CHICAGO (CBS) — A Chicago police commander accused of sticking the barrel of his service weapon in a suspect’s throat, pressing a stun gun against the man’s groin last year, and threatening to kill him was released without having to post bail Thursday.
Police Cmdr. Glenn Evans, 52, was stripped of his police powers Wednesday after Cook County prosecutors charged him with aggravated battery and official misconduct.
CBS 2’s Chris Martinez reports Evans, once considered one of Police Supt. Garry McCarthy’s go-to guys, appeared in bond court Thursday afternoon, where prosecutors said he shoved the barrel of his service weapon in a suspect’s mouth, and pressed a stun gun against the man’s groin during an arrest in early 2013.
