Teen Crashes Into 2 Cops, Points Gun — But They’re Getting Charged
Two Chicago police officers are facing felony charges of aggravated battery and official misconduct after allegedly using excessive force during the arrest of a teen driver who had rammed their cruiser with a stolen car. The officers claim that the suspect aimed a gun at them but did not report this until later, after the pistol was found in the vehicle's glove box. Charges against the teen were dropped. Some are conflicted about the charges being brought against the officers, who are decorated combat veterans, while the suspect faces no repercussions. The incident highlights the ongoing debate around police use of force and accountability.
