A Chicago woman who police said pulled a fire alarm at the Will County jail after yelling about wanting to visit her boyfriend has been ordered by a judge to stay away from the facility.
On Tuesday, Judge Victoria Breslan set a $1,000 bond for Titeana Washington, 22, of the 5200 block of North Ludlam Avenue after she was charged with felony disorderly conduct in connection with the incident.
Breslan also signed an order that said Washington shall have no contact with the jail.
Washington has been out of jail since Monday after posting bond.
About 6:45 p.m. Monday, sheriff’s deputies were called to the front entrance of the jail at 95 S. Chicago St. in Joliet, where they met with jail staff and Washington, sheriff’s spokeswoman Kathy Hoffmeyer said.
“Washington was very upset and yelling about wanting to visit her boyfriend in the jail,” Hoffmeyer said.
Before deputies were called to the scene, jail staff told Washington that there is a process for visiting inmates and she could not make a visit at that time. Hoffmeyer said Washington subsequently pulled a fire alarm, setting the alarm off throughout the entire facility.
“She also ripped off some signs in the entryway and flipped over a trash can,” Hoffmeyer said.
Washington was previously in jail several days before the incident when she was arrested on charges of battery and criminal trespass to property.
Washington was accused of entering a woman’s residence in the 300 block of North Bluff Street on March 25 after she allegedly was told not to do so.
