    A woman who claims she was attacked by a security guard at the Oak Lawn Hooters restaurant in January filed a lawsuit Wednesday against the restaurant chain, an Oak Lawn police officer and the village.

    The lawsuit was filed less than two weeks after the woman was sentenced to 200 days in Cook County Jail for battery for spitting on the off-duty officer in the same incident, according to Oak Law More.. More..n police.

    Livier Torres claims that Joseph Schmidt, a police officer working as a Hooters security guard, attacked her Jan. 10 inside the restaurant, 9159 Cicero Ave., according to a suit filed in Cook County Circuit Court.

    The lawsuit claims Torres asked a waitress to see a manager about the charges but that Schmidt approached her instead and "took up an intimidating position."

    The manager arrived and discussed the disputed bill and took Torres' credit card while she waited in the cashier area, according to the lawsuit.

    While Torres waited, Schmidt put her in a chokehold, grabbed her by the hair, threw her to the floor and continued to kick and stomp her, the lawsuit said.

    Torres claims she did not pose a threat or danger to anyone in the establishment.

    Torres was arrested for battery after the incident for spitting in Schmidt's face and was convicted Aug. 20 and sentenced Nov. 4, according to a news release issued Thursday by police.

    It said Oak Lawn officials had not seen a copy of the lawsuit but that the village was "prepared to vigorously defend itself." The release said the Oak Lawn Police Department will not comment further.

    The lawsuit claims, among other things, that Hooters failed to provide adequate security, used excessive force and failed to control its employees

    The cop definitely should not have roughed her up like that, BUT, she is no angel, herself.

    Hooters also points out Torres’ numerous prior convictions. Among them, court records show several DUI’s, a previous battery, an arrest for shoplifting and false personation of a public employee.

    I don't see any kicking or stomping. She was talking shit, the cop got in her face and she spit on him. She was being abusive, combative and resisting after the assault (yes spitting technically is assault) and the officer did what was necessary to bring her under control and effect an arrest. Even if he was moonlighting a cop's arrest powers are 24/7 (real cops, other jerkoffs with guns like bridge and tunnel or court officers get demoted/fired for trying to act like a cop off duty) and once she escalated the situation by spitting on him he had the right to lock her up.

    In a backhanded sort of way he actually did her a favor. Sure he could've been a bigger man and walked away but you have to understand the ghetto mentality. People like that live for confrontation. They're miserable people who demand the highest quality service for the least amount of money. I have no doubt the waitress padded the bill because the chick was a pain in the ass and probably wasn't going to tip. People like that also love shitting on civil servants. Lot of anger without any knowledge of how things work in the real world or any facts to back it up...just loud and wrong ignorant mothafuckas. If she walked out of there that bitch would tell anyone who would listen about how she punked the fat white cop. Then the next time she was confronted by law enforcement she would think it's alright to act even bolder and could possibly wind up dead. Some folks need a good healthy beating from time to time. Bottom line, if it was a man this would be a non-story.
