Dog is man's best friend. Dog feces, not so much.
Susan M. Miller had the misfortune of stepping into droppings a neighbor's dog deposited earlier this week outside her apartment in far west-central Naperville.
Her reaction proved to be a bit unorthodox.
A written Naperville police report indicated officers were called about 8:18 p.m. Wednesday to Miller's home on the 800 block of Beaumont Drive, in the Brittany Springs apartment complex. The 43-year-old Miller was apparently "fed up with dog feces" being left on the grounds of the complex, the report's narrative read in part.
And so she allegedly "decided to wipe the dog feces which she stepped in on the porch of a dog owner," the narrative continued. Miller then allegedly "threw dog feces at the sliding patio screen" of that apartment, according to the report.
Miller "then located a sign — stating to residents to pick up dog waste — that was posted in the complex, uprooted it and placed it on the dog owner's patio," the narrative stated. She then allegedly strung several small, green plastic bags filled with dog feces "on various places on the patio."
When police arrived at the scene, they found Miller running on the complex grounds, the narrative continued. She allegedly "yelled back that she was running to catch a cat, and not running from the police."
She also "yelled back asking if we were there about the (woman) with dog poop," according to the narrative.
Miller was arrested "after she captured her roommate's cat," the narrative stated. She was charged with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor.
Police Cmdr. Mike Anders said the report contained no further details about the incident or the apparent ill will between Miller and the dog owner.
Records on file in DuPage County Circuit Court in Wheaton indicated Miller has no criminal record. She is free on bail and awaiting arraignment in DuPage County Circuit Court.
