AVON LAKE — Elaine Freeman, the wife of North Ridgeville Police Chief Mike Freeman, pleaded not guilty to a theft charge stemming from her latest shoplifting arrest, according to Avon Lake Municipal Court records.

Elaine Freeman was arrested Monday at Kohl’s and booked at the Avon Police Department before being release. She  previously was arrested in November when she was caught shoplifting health and beauty products from Target in Avon.

She pleaded no contest in that case and was fined $250 and given a 30-day suspended jail sentence during a March court appearance.

Mike Freeman was reprimanded and ordered to undergo anger management counseling for an outburst at the Avon  Police Station following his wife’s first arrest. Avon Police Chief Richard Bosley has said that there were no problems when Mike Freeman came to the police station earlier this week.

    Ha! Ha! Ha! Freeman is such as a$$hole. This couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. I’m so happy to see the shame and embarrassment this has brought to good, ol’ Mikey!

    mikey dont be embarrassed. your wife has a problem, have her back and get her the help she needs. people who tease her would probably tease a handicap person for not being able to do things on their own. keep your head up mikey. or marry me!!!:)

      What she needs is to spend some time behind bars. Then she should get the help she need so badly.

    • stop ur whining

      momma i usually support ur posts but come on. the help she needs? she has already lucked out once. she is a common criminal. My guess is that she never stopped stealing and has only been caught twice. throw her in jail, maybe that will fix her “problem”

        Like the three time convicted drunk driver you know there are at least a handful of times that they didn’t get caught.

        • stop ur whining

          precisely. she is a crook. toss her in jail for 3 months. watch the humiliation wreck her family. maybe then she will learn. I feel bad for her husband. You know he has to feel every single persons eyes boring into the back of his head. The guy’s life has been ruined. I would divorce her yesterday. custody for their child would be a no brainer. a judge would award him custody and he can forget about her entirely.

  • Ray Venn

    If she’s found guilty, then I think she automatically gets 30 days due to the prior conviction.

    He must be soooo proud of his wife.

  • bigmacky

    besides being a repeat offender – how does this fare for a police chief? its a definite black eye – meh a little pat on the hand and a “there there” is probably all she will get -

    Get her some help already
