Man Sets Up Ex's Arrest, and Gets Busted, Too: Cops

Robert Jurica, who tackled his former girlfriend so police could arrest her on a warrant, is charged with aggravated battery for his efforts, Joliet police say.

A Shorewood man who apparently wanted to get back at a former girlfriend by having Joliet police arrest her on an outstanding warrant had his plan backfire Saturday morning, police said.

Robert M. Jurica, 52, was waiting for Brandi L. Musiol, 31, to exit a business at 611 W. Jefferson St. at about 9 a.m., Joliet Police Capt. Tab Jensen said. When she did, he tackled her, put her into a bear hug and then called police, Jensen said.

Witnesses observed the attack, and officers who arrived on the scene examined Musiol's injuries and decided to charge Jurica with felony aggravated domestic battery, he said.

Musiol was arrested on the warrant, which was for failure to appear at a court hearing for a June 2012 arrest in which she was charged with felony possession of a stolen firearm, jail records show.

Jurica, of 24424 W. Pellinore, was released on $5,000 bond.

Musiol, of 13705 Kitty Hawk, Plainfield, is being held in the Will County jail and no bond has been set. She had previously been released on $5,000 bail in connection with the firearm charge; her next court hearing is Feb. 11.

Why is it everyone judges people the way they look? Do you have children? Would you like someone to say that just because there skin is not perfect? God people grow up!!!
John Roberts January 23, 2013 at 04:50 PM
No if my kid looked like that with all of the sores on her face I would take it as a warning and I would watch her and outright ask her...ever hear of "looking for signs" ..how about go look at the faces of meth...then come back and reply,go look at the damage that heron is doing...both look just like this lady..hey bad skin or what ever..I never said she is doing drugs but she don't look like she wasn't using that's for sure...yes I have children..and looking for signs of dugs use if your any kind of parent should come natural...if you don't knowhow your kids act or look then your not doing your job...

They both look like losers... not to mention the fact that he is old enough to be HER FATHER.
Arrianna January 23, 2013 at 09:33 PM
Wow....I have a condition that causes skin ulcers that sometimes appear on my face. Nice to know that ignorant people are probably calling me a meth addict behind my back when I have never touched a drug in my life. :(

John Roberts January 24, 2013 at 02:21 PM
It is ignorant to look at this chick and ignore the signs...yeah she might not be but can bet she was asked by the cops if she was...They know what to look for...And yes if you look like this chick you can bet some people are saying something..at least if they have seen meth heads and heroine junkies faces and marks before..weather they say something or not is up to them..but of you get arrested and your face is broke out like this I bet you get asked by e cops if you are an addict...it is the ignorance of at least not questioning the looks is what gives most kids chances to do the drugs..how the hell can you tell you obviously do not look for signs of drug use,chapped face with sores I bet you'd run out and get some zit medication while your kid shoots up while your at the store...I know what Methand heroin faces look like and this chicks face looks just like them...do I know the difference no but at least I don't just try to pass it off and ignore it..I look observe,and question..that's how you get educated...could be skin users..but could be meth and heroin too...
