A Crete Township woman is out on bond on charges she beat another woman with a bat when plans for a S&M-themed photo shoot went awry, authorities said.

Kimberly J. Williams, 45, of 97 Partridge Lane was charged with one count of aggravated battery for striking the victim more than 20 times with a wooden softball bat, authorities said.

Will County police said a 48-year-old New Lenox woman recently met Williams on a domination/submission website and Williams asked about “taking sexually explicit photographs to send to her ‘master’, who is overseas.”

The women met at a restaurant on the night of Jan. 15 before going back to have drinks and talk at Williams’ trailer, reports said.

After the victim and Williams discussed being a dominatrix, she reportedly became angry and irrational, grabbing the woman’s purse and refusing to let her leave. Around 1:15 a.m. she punched the woman before grabbing a bat by the door and hitting her with it, police said.

The victim ran outside and began screaming for help, which caused neighbors to call police.

The victim was taken by ambulance to St. James Hospital in Chicago Heights where a “golf ball-sized” lump on her forehead was examined.

Her wrist was also broken, reports said.

Police arrested Williams even though she told deputies it was the New Lenox woman who had attacked her. She was released that evening after posting $500 bond.

Records show Williams was arrested for domestic battery in December 2010 after she went after her brother and sister-in-law after an argument, authorities said.
