CHICAGO, Sept. 26 (UPI) -- A Chicago prosecutor has been charged in a fracas at an adult store that included biting an employee on the leg.

Sarah Naughton, 31, has been suspended as an assistant state's attorney in Cook County, the Chicago Tribune reported. She faces two misdemeanor charges, battery and criminal trespass, police said.

Employees at Taboo Tabou said Naughton and Bradley Gould, 31, both appeared to be drunk when they came to the store on Saturday, the newspaper said. Mark Thomas, who owns the store, said the manager knew she would have trouble with the couple.

"They managed to get 10 or 12 feet into the store and she could tell they had diminished capacity,'' Thomas said. "We've been around since 1986, we've gone through skin heads, drug dealers, drunken Cubs fans, we've been through it all."

Thomas said Naughton and Gould left the store but kept rapping on the windows and making obscene gestures to passers-by. He described them as acting "like jackasses."

"Chaos ensued" when the manager got help from an employee at Thomas's cigar store next door, he said, with Naughton allegedly biting one of the employees. Gould, who allegedly shoved someone and made threats, also faces charges.
