A business dispute turned into charges of battery when a woman allegedly committed a battery against her business partner as she attempted to leave the premises.
Police officers were called on November 7th, to 9205 S. Keating, which is the address of Crescent Day Spa.
Diminique Stokes told the officer that she was a partner in a spa business and claimed her former partner and the partner’s boyfriend had committed battery and then ran over her legs with their UHaul truck.
Stokes provided a description of the truck and told officers that her business partner, identified as Rina Singleton, takes Southwest Highway home to Tinley Park.
Stokes told the officer that she saw Singleton and her boyfriend, Jacari Hardy, loading up a UHaul truck with items she believed were from the Crescent Day Spa. Stokes said she stepped in front of the driver’s door to prevent Singleton from leaving but Singleton reached around her and opened the door.
According to Stokes, Singleton entered the vehicle and began kicking Stokes in the chest to get her away from the truck. According to Stokes, Hardy then came up behind her and threw her to the ground. Stokes claimed that Singleton then drove the truck over her legs.
An officer located and stopped the truck on Southwest Highway. Hardy and Singleton told the officer that Stokes is a “former business partner”. Hardy and Singleton claimed that Stokes attacked Singleton and Hardy broke the fight up. Both denied running the vehicle over her legs. Hardy and Singleton claimed that Stokes tried jumping on the truck as it left and she fell to the ground.
Hardy, a 27 year old black man, with a Lansing address, was charged with battery. Singleton, a 31 year old black female, from Tinley Park, was also charged with battery.
