On 3/8/16 at approximately 0305 hours I, Officer D. Pack responded to a call of a suspicious person in the rear of [CNP REDACTION]. I subsequently engaged [CNP REDACTION] in the back yard of [CNP REDACTION] as part of an ongoing investigation of said suspicious person call. I encountered [CNP REDACTION], who was concealing himself under the deck area of the above address, who I believed to be a subject who fled from an earlier traffic stop in which a loaded gun was recovered from a stolen vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] was given verbal commands to crawl out from under the deck and [CNP REDACTION] initially followed my instructions. After being physically removed from under the deck by Ofc. Virani, [CNP REDACTION] was ordered to place his hands behind his back which he refused to do. [CNP REDACTION] tensed his arms and thrashed around on the ground kicking his feet in the air. [CNP REDACTION] was advised to stop resisting multiple times, but continued to stiffen up and resist attempts by Ofc. Virani and Ofc. Reza to place him in handcuffs. At this point, believing the subject could be armed, and due to his actively resisting arrest, I placed my Taser against his left buttocks. I informed [CNP REDACTION] if he continued to resist arrest he would be tased. [CNP REDACTION] then slapped the Taser away from his body and attempted to roll over with his arms clenched to his side. I deployed my Taser for one five second burst using a drive-stun technique to the [CNP REDACTION]'s left buttocks. [CNP REDACTION] immediately ceased his attempts to resist arrest and was handcuffed without further incident.

On 8/4/16 at approximately 0007 hrs Ofc Pack *234 and I, Ofc Thomas *204, were in the area of Lyons and McDaniel and observed a group in Beck Park after hours. We conducted a street stop on the group and gave verbal commands to stop, where [CNP REDACTION] fled northbound through the park with me chasing. I gave [CNP REDACTION] several verbal commands to stop, with negative results. I observed [CNP REDACTION] hold the front of his waistband, with both hands, shake it back and forth, and then bend over at the waist. I drew my gun and again ordered him to stop, with negative results. As we were approaching Emerson I observed [CNP REDACTION] not to have anything in his hands and holstered my gun. [CNP REDACTION] ran northbound into Butler Park and in the rear of [CNP REDACTION], where he jumped the chain linked fence. [CNP REDACTION] fell onto his stomach, with his hands underneath him. I was going to attempt to jump the fence when [CNP REDACTION] stood up and squared up to me. I again ordered [CNP REDACTION] to stop, drew my taser, and observed him running to the front of the residence. I deployed my taser to affect the arrest, where the prongs successfully engaged. [CNP REDACTION] fell, where I stated to him not to move. Ofc. Velez *151 responded and successfully handcuffed [CNP REDACTION] .16-2247704/08/201618/09/2021Thomas204/16745th WardTaser deploymentGreater Grand Crossing, Chicago18MB3/0 Invasion of Privacy, 1/0 Assault, 1/0 Larceny, 1/0 ObstructingOn-ViewDarkNoneN/ARedactedN/ADijon N CaffieJumping a fence and taser ejectionRedacted2603Thomas; D.Pack; VelezNoStreet Stop - led to foot chase
[CNP REDACTION] was advised that she was under arrest for a domestic battery investigation, & obstructing justice. [CNP REDACTION] was advised that she was under arrest numerous times by myself. She was holding a 2 month old child and refused to allow the father to take possession of the juvenile. I was able to secure the right arm of [CNP REDACTION] and control her arm with soft open hand techniques. At this point the father, [EPD REDACTION], was able to safely take possession of the juvenile. [CNP REDACTION] stated I am not going to jail and began to flail her free left arm and she took a wide stance and refused to obey loud clear verbal lawful commands that she was under arrest. After a brief struggle Officers were unable to gain control of [CNP REDACTION]. I attempted to a single leg take down on [CNP REDACTION], but was unsuccessful. Officer Pack deployed his Taser for one five second burst and officers were able to place [CNP REDACTION] into handcuffs.16-2461825/08/201602/10/2021Bush108th WardOpen hand techniques8th Ward24FBDomestic battery, resisting arrest, obstructing arrest, & child endangermentRadio AssignmentArtificially litSergeant J.

On 8/24/16 at approximately 0300 hours I, Ofc. D. Pack #234 was assigned to assist other units at [CNP REDACTION] #3 during a domestic battery call. While on scene the offender, [CNP REDACTION] refused to comply with lawful commands given by other uniformed Police Officers on scene. [CNP REDACTION] was informed she was under arrest for domestic battery and obstructing a peace officer in the performance of his official duties. Other officers on scene, including Sgt. Bush, Commander Sacluti, Ofc. J. Dietrich, and Ofc. K. Popp attempted to place [CNP REDACTION] under arrest. [CNP REDACTION] was given verbal commands to place her hands behind her back. [CNP REDACTION] refused to comply and other officers on scene attempted to affect the arrest using non-impact control techniques. [CNP REDACTION] resisted the Officers attempts to handcuff her by tensing her arms and legs and taking a wide aggressive stance, preventing the officers from placing her arms behind her back. As other officers attempted to take [CNP REDACTION] to the ground she continued to resist their efforts by shuffling her feet and tensing her leg muscles while stating "you ain't taking me to jail". [CNP REDACTION] was informed if she continued to resist she was going to be tased. As other officers struggled to control [CNP REDACTION]'s arms and safely place her in handcuffs, she began to shuffle towards the dresser in the room. Believing other officers and [CNP REDACTION] might suffer injuries due to the small size of the room, I deployed my Taser for one five second burst using a drive-stun technique to [CNP REDACTION] lower right back area. [CNP REDACTION] immediately ceased her attempts to resist arrest and was handcuffed without further incident.

In summary, on 10-7-16 I monitored EPD radio traffic of a foot pursuit involving Detective Klopack and Officer Carrigan. I responded to the scene and assisted in setting up a perimeter, positioned at Dodge and Foster. I further monitored radio traffic that two wanted subjects were coming westbound on Foster towards Dodge. I observed two subjects coming towards me and immediately gave loud commands for the subjects to get on the ground. They did not immedately comply with my commands so I continued to give them as they walked away from me across Foster. Reluctantly, they slowed and slowly lay down on the ground. I immediately approached the closer of the two subjects, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], placed my knee on the large backpack that was worn on his back, and handcuffed both his wrists.16-2942808/10/201620/12/2021Levy95th WardnoneFuller Park, Chicago16MRedactedPossession of stolen property, disobedience to PoliceRadioDark with artificial street lightingDNADNARedactedDNATris MillsUnknownDNA503Levy; Klopack; CarriganNoFoot Pursuit - UoF was while suspects were laying down - placing weight of knee onto backpack arrestee was wearing while handcuffing
On 11/15/16 at approximately 0333 hours Officer Kozlowski *196 and I, Officer Thomas *204 responded to [CNP REDACTION], [EPD REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] who reported a resident, [EPD REDACTION] was in the bathroom with a knife attempting to cut herself. Upon arrival we met with [EPD REDACTION] in the garden apartments, who lead us to [EPD REDACTION] was sitting in a bathtub with a knife in her hand. I observed [EPD REDACTION] grabbing at her ankle which was bleeding from a laceration. I unholstered my taser prior to engaging [EPD REDACTION] took cover behind a corner of the bathroom, and gave multiple commands to drop the knife. Each time [EPD REDACTION] refused to drop the knife. I explained to [EPD REDACTION] that if she refused any more than I would be forced to tase her. [EPD REDACTION] understood, stated she did not want to be tased, and further refused to drop the knife. As multiple officers arrived on the scene, [EPD REDACTION] was tased with a single 5 second burst. While being tased Officer Kozolowski grabbed the knife, which was still in her hand, and Officer Pack handcuffed [EPD REDACTION] EFD responded to the scene and transported [EPD REDACTION] NFI.16-3087815/11/201602/10/2021Thomas2043rd WardTaser Deployment3rd Ward18FWNONERadio assignment for armed (knife) subject threatening to harm selfinterior lightedDNADNARedactedDNAredactedSelf-inflicted superficial knife wound to upper chest and right ankle.

On 1/19/17 at approximately 0120 hours I, Ofc. D. Pack #234 responded to the north bound Davis street EL Platform for a call of a man with a knife. Dispatch gave a description of a male white wearing blue jeans and a long green jacket waving a large knife at passengers waiting to get onto the train. Upon arrival I observed the subject, later identified [CNP REDACTION] was standing on the platform with his back turned towards me with his body concealed by the long green jacket. [CNP REDACTION] was given verbal commands to show me his hands and get on the ground. [CNP REDACTION] ignored my commands and began bending over reaching towards the black backpack that was at his feet. I kicked the back pack away from him and performed an emergency takedown, guiding him to the ground face down, while giving him verbal commands to put his hands behind his back, which he refused to do. [CNP REDACTION] tensed his arms underneath his body and ignored several more verbal commands to stop resisting and place his hands behind his back. At this point, believing the subject to be armed with a knife, and due to him actively resisting arrest, I placed my Taser against his back and informed [CNP REDACTION] if he continued to resist arrest he would be tased. [CNP REDACTION] continued to clench his arms under his body preventing assisting officers from placing him in handcuffs. I deployed my Taser for one five second burst aiming for the preferred target area of the large muscle group of his back and deployed the taser for a second five second burst using the drive stun technique. [CNP REDACTION] immediately ceased his attempt to resist arrest and was handcuffed without further incident. It should be noted that a subsequent search of the subject revealed a black pocket knife which was recovered from his left pants pocket.17-59319/01/201723/09/2021D.Pack2341st WardTaser DeploymentHomeless53MWResisting ArrestRadio Assignment, On-ViewDark but on Lighted PlatformNoneleft emptyleft emptyleft emptyNoneleft emptyleft empty01D.PackNoReport of man with knife - Arrestee unarmed before and at time of UoF
On 19 January 2017 at approximately 0115 Hours I, Commander Sacluti #916, responded to Davis Street "el" located at 1618 Benson for a "man with a knife call." Upon arrival I observed a male subject, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], matching the exact description that was provided by the caller. I ordered [CNP REDACTION] to lie on the ground at least 3 times and he refused. [CNP REDACTION] then began reaching into his backpack which was situated right in front of him. At that point, [CNP REDACTION] was tackled at the ground by Officer Pack. I assisted Officer Pack in gaining control of [CNP REDACTION], however, [CNP REDACTION] refused to put his hands behind his back. I delivered one knee strike to [CNP REDACTION]'s left side. [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist despite numerous loud, clear verbal commands. As a result, PO Pack deployed his taser. After a brief struggle [CNP REDACTION] was able to be placed into custody (handcuffed) and was transported to [EPD REDACTION] for medical evaluation. It should be noted: during the struggle, [CNP REDACTION] yelled numerous times: "two black dudes just jumped me; they beat me!" Refer to field general and supplements for all further details.17-59319/01/201723/09/2021Sacluti9161st WardKnee StrikeHomeless53MWResisting, City OrdinanceRadio assignment, assist unitWell-lit (superficial lighting)DNADNARedactedDNAJeffrey Cobb (arrestee)Unknown (arrestee reported he was "jumped" by two male, black subjects just prior to police contact)Redacted2602Sacluti; D.PackNoReport of man with knife - Arrestee unarmed before and at time of UoF
On 3/3/17 at approximately 2354 hours I, Ofc. D. Pack #234 responded to the north bound Davis street Metra Platform for a call of a person on the tracks. Dispatch stated a caller reported a man was laying down on the tracks possibly attempting to commit suicide. Upon arrival I observed [CNP REDACTION] standing on the north bound tracks as a Metra train approached the platform. [CNP REDACTION] was given verbal commands to exit the tracks. [CNP REDACTION] ignored my commands and continued walking toward the train. As the train pulled into the platform, and while it was still in motion, [CNP REDACTION] again ignored my commands to exit the tracks, and began to flee towards the front of the train. At this point, believing the subject was indeed attempting to harm himself, and not knowing if he possessed other means of doing so, I deployed my Taser for one five second burst from approximately 20 feet away with the target being [CNP REDACTION]'s back. The Taser deployment was unsuccessful due to excessive separation of the prongs based on the distance the Taser was deployed from. However, one of the prongs did stick into the loose end of the shirt [CNP REDACTION] was wearing, and [CNP REDACTION] immediately stopped running. I was then able to catch up to [CNP REDACTION] and grab his arm to guide him off of the tracks and onto the platform. After relocating [CNP REDACTION] to the platform I immediately placed him into handcuffs (double locked and checked for proper tension) and conducted a pat down for weapons. As I patted [CNP REDACTION] down he tensed his arms and attempted to grab my left hand as I held his hands behind his back during the pat down. I then guided [CNP REDACTION] to the ground where he began to roll around tensing his body. The pat down was subsequently completed while I held [CNP REDACTION] on the ground. No weapons or contraband were located on [CNP REDACTION]'s person. It should be noted that after completing the pat down I observed [EPD REDACTION] which were sustained while he was rolling around on the ground during the pat down.

I, Officer Neal was assisting Officer Thomas #204 chase a subject who fled from him and the scene of a crash. I observed a male subject, approximately 6 feet tall wearing a dark colored jacket and medium length hair running east on Emerson from the crash scene. In an attempt to prevent the fleeing subject from entering the roadway for his safety, I placed my vehicle in his path of travel approximately 50 feet in front of him. The subject ran around the rear of my vehicle into the middle of the street and continued running northeast. I exited my vehicle and yelled "Police, Stop!" The subject did not comply with my verbal commands and continued to flee. At this point, I am out of my vehicle and chasing the subject on foot. Considering the subject was actively disobeying, escaping a lawful arrest, made evasive maneuvers to defeat my attempt to detain him, perceived size difference, a potential to cause injury to officers or himself by running into the middle of street and ignoring verbal commands, I drew my Taser. I continued to chase the subject but it appeared that I was not gaining ground on the subject. I feared the subject was getting away as he began to head to the northwest corner of Ridge and Emerson where there was a blind left corner. The subject was approximately 20 feet in front of me and had a clear path to flee. At this time, I deployed my Taser aiming for the preferred target area, the back of the subject. The Taser appeared to miss or was ineffective. The subject turned left onto Ridge from Emerson and I continued to chase him. After closing the distance between us, I found myself in arm's length to grab him and take him down to the ground. As I went to grab him on his right collar area, the subject fell down to the ground. Officer D. Pack #234 arrived on scene and placed him in handcuffs.17-423008/05/201723/09/2021Neal1285th WardWeaponless Impact Techniques9th Ward19MBDUIOn-ViewNight Timeleft emptyleft emptyleft emptyleft emptyleft emptyleft emptyleft empty2603Neal; Thomas; D.PackNoTraffic Crash - foot pursuit of arrestee
On 5/30/17 at approximately 16:50 I (OFC Yates #143) was flagged down at [CNP REDACTION] in reference to a disturbance from Chicago and Lake. I was informed a male/black subject, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], took a woman's backpack and had run from the woman. Upon making contact with [CNP REDACTION] I grabbed a hold of his right shoulder and backpack strap which he was wearing in an effort to detain him for the disturbance investigation. As I made contact with [CNP REDACTION] he grabbed a hold of my left arm and refused to let go after he was given several verbal commands to do so. While [CNP REDACTION] was holding my left arm with his right hand his left hand was clenched in a fist. [CNP REDACTION] asked and I informed him that he was being detained at which point he began to pull away in an effort to defeat his arrest. While dealing with [CNP REDACTION] an unknown female/white subject, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], approached [CNP REDACTION] and me where she pulled my left arm and attempted to push me away from [CNP REDACTION]. I then pushed [CNP REDACTION] away in the upper chest/shoulder with an open palm. [CNP REDACTION] returned after being pushed away where she continued to try to pull me away from [CNP REDACTION]. I then grabbed [CNP REDACTION] by her sweatshirt in an effort to pull her away from me and [CNP REDACTION] so that I could affect the arrest of Gillett. Zineddine then grabbed the backpack [CNP REDACTION] was wearing and fled on foot, southbound on Chicago. I continued to attempt to place [CNP REDACTION] under arrest where he continued to pull away and tense his arm. In an effort to further gain control of [CNP REDACTION] I performed a takedown which resulted in [CNP REDACTION] falling to the ground and me falling on top of him. Once the ground [CNP REDACTION] refused to place his hands behind his back after being given several clear and loud verbal commands to do so. Assisting officers then arrived on scene and [CNP REDACTION] was placed in handcuffs without further incident. At some point after the takedown [CNP REDACTION] suffered an [EPD REDACTION] from the parking lot asphalt. [CNP REDACTION] was offered medical attention several times but refused.17-508430/05/201726/11/2021Yates1433rd WardTake DownWest Edgewater (Just north), Chicago18MBBatteryAssignmentDaylightN/AN/ARedactedN/AFabian A GillettTake downRedacted1501YatesNorace not redacted in narrative; second person's name not redactedReport of Disturbance - Officer grabbed fleeing arrestee, UoF occurred on further resistence
On 7/18/17 at approximately 0505 hours I, Ofc. D. Pack #234 responded to [CNP REDACTION] for an involuntary committal call. Dispatch informed me a subject barricaded himself in a restroom and was acting violent towards his mother. While speaking with the subject, Ofc. Nelson #233 was able to open the restroom door and the subject exited the restroom and immediately pushed officer Nelson. I attempted to gain physical control of [CNP REDACTION]'s arms to restrain him so paramedics could safely transport him to the hospital. [CNP REDACTION] repeatedly stated "fuck you you racist pigs" and began swinging his arms and kicking his legs to prevent Ofc. Nelson and I from restraining him. [CNP REDACTION] then clenched his right fist and swung it at me making contact with the left side of my face two times. Ofc. Nelson and I repeatedly told [CNP REDACTION] to stop fighting with us and place his hands behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] ignored our commands and began to kick at me. Fearing receiving further battery, and to effectively detain [CNP REDACTION] for a committal, I deployed my taser directly to [CNP REDACTION]'s torso for one 5 second burst, targeting the large muscle group in his abdomen. During the 5 second cycle of the taser, Ofc. Nelson and I were able to control [CNP REDACTION]'s arms and place handcuffs on him.

On 7/29/17 at approximately 2342 hours I, Ofc. D. Pack #234 responded to [CNP REDACTION] for an unwanted subject/city ordinance violation. I made my way up to the platform where I attempted to make contact with the subject later identified as [CNP REDACTION]. I asked [CNP REDACTION] to come speak with me but he refused and waked away from me. I caught up with [CNP REDACTION] at which point he turned around and stated, "I'm gonna fucking shoot you, don't run up on me, I'll fucking kill you". I informed [CNP REDACTION] he was under arrest for urinating in the elevator and instructed him to put his hands behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] refused and I attempted to take control of his arm so I could place him into handcuffs. [CNP REDACTION] attempted to pull away from me and I guided him up against the wall of the platform where I eventually placed him into handcuffs. Officer S. Brown #142 arrived on scene and assisted me in conducting a search of [CNP REDACTION]'s person for weapons or contraband. While we were searching Graham, he gathered saliva into his mouth and spit into the face of Officer Brown. The search was completed and [CNP REDACTION] was escorted off the platform to my squad care for transport to the Evanston Police Station. While walking [CNP REDACTION] into the squad car he began fighting with us again and kicked at Officer Brown several times while gathering saliva in his mouth again. In order to further battery to officers, and safely place him into my Police vehicle a takedown was conducted. I also utilized an open hand strike to [CNP REDACTION]'s face, to prevent him from spitting on Officers again. [CNP REDACTION] immediately became compliant and was subsequently placed into handcuffs for transport to EPD.

On 01/22/2018 at approximately 0500 hours, I (Sergeant A. Wernick #5) responded to [CNP REDACTION] to assist with a battery investigation and subsequent traffic stop related to the case. While assisting with the traffic stop, the backseat passenger-side passenger, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], had his hands in a position where I could not see them. I opened the vehicle door in order to see [CNP REDACTION]'s hands. I activated my body worn camera and advised [CNP REDACTION] I was recording him. I instructed [CNP REDACTION] to place his hands up so I could see them. [CNP REDACTION] stated his hands were up and "fuck you." I instructed [CNP REDACTION] to place his hands on the back of the front passenger seat headrest and [CNP REDACTION] refused to do so. [CNP REDACTION] continued to use profanity towards me and was defiant in placing his hands where I could see them. I continued to advise [CNP REDACTION] to keep his hands were I could see them and he responded by reaching down on the floorboard of the vehicle. I advised [CNP REDACTION] to stop reaching down to the floor and he stated he was retrieving a book. I leaned into the vehicle to see [CNP REDACTION]'s hands, at which time I smelled the distinct odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from his mouth area. I instructed [CNP REDACTION] to show me his hands and he again reached towards the floor. At that time, I attempted to take control of [CNP REDACTION]'s hands due to the fact I was unsure if he was reaching for a weapon. [CNP REDACTION] resisted by pulling his hands away from me. I was able to gain control of [CNP REDACTION]'s hands and escorted him from the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] began to turn towards me, at which time Officer D. Pack #234 gained control of [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm. I performed a leg sweep with my left leg on [CNP REDACTION]'s right leg while Officer Pack and Officer N. Chipolet #132 assisted me taking [CNP REDACTION] to the ground. While taking [CNP REDACTION] to the ground, I landed on my left knee. [CNP REDACTION] had his hands under his body and resisted by refusing to put his hands behind his back as the officer's on-scene instructed. Officer Pack, Officer Chipolet, and I performed arm bar techniques and were able to bring [CNP REDACTION]'s arms behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] was subsequently handcuffed (checked for fit and double-locked). [CNP REDACTION] was placed in the back of Squad #69 and seatbelted in. I later determined my body worn camera was de-activated while gaining control of [CNP REDACTION] and I immediately activated it.

