An Uptown woman who allegedly verbally threatened a Cook County judge was ordered held in lieu of $100,000 bail Saturday.

Cook County prosecutors say Nicole Patrick allegedly stood in the driveway alley of a female judge on June 4 and said, “You better watch it. Now I know where you live, you f****** judge.”

The judge was in fear of her safety, according to a police report.

Patrick, 42, of the 1000 block of West Lawrence Avenue, was charged with two counts of threatening a public official.

Patrick has a 1993 battery and theft conviction out of California, authorities said.

An assistant public defender told Judge Israel Desierto that Patrick is disabled.
