Beaver Dam Woman Charged With Resisting, Kicking Police

(Beaver Dam) A Beaver Dam woman accused of resisting police while she was being arrested made her initial appearance in court Monday. Theresa Lillie is facing a felony count of Battery to Law Enforcement and a misdemeanor charge of Obstruction. During the early morning hours on Saturday (March 14th), Lillie was allegedly pulled over for speeding on North University Avenue. According to the criminal complaint, the officer observed an odor of intoxicants coming from the vehicle. A passenger in the car took blame and was taken into custody for bail jumping. Lillie underwent field sobriety tests and reportedly blew a point-one-six-eight (.168) during a preliminary breath test. Lillie allegedly resisted police as they attempted to arrest and kicked a nearby officer, requiring law enforcement to use leg restraints. She also reportedly went limp as they attempted to secure her in a squad car. If convicted, the 31-year-old faces over six years in prison. A signature bond was set at $1,000 and a judge will decide next month if there is enough evidence to order a trial.
