    Report sheds new light on Chicago police chief's firing

    Reports shed new light on Chicago police chief’s firing

    CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago’s fired police chief was having drinks with a woman for hours the mid-October night officers found him sleeping behind the wheel of his SUV, according to two newspapers citing unidentified sources.

    Mayor Lori Lightfoot fired Superintendent Eddie Johnson on Monday for “ethical lapses,” just weeks before he was set to retire. She said an inspector general’s report, which hasn’t been released to the public, revealed he misled her and the public about the circumstances of that evening and showed “flawed decision-making.” She declined specifics, citing an ongoing investigation, adding that her decision not to share details was out of deference to his family.

    Sources: Eddie Johnson Was Drinking With Woman Who Was Not His Wife – CBS Chicago

    Sources: Former Police Supt. Johnson Was Drinking With Woman Who Was Not His Wife Before Being Found Slumped Over In SUV


    CHICAGO (CBS) — Former Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson had been out drinking with a woman who was not his wife hours before he was found slumped over the steering wheel in October, sources told CBS 2.

    Mayor Lori Lightfoot fired Johnson on Monday, saying he had lied both to her and to the public about the incident – which he initially attributed to a mix-up involving his blood pressure medication.

    A 30-year veteran of the police force & its superintendent got himself into this situation? Sad.

    So we're basically confirming what we already know: He was drunk off his ass while people were dying.

    A big orchid to Chicago's new mayor.

    She has appointed the former chief of Los Angeles police as the new Chicago chief.

    No doubt some activists are livid for a certain reason.

    The mayor of Chicago is to be commended for her political courage.
