Upon ar rival at the jail, my daughter-in law was charged with MIP (Minor in Possession), fingerprinted, photographed and put in a cell We were charged $200 in cash for her release and she still has to appear in court before the judge for final disposition of her case (All this for one wine cooler which she never drank ) In summary, the situation created by the insensitivity of the Kendall County officer was both frightening and disillusioning Once again, I respect true law enforcement and realize that in crowds such as Wurstfest that situations arise mak mg this enforcement necessary, but I strongly question the offensive tatties used by this particular arresting officer Patsy Howell . { 3 to V a s a LAMI, PO YOU THINK M.
