    Man reportedly 'body slammed' cop


    September 7, 2009
    By BRIAN STANLEY [email protected]

    JOLIET -- A man faces attempted murder charges after reportedly "picking up and body slamming" a police officer separating him and his girlfriend during a fight Saturday night.

    Chief Fred Hayes said the 30-year-old woman, who has been on the department for two and a half years, suffered "very severe head injuries" when Mario C. Bolden, 22, struck her onto the concrete curb.

    The injured officer was the first of several to respond at 9:47 p.m. for a "heated argument" between the couple at Bicentennial Park, 201 W. Jefferson St. Witnesses reported she got between Bolden and his girlfriend while they were at the vehicle turnaround on the south side of the theater near the Des Plaines River.

    "The victim told the officer (Bolden) had chased her around the park and choked her and the officer said he'd be placed under arrest for domestic battery," Hayes said. "He became enraged and was able to surprise the officer, grabbing her and body slamming her to the ground, causing her head to hit the curb." Hayes said two people in addition to Bolden's girlfriend witnessed the incident.

    Bolden reportedly fled on foot from the park, as other police arrived to find the officer unconscious. Joliet firefighters transported her to Provena Saint Joseph Medical Center where she was placed in intensive care.

    "Bolden was identified by the (eyewitnesses to the incident) and three other people in the area," Hayes said. Officers reportedly found him a short time later in his apartment at 316 N. Bluff St., about two blocks from the park and arrested him.

    Bolden was later booked into the county jail where records indicate he has a Chicago mailing address. He has been charged with attempted murder, aggravated battery to a police officer, two counts of aggravated battery and obstructing a police officer.

    The injured officer, who is also a veteran of another local department, has since regained and lost consciousness several times at the hospital.

    "I spoke with her (early Sunday), but the most recent reports say her condition has grown a little worse. She¹s not out of the woods yet," Hayes said Sunday afternoon.

    Hayes did not identify the officer, but said her conduct reports are "top-notch." "She put herself right between the offender and the victim and tragically, was hurt for her bravery," he said.




    Keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

      Prayers for a speedy and full recovery for the Joliet P/O.

      The only saving grace is that the offender is in Will Co. where he may get penitentiary time.

              perhaps chitown heard it on his scanner, wonder why he has not asked our opinion on the situation or how CPD may have handled it.

                Prayers for a full and speedy recovery. Let this be another real life example of IF at all possible, don't go into situations like this without your backup.

                    Seems to me that the scumbag is wearing a security shirt. See the epaulets on the top shoulders and the creases coming down the front? So this must be a person who protects someone's property. Guess they don't do background checks that well!

                      Actually thats just in style now. I dont know what it is, but people seem to think uniform style shirts are good fashion now. Ive delt with ALOT of people working security at clubs who wear them. NO patches or anything, just the shirt style.


                      Prayers go out to this officer and her family.

                        Very True M.C.S.D,

                        We see this all the time in the West Side Ghetto....all these ****ing mules want to wear chevrons and epaulets like they understand what they represent or that they actually achieved them. It repulses me to see these mutts wear something universally attributed to the military and various branches of law enforcement.

                        Spooky

                          Yeah, she approached Bolden after he was identified as the suspect to arrest him. Then again, the Herald News is not the most accurate source of info.

                            Too bad I wasn't the arresting officer, there would have been a lot more blood on his face
