Chicago’s top cop found lying in car; requests investigation
CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson asked the city’s police department to conduct an internal investigation on himself Thursday after he was found lying down in a car.
A passerby found Johnson early Thursday in a car parked near a stop sign and called 911. Police department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said in a statement that Johnson indicated he parked his car after feeling lightheaded. Officers checked on Johnson’s well-being and didn’t observe any signs of impairment.
Johnson drove himself to his home nearby.
“There were no charges of intoxication, no information of intoxication as far as I know,” Guglielmi said.
