In the end, it was Sabrina Touchstone who was left with egg on her face.
While apparently not a hard-boiled criminal, the 41-year-old Aurora resident will have to appear in court to answer a charge of disorderly conduct, after she allegedly extracted a peculiar form of retribution in Naperville using three dozen raw eggs.
Written Naperville police reports indicated Touchstone was arrested about 3:45 p.m. Thursday following the bizarre altercation in the parking lot of the Walmart store at 776 S. Route 59, opposite the Westfield Fox Valley shopping center in Aurora.
Sgt. Steve Schindlbeck said Touchstone’s arrest was “the result of a driving altercation” over whether she or another motorist had the right of way in one of the parking lot’s aisles.
Matters quickly “came to a head” when Touchstone allegedly “threw two, 18-count containers of eggs” at two women ages 53 and 20 and the vehicle in which they were traveling, Schindlbeck said.
Several of the eggs struck and shattered against the vehicle, and at least one hit one of the women, Schindlbeck said. She was not physically hurt.
Schindlbeck said he did not know whether the woman and the woman she was with were related to one another. He also did not know whether Touchstone had just purchased the eggs at Walmart or had bought them somewhere else.
An examination of court documents revealed Touchstone has received at least 12 traffic tickets in DuPage, Kane and Will counties, but has no criminal record.
Police ticketed Touchstone on a charge of disorderly conduct/offensive act. She is free on bond, and her preliminary appearance date in DuPage County Circuit Court in Wheaton is pending.
