consent suspension for Naughton.
Naughton and her friend, Bradley Gould, 31, were reportedly intoxicated after the Cubs game and visited Taboo Tabou, which advertises itself as a “Purveyors of Adult Accoutrements, Toys and Lingerie.” Witnesses say that the two were causing a disturbance and was asked to leave the shop. Once outside, witnesses say that the couple were flipping the bird at everyone walking by and “acting like jackasses.” When the manager of the business next door The Blue Havana Cigar Lounge reportedly confronted the couple, Naughton allegedly bit him in the leg.
Worse yet, the owner of both stores says that when he told them that they had to leave, Naughton pulled out her badge and said “You can’t do this to me. Do you know who I am?” Then there was that little matter of the videotape reportedly showing Naughton under arrest and calling the arresting officer a “b—h” and a “whore.”
A cigar store employee confronted the women and Naughton “fell to the ground at the cigar store employee’s feet and grabbed his legs. She then got up and began yelling that she had been assaulted.”
Both women were arrested and Naughton allegedly kept saying that she was a prosecutor and swearing at the female office and generally “screaming obscenities.”
Naughton was acquitted of misdemeanor battery and criminal trespassing (including an allegation that she allegedly bit a man’s leg). The acquittal raised some suggestions of favoritism due to Naughton’s powerful political connections described as family ties to Ed Vrdolyak and the South Side Joyce clan.”
