A northwest suburban woman is charged with allegedly threatening an officer with what police called a “rigid female pleasure device.”


Carolee Bildsten, 56, is accused of walking out of a Gurnee restaurant without paying and threatening an officer with a sex toy.

Carolee Bildsten, 56, of Gurnee, faces one misdemeanor count each of aggravated assault and theft of labor after her Tuesday evening arrest, Gurnee police Cmdr. Jay Patrick said.

Bildsten apparently walked out on a tab at Joe’s Crab Shack in Gurnee, then went home. When officers found her at her home in the 5300 block of David Court, she allegedly threatened to batter the officer with a sex toy, Patrick said.

The officer was not injured and Bildsten was arrested, Patrick said.

She also faces an ordinance violation for pedestrian under the influence.

Bildsten was released on a personal recognizance bond and issued a court date of Dec. 6 at the Lake County courthouse, Patrick said.

It was apparently the second time Bildsten had walked out on a tab at the restaurant.
