SYCAMORE – A woman accused of kicking and spitting on Sandwich police officers remains DeKalb County Jail after a judge ordered her held on bond.

Kimberly Rice, 31, no fixed address, was charged with aggravated battery to a police officer and resisting a police officer after she was picked up on an Ogle County failure-to-appear warrant in the early morning of Nov. 2, according to court records.

If convicted of the most serious charge of aggravated battery to a police officer, she faces up to seven years in prison.

According to court documents, Rice was picked up at 1:15 a.m. Nov. 2 on an Ogle County warrant. She was uncooperative with police officers, according to court documents, refusing transport to DeKalb County Jail, slumping down and pretending to pass out in a chair as they tried to wheel her to a squad car.

While on the ground, one police officer attempted to pick up her legs to help her move when she kicked him near his left eye and in the forehead, according to court records, leaving him dazed.

Still on the ground, Rice kicked the legs of another police officer and then later elbowed him in the chest, according to court records. After she was in the squad car, she kicked the door and was placed in leg restraints, according to court records, before she spit on the officer she previously kicked in the head.

Judge Phillip Montgomery ordered Rice held on $20,000 bond. She would need $2,000 to get out of jail.
