BUFFALO GROVE — Admitting that she defied an order of protection, former Buffalo Grove trustee Lisa Stone was arrested Friday by the Mundelein Police Department.
Stone’s step-mother, Barbara Shuman, filed an emergency order of protection on Feb. 7 against Stone. Shuman also included her husband and Stone’s father, Hurd Shuman, in the court petition.
Stone appeared in Lake County court in February for motions regarding the order or protection — yet she acknowledged calling her father anyway.
“He is my father, he is my blood,” Stone said Saturday. “Over my dead body will somebody keep me from my father.”
The Shumans live in Mundelein. In Shuman’s request for protection, she wrote that she feared Stone’s phone calls.
“For the past two weeks Lisa has called every other day, harassing me and threatening me,” Shuman wrote.
“She is verbally abusive and threatens to come to the house.”
The order is currently before Lake County Judge George Strickland, and is scheduled for a hearing on March 21.
Stone said she has no plans to observe the warning.
“Judge Strickland is not going to decide if I can ever speak to my father again,” Stone said.
Stone said the entire case was a misunderstanding perpetuated by her step-mother.
“She’s made everyone think I’m crazy,” Stone said. “I am sound.”
In her petition, Shuman expressed a different view of Stone.
“I fear that her behavior is escalating and I am afraid/terrified that she will show up at my house and hurt me and/or my husband,” Shuman wrote.
