A Richmond woman is expected to make a court appearance Wednesday after police say she kicked and threw cooking tools at sheriff's deputies who tried to arrest her.

The situation began shortly after 11 p.m. Saturday when April Hachmeister illegally entered a home in the 8400 block of Alden Road, Wonder Lake, a criminal complaint stated. The 51-year-old is accused of smashing one of the home's glass windows with her hand, according to the complaint.

When police arrived, Hachmeister kicked at one officer and threw a cooking pot and a butter knife at two additional deputies, the complaint stated.

The McHenry County Sheriff's Office could not immediately be reached to provide more details.

Hachmeister, of the 200 block of Cunat Boulevard, is charged with aggravated assault to a peace officer, resisting a peace officer, criminal damage to property and criminal trespass to a building.

The most serious charge, aggravated assault of a peace officer, is typically punishable by as many as three years in prison.

Hachmeister faces similar charges in connection with a police encounter Friday in Huntley, records show.

It is unclear how Hachmeister came in contact with the Huntley police officers she is accused of kicking in the neck and hitting with her purse, according to a separate complaint.

Huntley police were not immediately available to comment.

Hachmeister's bond is set at $50,000. She must post $5,000 to be released from the McHenry County Jail, where she remained Monday evening.
