GENEVA – A St. Charles woman who allegedly spit in an officer's face was charged with felony aggravated battery to a police officer and resisting a police officer causing injury, according to police reports and court records.

Claudia A. Vallin, 20, of the 1800 block of Wessel Court, St. Charles, was also charged May 7 with two counts of misdemeanor resisting or obstructing a police officer, prohibited possession of liquor by a minor, illegal transportation of alcohol and a zero tolerance violation for marijuana records show.

Police initially stopped Vallin at 11:18 p.m. in the 0-99 block of West State Street for speeding.

According to reports, Vallin “became extremely argumentative and stated she had consumed one beer prior to being stopped by police.”

When she was asked to provide her name and date of birth, she refused, despite repeated requests, reports stated.

When officers told Vallin she was under arrest, she backed away yelling no and pulled away when an officer touched her arm, reports stated.

Another officer assisted as Vallin continued resisting efforts to handcuff her “and pulled her hands and wrists inside of her sweatshirt to prevent officers from taking control of her,” reports stated.

“Vallin continued trying to pull away from officers and began yelling profanities directed at officers and then turned in my direction and spat in my face with the spittle striking my face and eyeglasses,” the report stated.

“While attempting to handcuff and maintain control of Vallin, she began moving forward and dropped to the ground causing me to fall also. After falling, my left knee struck the sidewalk and I felt pain in my knee,” the report stated.

The officer had a three-inch abrasion and minor bleeding on his left knee as a result of falling, the report stated.

Aggravated battery to a police officer is the most serious charge Vallin faces, a Class 2 felony is punishable by four to seven years in prison and fines up to $25,000, if convicted.

Felony resisting that causes injury to an officer is a Class 4 felony, punishable by one to three years in prison and fines up to $25,000, if convicted.

Vallin is scheduled to appear in court June 18 for a status hearing.
