Arlington Heights police responded to a disorderly conduct call about 10:30 a.m. Friday for a suspicious female standing near the playground of St. James School near the first house south of the playground. A subject described as a female/black with a yellow jacket and red pants was standing watching the playground in front of a house in the 700 block of North Pine Avenue.

The officer called for backup after a short struggle and announced that the subject was in custody.
The female was transported to Arlington Heights Police Department Headquarters just before 10:50 a.m. Friday. The police officer was transported to Northwest Community Hospital with a minor head injury. Police are working on a battery case related to this call.
