Commander Glenn Evans (above) was relieved of his post with the Chicago PD on accusations that he jammed the barrel of his gun in a suspect's mouth. The man, Rickey Williams (below), was arrested in the city's South Side.
A top cop in Chicago has been stripped of his badge and gun under accusations that he jammed his gun in a suspect's mouth during an interrogation.
Commander Glenn Evans, who until Wednesday headed the Harrison District in the city's West Side, is charged with official misconduct and aggravated battery, both felonies. He's expected in court on Thursday.
The complaint says Evans threatened to kill Rickey Williams, 24, after a chase in Chicago's infamous South Side back in January 2013, WBEZ reported.
Evans, then a commander in the Grand Crossing district, chased the man with his officers after they spotted him with a gun.
The cops eventually restrained Williams in a vacant home but never found the gun, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