On 6/1/19 at approximately 0043 hours I, Ofc. D. Pack #234 and my partner Ofc. J. Roden #124 were dispatched to [CNP REDACTION] for a call of a person shot. We arrived on scene with our emergency lights activated and used our squad car’s air horn to assist in dispersing a very large crowd which was gathered on the west side of the street. As we began our search for any potential gunshot victims, we encountered approximately 300 people gathered on the street, with numerous fights actively in progress. I observed [CNP REDACTION] actively engaged in a physical fight with another unknown subject. [CNP REDACTION] had his arms raised and his fists clenched, and was actively striking the unknown subject. There was also a large group of approximately 10 other people in extremely close proximity who also appeared to be engaged in the physical altercation. In order to prevent further injury to the unknown individual and others, I deployed my Taser directly to [CNP REDACTION]'s torso, targeting the large muscle group in his abdomen. During the cycle of the Taser, [CNP REDACTION] was guided to the ground using soft control techniques and placed in handcuffs (double locked and tension checked). Due to the size of the crowd engaged in the fight, the need for immediate intervention to prevent injuries to other individuals and potential escalation of the fight, I was unable to give adequate verbal commands to [CNP REDACTION] prior to deploying my Taser. It should be noted at the conclusion of the incident I discovered both of my Taser cartridges had been deployed while I was engaged with [CNP REDACTION].

On 06/01/2019 at approximaltey(sic) 0040 hours I responded to a large disturbance at [CNP REDACTION] including a person that may be shot. While clearing the area I approached a group including [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] was yelling at other people in the area and appeared to be attempting to start a fight. As I approached he was being held back near a wall by an unknown female. I ordered the group to disperse at which time [CNP REDACTION] turned toward me and stared me in the face. Unidentified people grabbed a hold of [CNP REDACTION] as he clenched his fists while still staring at me. He then attempted to walk toward me while still having his fists clenched. Unidentified people were still attempting to hold him back. At one point, [CNP REDACTION] moved around one of the subject holding him back and again attempted to engage me. In response to the large group in my vicinity, and fearing that [CNP REDACTION] would break free of the group and batter me, I deployed my department issued chemical agent toward the face of [CNP REDACTION]. In doing so, multiple people were affected and fled the area with [CNP REDACTION]. One subject (Unknown male black) did not flee the area and turned in my direction. He then stepped toward me, causing me to believe that he was going to physically engage me. In response to his actions, I sprayed another short burst of chemical agent toward his facial area. After doing so, the subject fled the area northbound. [CNP REDACTION] was located by fellow officers a short time later and taken into custody.

On the above mentioned date time and location I Officer Sosa was an assist officer for a well-being check. While attempting to interview the subject of the of the(sic) well-being check, [CNP REDACTION] closed the distance to me and was in less than an arm’s length away, clenched his hands into fists, bladed his stance and grimaced as he said “Man, I’m telling you, I have a good left and a good right”. Due to the delayed compliance to previous commands, apparent intoxication and observed aggressive behavior I felt I would be battered if I did not act immediately. I delivered and empty open hand push to the left side of [CNP REDACTION]’s face. Causing him to fall to the floor. Pack and I gave several verbal commands for him to put his hands behind his back but he refused to comply. Officer pack and I used simple joint manipulation to handcuff [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] made unsolicited statements that he was not hurt.

On 07/28/2019 at approximately 0242 hours, I, Officer Herrera *195 was dispatched to [CNP REDACTION] to process the scene for a criminal damage to property report. Upon arrival I spoke with Officer Pack *234 who stated that he was advised by complainant, [EPD REDACTION], that the offenders were still on scene. [EPD REDACTION] advised that the offenders forced the front door to the CTA station and were now on the third rail car to the south bound train. Officer Pack *234 and I walked up to the platform where [EPD REDACTION] pointed out the two offenders. I made contact with [CNP REDACTION] and took him into custody for criminal damage to property. The handcuffs were double locked and checked for fit. I walked Watson out of the rail car and onto the platform. Officer Hicks *251 arrived and searched [CNP REDACTION]. I went back onto the train to retrieve their belongings. When I returned, I observed [CNP REDACTION] attempting to use his cellphone while in handcuffs and Officers Pack *234 and Hicks *251 were trying to take the cellphone out of his hands. [CNP REDACTION] tightened his grip on his cellphone and tensed his arms up. I put their belongings on the ground and attempted to take the cellphone out of [CNP REDACTION]'s hands. Officer Pack *234 was able to successfully take the phone out of [CNP REDACTION]'s hand. Officer Pack *234 and Hicks *251 walked [CNP REDACTION] to Officer Pack’s squad car. [CNP REDACTION] did not complain of wrist pain/injury while on scene at the CTA and did not request medical attention. The incident was captured on my body worn camera and was reviewed prior to writing this report.

In summary: On 11/21/19 at approximately 0105 hrs. I, Officer Hicks #251, was dispatched to a disturbance at [CNP REDACTION] The caller told dispatch her husband was attempting to break down the door to her apartment [CNP REDACTION]. Upon arrival, Officers Pack, Romera, Hindes and I arrived in the fourth floor hallway simultaneously and observed a subject, later identified as [CNP REDACTION] outside the door of [CNP REDACTION] yelling and banging on the door. When Officer Pack instructed [CNP REDACTION] to show his hands, [CNP REDACTION] said, “Let you see my hands?” [CNP REDACTION] continued to aggressively bang on the door with his hands and feet. Pack grabbed [CNP REDACTION] in an attempt to gain compliance, but [CNP REDACTION] resisted. Officer Romero then grabbed [CNP REDACTION] and Pack Romero and [CNP REDACTION] fell to the ground. [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist and refused to be handcuffed. [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist and refused to be handcuffed. [CNP REDACTION] had a puffy winter coat on and it appeared as if he was attempting to put his hands in his pockets. I deployed my Taser to assist Pack, Romero, and Hindes in gaining control of [CNP REDACTION]'s wrists. The Taser prongs struck [CNP REDACTION] in the right arm, and although he seemed to be affected at first, he continued to fight. Due to the thickness of [CNP REDACTION]'s coat, and the fact that his coat kept being pulled due to his resisting, one of the Taser prongs came out and I observed it on the floor. [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist and attempt(sic) to go in his jacket pockets. I deployed another Taser cartridge into [CNP REDACTION]'s back. [CNP REDACTION] was still not compliant so I activated my Taser a third and fourth time, both times appeared ineffective possibly due to the prongs continuously being extracted by the movement of [CNP REDACTION]'s coat against his body. After the final Taser deployment, officers were able to gain control of [CNP REDACTION] and place him in handcuffs.19-1057221/11/201922/09/2021D.Pack2344th WardTaser4th Ward30MBleft emptyRadio dispatchIndoors, lightedNoneN/AEvanston Hospital, ER Dr. GowarN/AErick M.

I grabbed [CNP REDACTION] in an attempt to prevent him from striking an unknown female subject. Due to the close proximity and rapidly evolving nature of the situation I was unable to give adequate verbal commands.

On 5/27/20 at approximately 20:30 hours I, Det. Velez (151), attempted to take [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] into custody for Obstruction of an investigation, Disobedience to Police, Obstructing the Roadway, and Disorderly Conduct (see field general for further details. [CNP REDACTION] was observed in front of his residence [CNP REDACTION] engaged in a hand-to-hand transaction with a vehicle (IL reg# [EPD REDACTION]) stopped in front of his residence. [CNP REDACTION] observed us pulling our squad car up and immediately retreated into his residence and observed us turn our squad around to head in the direction of the vehicle he left. Det.'s Shanas, Wideman, and myself affected an investigative stop on said vehicle at the [CNP REDACTION]. The investigative stop revealed a suspended driver and felony amounts of narcotics (see field general for futher). At this point, I observed [CNP REDACTION] traveling W/B on Church and partially hanging out the passenger window as he approached the investigation site. [CNP REDACTION] yelled "What the fuck is y'all on?" The vehicle immediately pulled over just West of the investigation and [CNP REDACTION] exited walking E/B in the W/B traffic lane of Church. [CNP REDACTION] produced an object with a light on it and began walking directly towards the investigation. Knowing [CNP REDACTION] had a relationship with the vehicle and observed us diverting our route to follow it, I asked [CNP REDACTION] not to interfere with the traffic stop and to stay where he was. [CNP REDACTION] walked around me and continued E/B approaching the vehicle, not attempting to go to the South side walkway of Church ave. [CNP REDACTION] positioned himself behind Det. Shanas forcing him to turn his attention away from the traffic stop and towards [CNP REDACTION]. I ordered [CNP REDACTION] to put his hands behind his back for disobeying my orders and [CNP REDACTION] continued walking away ignoring my order. As [CNP REDACTION] continued walking away I turned away from him towards Det. Shanas and Wideman. [CNP REDACTION] began coming back towards the investigation again and I was forced to again address his presence. [CNP REDACTION] began to retreat again when back-up units arrived and [CNP REDACTION] began running from them also. [CNP REDACTION] ran E/B on Church continuing to obstruct traffic, and then S/B on Asbury also obstructing traffic. [CNP REDACTION] then resisted away from Ofc. Vasquez, causing both [CNP REDACTION] and Ofc. Vasquez to fall, and then attempted to elude Ofc. Pack and myself. It should be noted, [CNP REDACTION] was not wearing clothing on his upper torso when he fell. [CNP REDACTION] double back away from Ofc. Vasquez towards Ofc. Pack and I. Ofc. Pack attempted to grab [CNP REDACTION] by his left hand and upper body and [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist via pulling away. I attempted to control [CNP REDACTION] by his upper body and later right arm as we performed a "takedown" by guiding [CNP REDACTION] to the ground and ordering his hands behind his back. We gave [CNP REDACTION] several loud clear verbal commands to place his hands behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] stiffened his arms before we ultimately were able to gain control of both hands, handcuffing and double locking for fit. Upon arrival, [CNP REDACTION] was seen by [EPD REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] exhibited [EPD REDACTION], which were photographed via an Evanston Police Evidence Technician. See field general for further details.

On 3/8/16 at approximately 0305 hours I, Officer D. Pack responded to a call of a suspicious person in the rear of [CNP REDACTION]. I subsequently engaged [CNP REDACTION] in the back yard of [CNP REDACTION] as part of an ongoing investigation of said suspicious person call. I encountered [CNP REDACTION], who was concealing himself under the deck area of the above address, who I believed to be a subject who fled from an earlier traffic stop in which a loaded gun was recovered from a stolen vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] was given verbal commands to crawl out from under the deck and [CNP REDACTION] initially followed my instructions. After being physically removed from under the deck by Ofc. Virani, [CNP REDACTION] was ordered to place his hands behind his back which he refused to do. [CNP REDACTION] tensed his arms and thrashed around on the ground kicking his feet in the air. [CNP REDACTION] was advised to stop resisting multiple times, but continued to stiffen up and resist attempts by Ofc. Virani and Ofc. Reza to place him in handcuffs. At this point, believing the subject could be armed, and due to his actively resisting arrest, I placed my Taser against his left buttocks. I informed [CNP REDACTION] if he continued to resist arrest he would be tased. [CNP REDACTION] then slapped the Taser away from his body and attempted to roll over with his arms clenched to his side. I deployed my Taser for one five second burst using a drive-stun technique to the [CNP REDACTION]'s left buttocks. [CNP REDACTION] immediately ceased his attempts to resist arrest and was handcuffed without further incident.

On 4/17/16 at approximately 2152 hours I was called to [CNP REDACTION] by Officer Virani and Servatius who were conducting a traffic stop. Once on scene the driver, later identified as [CNP REDACTION] became extremely irate and aggressive. At one point he forcefully opened his car door and struck assisting Officer N. Jones in the leg. [CNP REDACTION] was immediately ordered under arrest; however he refused to exit his vehicle. I opened the driver's side door and grabbed hold of [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm while assisting officers grabbed hold of his other arm. [CNP REDACTION] was ordered numerous times to exit the vehicle and to stop resisting arrest. He braced himself inside the vehicle and attempted to climb to the passenger side of the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] was successfully removed from the vehicle and an assisted, controlled take down of [CNP REDACTION] was performed in the roadway where he was then handcuffed.16-991117/04/201617/12/2021Miller268th WardControlled take down5th Ward22MBTraffic, resisting arrest, battery to police officerTraffic arrest/AssistDark, LightedSgt.

On 10/08/2016 at approximately 0108 hours I (Ofc. Nawotka #243) responded to the area of 1400 Chicago for an in progress battery. Upon arrival at the scene my attention was drawn to Sgt. Wernick #5 and Ofc. Virani #163 who were attempting to take [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] into custody. I began to assist as Sgt. Wernick and Ofc. Virani brought [CNP REDACTION] to the ground. While on the ground, [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist, refusing to turn over onto his stomach. [CNP REDACTION] was using his arms to push away and refused to comply with multiple orders to turn over and place his hands behind his back. Unable to gain compliance, and having difficulty restraining [CNP REDACTION] due to the fact that he was 6'03" and approximately 250 lbs., I administered approximately three knee strikes to the side of [CNP REDACTION]'s torso. With the knee strikes and the efforts of Sgt. Wernick and Ofc. Virani, we were able to get Hamilton to roll over onto his stomach. We continued to have problems gaining control of [CNP REDACTION]'s arms due to the fact that he was lying against bushes. Sgt. Wernick and I pulled Hamilton across the ground in order to gain some space. At this time I felt a sharp pain in my lower back, but continued to assist with placing Hamilton into handcuffs and sitting him up.

On 5/31/16 at approximately 0348 hours I, OFC Niedziela *118 responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a report of a burglary in progress. Prior to my arrival, Detective Geyer advised via radio transmission he was in a foot pursuit with the suspect east bound on Main from Chicago and then soutbound through the east alley of Chicago at Main. I drove my marked patrol vehicle through the alley and observed Detective Geyer and OFC Virani pursuing a m/[EPD REDACTION] subject wearing dark clothing. While driving my vehicle I observed the subject turn east bound through the alley toward Hinman. I immediately exited my patrol vehicle and pursued the subject on foot. I yelled loudly at the subject stating, "Evanston Police! Stop running!" The subject ignored my verbal commands and continued to flee east bound through the alley toward Hinman and then ran north bound on Hinman. I continued to yell verbal commands for the subject to stop running and advised my office as Evanston Police. The subject then fled east bound in the 800 block of Hinman through the middle of the street and then south bound on Hinman. I was able to catch up to the subject and tackled him on the south east side of the street on Hinman. The subject immediately began to attempt to free himself by violently twisting and turning his body and swung his elbows into my face and chest. In fear for my safety, I struck the subject in the face with a close fist approximately 2-3 times. I repeatedly told the subject he was under arrest and to place his arms behind his back. The subject continued to resist my arrest by tensing the muscles in both of his arms and tucking them underneath his body. The subject then attempted to reach toward his waistband. In fear the subject may be attempting to access a weapon from underneath himself I struck the again with a closed fist approximately 2-3 times. Several officers then arrived on scene and assisted by taking hold of the subject's arms, placing them behind his back and I then placed him into handcuffs(s).16-1456731/05/201602/10/2021Niedziela1183rd WardClose fist hand strikes6th Ward20MWBurglary, Resisting ArrestBurglary in progress, assisting unitDarkleft emptyNoneleft emptyleft emptyleft emptyleft emptyleft empty10?03Niedziela; Geyer; ViraniNoChasing arrestee

On 05/31/16 at approximately 0348hrs, I. Officer Virani #163, responded to a burglary in progress call at [CNP REDACTION]. The caller stated that a male in dark clothing had burglarized the business at [CNP REDACTION]. As I pulled up, dispatch stated that the subject was walking on [CNP REDACTION]. Upon observing the suspect, later identified as [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION], I exited my marked squad car. [CNP REDACTION] observed me and Det. Geyer and began running southbound on [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] continued running eastbound on [CNP REDACTION] and then southbound through the east alley of the 800 block of [CNP REDACTION].

I observed [CNP REDACTION] run northbound on [CNP REDACTION] and then immediately southbound on [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] was taken down by Officer Niedziela along the east curb in the 800 block of [CNP REDACTION]. I observed [CNP REDACTION] holding both of his arms under his torso despite out verbal commands from Officer Niedziela to stop resisting. Due to [CNP REDACTION] ignoring multiple, loud verbal commands to stop resisting and to place his hands behind his back, I performed a closed fist hand strike to the right cheek area of [CNP REDACTION]'s face using my right hand. At this point, [CNP REDACTION]'s arms were placed behind his back and he was handcuffed by Officer Niedziela. See Ofc.

On 07/18/16 at approximately 0004hrs, I, Officer Virani #163, was on routine patrol driving northbound on Sherman from Greenleaf. I observed a vehicle bearing IL plate [CNP REDACTION] travelling northbound on Sherman, approaching Crain. The rear registration light was inoperable and the vehicle disobeyed a stop sign at Crain and Sherman. I performed a traffic stop on the vehicle at [CNP REDACTION] and made contact with the driver, [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] A LEADS check revealed his driver's license was revoked. After detecting an odor of alcoholic beverage emanating from [CNP REDACTION], I performed a Standardized Field Sobriety Tests on [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] was placed in custody for DUI and placed in the rear of my squad car. I performed an inventory search on [CNP REDACTION]'s vehicle and returned to the rear passenger side of my vehicle where [CNP REDACTION] was seated. I was attempting to inform him that his vehicle would be towed from the scene. I opened the door at which point [CNP REDACTION] immediately kicked the door open and forced his way out of the vehicle in an attempt to escape. Both of [CNP REDACTION]'s feet were on the ground. I used an open hand technique and pushed [CNP REDACTION] on his chest in order to get him back inside of the vehicle. The struggle with [CNP REDACTION] began at 0034hrs and continued until 0039hrs. During this struggle, [CNP REDACTION] repeatedly kicked his legs towards my torso and eventually kicked my right leg just above my knee. Due to [CNP REDACTION] not complying and his constant escalation of resistance, I performed a closed fist hand strike twice with my right hand to the face of [CNP REDACTION] in order to stun him and gain compliance. It should be noted that [CNP REDACTION] claimed he was being choked during the struggle. [CNP REDACTION] had made multiple threats of spitting on me. I used an open hand technique to push on the jawline of [CNP REDACTION] in order to move his head, and subsequently his body, towards the interior of the vehicle. At no point did [CNP REDACTION] lose consciousness. He was able to breathe and yell at all times during the struggle. Eventually, [CNP REDACTION] was secured inside of the squad car and transported to EPD.16-2048918/07/201619/09/2021Virani1634th WardClosed fist hand strikeRoger’s Park, Chicago49MBAgg Battery to PO, Agg DUI, Agg Revoked DL, Resisting POOn view traffic stopNighttime, street lightingDNAleft emptyRedactedleft emptyLashawn StewartPhysical altercation with officers while resisting arrestRedacted2601ViraniNocar plate # not redactedTraffic Stop - revoked DL
On 10/08/2016 at approximately 0108 hours, I, Officer Virani #163, responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a call of a battery. Upon arrival, several subjects were on scene. I along with Sergeant Wernick #5 made initial contact with [CNP REDACTION]. Due to [CNP REDACTION]'s close proximity to the victim, [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] we gave multiple loud verbal commands for [CNP REDACTION] to move back away from the immediate area. [CNP REDACTION] ignored our repeated commands and was warned that he would be arrested. [CNP REDACTION] continued to ignore commands and we therefore advised him that he was being arrested for disobedience to police on the public way. [CNP REDACTION] was given loud verbal commands to place his hands behind his back but refused. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s left wrist and attempted to pull his hand behind his back in order to place him in handcuffs. I attempted this twice, both times with [CNP REDACTION] aggressively pulling his arms to the front of his body in order to defeat the arrest. To gain control of [CNP REDACTION], as I was standing behind him I placed my right arm over [CNP REDACTION]'s right shoulder and across the top of his chest. I pulled back and brought [CNP REDACTION] to the ground. While on the ground, [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist and would not roll over onto his stomach. We were able to turn [CNP REDACTION] over and place his hands behind his back and handcuff him. Officer Nawotka #243 was assisting in placing [CNP REDACTION] under arrest and [EPD REDACTION] during the process. See Officer Nawotka's report for further.16-2943610/10/201623/09/2021Virani1633rd WardControlled takedown2nd Ward54MBBattery, Resisting Arrest, Disobedience to PoliceAssignmentNighttime, street lightingOfficer Nawotka #243While attempting to place resisting suspect in handcuffsleft emptyRedactedleft emptyleft emptyleft empty9603Virani; Wernick; NawotkaNoReport of Battery - Arrestee not following orders
On 02/05/2017 at approximately 0135 hours, I, Officer Virani #163 was driving westbound on Grove, approaching Ridge. A cab driving northbound on Ridge at Grove flagged me down for a dispute on the destination the passengers were going to. Due to the unexpectedness of the incident, I exited my squad car without activating my in-car audio and video system. I made contact with the rear driver's side passenger [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION], who stated that he had to urinate. I explained to him several times that he needed to stay in the car after he requested to step out of the vehicle and urinate in public. [CNP REDACTION] stated that he urinated himself inside of the cab. I turned my flashlight on and shined it inside of the vehicle. As I was talking to [CNP REDACTION], he became irritated that my flashlight was illuminating the interior of the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] gritted his teeth, causing his jaw to visibly clench. [CNP REDACTION] grabbed my left forearm, which was resting on the lower portion of the window frame of the rear driver's side door. I told [CNP REDACTION] to let go of my arm. He did not and continued to hold onto it as I pulled my arm back. [CNP REDACTION] continued to hold my forearm and pulled it back in toward the vehicle. I again pulled my arm back but was unable to free my arm. Due to [CNP REDACTION]'s actions and him refusing my verbal commands, I performed a closed fist hand strike with my right hand to the nose of [CNP REDACTION] in order to stun him and release my arm from his grip. This method proved successful. I then opened the rear driver's side door and ordered [CNP REDACTION] out of the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] stayed within the vehicle and ignored my verbal commands to exit the vehicle. I then pulled on the back of [CNP REDACTION]'s shirt collar and again gave a verbal command to exit the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] still ignored my commands. Due to this, I pulled [CNP REDACTION] out of the vehicle while holding his collar and performed a forward take down from his seated position in the vehicle to the ground outside of the vehicle. I was then able to place [CNP REDACTION] into handcuffs, which were tension checked and locked.17-115105/02/201724/09/2021Virani1634th WardHand strike/Controlled takedownPortage Park, Chicago44MWBatteryOn-viewNighttime, street lightingN/Aleft emptyRedactedleft emptyAgustin ChaparroDuring forward takedownRedacted2601ViraniNoOfficer flagged down for directions - Passenger not allowed to get out to urinate, grabbed officer's arm and would not let go when officer shined light in face
On 06/10/2017 at approximately 0017 hours, I, Officer Virani #163, responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a check well-being call in which a male subject was possibly overdosing. Upon arrival, I encountered two females and one male in front of location that were related to the call. I advised all three that I would need their information for the report. One of the females, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], [EPD REDACTION], began to walk away and ignored verbal commands to stay on scene. [CNP REDACTION] had not given his name at this point. I asked if he was [CNP REDACTION] since he looked familiar to me, to which he stated that he was. I advised him that I recognized him from an incident at [CNP REDACTION] from last year in which [CNP REDACTION] was arrested by myself and other officers. This caused [CNP REDACTION] to become more upset knowing that I was involved with his arrest in that incident. [CNP REDACTION] stated that he would beat my ass if I weren't wearing my uniform and that he would "catch me outside" of work. As [CNP REDACTION] was threatening me verbally, he spat on the ground near my feet. [CNP REDACTION] took a bladed stance and clenched his fists, at one point punching his fist into his hand, and stated that he was going to beat my ass. [CNP REDACTION] was also within arms reach of me, approximately a foot away. Due to [CNP REDACTION]'s physical stance with him being taller than me with a muscular build, as well as his bladed stance and clenched fists. I believed I was in immediate danger of receiving a battery from [CNP REDACTION]. Due to being in fear of receiving a battery, I performed one open hand strike using my right hand to the left side of [CNP REDACTION]'s face so as to stun him. This proved effective, at which point both myself and Officer Jones #214, were able to place [CNP REDACTION] in handcuffs without further incident. It should be noted that during this incident, Officer Jones was continually giving orders to [CNP REDACTION] to calm down, which [CNP REDACTION] ignored. The handcuffs were tension checked and locked. [CNP REDACTION] was transported to the Evanston Police Department for further processing.17-549610/06/201708/11/2021Virani1633rd WardOpen hand palm strike6th Ward21MWAggravated Assault to a Police OfficerRadio assignmentNighttime, street lightingDNADNARedactedDNaParker Cavaliers, Ofc.

