$3K Fine for Assault with a Deadly Weapon

If anybody besides an off-duty Chicago Cop had done this, its legality wouldn't still be under investigation.Jury awards $3K to man shot at by Chicago cop -

The cop in question was pissed that his ex-girlfriend was actually his ex-girlfriend and that she would dare to date someone else.

The night ended when the cop shot the door of the new-boyfriend's car. (After throwing a soda at the woman.)

But instead of being charged with battery for the soda, and something for discharging his service weapon, the new-boyfriend is arrested and charged with 2 misdemeanors. Those charges were later dropped of course.

The cop? He is still on the job. The "Independent Police Review Authority" is still investigating. The incident in question happened in 2007, and they haven't figured it out yet.

Thugs with badges.
