Chicago police commander accused of sticking gun in suspect’s mouth (VIDEO)

Chicago police commander Glenn Evans has been charged with aggravated battery and official misconduct this week. The incident dates back to January 2013, when Evans arrested Rickey J. Williams, 24, after he was allegedly spotted with a gun in public. Since police failed to find a gun, the charges against Williams were eventually dropped.

Shortly after the arrest, Williams made an official complaint about the ordeal claiming Evans used his police issued firearm and placed it in his mouth. The complaint was followed up on by the Independent Police Review Authority and Williams DNA was found on Evans firearm.

Evans was never relieved of duty until official charges were announced, at which point Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy released the following statement:

The alleged actions, if true, are unacceptable to the both the residents we serve and to the men and women of this department. As soon as we were made aware of the charges Commander Evans was relieved of his police powers, pending the outcome of this matter. Like any private citizen, the commander is innocent until proven guilty and we need to allow this case to proceed like any other. We will cooperate fully with prosecutors.

Evans appears in bond court Thursday regarding the charges, while Williams resides in jail for an unrelated incident.