On 09/28/2017 at approximately 0015 hrs. Officer Harvey #133 and I, Officer Virani #163, responded to the area of [CNP REDACTION] for a man with a gun call. TAC officers were in a foot chase with two suspects that were armed and dangerous in the area and had requested additional assistance. While standing in the [CNP REDACTION], I heard two loud gunshots come from the southeast of our location. The gunshots sounded extremely close by an estimated 30 yards. An unknown male in an apartment window on the east side of Ashland yelled out to myself and Officer Harvey, "You better go get them! I'm recording!" He stated several times that we better go get them. Approximately 2 seconds after him stating this, I looked to the southeast and observed two male blacks walking away from us. This was the same area that I heard the gunshots coming from. The males were later identified as [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] and [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION]. Both males matched the descriptions put out by dispatch. Both subjects began walking southbound away from us into Willye White Park. Myself and Officer Harvey approached tactically with our guns drawn and gave multiple loud, verbal commands for both subjects to stop and get on the ground. Both subjects continued walking away from us. I noticed [CNP REDACTION] look over his left shoulder at me and continue to ignore our verbal commands despite both officers having our guns drawn. Officer Harvey removed his taser from its holster and placed it on the back of [CNP REDACTION] and directed him to the ground. At this time, [CNP REDACTION] had complied and gotten on the ground. [CNP REDACTION] turned fully toward Officer Harvey and continued to refuse verbal commands. Based on the totality of the circumstances on hearing gunshots in close proximity to our location, seeing both subjects leaving the area, the ignoring of multiple verbal commands, and that [CNP REDACTION] matched the description of one of the subjects with a gun, I feared he was turning toward us in an attempt to either batter us or use a weapon against us. Due to this, I unholstered my taser and deployed it, striking [CNP REDACTION] in his lower torso. [CNP REDACTION] went to the ground and eventually turned over onto his stomach. Assisting officers arrived on scene and placed him in handcuffs.17-970728/09/201719/09/2021Virani163Roger's ParkTaser DeploymentRoger’s Park, Chicago37MBParole Violation WarrantRadio assignmentNighttime, street lightingDNADNARedactedDNARafael A.

On 04/30/2019 at 1720hrs, I, Officer Virani #163, responded to a retail theft report at Whole Foods located at 1640 Chicago Ave. Officer Golubski #240 requested an assist unit due to a female offender, now identified as [CNP REDACTION], who was being uncooperative. Once on scene, [CNP REDACTION] was advised that she was under arrest. I took hold of [CNP REDACTION]'s left hand and arm. I immediately felt [CNP REDACTION] tense her left arm and attempt to pull it back in front of her torso. I was unable to get [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm behind her back to secure it with handcuffs. Due to [CNP REDACTION] resisting, I pushed [CNP REDACTION] onto her back while she was still situated in front of the chair. The chair tipped over backwards and the back of [CNP REDACTION]'s head struck a table while being escorted to the ground. Once on the ground, [CNP REDACTION] was on her back. [CNP REDACTION] then kicked me with her foot (unknown leg). [CNP REDACTION]'s foot struck the front of my lower left leg. Officer Golubski and I were able to get [CNP REDACTION] onto her stomach and a handcuff secured on her left wrist. [CNP REDACTION]'s right arm was under [CNP REDACTION]'s torso. [CNP REDACTION] refused to remove her right arm and hand from underneath her torso. I was able to pull [CNP REDACTION]'s right arm from under her torso. [CNP REDACTION] was still holding her cell phone. It was difficult to secure the right handcuff to [CNP REDACTION]'s right wrist with the cellphone in her hand. I used joint manipulation (pain compliance) to [CNP REDACTION]'s left thumb, which caused her to release hold of her cell phone. [CNP REDACTION]'s left hand was then secured. I reviewed my body worn camera prior to authoring this report.19-341530/04/201929/11/2021Virani1631st WardTakedown, Joint Manipulation1st Ward24FWRetail Theft, Resisting Arrest, BatteryRadio AssignmentInterior lightingDNADNADNADNADNADNADNA2702 Virani; GolubskiYesAssist on Reported Retail Theft - UoF occurred due to noncompliant arrestee

On 3/8/16 at approximately 0305 hours I, Officer D. Pack responded to a call of a suspicious person in the rear of [CNP REDACTION]. I subsequently engaged [CNP REDACTION] in the back yard of [CNP REDACTION] as part of an ongoing investigation of said suspicious person call. I encountered [CNP REDACTION], who was concealing himself under the deck area of the above address, who I believed to be a subject who fled from an earlier traffic stop in which a loaded gun was recovered from a stolen vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] was given verbal commands to crawl out from under the deck and [CNP REDACTION] initially followed my instructions. After being physically removed from under the deck by Ofc. Virani, [CNP REDACTION] was ordered to place his hands behind his back which he refused to do. [CNP REDACTION] tensed his arms and thrashed around on the ground kicking his feet in the air. [CNP REDACTION] was advised to stop resisting multiple times, but continued to stiffen up and resist attempts by Ofc. Virani and Ofc. Reza to place him in handcuffs. At this point, believing the subject could be armed, and due to his actively resisting arrest, I placed my Taser against his left buttocks. I informed [CNP REDACTION] if he continued to resist arrest he would be tased. [CNP REDACTION] then slapped the Taser away from his body and attempted to roll over with his arms clenched to his side. I deployed my Taser for one five second burst using a drive-stun technique to the [CNP REDACTION]'s left buttocks. [CNP REDACTION] immediately ceased his attempts to resist arrest and was handcuffed without further incident.

On 4/17/16 at approximately 2152 hours I was called to [CNP REDACTION] by Officer Virani and Servatius who were conducting a traffic stop. Once on scene the driver, later identified as [CNP REDACTION] became extremely irate and aggressive. At one point he forcefully opened his car door and struck assisting Officer N. Jones in the leg. [CNP REDACTION] was immediately ordered under arrest; however he refused to exit his vehicle. I opened the driver's side door and grabbed hold of [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm while assisting officers grabbed hold of his other arm. [CNP REDACTION] was ordered numerous times to exit the vehicle and to stop resisting arrest. He braced himself inside the vehicle and attempted to climb to the passenger side of the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] was successfully removed from the vehicle and an assisted, controlled take down of [CNP REDACTION] was performed in the roadway where he was then handcuffed.16-991117/04/201617/12/2021Miller268th WardControlled take down5th Ward22MBTraffic, resisting arrest, battery to police officerTraffic arrest/AssistDark, LightedSgt.

On 10/08/2016 at approximately 0108 hours I (Ofc. Nawotka #243) responded to the area of 1400 Chicago for an in progress battery. Upon arrival at the scene my attention was drawn to Sgt. Wernick #5 and Ofc. Virani #163 who were attempting to take [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] into custody. I began to assist as Sgt. Wernick and Ofc. Virani brought [CNP REDACTION] to the ground. While on the ground, [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist, refusing to turn over onto his stomach. [CNP REDACTION] was using his arms to push away and refused to comply with multiple orders to turn over and place his hands behind his back. Unable to gain compliance, and having difficulty restraining [CNP REDACTION] due to the fact that he was 6'03" and approximately 250 lbs., I administered approximately three knee strikes to the side of [CNP REDACTION]'s torso. With the knee strikes and the efforts of Sgt. Wernick and Ofc. Virani, we were able to get Hamilton to roll over onto his stomach. We continued to have problems gaining control of [CNP REDACTION]'s arms due to the fact that he was lying against bushes. Sgt. Wernick and I pulled Hamilton across the ground in order to gain some space. At this time I felt a sharp pain in my lower back, but continued to assist with placing Hamilton into handcuffs and sitting him up. See field general and supplements for further details.16-2943624/10/201623/09/2021Nawotka2433rd WardKnee Strikes2nd Ward54MBBattery, resisting, disobedience to policeAssignmentNight with street lightingOfc.

On 5/31/16 at approximately 0348 hours I, OFC Niedziela *118 responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a report of a burglary in progress. Prior to my arrival, Detective Geyer advised via radio transmission he was in a foot pursuit with the suspect east bound on Main from Chicago and then soutbound through the east alley of Chicago at Main. I drove my marked patrol vehicle through the alley and observed Detective Geyer and OFC Virani pursuing a m/[EPD REDACTION] subject wearing dark clothing. While driving my vehicle I observed the subject turn east bound through the alley toward Hinman. I immediately exited my patrol vehicle and pursued the subject on foot. I yelled loudly at the subject stating, "Evanston Police! Stop running!" The subject ignored my verbal commands and continued to flee east bound through the alley toward Hinman and then ran north bound on Hinman. I continued to yell verbal commands for the subject to stop running and advised my office as Evanston Police. The subject then fled east bound in the 800 block of Hinman through the middle of the street and then south bound on Hinman. I was able to catch up to the subject and tackled him on the south east side of the street on Hinman. The subject immediately began to attempt to free himself by violently twisting and turning his body and swung his elbows into my face and chest. In fear for my safety, I struck the subject in the face with a close fist approximately 2-3 times. I repeatedly told the subject he was under arrest and to place his arms behind his back. The subject continued to resist my arrest by tensing the muscles in both of his arms and tucking them underneath his body. The subject then attempted to reach toward his waistband. In fear the subject may be attempting to access a weapon from underneath himself I struck the again with a closed fist approximately 2-3 times. Several officers then arrived on scene and assisted by taking hold of the subject's arms, placing them behind his back and I then placed him into handcuffs(s).16-1456731/05/201602/10/2021Niedziela1183rd WardClose fist hand strikes6th Ward20MWBurglary, Resisting ArrestBurglary in progress, assisting unitDarkleft emptyNoneleft emptyleft emptyleft emptyleft emptyleft empty10?03Niedziela; Geyer; ViraniNoChasing arrestee

On 05/31/16 at approximately 0348hrs, I. Officer Virani #163, responded to a burglary in progress call at [CNP REDACTION]. The caller stated that a male in dark clothing had burglarized the business at [CNP REDACTION]. As I pulled up, dispatch stated that the subject was walking on [CNP REDACTION]. Upon observing the suspect, later identified as [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION], I exited my marked squad car. [CNP REDACTION] observed me and Det. Geyer and began running southbound on [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] continued running eastbound on [CNP REDACTION] and then southbound through the east alley of the 800 block of [CNP REDACTION]. Officer Niedziela #118 followed our radio traffic and drove his marked squad car down the east alley of [CNP REDACTION] in an attempt to intercept [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] then started running eastbound down a gangway towards the 800 block of [CNP REDACTION]. Officer Niedziela was in front of myself and Det. Geyer. I observed [CNP REDACTION] run northbound on [CNP REDACTION] and then immediately southbound on [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] was taken down by Officer Niedziela along the east curb in the 800 block of [CNP REDACTION]. I observed [CNP REDACTION] holding both of his arms under his torso despite out verbal commands from Officer Niedziela to stop resisting. Due to [CNP REDACTION] ignoring multiple, loud verbal commands to stop resisting and to place his hands behind his back, I performed a closed fist hand strike to the right cheek area of [CNP REDACTION]'s face using my right hand. At this point, [CNP REDACTION]'s arms were placed behind his back and he was handcuffed by Officer Niedziela. See Ofc.

On 07/18/16 at approximately 0004hrs, I, Officer Virani #163, was on routine patrol driving northbound on Sherman from Greenleaf. I observed a vehicle bearing IL plate [CNP REDACTION] travelling northbound on Sherman, approaching Crain. The rear registration light was inoperable and the vehicle disobeyed a stop sign at Crain and Sherman. I performed a traffic stop on the vehicle at [CNP REDACTION] and made contact with the driver, [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] A LEADS check revealed his driver's license was revoked. After detecting an odor of alcoholic beverage emanating from [CNP REDACTION], I performed a Standardized Field Sobriety Tests on [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] was placed in custody for DUI and placed in the rear of my squad car. I performed an inventory search on [CNP REDACTION]'s vehicle and returned to the rear passenger side of my vehicle where [CNP REDACTION] was seated. I was attempting to inform him that his vehicle would be towed from the scene. I opened the door at which point [CNP REDACTION] immediately kicked the door open and forced his way out of the vehicle in an attempt to escape. Both of [CNP REDACTION]'s feet were on the ground. I used an open hand technique and pushed [CNP REDACTION] on his chest in order to get him back inside of the vehicle. The struggle with [CNP REDACTION] began at 0034hrs and continued until 0039hrs. During this struggle, [CNP REDACTION] repeatedly kicked his legs towards my torso and eventually kicked my right leg just above my knee. Due to [CNP REDACTION] not complying and his constant escalation of resistance, I performed a closed fist hand strike twice with my right hand to the face of [CNP REDACTION] in order to stun him and gain compliance. It should be noted that [CNP REDACTION] claimed he was being choked during the struggle. [CNP REDACTION] had made multiple threats of spitting on me. I used an open hand technique to push on the jawline of [CNP REDACTION] in order to move his head, and subsequently his body, towards the interior of the vehicle. At no point did [CNP REDACTION] lose consciousness. He was able to breathe and yell at all times during the struggle. Eventually, [CNP REDACTION] was secured inside of the squad car and transported to EPD.16-2048918/07/201619/09/2021Virani1634th WardClosed fist hand strikeRoger’s Park, Chicago49MBAgg Battery to PO, Agg DUI, Agg Revoked DL, Resisting POOn view traffic stopNighttime, street lightingDNAleft emptyRedactedleft emptyLashawn StewartPhysical altercation with officers while resisting arrestRedacted2601ViraniNocar plate # not redactedTraffic Stop - revoked DL
On 10/08/2016 at approximately 0108 hours, I, Officer Virani #163, responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a call of a battery. Upon arrival, several subjects were on scene. I along with Sergeant Wernick #5 made initial contact with [CNP REDACTION]. Due to [CNP REDACTION]'s close proximity to the victim, [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] we gave multiple loud verbal commands for [CNP REDACTION] to move back away from the immediate area. [CNP REDACTION] ignored our repeated commands and was warned that he would be arrested. [CNP REDACTION] continued to ignore commands and we therefore advised him that he was being arrested for disobedience to police on the public way. [CNP REDACTION] was given loud verbal commands to place his hands behind his back but refused. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s left wrist and attempted to pull his hand behind his back in order to place him in handcuffs. I attempted this twice, both times with [CNP REDACTION] aggressively pulling his arms to the front of his body in order to defeat the arrest. To gain control of [CNP REDACTION], as I was standing behind him I placed my right arm over [CNP REDACTION]'s right shoulder and across the top of his chest. I pulled back and brought [CNP REDACTION] to the ground. While on the ground, [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist and would not roll over onto his stomach. We were able to turn [CNP REDACTION] over and place his hands behind his back and handcuff him. Officer Nawotka #243 was assisting in placing [CNP REDACTION] under arrest and [EPD REDACTION] during the process.

On 02/05/2017 at approximately 0135 hours, I, Officer Virani #163 was driving westbound on Grove, approaching Ridge. A cab driving northbound on Ridge at Grove flagged me down for a dispute on the destination the passengers were going to. Due to the unexpectedness of the incident, I exited my squad car without activating my in-car audio and video system. I made contact with the rear driver's side passenger [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION], who stated that he had to urinate. I explained to him several times that he needed to stay in the car after he requested to step out of the vehicle and urinate in public. [CNP REDACTION] stated that he urinated himself inside of the cab. I turned my flashlight on and shined it inside of the vehicle. As I was talking to [CNP REDACTION], he became irritated that my flashlight was illuminating the interior of the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] gritted his teeth, causing his jaw to visibly clench. [CNP REDACTION] grabbed my left forearm, which was resting on the lower portion of the window frame of the rear driver's side door. I told [CNP REDACTION] to let go of my arm. He did not and continued to hold onto it as I pulled my arm back. [CNP REDACTION] continued to hold my forearm and pulled it back in toward the vehicle. I again pulled my arm back but was unable to free my arm. Due to [CNP REDACTION]'s actions and him refusing my verbal commands, I performed a closed fist hand strike with my right hand to the nose of [CNP REDACTION] in order to stun him and release my arm from his grip. This method proved successful. I then opened the rear driver's side door and ordered [CNP REDACTION] out of the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] stayed within the vehicle and ignored my verbal commands to exit the vehicle. I then pulled on the back of [CNP REDACTION]'s shirt collar and again gave a verbal command to exit the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] still ignored my commands. Due to this, I pulled [CNP REDACTION] out of the vehicle while holding his collar and performed a forward take down from his seated position in the vehicle to the ground outside of the vehicle. I was then able to place [CNP REDACTION] into handcuffs, which were tension checked and locked.17-115105/02/201724/09/2021Virani1634th WardHand strike/Controlled takedownPortage Park, Chicago44MWBatteryOn-viewNighttime, street lightingN/Aleft emptyRedactedleft emptyAgustin ChaparroDuring forward takedownRedacted2601ViraniNoOfficer flagged down for directions - Passenger not allowed to get out to urinate, grabbed officer's arm and would not let go when officer shined light in face
On 06/10/2017 at approximately 0017 hours, I, Officer Virani #163, responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a check well-being call in which a male subject was possibly overdosing. Upon arrival, I encountered two females and one male in front of location that were related to the call. I advised all three that I would need their information for the report. One of the females, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], [EPD REDACTION], began to walk away and ignored verbal commands to stay on scene. [CNP REDACTION] had not given his name at this point. I asked if he was [CNP REDACTION] since he looked familiar to me, to which he stated that he was. I advised him that I recognized him from an incident at [CNP REDACTION] from last year in which [CNP REDACTION] was arrested by myself and other officers. This caused [CNP REDACTION] to become more upset knowing that I was involved with his arrest in that incident. [CNP REDACTION] stated that he would beat my ass if I weren't wearing my uniform and that he would "catch me outside" of work. As [CNP REDACTION] was threatening me verbally, he spat on the ground near my feet. [CNP REDACTION] took a bladed stance and clenched his fists, at one point punching his fist into his hand, and stated that he was going to beat my ass. [CNP REDACTION] was also within arms reach of me, approximately a foot away. Due to [CNP REDACTION]'s physical stance with him being taller than me with a muscular build, as well as his bladed stance and clenched fists. I believed I was in immediate danger of receiving a battery from [CNP REDACTION]. Due to being in fear of receiving a battery, I performed one open hand strike using my right hand to the left side of [CNP REDACTION]'s face so as to stun him. This proved effective, at which point both myself and Officer Jones #214, were able to place [CNP REDACTION] in handcuffs without further incident. It should be noted that during this incident, Officer Jones was continually giving orders to [CNP REDACTION] to calm down, which [CNP REDACTION] ignored. The handcuffs were tension checked and locked. [CNP REDACTION] was transported to the Evanston Police Department for further processing.17-549610/06/201708/11/2021Virani1633rd WardOpen hand palm strike6th Ward21MWAggravated Assault to a Police OfficerRadio assignmentNighttime, street lightingDNADNARedactedDNaParker Cavaliers, Ofc.

On 09/28/2017 at approximately 0015 hrs. Officer Harvey #133 and I, Officer Virani #163, responded to the area of [CNP REDACTION] for a man with a gun call. TAC officers were in a foot chase with two suspects that were armed and dangerous in the area and had requested additional assistance. While standing in the [CNP REDACTION], I heard two loud gunshots come from the southeast of our location. The gunshots sounded extremely close by an estimated 30 yards. An unknown male in an apartment window on the east side of Ashland yelled out to myself and Officer Harvey, "You better go get them! I'm recording!" He stated several times that we better go get them. Approximately 2 seconds after him stating this, I looked to the southeast and observed two male blacks walking away from us. This was the same area that I heard the gunshots coming from. The males were later identified as [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] and [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION]. Both males matched the descriptions put out by dispatch. Both subjects began walking southbound away from us into Willye White Park. Myself and Officer Harvey approached tactically with our guns drawn and gave multiple loud, verbal commands for both subjects to stop and get on the ground. Both subjects continued walking away from us. I noticed [CNP REDACTION] look over his left shoulder at me and continue to ignore our verbal commands despite both officers having our guns drawn. Officer Harvey removed his taser from its holster and placed it on the back of [CNP REDACTION] and directed him to the ground. At this time, [CNP REDACTION] had complied and gotten on the ground. [CNP REDACTION] turned fully toward Officer Harvey and continued to refuse verbal commands. Based on the totality of the circumstances on hearing gunshots in close proximity to our location, seeing both subjects leaving the area, the ignoring of multiple verbal commands, and that [CNP REDACTION] matched the description of one of the subjects with a gun, I feared he was turning toward us in an attempt to either batter us or use a weapon against us. Due to this, I unholstered my taser and deployed it, striking [CNP REDACTION] in his lower torso. [CNP REDACTION] went to the ground and eventually turned over onto his stomach. Assisting officers arrived on scene and placed him in handcuffs.17-970728/09/201719/09/2021Virani163Roger's ParkTaser DeploymentRoger’s Park, Chicago37MBParole Violation WarrantRadio assignmentNighttime, street lightingDNADNARedactedDNARafael A.

