A Joliet woman was arrested Saturday after she repeatedly returned to a tavern and stared menacingly at the bartender who had taken out an order of protection against her, according to Joliet police. 

Cmdr. Al. Roechner said Rosaura Diaz, 51, of 417 Elwood, had been ordered by a judge to stay away from the 27-year-old female bartender after Diaz allegedly attacked the woman in September and was arrested on a battery charge.

Diaz violated that order Saturday night when she went to Puerto Escondido, 509 N. Chicago St., sat at the bar and stared at the bartender while she was working, he said.

The bartender threatened to call the police, prompting Diaz to leave, Roechner said. When she returned a second time, the same scene took place and Diaz left again, he said. However, the bartender did call police, who were there when Diaz returned a third time, he said.

When Diaz was escorted away by officers, she reportedly yelled at the bartender, "You son of a b----, you are going to pay for this," Roechner said.

Diaz was charged with aggravated stalking and violating an order of protection. She was released from Will County jail on $10,000 bond.

Sure Herc- because concealed carry always works out well when lunatics with hair-triggers are packin'- just ask that little 3 year old girl without a daddy down in FL that was gunned down by that ex-cop.

In this case, C&C would work quite well.

That place is a real hole in the wall. Won't be the last time you read about it.

Hey Seer ask the hundreds of families that used a gun to save their families how well they think the situation would of worked out for them without a gun. lol I remember seeing her picture on the patch for the arrest last time. lmao..

how does that relate to a young father getting shot over trivial s**t like texting in a theater by some guy who is obviously not psychologically fit to carry a gun? most people in this country do not have the mental capacity to vote let alone carry loaded weapons.

Seer, you are one of those fools who think a majority of people are idiots. People like you shouldn't be allowed to own a gun. Liberals always whining that guns kill people. So do cars. Let's ban those too huh? In your opinion, most people are to dumb to own a gun, so they must be to dumb to drive too. Give that stupid crap up. If the government ever tries to take everyone's guns away there will be one hell of a revolution. I don't think they want that. BTW, you are also probably the type that if someone was shooting up a bldg that you were in, you'd be crying and yelling for the help of someone with a gun or dumb enough to think you could talk them out of shooting anyone else.
