Woman busted after bragging about nightclub fight on Facebook

Updated: September 24, 2012 6:25AM

Ruth Ramirez smashed a glass into the face of another woman at a Near North Side nightclub — and then bragged about it on Facebook, police say.

A friend of the victim saw the boasts and told the victim, who identified Ramirez from her Facebook photo, prosecutors said. Ramirez was arrested Tuesday in the April 22 incident at the Leg Room, 7 W. Division. Judge Adam Bourgeois Jr. ordered the mother of one child held in lieu of $100,000 bail Wednesday on a charge of aggravated battery causing bodily harm.

The victim, 29, and a friend were dancing at the club when Ramirez approached them, Assistant State’s Attorney Erin Antonietti said Wednesday. Words were exchanged. Then Ramirez raised her hands toward the victim, but the woman slapped them away, Antonietti said.

Ramirez, of the 3700 block of West Division, came at the victim again and smashed a glass in her face, Antonietti said. The victim’s friend separated them and Ramirez left, Antonietti said. The victim received 32 stitches in her face. After a friend told the victim that Ramirez was discussing the incident on Facebook, the victim contacted police, Antonietti said.

Ramirez, nicknamed “Tuty,” has “Boss” tattooed on her right arm and “Flossy” on her left wrist, according to a police report.