On 04/30/2019 at 1720hrs, I, Officer Virani #163, responded to a retail theft report at Whole Foods located at 1640 Chicago Ave. Officer Golubski #240 requested an assist unit due to a female offender, now identified as [CNP REDACTION], who was being uncooperative. Once on scene, [CNP REDACTION] was advised that she was under arrest. I took hold of [CNP REDACTION]'s left hand and arm. I immediately felt [CNP REDACTION] tense her left arm and attempt to pull it back in front of her torso. I was unable to get [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm behind her back to secure it with handcuffs. Due to [CNP REDACTION] resisting, I pushed [CNP REDACTION] onto her back while she was still situated in front of the chair. The chair tipped over backwards and the back of [CNP REDACTION]'s head struck a table while being escorted to the ground. Once on the ground, [CNP REDACTION] was on her back. [CNP REDACTION] then kicked me with her foot (unknown leg). [CNP REDACTION]'s foot struck the front of my lower left leg. Officer Golubski and I were able to get [CNP REDACTION] onto her stomach and a handcuff secured on her left wrist. [CNP REDACTION]'s right arm was under [CNP REDACTION]'s torso. [CNP REDACTION] refused to remove her right arm and hand from underneath her torso. I was able to pull [CNP REDACTION]'s right arm from under her torso. [CNP REDACTION] was still holding her cell phone. It was difficult to secure the right handcuff to [CNP REDACTION]'s right wrist with the cellphone in her hand. I used joint manipulation (pain compliance) to [CNP REDACTION]'s left thumb, which caused her to release hold of her cell phone. [CNP REDACTION]'s left hand was then secured. I reviewed my body worn camera prior to authoring this report.19-341530/04/201929/11/2021Virani1631st WardTakedown, Joint Manipulation1st Ward24FWRetail Theft, Resisting Arrest, BatteryRadio AssignmentInterior lightingDNADNADNADNADNADNADNA2702 Virani; GolubskiYesAssist on Reported Retail Theft - UoF occurred due to noncompliant arrestee

On 06/25/2019 at approximately 16:33 hours, I, Officer Antonio #224, was dispatched to Church St/East Prairie Ave to assist Officer Neal #128 on a traffic stop. Upon arrival at the scene, I observed Officer Neal #128 and Officer Appelt #241 standing by with [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] was the owner and driver of a blue Chrysler 200 (IL BE30719). While on the scene, a strong odor of cannabis was detected coming out of [CNP REDACTION]'s car. While Officer Neal was conducting his investigation, I, along with Sergeant Miller #26, Sergeant Wernick #5 and Officer Appelt, stood by with [CNP REDACTION]. During out standby with [CNP REDACTION], he threw his beverage at Sergeant Miller that he was holding in his right hand and immediately ran east on Church St. I, along with other assisting officers immediately ran after [CNP REDACTION]. I gave several loud verbal commands to [CNP REDACTION] to stop as he fled. [CNP REDACTION] refused and continued running east through the parking lot of 3407 Church St. White eventually ran toward a fence at the southeast side of the establishment parking lot and was cornered. While at the fence, I observed [CNP REDACTION] throw something later determined to be a clear bag of suspected cannabis over the fence. [CNP REDACTION] then turned and was facing me. I was not sure if [CNP REDACTION] had any weapons at this time. I immediately told [CNP REDACTION] to get down on the ground. [CNP REDACTION] was reluctant and did not immediately comply. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s right hand, and along with the assistance of detective Rosenbaum #161 and Sgt Wernick, we took [CNP REDACTION] to the ground. [CNP REDACTION] was taken down with an empty hand takedown, in that I took hold of his right and hand guided him to the ground. It should be noted that my BWC (Body camera) was viewed before writing this report. I have nothing further at this time.19-540606/25/1928/11/2021Antonio224SkokieOpen Empty Hand Take DownSkokie22MBPossession of Cannabis, PCS (Possession of a Controlled Substance), Delivery of Cannabis by Ofc.

On 8/7/16 at 0325 hrs. Ofc. Robbins and I, Ofc. Conley, responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a disturbance investigation. A refused citizen advised that there was a group of people out front and they were fighting. I attempted to interview [CNP REDACTION] while in front of the above location and [CNP REDACTION] was extremely irate and agitated. I advised [CNP REDACTION] to calm down and advised him that I needed to check his person for weapons. [CNP REDACTION] then began to yell obscenities out loud and refused to stop yelling. Once Ofc. Rosenbaum arrived on scene, I attempted to pat [CNP REDACTION] down again and grabbed his pants to gain control of him. Once I grabbed [CNP REDACTION], he advised that I needed to stop pulling on him and started clenching and unclenching his fist. [CNP REDACTION] then raised his right fist above his head and slammed it into vehicle #48, causing a dent to the front left side of it. At that time, I attempted to take [CNP REDACTION] into custody and grabbed his left arm. [CNP REDACTION] and tensed up and pulled away from me. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s body around the chest area, and performed a control takedown. [CNP REDACTION] was then rolled onto his stomach and had his right side of his face on the ground. [CNP REDACTION] was ordered to place his hands behind his back, but refused to do so and scratched his face during the struggle before being taken into custody. Nothing further at this time.16-227818/7/1602/10/2021Conley2144th WardTakedown8th Ward17MRedactedCriminal Damage to Government Supported PropertyOn-ViewDark, lightedN/AN/ARedactedN/AAnthony MP StrachanDuring a controlled takedown while attempting to take Strachen into custodyRedacted303Conley; Robbins; RosenbaumNoReport of disturbance (fight) - unclear if person Officer used force on was part of the disturbance
On 2/26/18 at approximately 1816 hours, I, Detective Holliman *150 and partner Detective Rosenbaum *161, curbed a gray colored KIA bearing Illinois license plate [EPD REDACTION] at [CNP REDACTION] for a traffic violation. Upon making contact with the driver, identified as [CNP REDACTION], who I knew to have an active warrant, he was asked to exit the vehicle. Upon [CNP REDACTION] exiting the vehicle, he was asked to place his hands behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] did not comply. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm to gain control of it and to place him in handcuffs. [CNP REDACTION] immediately locked his arms and refused to place his hands behind his back. As I attempted to place [CNP REDACTION]'s hands behind his back, I gave him a verbal command to not fight. I was then able to place one handcuff on [CNP REDACTION]'s left wrist, where he then began to actively resist by flailing his arms, spinning his body and snatching his right hand away from Detective Rosenbaum. While [CNP REDACTION] was actively resisting, I continued to give him loud verbal commands to stop resisting and to place his hands behind his back. While [CNP REDACTION] was attempting to defeat the arrest I attempted an arm bar take down, while still maintaining control of the handcuff, which was un-successful. [CNP REDACTION] then momentarily stopped actively resisting, but still refusing to place his hands behind his back he was instructed to go down to the ground, he did not comply. [CNP REDACTION] then began to actively resist again by attempting to turn his body, flail his arms and snatching away from Detective Rosenbaum and I. I continued to give [CNP REDACTION] loud verbal commands to stop resisting and I advised him if he did not comply he would be tasered. [CNP REDACTION] continued to actively resist until he was tasered by Detective Rosenbaum. Upon completion of the electrical cycle, [CNP REDACTION] voluntarily placed his hands behind his back, where I was able to place the second handcuff on [CNP REDACTION]'s right wrist.

In summary, but not verbatim, on 06-13-16 at approximately 0039 hours, I, Ofc Kane #209 and my partner Ofc Rosenbaum #161 were dispatched to [CNP REDACTION] for a domestic disturbance involving an in-progress criminal damage to vehicle. Upon arrival, my partner and I observed the suspect, later identified as [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] striking the front passenger side window of a black in color Ford Explorer with closed fists (vehicle bearing IL registration: [EPD REDACTION]. My partner and I immediately exited our vehicle and gave loud and clear verbal commands to [CNP REDACTION] to stop hitting the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] turned towards us, raised both of her middle fingers, yelled "fuck you" and began to walk away. My partner and I continued to give loud and clear verbal commands for her to stop walking away. I then observed a subject on the porch of [CNP REDACTION], later identified as her brother, [CNP REDACTION], point at [CNP REDACTION], and state "please stop her." [CNP REDACTION] subsequently refused to listen to all of our commands, even after I told her she was going to be detained for a criminal damage to vehicle investigation. [CNP REDACTION] kept walking away, at which point I grabbed her right arm, in which she immediately swung both arms aggressively away from me, resisting my arrest. I then conducted a double-leg take down on [CNP REDACTION] , bringing her to the ground (grass), subsequently giving my partner and me a better position for an arrest technique. [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist, by stiffening her arms and aggressively rolling her body side to side. I then conducted an empty hand control tactic with joint manipulation to place her arms in a position, where I could safely and securely handcuff [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] did not appear to have any visible injuries and refused all medical attention. Jessica was transported by my partner and I to the Evanston Police Department for processing.16-1621506/13/1605/10/2021Kane2095th WardTake down5th Ward26FBResisting a Police Officer - 720 ALCS 5/31-1(a) - Class A Misd. -- 2 countsDomestic Disturbance & Criminal Damage -- Dispatched Service CallDark with streets lightsNoneN/AN/AN/AN/AN/AN/A1002Kane; RosenbaumNobrother's name is not redactedRadio response to Criminal Damage to property (Sister striking brother's car with fist)
I, Officer Neal was attempting to stop a known convicted felon, [CNP REDACTION], for an Evanston Felony Warrant and a Cook County probation violation warrant. I observed [CNP REDACTION] as the driver of a vehicle that was stopped at [CNP REDACTION] in Skokie. I approached from the passenger side and shined my flashlight into the vehicle and the occupants exited. I made eye contact with [CNP REDACTION] as he exited the vehicle. I gave verbal commands to [CNP REDACTION] to stop. [CNP REDACTION] began to walk away and I told him "don't run." [CNP REDACTION] began running and I proceeded chasing him on foot. I gave verbal commands to stop but he did not. [CNP REDACTION] jumped over a tall black fence I was unable to jump over. As [CNP REDACTION] jumped over the fence, [CNP REDACTION] caused the fence gate to swing open. [CNP REDACTION] continued to run. Considering the subject was actively disobeying, escaping a lawful felony arrest, and a potential to cause injury to officers or himself by fleeing, I considered using my taser. [CNP REDACTION] was running toward another fence. I shouted verbal commands for him to stop or he would be tased and he continued running. I feared the risk of injury to an officer or Peart was significant if he continued to flee and jump over the next fence. The subject had approximately 15-20 feet in front of me and had a clear path to flee. Due to the low light situation, I had limited visibility which increased the possibility for hazard. At this time, seeing that the subject was running in a soft grassy area, I deployed my Taser aiming for the preferred target area the back of the subject. After deploying, the subject fell down in the grass and yelled. [CNP REDACTION] was handcuffed by Det. Rosenbaum and I.18-9742illegible11/12/2021Neal128SkokieTaser8th Ward25MBDelivery of Cannabis, Arrest and probation violation warrantOn-ViewNight Timeleft emptyleft emptyRedactedleft emptyAndre PeartTaser DeploymentRedactedillegible02 Neal; RosenbaumNoStreet Stop - led to foot chase
In summary unless otherwise stated, on 8/19/18 at approximately 1824 hours, during a street stop on the [CNP REDACTION] I, Detective Pogorzelski #255 made contact with [CNP REDACTION] EPD REDACTION] whom I knew was wanted by Detective Hick for unlawful use of credit card (case number: [CNP REDACTION]). [CNP REDACTION] looked in my direction and began running northbound [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] briefly stopped running in front of[CNP REDACTION] at which point he looked in my direction and raised a glass bottle putting me in fear of receiving a batter from the apparent weapon in his left hand. I had prior knowledge that [CNP REDACTION] resists arrest and is combative with police. I gave [CNP REDACTION] verbal orders to get on the ground or he would be tased. [CNP REDACTION] refused to comply with my verbal commands and turned to begin running again southbound in front of [CNP REDACTION], at which time I activated the power on my department issued Taser and deployed it accordance with departmental guidelines and training. The Taser deployment was successful. I observed that the Taser probes in [CNP REDACTION]'s lower back and right side of his buttocks. [CNP REDACTION] fell to the ground on the glass beer bottle that was in his hand, which broke as he fell to the ground. Detective Rosenbaum was able to place Hatfield in handcuffs (checked for proper fit). [CNP REDACTION] was advised that he was under arrest for a warrant and for an unlawful use of credit card investigation. The entirety of the incident was captured on my body worn camera.

In summary unless otherwise stated, on 06/17/16 at approximately 2317 hrs., during a traffic stop at [CNP REDACTION] I, Ofc. Rosenbaum #161 ordered [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] seated in the front passenger seat, to step out of the vehicle. When [CNP REDACTION] stepped out of the car, he took several steps back from the doorway of the vehicle. I told him to come to the rear of the car so I could pat him down, and he began to comply. [CNP REDACTION] took several steps towards the rear of the car, and then fled westbound on foot, then northbound through the west alley of Dodge. As he ran, I observed [CNP REDACTION] holding his waistband with his right hand. Fearing that [CNP REDACTION] was armed and concealing a weapon, I gave a loud verbal command to [CNP REDACTION] that I would deploy my Taser against him if he didn't stop. Price continued to run, and continued to hold his waistband. I then deployed my Taser for a full 5 second cycle into [CNP REDACTION]upper back. [CNP REDACTION] continued to run for several more feet, but stumbled, and fell in the rear driveway area of [CNP REDACTION], sliding behind a parked car. As I came around the side of the vehicle, I observed [CNP REDACTION] produce what appeared to be a handgun from his waistband area. I dropped my taser to the ground and drew my service weapon and gave [CNP REDACTION] approximately 3 verbal commands to "drop the gun." I saw [CNP REDACTION] make a throwing motion with his left hand, and heard the sound consistent with a gun striking and sliding along the pavement. [CNP REDACTION] then got up, and ran several more feet eastbound through the back yard of [CNP REDACTION], and tripped and fell to the ground again. We were then able to place [CNP REDACTION] in handcuffs (double locked, checked for fit) without further incident.

In summary unless otherwise stated, on 03/15/17 at approximately 1845 hrs, I, Ofc. Rosenbam #161 and was assigned as backup for a traffic stop at [CNP REDACTION]. I assisted Officer Neal in taking [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] into custody after he was found to have a large plastic baggie containing suspect cannabis concealed within his pants. [CNP REDACTION]'s cell phone was located during the search. [CNP REDACTION] asked to have the phone in his pocket so it could be brought with him to the station. Myself, and Officer Pogorzelski led [CNP REDACTION] back to our squad car. While I attempted to gather further information from Officer Neal, Officer Pogorzelski informed me that [CNP REDACTION] was attempting to make a phone call. Based on what I could hear from the rear of the vehicle, it sounded as if [CNP REDACTION] was attempting to summon unknown individuals to the scene of the stop. From training and experience, I knew that [CNP REDACTION]'s actions posed an immediate risk to officer safety, as additional, possible hostile parties, could result in an escalation of the situation. As I got closer to the rear of the car, I heard [CNP REDACTION] say "Get here quick!" I entered the rear of the vehicle to retrieve the phone from [CNP REDACTION] . I gave [CNP REDACTION] approximately 3 verbal commands to give me the phone. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s hands to retrieve the phone. [CNP REDACTION] began thrashing around, and I placed my knee on his thigh to keep him in place. [CNP REDACTION] continued to thrash around, and being verbally abusive to officers. While within several inches of [CNP REDACTION]'s face, [CNP REDACTION] yelled "Hit me, I dare you, I'll sue the shit out of you bitch." While doing so, [CNP REDACTION] spat in my face, causing spittle to strike the area around my eyes, nost, and mouth. Officer Pogorzelski retrieved the phone, and we returned to the front of our squad. I observed several small cuts to my fingers actively bleeding. I then heard [CNP REDACTION] kicking the rear doors and the partition. I returned to the rear of the squad and opened the door to stop [CNP REDACTION] from causing possible damage to the vehicle. I advised [CNP REDACTION] to stop kicking the doors, and attempted to shut the door. [CNP REDACTION] placed his shoe in the door to prevent it from closing. I attempted to shut the door again, and did so successfully. [CNP REDACTION] declined offers for medical attention. Officer Pogorzelski later informed me that while I was attempting to grab the cell phone, she observed [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION].

In summary, on 01/22/18 at approximately 1646 hours I, Detective Rosenbaum #161 was responding to an armed robbery that occurred at [CNP REDACTION]. The offender was initially described as an older male/black with a dark coat and blue jeans who fled southbound from the location. The subject was observed by the victim to have a revolver tucked in his waistband. I attempted to affect a street stop on an individual matching that description, now known to be [EPD REDACTION] in front of [CNP REDACTION]. I gave [EPD REDACTION] verbal commands to put his hands up and turn around, which he complied with. Due to caller's description of an armed offender, I had my service weapon drawn in the sul position. Upon approaching [EPD REDACTION], I holstered my weapon and took control of his right arm using empty hand joint manipulation techniques. I immediately informed [EPD REDACTION] of the reason for the stop. [EPD REDACTION] became argumentative, stating we should check the library when I asked him if he had a firearm in his possession. While assist officers attempted to conduct a pat-down for weapons, [EPD REDACTION] became increasingly agitated, thrashing his body side to side and attempting to turn towards officers. Fearing that [EPD REDACTION] was attempting to access a concealed weapon, I pulled [EPD REDACTION] arm behind his body. I gave [EPD REDACTION] verbal commands to stop resisting but [EPD REDACTION] continued to pull away from me, and thrash his body from side to side. I began handcuffing [EPD REDACTION] but [EPD REDACTION] pulled away from me and turned towards me in an attempt to defeat my efforts. I pushed [EPD REDACTION] towards the side of 860 Chicago, and maneuvered [EPD REDACTION] arm behind his back in order to complete handcuffing [EPD REDACTION]. While being handcuffed, [EPD REDACTION] complained of pain to his wrists and arms. After a show-up was conducted with the victim, it was determined that [EPD REDACTION] was not the offender from the armed robbery. [EPD REDACTION] was subsequently released from handcuffs. [EPD REDACTION] did not request medical assistance for the alleged wrist and arm pain at the scene of the stop. It should be noted that body worn camera footage was reviewed prior to authoring this report. Nothing further at this time.18-6031/22/1826/11/2021Rosenbaum1613rd WardHandcuffing(Evanston) RedactedRedactedMBRedactedRadio assignment, backup officerLightN/AN/ARedactedN/ARedactedRedactedRedacted303 Rosenbaum; "assist officers"YesReport of Armed Robbery
In summary unless otherwise stated, on 02/26/18 at approximately 1816 hrs., during a traffic stop at [CNP REDACTION] I, Det. Rosenbaum #161 made contact with [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION], whom I knew had an active warrant for his arrest. I opened the driver's side door and gave [CNP REDACTION] verbal commands to turn off the vehicle step out of the car. [CNP REDACTION] complied, and I took control of his right arm and Det. Holliman #150 grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm. [CNP REDACTION] asked why he was being asked out of the vehicle and I told him he had a warrant. [CNP REDACTION] was told to put his hands behind his back, and which point he began twisting from side to side and pulling his hands away from us, ignoring the commands from my partner and I. Det. Holliman was able to apply one handcuff and ordered [CNP REDACTION] to get on the ground, and that he would be tased if he continued to resist, which [CNP REDACTION] ignored. [CNP REDACTION] continued to tense his arms and thrash from side to side, actively resisting our efforts to place him under arrest. My partner and I continued to try to handcuff [CNP REDACTION] through empty hand joint manipulation techniques which proved ineffective. I drew my taser and warned [CNP REDACTION] that he would be tased. Boyd continued to ignore verbal commands to stop resisting and to lie on the ground. After multiple warnings I deployed my taser into [CNP REDACTION]'s mid-back for a full 5 second cycle. [CNP REDACTION] then complied with our commands to roll over and was handcuffed (double locked, checked for fit). It should be noted that while attempting to take [CNP REDACTION] into custody, my body worn camera's power switch was inadvertently knocked into the off position for several seconds. The entirety of the incident was captured on both my partner's BWC and the in-car camera.

