WHEELING, Ill., June 5 (UPI) -- An Illinois woman's desire for an alcoholic beverage got her tossed in the clink.

Lidia Zuradzka has been accused of breaking into a stranger's home in Wheeling and demanding a beer on Monday.

According to Cook County Assistant State's Attorney David Shin, Zuradzka entered the house through an unlocked door while the female homeowner was upstairs. The homeowner walked into her living room and allegedly saw Zuradzka holding a beer that had been left out on a table.

When asked what she was doing, Zuradzka responded "I want beer," the Daily Herald reported. The homeowner screamed and Zuradzka left the residence.

The 52-year-old has been charged with residential burglary charges and was held on a $100,000 bond on Wednesday.

Zuradzka has previous convictions for residential burglary and criminal trespass to a residence.
