Angered after stepping in dog doo outside her apartment, police say a Naperville woman took matters into her own hands and retaliated by smearing the feces all over a neighbor's patio.
Susan Miller, 43, was charged with disorderly conduct after police were called to her apartment complex in the 800 block of Beaumont Drive around 8:20 p.m. Wednesday.
About a half hour before police arrived, Miller launched a one-woman campaign to bring her 21-year-old neighbor's attention to the volume of dog droppings in the yard, according to police. First, she told police, she smeared the stuff on the neighbor's patio.
"She then threw the dog feces at the sliding patio screen door … located a sign stating that residents should pick up dog waste that was posted in the complex, uprooted it and placed it on the dog owner's patio," the police report states.
Miller then strung green baggies, commonly used for retrieving dog poop, all over the pet owner's patio, the report states.
When police came on the scene, they found Miller sprinting through the complex shortly after 8 p.m. She yelled to officers that she was chasing a cat, not running from authority, according to the report.
She asked the officers if they were there about the lady with the dog poop, according to the report, but didn't use the word "lady."
Miller indeed was chasing a cat, her roommate's. After capturing the wayward feline, Miller was arrested. Her bail was set at $75.