Rosenbaum #161 attempted to place a wanted subject, [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] under arrest. I knew [CNP REDACTION] to have multiple wants and warrants for burglary, crinimal trespass, and possession of stolen property. I also knew [CNP REDACTION] to have an extensive criminal history, including crimes of violence (assaulting and obstructing). It should be noted that I was wearing plain clothes and an exterior ballistic vest carrier with police identifiers on both the front and the rear. While traveling north in the 600 block of Dodge, I activated my unmarked police vehicle's emergency equipment and pulled alongside [CNP REDACTION]. My partner and I had both identified our office and Det. Popp gave [CNP REDACTION] repeated verbal commands to stop. [CNP REDACTION] disregarded said commands, stated he would not stop, and continued to ride northbound. [CNP REDACTION] then fled our attempt to stop him, recklessly weaving through heavy vehicle traffic on Dodge, forcing vehicles to slam on their brakes and swerve in order to avoid striking him. After pursuing [CNP REDACTION] through several side streets and aleys in the 600/700 blocks of Dodge and 700 block of Brown, I located [CNP REDACTION] exiting the back yard at [CNP REDACTION]. Based on [CNP REDACTION]'s continued reckless actions, I feared that not taking him into custody immediately would risk bodily harm occurring to [CNP REDACTION] , pursuing officers, and/or citizens in the area. I drew my Taser, I gave [CNP REDACTION] three verbal commands to "get off the bike," and advised him he was under arrest. [CNP REDACTION] disregarded all commands, and I attempted to grab [CNP REDACTION] by the arm to place him into custody. [CNP REDACTION] pulled away from me and continued to attempt to flee. I then used an open hand push to take [CNP REDACTION] off his bicycle. [CNP REDACTION] fell into a nearby bush, where I attempted to gain physical control from the "mount" position until assisting officers arrived. During this time, [CNP REDACTION] attempted to slap the Taser out of my hand. I again advised [CNP REDACTION] he was under arrest, and gave him four verbal commands to "stop fighting." I then warned [CNP REDACTION] that I would deploy OC against him if he countinued to fight. Upon the arrival of Dets. Pogorzelski #255 and Popp #116, I attempted to place [CNP REDACTION] on his stomach for handcuffing. [CNP REDACTION] continued to tense his muscles, pull away from detectives, and resist efforts to be turned over and placed in handcuffs. I then deployed an approximately two second burst of OC spray at [CNP REDACTION]'s face. The application of OC spray was somewhat effective, and myself and Det. Popp were able to maneuver [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm behind his back. However, DAVIS continued to tense his right arm and resist Det. Pogorzelski's efforts. I then deployed another approximately two second burst of OC spray to the right side of [CNP REDACTION]'s face. [CNP REDACTION] was then successfully handcuffed and placed into custody. BWC and dashcam was reviewed prior to authoring this report.

On 8/25/2019 at approximately 13:45 Hours I Detective Sosa #103 responded to the area of [CNP REDACTION] for a battery in progress. Communications advised that the male subject was battering a female subject. Upon arrival I heard Officer Ostap over the radio advise responding units the subject [CNP REDACTION] was going to be combative and he was leaving the area on foot northbound on Darrow towards Lake Street. I observed [CNP REDACTION] walking away westbound from the officers in the middle of Lake Street towards Dodge. Upon my approach Officer Nelson was ordering [CNP REDACTION] to the ground. I observed delayed compliance from [CNP REDACTION]. I handcuffed [CNP REDACTION]’s right wrist and Officer Serviss Handcuffed the left wrist. There were only simple handcuffing techniques used to apply the handcuffs. Simple empty hand control methods were used to subdue [CNP REDACTION] while he was being uncooperative with police and paramedics. I did not accompany officers and [CNP REDACTION] to the hospital for the psychological evaluation. See additional supplements and field general for further details. I reviewed my body camera footage prior to authoring this report.19-763809/01/1913/11/2021Carrasco1522nd WardWrist lock5th Ward28MBDNARadio AssignmentLightNoneDNADNADNADNADNADNA1474 Sosa; Ostap; Nelson; ServissYesReport of battery - Involuntary Committal - Wrist Locks
On 06-01-2018 at approximately 1043 I, Detective C. Just *190, heard dispatch radio that a male subject, possibly a juvenile, had run into the road at Emerson and Hartrey and been struck by a vehicle. I went to the area and located an injured adult male black sitting on the curb speaking with Evanston Officers. I made contact with a woman who identified herself as a witness who stated she was driving Westbound on Emerson when she saw the adult male roll from a vehicle that was proceeding Eastbound on Emerson. The witness, [EPD REDACTION], told me that she saw the man's head hit the ground in the middle of the roadway. While I was speaking further with [EPD REDACTION] I saw the man, later identified as [EPD REDACTION] stand up and begin to stumble away on foot [EPD REDACTION] ran West into the road, away from Officers requesting that he remain on scene for medical attention. [EPD REDACTION] continued running West in the roadway, then suddenly approach the driver's side door of a light colored sedan that was stopped in traffic due to the incident. I witnessed [EPD REDACTION] pull back on the driver's side door handle to enter the occupied vehicle, however the door did not open and [EPD REDACTION] continued to run West in the middle of the roadway. Due to the increased public safety risk of [EPD REDACTION] attempting to enter an occupied vehicle, I pursued [EPD REDACTION] on foot and caught up to him in front of [CNP REDACTION]. I drew my department issued Electronic Control Weapon (Taser) and identified myself as an Evanston Police Officer. I gave several loud, clear directions to [EPD REDACTION] to get on the ground. [EPD REDACTION] paused for several seconds, then lowered himself onto the ground but rolled his body away from Officers. I directed [EPD REDACTION] to lay face down but he refused. Ofc. Sosa was able to secure one handcuff on [EPD REDACTION] left arm before [EPD REDACTION] swung his right arm toward me. [EPD REDACTION] then used his right arm to push away from being secured and then kicked his legs out. I loudly told [EPD REDACTION] to stop resisting otherwise he would be tased. [EPD REDACTION] continued to swing his body away from Ofc. Sosa and he refused directions to comply. Due to [EPD REDACTION] continued physical resistance, I deployed my Taser and made contact with [EPD REDACTION] The Taser appeared to have little effect as a result of the deployment and he continued to pull away from Officers. [EPD REDACTION] rolled his body away from Officers and rose to his knees. [EPD REDACTION] maintained his refusal to comply and swung his arms from Officers. In yet another effort to secure [EPD REDACTION] I deployed my Taser again (drive stun), and [EPD REDACTION] rolled onto his stomach. Multiple Officers were now on scene to assist in placing [EPD REDACTION] arms behind his back to secure him in handcuffs as he continued to pull his arms from being secured. Once secured in handcuffs, I observed [EPD REDACTION] snap his head toward the leg of Sgt. Bush and bite his pant. [EPD REDACTION] was transported via ambulance to Post 10 for medical treatment. During the struggle to secure [EPD REDACTION], multiple Officers (including Ofc. Sosa) made contact with [EPD REDACTION] blood, including myself. I completed an Injury on Duty Report and a Use of Force Report.18-46586/1/1831/10/2021Just1905th WardTaser Deployment 26P (#25)5th Ward49MBRedactedOn-viewDaylightC.

On 06/27/2019 at appoximately 2318 hours, Officer Niedziela and I, Officer Masucci, responded to [CNP REDACTION] to assist Officer Roden with a disturbance. The nature of the call was later determined to be domestic in nature. Officer Roden met with the victim, [CNP REDACTION], while Officer Sosa, Officer Niedziela, and I met with the suspected offender, [CNP REDACTION]. Officer Roden advised [CNP REDACTION] wanted to sign complaints against Thomas, at which time Officer Sosa, Officer Niedziela, and I approached [CNP REDACTION], directing him to place his hands behind his back and stop moving away from us. As we approached [CNP REDACTION], who was passively resisting by not complying with clear direct orders from police officers and backing away. Officer Sosa approached Thomas by grabbing Thomas’ right arm, Officer Niedziela grabbed onto [CNP REDACTION]’s left hand, and moved [CNP REDACTION] onto the bed. While on the right side of [CNP REDACTION], who was not lying on his stomach, with Officer Sosa positioned on his right shoulder, Officer Niedziela on his left arm, I grabbed [CNP REDACTION]’s right wrist, placing it in a handcuff. I then placed [CNP REDACTION]’s left wrist in the handcuff. The handcuffs were checked for proper fit, double locked and tension checked. [CNP REDACTION] was then escorted outside of the home. While on the walkway in the front yard of the residence, [CNP REDACTION] let his body go limp, falling to the ground. [CNP REDACTION] then shook on the ground, flopping his head in the dirt, kicking his legs, and was spitting. [CNP REDACTION] was still ignoring police commands at this time. An ambulance arrived, and [CNP REDACTION] was moved to a gurney. A spit mask was placed on [CNP REDACTION], due to him spitting and face covered in saliva. [CNP REDACTION] was moving his body aggressively by rocking back and forth with his body weight, almost falling out of the gurney, ignoring directions from police and fire personnel. [CNP REDACTION] was then restrained to the gurney and moved into the ambulance. While in the ambulance, [CNP REDACTION], still wearing his spit mask, spat aggressively (building a large amount of saliva in his mouth, positioning his body towards the paramedic and lunging forward as he spat) at a paramedic. No saliva made contact with the paramedic. While in the ambulance, [CNP REDACTION] advised his wrist hurt, while twisting and contorting his body, handcuffed and strapped to the gurney. I un-handcuffed [CNP REDACTION]’s left wrist, keeping his right wrist handcuffed, then handcuffed [CNP REDACTION] to the gurney. I then checked the handcuff on [CNP REDACTION]’s right wrist, showing him it was loose enough to slide up and down part of his wrist. Once at Post 11, [CNP REDACTION] was seen by Doctor Iglesia. [CNP REDACTION] refused medical treatment and was discharged. After the hospital discharged [CNP REDACTION], [CNP REDACTION] was told he would be transported back to Evanston Police Department. [CNP REDACTION] then refused to listen to officer commands and passively resisted by ignoring officer order and going limp. [CNP REDACTION], fell from the hospital bed, refusing to comply with officers. Sergeant Sullivan arrived on scene to assist. [CNP REDACTION] was assisted out of the hospital via wheelchair. Prior to being placed in our marked squad car, [CNP REDACTION] again began complaining of his wrist. To accommodate [CNP REDACTION], we used two sets of handcuffs to restrain [CNP REDACTION] and then placed him in the rear of our squad car. [CNP REDACTION] was then transported to Evanston Police Department without incident. Once in Evanston Lock Up, [CNP REDACTION] was turned over to Officer Roden and Desk Officer Kollar. This incident is captured on Body Camera.

On 04/19/16 at approximately 23:10 Hours I Officer Sosa#103 responded to the EPD lock-up to assist with an uncooperative subject. While attempting to walk [CNP REDACTION] to his cell he refused several verbal commands issued by Sergeant Hart to keep walking. [CNP REDACTION] bladed his stance towards Sergeant Hart, balled his left hand into a fist and said "what you gonna do about it (racial epithet). I pushed [CNP REDACTION] with two open hands causing him to fall to the ground. I placed my Taser on his back and advised him to place his hands behind his back or he would be Tased. [CNP REDACTION] was handcuffed and placed into his cell without further incident.

On 09/03 at approximately 18:31 Hours I Officer Sosa #103 responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a domestic battery in progress Upon arrival I met with [CNP REDACTION] in the entry way of the kitchen and attempted to interview him in Spanish. I observed him to have a heavy odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his exhaled breath, slurred speech and blood shot eyes. I also observed him to be breathing heavy and appeared to have a grimace and agitated. I informed him that I was advised he was involved in a disturbance. I request [CNP REDACTION] to step into the living room away from the kitchen and take his hands out of his pants that he was holding. I wanted to conduct a pat down of [CNP REDACTION] and exit the close quarters of the kitchen area and distance myself from possible weapons. [CNP REDACTION] advised that he did not have to do anything and began to walk away from me back into the kitchen. I immediately grabbed his left arm in an attempt to walk him into the living room. [CNP REDACTION] pulled his arm away and walked into the kitchen. Do to the disobedience, close proximity of possible weapons, enclosed space, I pushed him towards the wall and advised him he was under arrest. [CNP REDACTION] continued to pull away from me. I knocked [CNP REDACTION] to the ground and delivered approximately three open hand strikes to the side of [CNP REDACTION]'s head and repeated verbal commands in an effort to gain compliance and subdue [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] continued to actively resist my efforts to place his behind his hands behind his back by pulling away. Officer Basner arrived on the scene and assisted handcuffing [CNP REDACTION] without further incident.16-258059/10/1603/12/2021Sosa1035th WardOpen hand strike/takedown5th Ward41MWDomestic BatteryRadioInterior LightingDNADNARedactedDNAGerardo Zamudio, Sr.RedactedRedacted272Sosa; BasnerNoDomestic Battery Investigation
On 06/16/17 at approximately 20:16 Hours I responded to the area of [CNP REDACTION] for a robbery in progress. I stopped observed a subject, [CNP REDACTION] matching the description in front of [CNP REDACTION]. I gave clear loud verbal commands for the subject to get on the ground. I observed the subject reach into his pockets at which time I ordered him not to reach into his pockets and get on the ground. The subject removed his hands from his pockets but continued to refuse to get on the ground. Due to the nature of the call, the subject matching the description of the offender, the refusal to comply with clear verbal commands I felt my safety was at risk. I executed a takedown of the subject and placed him into handcuffs. The subject, [CNP REDACTION] was searched and I recovered a knife from his left waistband. [CNP REDACTION] was checked with negative results for warrants.

On 09/08/2017 at approximately 22:20 Hours I Officer Sosa #103 responded to [CNP REDACTION] for active criminal damage to property. Upon arrival I observed a male white subject wearing a dark baseball hat and white shirt walking down the rear stairs of [CNP REDACTION]. The caller identified the subject as the offender, [CNP REDACTION]. I issued verbal commands for [CNP REDACTION] to stop walking away and come to my vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] refused to comply to my clear verbal commands to come to my vehicle approximately 4 times. I warned the subject that I would be forced to escalate to using force. I observed the subject to have blood shot watery eyes, slurred speech and a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on his person. It appeared that the subject had a grimace on his face and kept placing his hands behind his back. Due to the nature of the call, being unable to see the subjects hands were free of weapons, and refusing to comply with my commands I knocked the subject to the ground with an open hand shove causing him to fall back to the ground.

On 10/24/2018 at approximately 1523 Hours I Officer Sosa #103 responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a disturbance call. While on the scene I learned that [CNP REDACTION] was on scene and possibly wanted for a previous battery that occured on 10/17/2018. I attempted to place [CNP REDACTION] into handcuffs while I investigated the matter futher. [CNP REDACTION] refused to comply after being issued approximately 6 verbal commands to sit down. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION] by his right arm which is when he began to comply. I then issued [CNP REDACTION] approximately 2 commands for him to place his hands behind his back at which time he refused and walked away. I walked behind him and grabbed him by his coat and led him to a seated position on the gorund. I issued approximately 4 more commands for him to place his hands behind his back and stop moving forward. [CNP REDACTION] refused to comply and attempted to pull away in order to resist my efforts to handcuff him. I attempted to keep him in a seated position while I attempted to manipulate his arms behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] was able to resist my efforts and shift his weight forward onto his left shoulder and side. I issued several more commands for him to stop moving forward. I continued to manupulate his right arm behind his back while he continued to pull his arm forward and shift his body forward which is when his position on the ground caused him to rub his face on the ground. Johnson sustained an abrasion on the left side of his face. I was finally able to handcuff [CNP REDACTION] and walk him over to Offcer Niedziela's #118 squad car and seatbelt him in for transport to the station for an aggravated bettery investigation and resisting.18-9365illegible20/11/2021Sosa1032nd WardJoint Manipulation2nd Ward35MBResistingRadioDay lightDNADNADNADNAMichael L.

On the above mentioned date time and location I Officer Sosa was an assist officer for a well-being check. While attempting to interview the subject of the of the(sic) well-being check, [CNP REDACTION] closed the distance to me and was in less than an arm’s length away, clenched his hands into fists, bladed his stance and grimaced as he said “Man, I’m telling you, I have a good left and a good right”. Due to the delayed compliance to previous commands, apparent intoxication and observed aggressive behavior I felt I would be battered if I did not act immediately. I delivered and empty open hand push to the left side of [CNP REDACTION]’s face. Causing him to fall to the floor. Pack and I gave several verbal commands for him to put his hands behind his back but he refused to comply. Officer pack and I used simple joint manipulation to handcuff [CNP REDACTION].

In summary: On August 24, 2019 at approximately 1345 hours I Officer Serviss #206/1300 responded to the area of [CNP REDACTION] for a battery in progress. While enroute I heard Officer Ostap advise via radio that the offender [CNP REDACTION] was going to be combative and that he was walking away from the area on Lake St. I arrived and observed [CNP REDACTION] walking westbound on Lake St. with Ofc. Nelson giving him verbal commands to stop. I observed that [CNP REDACTION] was slow to comply with orders being given by Ofc. Nelson. Detective Sosa and I approached [CNP REDACTION] who at the time was on his knees but still verbally resistant. Detective Sosa handcuffed [CNP REDACTION]'s left wrist and I handcuffed his right wrist (2 sets of handcuffs) and the handcuffs were joined. [CNP REDACTION] was searched on the ground and then assisted to a sitting position and then a standing position by assisting officers. [CNP REDACTION] continued to be verbally combative and on numerous occasions attempted to pull away from officers and turn his body. [CNP REDACTION] refused to be placed into a squad car and simple wrist locks were used in an effort to stop his aggressive movements. While waiting for Evanston Fire Department paramedics [CNP REDACTION] continued to hold his body in a rigid state pushing back against officers in an attempt to flee.

I chased [CNP REDACTION] on foot suspecting he was carrying a handgun. [CNP REDACTION] fell in the icy alley after dropping a handgun and I held him at gunpoint until I observed Sgt. Kohl and Officer Wozniak approaching my location on foot. As soon as Officer Wozniak got to me we both placed [CNP REDACTION] in handcuffs while Sgt. Kohl went to secure the handgun.

The passenger of a motor vehicle was attempting to walk away from a traffic stop in an area of a recent shooting, after I lawfully ordered him to stop. I believed the subject could be armed due to his actions, and after asking the subject if he had a weapon, he stated “yeah, I got a weapon on me.” The subject refused multiple lawful commands to place his hands behind his back, stiffened his arms, appeared to reach towards his waist, attempted to pull away and disregarded my lawful orders. At that point, I grabbed [the victimarm and took him to the ground. Detective Kleinpaste and I then were able to place Wade into handcuffs after more verbal commands were given. The vehicle and occupants were subsequently secured, and I later learned [the victim] was seventeen years old. [CNP REDACTION] did not appear to be injured nor did he complain of any pain or injuries. [CNP REDACTION] was verbally non-compliant with questions, and was eventually transported to the station by Officers Gustafson and Nawotka.19-469106/06/1929/11/2021A.Pack1765th WardTake down17MRedactedNo seatbelt, Disobedience to PoliceOn-viewDaylightN/AN/AN/AN/AN/AN/AN/A1504 A.Pack; Kleinpaste; Gustafson; NawotkaNoTraffic Stop - UoF occurs as they attempt to handcuff arrestee
On 06/25/2019 at approximately 16:33 hours, I, Officer Antonio #224, was dispatched to Church St/East Prairie Ave to assist Officer Neal #128 on a traffic stop. Upon arrival at the scene, I observed Officer Neal #128 and Officer Appelt #241 standing by with [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] was the owner and driver of a blue Chrysler 200 (IL BE30719). While on the scene, a strong odor of cannabis was detected coming out of [CNP REDACTION]'s car. While Officer Neal was conducting his investigation, I, along with Sergeant Miller #26, Sergeant Wernick #5 and Officer Appelt, stood by with [CNP REDACTION]. During out standby with [CNP REDACTION], he threw his beverage at Sergeant Miller that he was holding in his right hand and immediately ran east on Church St. I, along with other assisting officers immediately ran after [CNP REDACTION]. I gave several loud verbal commands to [CNP REDACTION] to stop as he fled. [CNP REDACTION] refused and continued running east through the parking lot of 3407 Church St. White eventually ran toward a fence at the southeast side of the establishment parking lot and was cornered. While at the fence, I observed [CNP REDACTION] throw something later determined to be a clear bag of suspected cannabis over the fence. [CNP REDACTION] then turned and was facing me. I was not sure if [CNP REDACTION] had any weapons at this time. I immediately told [CNP REDACTION] to get down on the ground. [CNP REDACTION] was reluctant and did not immediately comply. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s right hand, and along with the assistance of detective Rosenbaum #161 and Sgt Wernick, we took [CNP REDACTION] to the ground. [CNP REDACTION] was taken down with an empty hand takedown, in that I took hold of his right and hand guided him to the ground. It should be noted that my BWC (Body camera) was viewed before writing this report. I have nothing further at this time.19-540606/25/1928/11/2021Antonio224SkokieOpen Empty Hand Take Down22MBPossession of Cannabis, PCS (Possession of a Controlled Substance), Delivery of Cannabis by Ofc.

On 07/18/2019 at approximately 12:36 hours, while off duty I, Officer Antonio #224, was at 8500 W. Golf Rd in Niles IL (Walmart) Shopping when I observed a disturbance inside the store. The disturbance was with a male later identified as [CNP REDACTION] and several Walmart shoppers and employees. At a point during the disturbance, [EPD REDACTION] made several threats to fight a shopper. During the argument with an unidentified male who attempted to intervene before I did, [CNP REDACTION] said to the unknown male, “you want to take it outside and fight?” At this point, I intervened by announcing my office (EPD) and showing [CNP REDACTION] my Evanston Police ID card. [CNP REDACTION] continued to argue and wanted to fight with shoppers. [CNP REDACTION] kept shouting and swearing at shoppers he was arguing with. In fear of him causing a battery toward shopper(s) and me, I advised Sapienza several times to walk away. Sapienza continued to argue and cause a disturbance. During the encounter with [CNP REDACTION], he continued to make threats to batter shoppers during the disturbance. At a point during the disturbance, Sapienza turned toward and employee who was stocking shelves in an aisle nearby and came in close proximity of the employee. [CNP REDACTION] was still yelling at shoppers at this time. At this point in fear of [CNP REDACTION] battering the employee in the aisle, I took hold of [CNP REDACTION]'s right wrist. While briefly holding his right wrist in my right hand, [CNP REDACTION] turned himself around toward a shelf in the store. I did push or pull [CNP REDACTION] in any direction. I then released [CNP REDACTION]'s wrist once he stopped yelling threats toward shoppers and employees. I only took control of [CNP REDACTION]'s wrist for approximately 3 seconds before releasing it. Several witnesses observed the incident. I have nothing further at this time.19-645507/25/1908/11/2021Antonio224NilesOpen Empty Hand63MRedactedN/AOn ViewDaylightN/AN/AUnknown if he got medical treatmentN/ADominic SapienzaOpen Empty Hand ControlN/A2501 AntonioN/A (Off-duty)Disturbance in Store while Off-Duty - UoF occurred to make shopper calm down
In summary but not verbatim, on 3/27/16 at approximately 20:35hrs, Officer Golubski #240 and I Officer N. Basner #135 made contact with suspect [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION]. I told [CNP REDACTION] he was under arrest for assault. I grabbed for [CNP REDACTION]'s right arm and he resisted by grabbing onto the door frame nearest him. I again told [CNP REDACTION] not to resist arrest and to place his hand behind his back. I unholstered my tazer and targeted [CNP REDACTION]'s stomach and told him that he would be tazed if he continued to resist my efforts of arrest. Based on Officer Golubski's position and for her safety, I felt it was safer to reholster the tazer and again attempt empty hand control tactics to arrest [CNP REDACTION]. I then grabbed the hood on [CNP REDACTION]'s sweater and pulled it over his head and downward in an attempt to place him on the ground. I pulled [CNP REDACTION] out of the doorway but [CNP REDACTION] defeated my effort to place him on the ground by standing straight up. [CNP REDACTION] was pushing with his legs and still trying to grab for the door frame behind him. I attempted to strike [CNP REDACTION] once by punching him with my right hand. I targeted his left side of his torso. However, as [CNP REDACTION] continued to stand and pull away my right hand made incidental contact with the left side of his head. I then grabbed his right arm with both hands and attempted a leg sweep. This caused [CNP REDACTION] to lean forward but he was still pulling away with his arms to defeat arrest. Assisting officer grabbed his left arm. I then observed [CNP REDACTION] turn towards Officer Golubski #240. Officer Golubski #240 then deployed her tazer against [CNP REDACTION] (See Officer Golubski's reports). [CNP REDACTION] fell to the ground. I was then able to grab [EPD REDACTION]'s left and right hands and place then into handcuffs.

