An officer was dispatched to a residence following reports of a person refusing to leave. The homeowner told the reporting officer that Hodges had been allowed to stay at the residence for three days. When the homeowner asked Hodges to leave, she refused, according to police reports.
Police spoke to Hodges, but reports say that she refused to move or speak. The officer escorted her from the residence to the front porch. When he told Hodges she had to leave the porch, she refused.
The officer placed Hodges under arrest. At the Mokena Police Department, she refused to sign a recognizance bond. She was released on the bond she refused to sign pending a March 11 court date.
