A Naperville woman was arrested in Plainfield for violating the city’s disorderly conduct ordinance after being accused of “threatening to take lives” in church last Sunday according to a report by the Herald-News.

The woman, Joletta Jordan, 54, was given a warning not to trespass at the church. She was released from custody on her own recognizance. 

Disturbance at the Plainfield church

According to the Herald-News report, officers responded to a reported disturbance at the Redeemed Christian Church of God, 13717 US-30, Plainfield on Sunday at around 9:16 a.m.

On their way there, officers were told by dispatch that the suspect was inside the church and “threatening bodily harm to others and causing a disturbance,” Commander of Police at the Plainfield Police Department Anthony Novak told the Herald-News.

When officers arrived, a church representative told them the suspect, later identified as Jordan, “aggressively” entered the church office area and said she was “ready to go to jail,” Novak told the Herald-News.

She was allegedly threatening to take lives, and at one point reached inside her purse. The church representative was fearful that Jordan may have been concealing a weapon, but police found that she had none on her.

The arrest and charges

After being arrested, Jordan was booked at the Plainfield Police Department. She was charged with a violation of Plainfield’s disorderly conduct ordinance.