In summary but not verbatim, I Officer N. Basner #135 responded to 1336 Chicago Ave (Bank of America) for a robbery in progress. Upon arrival, I observed a tall heavy set male subject (later identified as [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] wearing a white hat with a white towel draped over his face standing in the vestibule of the bank facing a woman [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] turned around and exited the bank toward police. Due to the nature of the call (Robbery), my firearm was out and pointed at the subject. I was giving [CNP REDACTION] verbal commands to get on the ground and he refused. [CNP REDACTION] slowly walked to a nearby white van and stopped with his hands in his waist. [CNP REDACTION] again was told to get on the ground by which he did not comply. Without instruction, [CNP REDACTION] began walking toward me with his hands free. In fear for my safety and that [CNP REDACTION] would flee, I holstered my pistol and quickly approached [CNP REDACTION]. Also fearing [CNP REDACTION] may be armed, I grabbed him with both hands and delivered a knee strike to quickly apprehend him without delay or fight. I then obtained [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm and knelt on him. I gained control of his left hand and placed him in handcuffs.16-253958/30/1615/12/2021Basner1353rd WardKnee Strike19MBArmed Robbery, UUWArmed Robbery-Radio dispatch for in progress robberyDark with well-lighted parking lotNoneN/ARedactedN/ATrenton S.

In summary on 12/03/2017 at approximately 15:44 hrs, I conducted a domestic battery investigation. During this investigation, I placed the arrestee [CNP REDACTION], under arrest for domestic battery. I verbally ordered [CNP REDACTION] to turn around and place his hands behind him. [CNP REDACTION] complied with my order. I took [CNP REDACTION]'s left hand (using my left hand to hold his) and placed a handcuff on his left wrist using my right hand to apply the handcuff. I then switched to placing the right cuff on his right wrist using my left and right hands. As a matter of course, I quickly placed a finger under each handcuff and push the double lock function on each handcuff to ensure proper fit. [CNP REDACTION] was escorted to my patrol car and seated in the car without any resistance. Once at the police station, the handcuffs were removed from the wrists of [CNP REDACTION]. [EPD REDACTION] I observed no visible injury to his wrists but here were minor skin impressions showing where the handcuffs had been applied.

n Summary: On the above date, time and location I Officer Benoit along with Officer Golubski responded to a complaint of a male subject wandering around the area and who appeared to be smoking cannabis, to conduct a well-being check. Upon arrival I located a subject matching the description walking west approaching Prairie, I pulled my squad car along the side of him and he began running westbound but then stopped at the corner and began speaking to me. While speaking to the subject I observed that he was nervous, speech confused and actions erratic while attempting to conceal an object under his coat or sweatshirt. He then presented a small "Blunt" claiming to be cannabis and admitting to have been smoking it prior to my arrival. We advised the subject, Later identified as [EPD REDACTION] that we noticed him attempting to conceal an object and he began reaching towards that area. I instructed him to raise his hands, which he refused and continued reaching towards the area on his person. I attempted to gain control of his arm and hand, which [EPD REDACTION] snatch his arm away and began backing up. As I attempted to grab [EPD REDACTION] and gain control of his person, [EPD REDACTION] then began flailing his arms and pushing me to avoid being detained and searched. [EPD REDACTION] then escaped my clutch and began running west in the street. I deployed my taser at [EPD REDACTION] to prevent his escape but there was no effect and [EPD REDACTION] continued running west. While following [EPD REDACTION] a citizen [EPD REDACTION] physically blocked [EPD REDACTION] path and corralled him, [EPD REDACTION] again attempted to push past [EPD REDACTION] and eventually stopped running (I instructed him to get on the ground) and kneeled on the ground and was handcuffed, and taken into protective custody. [EPD REDACTION] made no claim of injury as a result of these matters.

In summary: At approximately 1157 hours, I responded to 2301 Howard (Best Buy) for a report of store security fighting with a retail theft offender who was armed with a razor. I was the 3rd unit on scene and as I approached the front of the store, I observed the other units engaged in a physical altercation with a M/A subject (now identified as [CNP REDACTION], DOB: [EPD REDACTION]. Officers M. Buell #223. T. Messing #228 and K. Jacobs #248 were attempting to take [CNP REDACTION] into custody and he was actively resisting by refusing to place his arms behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] was face down with his arms tucked under his body and he was kicking his legs. The officers and [CNP REDACTION] were on the ground inside the vestibule at the outer west door. The officers were using knee strikes and verbal commands attempting to gain control of the subject who was face down and pulling his arms under his body to avoid arrest. I un-holstered my conducted electrical weapon, CEW (Taser). I then aimed it at [CNP REDACTION]'s left rear shoulder and deployed the Taser initiating a 5 second cycle. Both prongs entered [CNP REDACTION]'s body and he stopped resisting and placed his hands behind his back and was handcuffed without further hesitation. EFD was called to the scene to remove the taser prongs an ET Leeson #185 responded to the scene to process and collect the deployed taser cartridge.17-46655/20/1705/11/2021Bernhardt2178th WardTaser Deployment28MARetail theft, Aggravated battery, Resisting a peace officerDispatched retail theft and battery in progress - assist unitDaylightNoneN/ARedactedN/ASang Han KoTaser DeploymentRedacted1004Bernhardt; Buell; Messing; JacobsNoReport of fight and retail theft - fight ongoing on arrival
Offender ([CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION]) was placed into custody for a Failure to Appear Warrant. While placing offender into the back of the a squad car, offender refused to place his leg (right) into the vehicle. I was able to reposition the offender into the squad car--including his legs. As I attempted to close the door (rear passenger), the offender once again kicked out his right leg, thus causing the rear door to slightly come in contact with his right foot.16-244548/22/1612/11/2021Buell2235th WardNone26MBWarrant arrestAssignmentDaylightN/Aleft emptyRedactedN/ACacey WilliamsWilliams put his right foot in the rear passenger door jam when I was closing the door after his ...

On the aforementioned date/time, Ofcs: K. Jacobs, T. Messing and I, Buell, responded to the Best Buy store located at 2301 Howard St, in regards to a subject armed with a razor, fighting a security guard. This is an account of my observations and actions during this incident. Upon arrival, I observed a subject now known to be [CNP REDACTION], being detained by a Best Buy employee near the cash register area (just to the left of the entrance/exit doors) at this location. During this time responding officers went to the area where [CNP REDACTION] and the Best Buy employee were at. At this time [CNP REDACTION] began to struggle with this employee, and appeared to be looking to flee the location. After making this observation, I attempted to detain Ko, and place him under arrest. During this time [CNP REDACTION] struck me with his hands about my upper body (chest) area. [CNP REDACTION] then broke free from our attempted detainment, and began to flee on foot within this location (store). This is when I once again attempted to place [CNP REDACTION] into custody. However [CNP REDACTION] continued to fight and repeatedly attempted to get up off the ground. Due to [CNP REDACTION]'s aggressive behavior (refused to obey our verbal commands to place his hands behind his back, flail his arms, and attempt to resist arrest). I began to administer foot, and knee strikes, along with closed hand strikes to [CNP REDACTION]'s face area. During this time I attempted to once again gain control of [CNP REDACTION]'s arms in an attempt to get him cuffed. [CNP REDACTION] was eventually handcuffed with the assistance of numerous officers.17-46655/20/1705/11/2021Buell2238th WardOC spray, open hand tactics, close hand strikes, knee/foot28MAAggravated Battery, Retail Theft, Resisting and battery to P.O.Radio assignment (Retail theft offender armed with a razor fighting a security guard)lightNoneN/ARedactedN/ASang Han KoTaser deployment, empty hand control tactics, closed hand strikes, foot and knee strikes, and OC spray deploymentRedacted1005Buell; Jacobs; Messing; "numerous.officers"NoReport of fight and retail theft - fight ongoing on arrival
On the 30May2017 at approximately 1655 hours, I (Buell #223/1132), responded to the Jewel-Osco parking lot located at 1128 Chicago Ave, in regards to Ofc: Yates needing assistance with a subject (offender) now identified as [CNP REDACTION] (listed). Upon my arrival, I immediately observed Ofc: Yates, and an unknown citizen subject engaged in a very physical altercation on the ground with [CNP REDACTION], in the no parking/fire lane (zone) near the far north end of the Jewel-Osco parking lot. After exiting my marked squad vehicle (#58), I first attempted to take control of the combative subject's legs in an attempt to control him, and turn him over to his stomach in order to get him handcuffed. During this time, the subject was repeatedly ordered to stop resisting and to put his hands behind his back. The subject continued to disregard police verbal commands, and continued to resist our attempts at placing him into custody. Seeing that his control technique was unsuccessful, and that the subject continued to resist, I then moved (relocated) to the subject's upper body area (torso/shoulders) in order to gain control of his shoulders and head. The subject continued to resist and disregard police verbal commands. During this time, we/I were unable to turn the subject onto his stomach. It was at this time I realized the subject might be trying to turn his body in an attempt to get to his feet. Ofc. Yates appeared to be getting fatigued. Therefore, after making these observations, I elected to use an open hand stun technique to the back of the subject's head. After utilizing this trained technique, the subject appeared to be in a daze state, and I continued to control the subject's upper body. Officers continued to order the subject to stop resisting and to put his hands behind his back. A short time later the subject was successfully handcuffed by several officers.17-50846/10/17Buell2233rd WardOpen hand stun technique18MBBatteryOfficer needs assistance (backup officer)DaylightN/AN/ARedactedN/AGillett (see above)Take down (Officer Yates)Redacted6/147204Buell; Yates; "officers"Norace not redacted in narrativeAssist in Arrest - UoF was used to daze resisting arrestee
[CNP REDACTION] was advised that she was under arrest for a domestic battery investigation, & obstructing justice. [CNP REDACTION] was advised that she was under arrest numerous times by myself. She was holding a 2 month old child and refused to allow the father to take possession of the juvenile. I was able to secure the right arm of [CNP REDACTION] and control her arm with soft open hand techniques. At this point the father, [EPD REDACTION], was able to safely take possession of the juvenile. [CNP REDACTION] stated I am not going to jail and began to flail her free left arm and she took a wide stance and refused to obey loud clear verbal lawful commands that she was under arrest. After a brief struggle Officers were unable to gain control of [CNP REDACTION]. I attempted to a single leg take down on [CNP REDACTION], but was unsuccessful.

On 15 January 2017 at approximately 0048 hours I, Sergeant J. Bust #10, responded to [CNP REDACTION], to assist EFD with a medical run. [CNP REDACTION] appeared to be under the influence of an unknown narcotic. He was clothed only in a pair of jeans and appeared nervous, had dilated pupils, and was running around the hotel room disobeying orders from the Evanston Fire Department. I observed Trigg push away from one of the fire fighters that was attempting to render aid. At that point I gave [CNP REDACTION] a loud clear verbal command to place his hands behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] did not comply with my orders and attempted to push past me. I attempted to grasp [CNP REDACTION]'s arm with both of my hands. [CNP REDACTION] pushed me with both open hands in my chest. I began to struggle with [CNP REDACTION] and was assisted by Sergeant Wernick and Commander Sacluti in conducting a take-down. We fell to the ground and he continued to resist arrest by flailing his arms and kicking his legs. I continued to use open hand techniques to place the subject into custody. The subjects' pants came off and I was only able to hold onto his right ankle. At this point I requested Officer Jones to deploy his Taser (Please see his use of force report for additional information). The Taser was deployed by Officer Jones. [CNP REDACTION] was able to free himself from the probes and flee on foot down the hallway. I followed [CNP REDACTION] , Officer Jones, Officer Herrera, Sergeant Wernick, and Commander Sacluti approximately 100 feet west in the hallway where I observed the above mentioned Officers again struggling with [CNP REDACTION]'s.

In summary but non-verbatim unless otherwise stated on 04/25/18 I, Sergeant J. Bush #10, responded to a call for service of a suspicious incident involving a bank. A silver colored Hyundai with an Illinois registration of [EPD REDACTION] was involved in the suspicious circumstances. Evanston Police Officers Buell #223 and Officer Messing #228 conducted a traffic stop on the above listed vehicle. During the traffic stop the driver fled the scene. A short time later Officer Serviss #206 stated that he observed the vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed westbound on Main from Brown Street. Officer Serviss #206 advised that the vehicle had crashed at the northwest corner of Fowler Avenue and Main Street. Officer Serviss #206 radioed that the driver had fled on foot westbound from that location. At approximately 2421 Main Street I observed Officer Serviss #206, Detective Just #190, and Detective Tamburrino #123 attempting to place the driver into custody. The driver was actively resisting arrest by flailing his arms and legs and attempting to free himself. I exited my marked squad car #49 and approached the group. The subject was lying on the ground with the above mentioned Officers attempting to hand cuff him. I heard Officer Serviss yell that the subject was attempting to get his gun. At that point I deployed two knee strikes and struck the driver with a closed right fist on the left side of his ribs. I was able to gain control of his left wrist and assist with placing him into handcuffs. It should be noted that prior to placing the driver into custody Detective Just deployed her Taser / Conducted Electrical Weapon (CEW). The Evanston Fire Department was requested to treat the arrestee. The arrestee, identified as [CNP REDACTION] was transported to [EPD REDACTION] to be treated for minor lacerations to his face and the Taser deployment.

In Summary: On 9/10/19 at approximately 1345 Hours I responded to 2758 Lawndale Ave to assist patrol units with serving a short form notification for an order of protection. Upon arrival I was met at the door by the respondent [EPD REDACTION] who advised her husband was inside and would more than likely be combative upon seeing us. I proceeded to enter the property along with Ofc. Lopez #155 and Ofc. San Roman #166. We were met in the hall by [CNP REDACTION] who was holding two steak knives, one in each hand. I gave [CNP REDACTION] several commands to drop the knives and he failed to comply. After warning [CNP REDACTION] he would be tased if he did not drop the knives, I subsequently tased [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] fell to the ground and released both knives and was subsequently handcuffed by Ofc. Lopez.

On 8/25/2019 at approximately 13:45 Hours I Detective Sosa #103 responded to the area of [CNP REDACTION] for a battery in progress. Communications advised that the male subject was battering a female subject. Upon arrival I heard Officer Ostap over the radio advise responding units the subject [CNP REDACTION] was going to be combative and he was leaving the area on foot northbound on Darrow towards Lake Street. I observed [CNP REDACTION] walking away westbound from the officers in the middle of Lake Street towards Dodge. Upon my approach Officer Nelson was ordering [CNP REDACTION] to the ground. I observed delayed compliance from [CNP REDACTION]. I handcuffed [CNP REDACTION]’s right wrist and Officer Serviss Handcuffed the left wrist. There were only simple handcuffing techniques used to apply the handcuffs. Simple empty hand control methods were used to subdue [CNP REDACTION] while he was being uncooperative with police and paramedics. I did not accompany officers and [CNP REDACTION] to the hospital for the psychological evaluation. See additional supplements and field general for further details.

On 9/2/18 at approximately 1029 hours I, Officer Carrigan #138 was on scene at [CNP REDACTION] in reference to a traffic accident. While investigating the incident, the parties became argumentative and verbally aggressive. I attempted to verbally diffuse the argument after which one party, [CNP REDACTION], began to shout "Play with me, play with me, I wanna fight too, I wanna fight too" at the other subject on scene. [CNP REDACTION] was waiving(sic) her hand while shouting. I believed that if [CNP REDACTION] was not removed from the area, the incident would continue to escalate. It should be noted that during the investigation [CNP REDACTION] had been identified as having driven while her driver's license was revoked. I then attempted to affect an arrest on [CNP REDACTION]. I took hold of [CNP REDACTION]'s right wrist, and attempted to place a handcuff on her arm after which she pulled her arm away forcefully, and turned her body towards me. Due to her previously aggressive behavior, I believed that [CNP REDACTION] was going to retailiate, and attempt to defeat the arrest. To prevent further physical altercation, I took hold of [CNP REDACTION]'s upper body with both arms, and performed a take down. [CNP REDACTION] was then placed into custody without further incident. Body worn camera video was reviewed prior to drafting this report.18-78409/3/1831/10/2021Carrigan1382nd WardTake down-upper body pull down21FBDriving while license revokedAssignmentDaylightN/AN/AN/AN/AN/AN/AN/A411 CarriganYesTraffic Accident - UoF used when arrestee turned towards officer after pulling arm away from officer's grasp
On 05/24/17 at approximately 1315 hrs, I, Det. Carter #130, was assisting the TAC unit with a traffic stop. One of the passengers of the vehicle, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], fled the scene of the traffic stop on foot. [CNP REDACTION] fled on foot into moving traffic where he collided with a vehicle traveling south on Ridge. Despite colliding with the vehicle and being given multiple loud verbal commands to stop running by myself and Detective Holliman, [CNP REDACTION] continued to flee south on Ridge. At this point, I immediately began to pursue Mr. Smith on foot as he ran towards the back yard of [CNP REDACTION]. I gave clear and loud verbal commands that I was the Police and for Mr. Smith to stop running. Mr. Smith continued to run through the driveway of [CNP REDACTION] and approached the rear fence of [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] attempted to jump over the fence. I attempted to pull [CNP REDACTION] off of the fence that he was trying to climb over. I continued to give him verbal commands to stop running. Seconds later, Detective Holliman arrived in the back yard. Detective Holliman also gave [CNP REDACTION] verbal commands to get off the fence. [CNP REDACTION] ignored our verbal commands. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION] by his shirt and pulled him down to the grass. [CNP REDACTION] was still attempting to get up and run. [CNP REDACTION] was attempting to push his body off of the ground in an attempt to flee from Detective Holliman and myself. While ordering [CNP REDACTION] to stop resisting, I administered an open hand palm strike to the side of his face.

On the June 6, 2018 at approximately 1113 hours, my partner Detective Geyer and I went to the rear of [CNP REDACTION] in order to investigate a weapons and drug complaint received at the location. While at the location, we came into contact with the subject of the complaint [CNP REDACTION]. During the investigation, [CNP REDACTION] walked to an open window on the passenger's side of his vehicle. He refused all requests to step away from the window of the vehicle. My partner and I feared that he was concealing a weapon inside of the vehicle. Additionally, there was the strong smell of burnt and unburnt cannabis emanating from inside of his vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] was acting very erratic. When I asked [CNP REDACTION] to step away from the rolled down passenger's side door. He became agitated and irate. He said that he was about to die and that he "wanted to die." He called 911 and told one of our dispatchers that he was about to die. After [CNP REDACTION] ignored several of my requests to step aside so we can complete our investigation, he began to lean against the passenger's side door within an arm's length of where the described gun was allegedly located. Fearing for my safety and the safety of my assisting unit, I tried to physically move [CNP REDACTION] away from the passenger's side window. [CNP REDACTION] tightened up his body and refused to be removed from the passenger's side door/window. I, along with assisting detectives, attempted to place [CNP REDACTION] in handcuffs. He refused our efforts by tightening up his body, trying to move his hands to the front of his body, and pulling his entire body away from assisting detectives. [CNP REDACTION] screamed, "I'm ready to die now, Ya'll going to have to kill me! During the struggle [CNP REDACTION] was screaming repeatedly, "Kill me bitch, kill motherfucker!" Detective Geyer #244 requested an extra pair of handcuffs so that [CNP REDACTION] could be double handcuffed as to prevent the likelihood of injury. [CNP REDACTION] refused to be handcuffed. I heard Detective Geyer #244 say that he was losing grip of [CNP REDACTION]. Fearing that [CNP REDACTION] was trying to get to the suspected gun, I announced taser up. I request [CNP REDACTION] to comply with our efforts to handcuff him or he would be tased. I observed Detective Geyer losing his grasp of [CNP REDACTION]. I then deployed my taser striking [CNP REDACTION] in the middle of his shirtless back. [CNP REDACTION] fell to the ground and struck his mouth on the concrete parking barrier [EPD REDACTION]. Please refer to Use of Force Report 18-004850(B) for explanation of my second taser deployment on [CNP REDACTION]. In Furtherance of the Use of Force regarding [CNP REDACTION]: While [CNP REDACTION] was on the ground from the first taser deployment, he continued to ignore my requests to stop resisting and to allow us to handcuff him. I requested [CNP REDACTION] numerous times to stop resisting and I cautioned him that I would have to tase him again if he continued to resist. [CNP REDACTION] continued to ignore my requests. I called taser deployment to alert [CNP REDACTION] that he would be tased again if he continued to fight with us. After a moment of watching [CNP REDACTION] flail his arms and body around, I depressed the trigger to my taser. This sent another cycle to the probes that was already in his back. Thus I tased him twice. After the second taser deployment, [CNP REDACTION] was handcuffed and transported to Evanston Hospital for treatment.18-4850(A&B)6/6/1803/11/2021Carter1305th Ward(2) Taser Deployment40MBUUW, Agg.

