Beat cops on the North side of Chicago know Shermain Miles well.
They’ve seen her more times than they can count – drunk, half-naked, cursing and once lunging at someone with a dinner fork, according to a report in the Chicago Sun Times.
Last summer police were called by passing motorists reporting a woman foaming at the mouth and lying in the road. Sure enough, the responding officer recognized Shermain Miles.
The newspaper reports that Chicago Police have arrested Miles 396 times since 1978. Of those arrests, 92 were for theft, 65 for disorderly conduct, 59 for prostitution-related offenses, and five for robbery-related offenses.