On 03-06-16 I Detective Cherrey #127 approached a vehicle at [CNP REDACTION] which was driven by a [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] was previously failing to stop from Officers Tyson #215 and Yates #143. Yates and I approached the vehicle and I advised [CNP REDACTION] that he was under arrest. We were then able to open the driver side of the door at which time Yates was able to grab a hold of [CNP REDACTION]'s right arm as I gained control of his left arm. We then took [CNP REDACTION] to the ground. After [CNP REDACTION] was on the ground, he immediately placed his hands under his body and began to thrash around. At this point, [CNP REDACTION] was laying on his stomach with his hands tucked under his chest. I instructed [CNP REDACTION] numerous times to put his hands behind his back but he refused. [CNP REDACTION] then attempted to push his body off the ground and was able to lift himself partially off the ground. In response to this, I delivered one knee strike to the left rib area of [CNP REDACTION]. After the knee strick, [CNP REDACTION] was again on his stomach but continued to refuse verbal commands to place his hands behind his back. Due to this continued resistance, I deployed my chemical agent to [CNP REDACTION]'s facial area in two short bursts. Shortly after the chemical agent deployment, [CNP REDACTION] placed his hands behind his back and was taken into custody without further incident.

On 04/24/18 at approximately 2253 hours I Officer Cherrey #127 responded to [CNP REDACTION] to assist Officer Witt with a traffic violation offender. The driver [CNP REDACTION] was told he was under arrest and to put his hands behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] refused verbal commands to do so and began to tense his arms while being placed under arrest. I was physically attempting to gain control of his right arm, however [CNP REDACTION] continued to attempt to pull away from me. Witt was eventually able to handcuff [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm. After doing so, Abdelfattah was taken down face first on a nearby patch of grass. This caused minor injuries to his facial area. He was subsequently treated at [EPD REDACTION] NFI.18-33824/24/1823/12/2021Cherrey1278th WardTakedown35MIResisting, Speeding, Fleeing and Eluding, DUIRadio assignmentDark with limited lightingDNADNARedactedDNAMohamed AbdelfattahDuring takedownredacted1602 Cherrey; WittNoTraffic Stop - taken down while Handcuffing
On 05/31/18 at approximately 0322 hours I Officer Cherrey #127 responded to [CNP REDACTION] along with Sgt. D. Prieto for a check the well being. The caller reported that he was currently being robbed inside of his apartment. While I was arriving on scene, I observed a male (later identified as [EPD REDACTION]) leaving the apartment complex. I went to conduct a field interview with [EPD REDACTION], and after a brief conversation told him to remove a bag he was wearing. He began to unzip the bag, at which time I told him to stop and not reach inside. At this time I was fearing [CNP REDACTION] may be reaching for a weapon. In response to this, I grabbed a hold of [CNP REDACTION]'s arm at which time he began struggling, tensing his arms and trying to break free from my grasp. Due to [CNP REDACTION]'s actions I conducted a takedown causing him to land on the street face down. [CNP REDACTION] continued to tense his arms and was attempting to bring his arms underneath his body. At one point he broke free of Prieto's grasp with his left arm. I then deployed 2 to 3 short bursts of my department chemical agent to his facial area. After doing so, I was able to handcuff him with Prieto's assistance. It should be noted that during the incident Sgt. Prieto suffered an injury to his knee resulting in him seeking medical treatment.

On 6/1/19 at approximately 0043 hours I, Ofc. D. Pack #234 and my partner Ofc. J. Roden #124 were dispatched to [CNP REDACTION] for a call of a person shot. We arrived on scene with our emergency lights activated and used our squad car’s air horn to assist in dispersing a very large crowd which was gathered on the west side of the street. As we began our search for any potential gunshot victims, we encountered approximately 300 people gathered on the street, with numerous fights actively in progress. I observed [CNP REDACTION] actively engaged in a physical fight with another unknown subject. [CNP REDACTION] had his arms raised and his fists clenched, and was actively striking the unknown subject. There was also a large group of approximately 10 other people in extremely close proximity who also appeared to be engaged in the physical altercation. In order to prevent further injury to the unknown individual and others, I deployed my Taser directly to [CNP REDACTION]'s torso, targeting the large muscle group in his abdomen. During the cycle of the Taser, [CNP REDACTION] was guided to the ground using soft control techniques and placed in handcuffs (double locked and tension checked). Due to the size of the crowd engaged in the fight, the need for immediate intervention to prevent injuries to other individuals and potential escalation of the fight, I was unable to give adequate verbal commands to [CNP REDACTION] prior to deploying my Taser. It should be noted at the conclusion of the incident I discovered both of my Taser cartridges had been deployed while I was engaged with [CNP REDACTION].

On 09/22/2019 at approximately 0345 hours Officer Cherrey *127 and I, Officer Chipolet responded to a call of a disturbance at [CNP REDACTION]. During the course of the investigation, [CNP REDACTION] was handcuffed and taken into custody for a city ordinance violation (possession of an open container of alcohol). [CNP REDACTION] eventually began to resist efforts while being searched and refused to be placed in the back of our squad car. [CNP REDACTION] began to kick the squad car and thrash his arms back in forth(sic) in an attempt to push away from the squad car. Due to [CNP REDACTION]’s actions and behavior, a controlled take down was performed and [CNP REDACTION] was taken to the ground by myself and Officer Cherrey.

[CNP REDACTION] fled a traffic stop in the area of Western and Howard after I located a firearm near his feet and after trying to flee in a vehicle subsequently striking our marked squad car. [CNP REDACTION] then ran east bound on Howard and eventually south bound in the west alley of the 7500 block of Oakley. [CNP REDACTION] began jumping numerous fences and yards in the area. Fellow officers responded to the area and were giving updates of his location. I eventually located [CNP REDACTION] walking from the rear yard at [CNP REDACTION] toward the front entrance gate. I told [CNP REDACTION] to get on the ground, however he failed to do so. In response to this, I pointed my Taser through the front gate and deployed it striking [CNP REDACTION]. Upon deploying the Taser, [CNP REDACTION] immediately went to the ground and was handcuffed by fellow officers.

On -5/04/2020 at approximately 0140 hours I Officer Cherrey #127 responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a report of a domestic disturbance. Officer Niedziela #118 was first on scene. While Officer Chipolet #132 and I were arriving, Niedziela asked for more officers to assist him in the rear stairwell. At that time, I observed Niedziela attempt to do a pat down of a subject [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] refused to comply with verbal commands to put his hands on a nearby wall. [CNP REDACTION] eventually complied momentarily by putting both hands on the wall but immediately removed his right hand moving it towards his waist band and out of my sight. I was able to get a hold of [CNP REDACTION]'s hand, at which time I noticed broken glass on the ground to my right and a woman screaming from somewhere in the vicinity. As I gained control of [CNP REDACTION]'s right arm, he began flexing and kept attempting to move his right arm toward his waist and belt line area. Due to [CNP REDACTION]'s behavior, and fearing he may have a weapon, I attempted to bring [CNP REDACTION]'s right hand behind his back so he could be handcuffed. [CNP REDACTION] continued to attempt to break free from my grasp. [CNP REDACTION] then broke free of my grasp and immediately moved his hand toward his waist and out of my sight. In response to this, I struke [CNP REDACTION] twice in the back/right rib area with a closed fist. After this, I grabbed a hold of [CNP REDACTION]'s right shoulder area and [CNP REDACTION] along with fellow officers and I fell to the ground in the rear exterior entrance of the apartment complex. [CNP REDACTION] would still not comply with my verbal commands to put his hands behind his back and continued to attempt to put his hands underneath him while thrashing about. In response to this behavior, I delivered multiple fist and knee strikes to the rib/back area of [CNP REDACTION]. These strikes only had limited effectiveness, but eventually we were able to get both of [CNP REDACTION]'s hands handcuffed despite him actively resisting/obstructing our efforts.

While on routine patrol I, Officer Chipolet *132 observed a bicycle parked against a blue Chrysler Town and Country [CNP REDACTION] in front of [CNP REDACTION]. Upon further investigation I made contact with [CNP REDACTION] who was sitting in the driver seat of the vehicle. I asked [CNP REDACTION] if the vehicle belonged to him and he stated it did. I then asked [CNP REDACTION] if the bicycle belonged to him and he shrugged and stated it did not. [CNP REDACTION] appeared to be extremely nervous so I asked him to step out of the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] complied and I informed him we was going to be detained in handcuffs while I continued my investigation. [CNP REDACTION] tensed his muscles and attempted to pull away from me. I was able to grab [CNP REDACTION] by his jacket and secure his hands. I informed [CNP REDACTION] that he was under arrest and told him to stop resisting. [CNP REDACTION] continued to try to defeat the arrest by attempting to kick my feet and make me lose my balance. I then was able to grab [CNP REDACTION] by his torso and I performed a controlled takedown to the sidewalk in front of 636 Sherman Avenue. I was able to secure [CNP REDACTION] in handcuffs until backup units arrived. [CNP REDACTION] was asked if he needed any medical treatment and he declined. There were no visible injuries on [CNP REDACTION]. Further investigation revealed [CNP REDACTION] did not have permission from the owner to be in the vehicle. Subsequently the vehicle owner wanted to sign complaints against [CNP REDACTION]. Arrest paperwork for [CNP REDACTION] was completed and turned over to Juvenile Detectives.19-1085312/01/1901/10/2021Chipolet1329th WardControlled Takedown17MRedactedCriminal Trespass to Vehicle, Resisting ArrestOn-viewStreet LampsN/AN/AN/AN/AN/AN/AN/A1201 ChipoletNoOn-view of suspicious activity - UoF used during resisting arrest
On 8/7/16 at 0325 hrs. Ofc. Robbins and I, Ofc. Conley, responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a disturbance investigation. A refused citizen advised that there was a group of people out front and they were fighting. I attempted to interview [CNP REDACTION] while in front of the above location and [CNP REDACTION] was extremely irate and agitated. I advised [CNP REDACTION] to calm down and advised him that I needed to check his person for weapons. [CNP REDACTION] then began to yell obscenities out loud and refused to stop yelling. Once Ofc. Rosenbaum arrived on scene, I attempted to pat [CNP REDACTION] down again and grabbed his pants to gain control of him. Once I grabbed [CNP REDACTION], he advised that I needed to stop pulling on him and started clenching and unclenching his fist. [CNP REDACTION] then raised his right fist above his head and slammed it into vehicle #48, causing a dent to the front left side of it. At that time, I attempted to take [CNP REDACTION] into custody and grabbed his left arm. [CNP REDACTION] and tensed up and pulled away from me. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s body around the chest area, and performed a control takedown. [CNP REDACTION] was then rolled onto his stomach and had his right side of his face on the ground. [CNP REDACTION] was ordered to place his hands behind his back, but refused to do so and scratched his face during the struggle before being taken into custody. Nothing further at this time.16-227818/7/1602/10/2021Conley2144th WardTakedown17MRedactedCriminal Damage to Government Supported PropertyOn-ViewDark, lightedN/AN/ARedactedN/AAnthony MP StrachanDuring a controlled takedown while attempting to take Strachen into custodyRedacted303Conley; Robbins; RosenbaumNoReport of disturbance (fight) - unclear if person Officer used force on was part of the disturbance
On 5/22/16 at approximately 0200 hours, Sgt. L. Miller #26 and I, Sgt. Correa #17, responded to [CNP REDACTION] on a report of a large group fighting with a potential subject with a gun inside. Approximately 50-60 subjects had already exited [CNP REDACTION], and were yelling and screaming in the immediate area and street. I observed subjects throwing metal tables and breaking beer bottles. I issued several commands to pedestrians to leave the area when, approximately 15 feet south of the entrance to [CNP REDACTION], a group [CNP REDACTION] began to fight. These subjects did not comply with my verbal commands to disburse, but rather continued fighting. I observed Sgt. Miller deploy his Taser and as his offender fell, a 2nd subject, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], grabbed a metal chair and raised it above his head in a motion to strike someone. Fearing that [CNP REDACTION] was about to cause bodily harm to someone or potentially direct his aggression toward me, I deployed my Taser striking [CNP REDACTION] in the left shoulder and back area. I administered one 5 second cycle causing [CNP REDACTION] to tense up and fall to the ground. [CNP REDACTION] was taken into custody without incident.16-1349305/22/1626/09/2021Correa171st WardTaser20MBMob ActionDispatch assignmentDark with street lightingNoneN/ARedactedN/ADemitrius R.

On 5/26/19 at approximately 0252 hrs. I, Officer B. Hicks #251, was assisting in the search for an offender of a burglary/criminal trespass investigation in [CNP REDACTION]. The alleged burglary/criminal trespass occurred at the construction site at [CNP REDACTION], and two suspects were observed fleeing east from the scene. After one suspect was placed in custody, I was searching for the second suspect in the courtyard of [CNP REDACTION] I had my Taser out and in the ready position when I located the second suspect, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], hiding under a bush inside a small fenced area near the west end of the courtyard. Upon locating [CNP REDACTION], I gave my location over the radio so other officers could assist me with taking [CNP REDACTION] into custody. With my Taser pointed at [CNP REDACTION], I gave several clear commands instructing Hodges not to move and place his hands on the gate, commands which [CNP REDACTION] did not comply with. Instead, [CNP REDACTION] opened the gate and exited the small fenced area. Just as [CNP REDACTION] exited the gate, Officer Cherrey arrived and instructed [CNP REDACTION] to get on the ground. [CNP REDACTION] appeared to comply with Cherrey’s instructions and began to crouch down, and then jumped up and charged toward other officers who responding to my radio call for assistance. Fearful that [CNP REDACTION] might injure assisting officers by running into or fighting with them, I discharged my Taser toward [CNP REDACTION]’s right side/back area, which appeared to have no effect on [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] continued to run past responding officers who gave chase and were eventually able to take [CNP REDACTION] into custody in the alley behind [CNP REDACTION] It should be noted that I reviewed my body worn camera footage prior to writing this report.19-424705/28/1928/09/2021Correa174th WardTaser28MBTrespass to LandDispatched call for serviceDarkNoneDNADNA.

In summary on 3/``/`6, I, (OFC. Curran #237), and Ofc. Pratt #182 were dispatched to [CNP REDACTION] for a report of a fight that might occur. Upon our arrival I observed a large group of high school kids, males and females (approx. 20), standing on the side walk. While on scene [EPD REDACTION] attempted to fight with other kids several times. I was holding onto [EPD REDACTION] and attempting to get her to leave the area when she broke away from me and engaged in a physical altercation, kicking at another girl and striking her with her hands (the girl is unidentified and fled the area). I pulled [EPD REDACTION] away from the physical altercation and she continued to attempt to reengage. After giving [EPD REDACTION] verbal commands to "stop" and she continued to attempt to reengage I performed and empty hand take down, placing her on the ground, and placed handcuffs on her. There was no further incident after placing [EPD REDACTION] into handcuffs.

After getting [CNP REDACTION] into the cell I backed out of the cell and[CNP REDACTION] walked towards me attempting to exit the cell. I verbally instructed [CNP REDACTION] to sit on the bench. I placed my arm up to hold [CNP REDACTION] back so that I could get the cell door closed and made contact with her upper body. After making contact with [CNP REDACTION] she fell backwards onto the ground, using her left hand to brace the fall. [CNP REDACTION] did not complain of any pain or injuries.

On 8/16/19 at 1756 hours I, Ofc. Curran #237, was at the intersection of Howard and Ridge when I observed a physical fight occurring east of Ridge in the street. Upon exiting my squad car I disarmed two subjects that(sic) were holding a baseball bat and a hammer, no one was fighting at this time. I then observed two female subjects fighting with one another. I took hold of the closest subject, [CNP REDACTION], who kept attempting to fight with the other subject. At this time I performed an open hand take down on [CNP REDACTION], forcing her to the ground. [CNP REDACTION] was then cuffed, double locked, placed into my squad car, seatbelted in, and transported to the Evanston Police Department for the battery investigation. No injuries were reported to me by [CNP REDACTION] at the time of the incident.19-733908/16/1930/11/2021Curran2378th WardOpen Empty Hand Take Down16FRedactedBattery investigation, released without chargesOn ViewDaylightNoneDNADNADNADNADNADNA2701 CurranNoOn-view of fight taking place - UoF occurred to prevent the arrestee from attacking another suspect
[CNP REDACTION] then shouted "Fucking arrest him [CNP REDACTION]." At the same time she raised both of her hands above her head, clenching her fists, while stepping towards me. As she stepped towards me she began to swing both of her arms downwards towards my head and shoulders. I grabbed both of [CNP REDACTION]'s wrists as she attempted to hit me, and swiftly took her to the ground with an open hand take down using her momentum across my body. Once on the ground and handcuffed [CNP REDACTION] kicked me in the left leg/buttocks 3-4 times, and attempted to kick me numerous times after that.

On 3/8/16 at approximately 0305 hours I, Officer D. Pack responded to a call of a suspicious person in the rear of [CNP REDACTION]. I subsequently engaged [CNP REDACTION] in the back yard of [CNP REDACTION] as part of an ongoing investigation of said suspicious person call. I encountered [CNP REDACTION], who was concealing himself under the deck area of the above address, who I believed to be a subject who fled from an earlier traffic stop in which a loaded gun was recovered from a stolen vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] was given verbal commands to crawl out from under the deck and [CNP REDACTION] initially followed my instructions. After being physically removed from under the deck by Ofc. Virani, [CNP REDACTION] was ordered to place his hands behind his back which he refused to do. [CNP REDACTION] tensed his arms and thrashed around on the ground kicking his feet in the air. [CNP REDACTION] was advised to stop resisting multiple times, but continued to stiffen up and resist attempts by Ofc. Virani and Ofc. Reza to place him in handcuffs. At this point, believing the subject could be armed, and due to his actively resisting arrest, I placed my Taser against his left buttocks. I informed [CNP REDACTION] if he continued to resist arrest he would be tased. [CNP REDACTION] then slapped the Taser away from his body and attempted to roll over with his arms clenched to his side. I deployed my Taser for one five second burst using a drive-stun technique to the [CNP REDACTION]'s left buttocks. [CNP REDACTION] immediately ceased his attempts to resist arrest and was handcuffed without further incident.

On 8/24/16 at approximately 0300 hours I, Ofc. D. Pack #234 was assigned to assist other units at [CNP REDACTION] #3 during a domestic battery call. While on scene the offender, [CNP REDACTION] refused to comply with lawful commands given by other uniformed Police Officers on scene. [CNP REDACTION] was informed she was under arrest for domestic battery and obstructing a peace officer in the performance of his official duties. Other officers on scene, including Sgt. Bush, Commander Sacluti, Ofc. J. Dietrich, and Ofc. K. Popp attempted to place [CNP REDACTION] under arrest. [CNP REDACTION] was given verbal commands to place her hands behind her back. [CNP REDACTION] refused to comply and other officers on scene attempted to affect the arrest using non-impact control techniques. [CNP REDACTION] resisted the Officers attempts to handcuff her by tensing her arms and legs and taking a wide aggressive stance, preventing the officers from placing her arms behind her back. As other officers attempted to take [CNP REDACTION] to the ground she continued to resist their efforts by shuffling her feet and tensing her leg muscles while stating "you ain't taking me to jail". [CNP REDACTION] was informed if she continued to resist she was going to be tased. As other officers struggled to control [CNP REDACTION]'s arms and safely place her in handcuffs, she began to shuffle towards the dresser in the room. Believing other officers and [CNP REDACTION] might suffer injuries due to the small size of the room, I deployed my Taser for one five second burst using a drive-stun technique to [CNP REDACTION] lower right back area. [CNP REDACTION] immediately ceased her attempts to resist arrest and was handcuffed without further incident.

On 1/19/17 at approximately 0120 hours I, Ofc. D. Pack #234 responded to the north bound Davis street EL Platform for a call of a man with a knife. Dispatch gave a description of a male white wearing blue jeans and a long green jacket waving a large knife at passengers waiting to get onto the train. Upon arrival I observed the subject, later identified [CNP REDACTION] was standing on the platform with his back turned towards me with his body concealed by the long green jacket. [CNP REDACTION] was given verbal commands to show me his hands and get on the ground. [CNP REDACTION] ignored my commands and began bending over reaching towards the black backpack that was at his feet. I kicked the back pack away from him and performed an emergency takedown, guiding him to the ground face down, while giving him verbal commands to put his hands behind his back, which he refused to do. [CNP REDACTION] tensed his arms underneath his body and ignored several more verbal commands to stop resisting and place his hands behind his back. At this point, believing the subject to be armed with a knife, and due to him actively resisting arrest, I placed my Taser against his back and informed [CNP REDACTION] if he continued to resist arrest he would be tased. [CNP REDACTION] continued to clench his arms under his body preventing assisting officers from placing him in handcuffs. I deployed my Taser for one five second burst aiming for the preferred target area of the large muscle group of his back and deployed the taser for a second five second burst using the drive stun technique. [CNP REDACTION] immediately ceased his attempt to resist arrest and was handcuffed without further incident. It should be noted that a subsequent search of the subject revealed a black pocket knife which was recovered from his left pants pocket.17-5931/19/1723/09/2021D.Pack2341st WardTaser Deployment53MWResisting ArrestRadio Assignment, On-ViewDark but on Lighted PlatformNoneleft emptyleft emptyleft emptyNoneleft emptyleft empty01D.PackNoReport of man with knife - Arrestee unarmed before and at time of UoF
On 3/3/17 at approximately 2354 hours I, Ofc. D. Pack #234 responded to the north bound Davis street Metra Platform for a call of a person on the tracks. Dispatch stated a caller reported a man was laying down on the tracks possibly attempting to commit suicide. Upon arrival I observed [CNP REDACTION] standing on the north bound tracks as a Metra train approached the platform. [CNP REDACTION] was given verbal commands to exit the tracks. [CNP REDACTION] ignored my commands and continued walking toward the train. As the train pulled into the platform, and while it was still in motion, [CNP REDACTION] again ignored my commands to exit the tracks, and began to flee towards the front of the train. At this point, believing the subject was indeed attempting to harm himself, and not knowing if he possessed other means of doing so, I deployed my Taser for one five second burst from approximately 20 feet away with the target being [CNP REDACTION]'s back. The Taser deployment was unsuccessful due to excessive separation of the prongs based on the distance the Taser was deployed from. However, one of the prongs did stick into the loose end of the shirt [CNP REDACTION] was wearing, and [CNP REDACTION] immediately stopped running. I was then able to catch up to [CNP REDACTION] and grab his arm to guide him off of the tracks and onto the platform. After relocating [CNP REDACTION] to the platform I immediately placed him into handcuffs (double locked and checked for proper tension) and conducted a pat down for weapons. As I patted [CNP REDACTION] down he tensed his arms and attempted to grab my left hand as I held his hands behind his back during the pat down. I then guided [CNP REDACTION] to the ground where he began to roll around tensing his body. The pat down was subsequently completed while I held [CNP REDACTION] on the ground. No weapons or contraband were located on [CNP REDACTION]'s person. It should be noted that after completing the pat down I observed [EPD REDACTION] which were sustained while he was rolling around on the ground during the pat down.

On 7/18/17 at approximately 0505 hours I, Ofc. D. Pack #234 responded to [CNP REDACTION] for an involuntary committal call. Dispatch informed me a subject barricaded himself in a restroom and was acting violent towards his mother. While speaking with the subject, Ofc. Nelson #233 was able to open the restroom door and the subject exited the restroom and immediately pushed officer Nelson. I attempted to gain physical control of [CNP REDACTION]'s arms to restrain him so paramedics could safely transport him to the hospital. [CNP REDACTION] repeatedly stated "fuck you you racist pigs" and began swinging his arms and kicking his legs to prevent Ofc. Nelson and I from restraining him. [CNP REDACTION] then clenched his right fist and swung it at me making contact with the left side of my face two times. Ofc. Nelson and I repeatedly told [CNP REDACTION] to stop fighting with us and place his hands behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] ignored our commands and began to kick at me. Fearing receiving further battery, and to effectively detain [CNP REDACTION] for a committal, I deployed my taser directly to [CNP REDACTION]'s torso for one 5 second burst, targeting the large muscle group in his abdomen. During the 5 second cycle of the taser, Ofc. Nelson and I were able to control [CNP REDACTION]'s arms and place handcuffs on him.

On 7/29/17 at approximately 2342 hours I, Ofc. D. Pack #234 responded to [CNP REDACTION] for an unwanted subject/city ordinance violation. I made my way up to the platform where I attempted to make contact with the subject later identified as [CNP REDACTION]. I asked [CNP REDACTION] to come speak with me but he refused and waked away from me. I caught up with [CNP REDACTION] at which point he turned around and stated, "I'm gonna fucking shoot you, don't run up on me, I'll fucking kill you". I informed [CNP REDACTION] he was under arrest for urinating in the elevator and instructed him to put his hands behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] refused and I attempted to take control of his arm so I could place him into handcuffs. [CNP REDACTION] attempted to pull away from me and I guided him up against the wall of the platform where I eventually placed him into handcuffs. Officer S. Brown #142 arrived on scene and assisted me in conducting a search of [CNP REDACTION]'s person for weapons or contraband. While we were searching Graham, he gathered saliva into his mouth and spit into the face of Officer Brown. The search was completed and [CNP REDACTION] was escorted off the platform to my squad care for transport to the Evanston Police Station. While walking [CNP REDACTION] into the squad car he began fighting with us again and kicked at Officer Brown several times while gathering saliva in his mouth again. In order to further battery to officers, and safely place him into my Police vehicle a takedown was conducted. I also utilized an open hand strike to [CNP REDACTION]'s face, to prevent him from spitting on Officers again. [CNP REDACTION] immediately became compliant and was subsequently placed into handcuffs for transport to EPD.

On 06/01/2019 at approximaltey(sic) 0040 hours I responded to a large disturbance at [CNP REDACTION] including a person that may be shot. While clearing the area I approached a group including [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] was yelling at other people in the area and appeared to be attempting to start a fight. As I approached he was being held back near a wall by an unknown female. I ordered the group to disperse at which time [CNP REDACTION] turned toward me and stared me in the face. Unidentified people grabbed a hold of [CNP REDACTION] as he clenched his fists while still staring at me. He then attempted to walk toward me while still having his fists clenched. Unidentified people were still attempting to hold him back. At one point, [CNP REDACTION] moved around one of the subject holding him back and again attempted to engage me. In response to the large group in my vicinity, and fearing that [CNP REDACTION] would break free of the group and batter me, I deployed my department issued chemical agent toward the face of [CNP REDACTION]. In doing so, multiple people were affected and fled the area with [CNP REDACTION]. One subject (Unknown male black) did not flee the area and turned in my direction. He then stepped toward me, causing me to believe that he was going to physically engage me. In response to his actions, I sprayed another short burst of chemical agent toward his facial area. After doing so, the subject fled the area northbound. [CNP REDACTION] was located by fellow officers a short time later and taken into custody.

In summary: On 11/21/19 at approximately 0105 hrs. I, Officer Hicks #251, was dispatched to a disturbance at [CNP REDACTION] The caller told dispatch her husband was attempting to break down the door to her apartment [CNP REDACTION]. Upon arrival, Officers Pack, Romera, Hindes and I arrived in the fourth floor hallway simultaneously and observed a subject, later identified as [CNP REDACTION] outside the door of [CNP REDACTION] yelling and banging on the door. When Officer Pack instructed [CNP REDACTION] to show his hands, [CNP REDACTION] said, “Let you see my hands?” [CNP REDACTION] continued to aggressively bang on the door with his hands and feet. Pack grabbed [CNP REDACTION] in an attempt to gain compliance, but [CNP REDACTION] resisted. Officer Romero then grabbed [CNP REDACTION] and Pack Romero and [CNP REDACTION] fell to the ground. [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist and refused to be handcuffed. [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist and refused to be handcuffed. [CNP REDACTION] had a puffy winter coat on and it appeared as if he was attempting to put his hands in his pockets. I deployed my Taser to assist Pack, Romero, and Hindes in gaining control of [CNP REDACTION]'s wrists. The Taser prongs struck [CNP REDACTION] in the right arm, and although he seemed to be affected at first, he continued to fight. Due to the thickness of [CNP REDACTION]'s coat, and the fact that his coat kept being pulled due to his resisting, one of the Taser prongs came out and I observed it on the floor. [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist and attempt(sic) to go in his jacket pockets. I deployed another Taser cartridge into [CNP REDACTION]'s back. [CNP REDACTION] was still not compliant so I activated my Taser a third and fourth time, both times appeared ineffective possibly due to the prongs continuously being extracted by the movement of [CNP REDACTION]'s coat against his body. After the final Taser deployment, officers were able to gain control of [CNP REDACTION] and place him in handcuffs.19-1057211/21/1922/09/2021D.Pack2344th WardTaser30MBleft emptyRadio dispatchIndoors, lightedNoneN/AEvanston Hospital, ER Dr. GowarN/AErick M.

In summary: On 1/1/20 at approximately 0400 hrs. I, Officer Pack #234, was dispatched to a disturbance at [CNP REDACTION] The caller told dispatch there were multiple gunshots and several groups fighting in the street. Upon arrival, I observed multiple female subjects actively fighting in the street. I broke up the fight and was attempting to disperse the subjects when [CNP REDACTION] attempted to run past me with his fist balled in the air. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION] in an attempt to prevent him from striking an unknown female subject. Due to the close proximity and rapidly evolving nature of the situation I was unable to give adequate verbal commands. [CNP REDACTION] then pulled away from me, balled up his fists and ran directly into me, while swinging his arms. I then grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s arm in an attempt to take him to the ground and place him in handcuffs. [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist and was still actviely resisting. Subsequently, I used a closed fist and delivered several stunning blows to the large muscle group of [EPD REDACTION] right side while giving commands for him to put his hands behind his back. I was eventually able to gain control of [CNP REDACTION]'s arms and placed him in handcuffs.

On 11/27/16 at approximately 19:12 hours, I, Officer N. Demos #238 along with Officer N. Griffith #193 responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a report of a [EPD REDACTION]. While speaking with [EPD REDACTION], [EPD REDACTION] became increasingly agitated and when [EPD REDACTION] attempted to explain that he felt it was in [EPD REDACTION] best interest to be transported to the Hospital, [EPD REDACTION] ran and was attempting to gain access to her residence. [EPD REDACTION] attempted to restrain [EPD REDACTION] while she attempted to pull away, punched her father and repeated called him a "nigger." When I attempted to assist [EPD REDACTION], [EPD REDACTION] kicked me in the groin. [EPD REDACTION] continued to struggle with [EPD REDACTION] and I was kicked in the groin two more times. It was apparent that [EPD REDACTION] was not capable of restraining his Daughter and what he was doing was ineffective, impeding us from restraining his Daughter and his actions were jeopardizing our safety. I directed [EPD REDACTION] to step aside. When [EPD REDACTION] released [EPD REDACTION] both Officer Griffith and I gave clear verbal commands to stop fighting and quit resisting. When [EPD REDACTION] refused to comply with our verbal direction, using a controlled takedown., Officer Griffith and I were able to place [EPD REDACTION] on the grass, in a seated position and in restraints. After the [EPD REDACTION] arrived on the scene, Officer Griffith and I were leading [EPD REDACTION] to the ambulance when she again became combative and intentionally threw her head back, "head-butting" Officer Griffith in the mouth. Using another controlled takedown, [EPD REDACTION] was again put in a seated position. [EPD REDACTION] was placed on the gurney and transported without further incident. At all times during the incident, the minimal force necessary to control the combative subject and prevent further Officer injury was used.

On 041216 @ approx. 0925Hrs I, Ofc E. Gonzalez #172 responded to [CNP REDACTION], as an assist unit for a Check Well Being/Involuntary Committal. While dealing with subject, [EPD REDACTION], Ofc. Jacobs #248 attempted to explain why we were there when [EPD REDACTION] became irate and started yelling. After refusing to willingly go to the hospital for treatment, [EPD REDACTION] demanded to retrieve his own coat. Ofc. Jacbos offered to get [EPD REDACTION] coat when [EPD REDACTION] stated, "I'll get my fuckn' coat." [EPD REDACTION] then pushed Ofc. Jacobs about the chest area. I then attempted to grab Johnson from behind when we all (myself, [redacted} & Ofc. Jacobs) fell onto the bed. We then rolled onto the floor with [EPD REDACTION] landing on top of me. As I held onto Johnson, Ofc. Jacobs continued to give verbal commands and warned Johnson that he would be tased if he refused to comply. [EPD REDACTION] continued to struggle to free himself when Ofc. Jacobs tased him. He subsequently complied and I then secured him in handcuffs for his safety as well as ours. He was later treated by Evanston Fire/paramedics. See Ofc. Jacobs' Field general for further information.16-929404/12/1627/10/2021E.

In summary but not verbatim: On 04-19-2016 at approximately 13:54hr I Officer Gonzalez#114 was dispatched to back up Officer Jacobs#248 beat 274 on a premise check at [CNP REDACTION]. A refused citizen reported the house is vacant and garage door is partially open. Upon arrival officer Jacobs#248 and I Officer G.Gonzalez#114 made contact with the offender [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION]. Officer Jacobs advised [CNP REDACTION] he was under arrest for Criminal Trespass and at this time he stated "This is not going to workout well for you guys." [CNP REDACTION] now placed his right hand into his waistband of his pants and produced a black semi-automatic firearm with the muzzle facing at my direction. Officer Jacobs unholstered his taser and deployed it striking [CNP REDACTION] on his upper chest but had minimal effectiveness. [CNP REDACTION] raised his weapon with the muzzle pointed directly at Officer Jacobs who was in the open and exposed. I believed the offender's aggressive actions can cause death or great bodily harm to Officer Jacobs. As a result of [CNP REDACTION]'s actions I discharged two (2) rounds at him.16-1009805/04/1613/11/2021G.

In this, arrestee pulls gun first.
On state date and time I (Glew) was in a foot pursuit of a suspect, [CNP REDACTION]. During this foot pursuit I knew that [CNP REDACTION] had pulled a gun on two officers, pulling a gun on an officer is a felony aggravated assault. [CNP REDACTION] fled west bound through the yard of [CNP REDACTION]. I was a behind [CNP REDACTION] and was in the yard north of [CNP REDACTION]. I was running at an angle to intercept his direction of flight or be ready if he changed direction towards me. There was a short chain link fence that separated the yard he was running through from the yard I was running through. During the pursuit I gave several verbal commands to "Stop" and ordered [CNP REDACTION] to "Show his hands". My observation of [CNP REDACTION] as he ran was that he was not running freely and naturally. His right side which I had a good view of was moving more natural than his left side. I could see his right hand and arm. His right hand and arm were moving consistent with running. His left side, arm, and hand were not moving freely, consistent with running. It appeared that he was holding his arm and hand close to his body like he was holding something in his hand. I continued to observe this behavior. I then observed once or twice for a very short time that he was holding a dark colored object in his left hand, its appearance was consistent with him holding a handgun in his left hand. [CNP REDACTION] being armed with a handgun in his left hand placed me in fear of death or great bodily harm as I pursued him. Based on my training and experience I knew if [CNP REDACTION] had made the decision to turn and fire his weapon at me I would not be able to react fast enough to thwart his deadly attack. [CNP REDACTION] would hav ebeen able to potentially fire multiple rounds before I could take any action to protect or defend myself. I had the same fear for other pursuing officers. [CNP REDACTION] was running armed in a populated neighborhood. There was a grade school, a preschool and a synagogue nearby. [CNP REDACTION] was attempting to escape while armed with a handgun after it was discuvered he was committing a burglary and he pulled a gun on two officers upon this discovery. I reasonably believed that [CNP REDACTION] was an immediate threat to cause death of great bodily harm to myself, the other officers, and citizens in the area. Based on the totality of the circumstances I reasonably believed that deadly force was justified to stop [CNP REDACTION] and the danger to myself, the other officers, and citizens. I then stopped running. My duty weapon was unholstered. I fired two shots from my duty weapon at [CNP REDACTION] to stop the threat. As I fired the two shots [CNP REDACTION] continued fleeing west bound and I lost sight of him as he went behind the north side of the garage at [CNP REDACTION]. I did not fire any more shots after I lost sight of him. I learned later that [CNP REDACTION] dropped the gun (please see the evidence technition report for information on the gun) a very short distance from where he was when I shot at him. [CNP REDACTION] was taken into custody a short time and distance later. [CNP REDACTION] was not struck by my rounds and was uninjured.16-100985/11/1620/11/2021Glew9634th WardDuty Weapon25MWBurglary, aggravated assault, and resistingResponding to officer involved shootingDaylightDNAleft emptyleft emptyleft emptyDNAleft emptyleft empty91103Glew; "Officers"NoBurglary - assisting in chase
On 03/27/16 at approximately 2036 hrs, I (Officer A. Golubski #240) arrived at [CNP REDACTION] regarding a domestic disturbance. Officer Basner #135, the primary responding Officer, had determined that [CNP REDACTION] had committed a domestic assault against his wife, [CNP REDACTION], that had occurred in the garden apartment earlier on 03/27/16. Officer Basner and I made contact with [CNP REDACTION] in the open doorway of the first floor apartment. Officer Basner told [CNP REDACTION] he was under arrest. [CNP REDACTION] then started to step backwards, back into the apartment. Both Officer Basner and I grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s arms and pulled him towards us away from the apartment. Officer Basner grabbed his right arm. I grabbed his left arm. We attempted to maneuver [CNP REDACTION]'s arms behind his back in order to place him in handcuffs. He resisted by tightening his arms in front of him and moving his body away from Officers. Both Officer Basner and I told Catuy to stop resisting several times. It became clear that Officer Basner and I would not be able to physically control [CNP REDACTION] without assistance. I requested additional Officers respond. Officer M. Mangas #194 arrived shortly after and assisted in attempting to arrest [CNP REDACTION] . Officer Mangas grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm. I let go of [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm and repositioned myself to a standing position in front of [CNP REDACTION] . Officer Mangas also told [CNP REDACTION] to stop resisting. I determined [CNP REDACTION] had to be controlled and removed from the scene as quickly as possible. I removed my taser from my holster and pointed it at [CNP REDACTION] while facing him. I yelled, "Taser, Taser, Taser." I observed [CNP REDACTION] continue to resist Officer Basner and Officer Mangas. He appeared to still be tightening his arms in front of him and attempting to pull away from Officer Basner and Officer Mangas. I deployed my taser. The probes struck [CNP REDACTION] in the chest. Officer Basner and Mangas were then able to handcuff [CNP REDACTION] and remove him from the scene.16-7833illegible12/12/2021Golubski2405th WardTaser31MBDomestic AssaultAssist Domestic Assault ArrestIndoor LightingNoneN/ARedactedN/AReynaldo Catuy (visible but refused treatment)Taser activitationRedacted2503Golubski; Basner; MangasNowife's name not redactedAlleged Domestic Assault Arrest

[EPD REDACTION] attempted to pull away and Ofc K Champion grabbed her right arm with an open hand control. [EPD REDACTION] then lunged forward and bit Sgt C Brown on the right forearm. We than took [EPD REDACTION] down to the ground to control and handcuff her. We continued to give [EPD REDACTION] commands to put her hands behind her back and she continued to resist and tense up.

In summary, but not verbatim, at the listed time I, Officer Gregory, *137, was on patrol in the area of the 600 block of Mulford, traveling W/B. Upon approaching Custer, I observed a F/W, later identified as [EPD REDACTION], screaming and trying to free her two leashed dogs from an unleashed dog that was attacking them. Upon seeing this, my partner, Officer de Leon *165 and I immediately exited our unmarked police squad, #97, to assist [EPD REDACTION]. Upon exiting, we observed a black dog actively biting and attacking [EPD REDACTION]’s two dogs. At that time, I deployed my Taser to neutralize that attacking black dog. I fired a Taser cartridge at the attacking dog, striking the dog in the back with the prongs. The Taser arced for a single cycle, at which time the attacking dog released [EPD REDACTION]’s dog. The attacking dog then withdrew and ran north and west away from the area. Upon checking with [EPD REDACTION], I observed my second Taser cartridge was deployed, and one prong was embedded in the back of [EPD REDACTION]’s dog. The dog did not appear to be suffering any ill effects.19-188103/13/1901/11/2021Gregory1378th WardTaser Deployment30N/AHDog off leashUnleashed dog attacking leashed dog on viewDaytimeNoneN/AN/AN/AN/AN/AN/A962/135752 Gregory; de.LeonNoFighting dogs - UoF used on unleashed attacking dog, which subsequently ran away

On 11/27/16, at approximately 1912 hours, Officer Demos*238 and I, Officer Griffith*193 responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a Disturbance. Upon arrival officers made contact with a combative [EPD REDACTION] later identified as [EPD REDACTION]. [EPD REDACTION] was very irate and began to throw closed fist punches at [EPD REDACTION] and responding officers. Hall was given clear and verbal commands to stop fighting. [EPD REDACTION] then kicked responding officers several times. In order to gain control, a controlled takedown maneuver was conducted in the grass of the apartment building courtyard by Officer Demos, and I. During the takedown [EPD REDACTION] was placed in a seated position with her bottom flat on the ground. I then handcuffed [EPD REDACTION] behind her back and the cuffs were fitted for tightness. EFD arrived on scene as [EPD REDACTION] was being escorted to the street. [EPD REDACTION] began to kick and responding officers made an attempt to control her legs to prevent and[sic] injuries. [EPD REDACTION] leaned forward, then quickly backwards intentionally struck me in the mouth using the back of her head. Another controlled takedown was conducted to prevent any further injuries to responding officers. During the takedown [EPD REDACTION] was placed in a seated position with her bottom flat on the ground. [EPD REDACTION] was then placed on an ambulance stretcher with the assistance of EFD. Sgt. Sophier was notified on scene about my injury. I was treated at Evanston Hospital for a lip laceration, and teeth pain.

In summary: On 10/5/19 at approximately 0520 hrs. I, Officer Hicks #251, was dispatched to a battery in progress in front of [CNP REDACTION]. Dispatched(sic) advised a M/W subject was striking a F/W subject with a belt. While I was en-route, dispatch further advised that the male offender was now walking east in the alley. On arrival, I observed two subjects known to me from previous interactions as [CNP REDACTION] and [EPD REDACTION] standing in front of 1709 Benson. [CNP REDACTION] was visibly intoxicated and bleeding heavily from several lacerations on her hands. As I exited my vehicle, both [CNP REDACTION] and [EPD REDACTION] started yelling “He went that way”, pointing east in the alley. I advised them the next officer would search for the alledged offender but I needed to speak with them first. As soon as I began speaking with [CNP REDACTION] and [EPD REDACTION], [EPD REDACTION] came walking toward us from the alley. [CNP REDACTION] and [EPD REDACTION] both advised me [EPD REDACTION] was the one who was involved in the fight with [CNP REDACTION] and was armed with a knife. Assuming [EPD REDACTION] had a knife, I pulled my taser and ordered [EPD REDACTION] to, “Put your hands on the wall”, the wall being the north side of Second Baptist Church (1717 Benson). As Officer Mangas was conducting a pat down of [EPD REDACTION], he told Mangas and I that it was [CNP REDACTION] who actually possessed two knives. At that moment [CNP REDACTION], who was standing approximately 30 feet away, ran up to [EPD REDACTION] (who was still being patted down) and began striking him on the back. Beliving(sic) [CNP REDACTION] had a knife, and fearing for the safety of [EPD REDACTION], Mangas and I; I tased [CNP REDACTION] once from approximately four feet away, the probes hitting [CNP REDACTION] on her back. A knife was later recovered from the ground near where [CNP REDACTION] was tased, and a box-cutter was recovered from her left front pants pocket.19-911310/27/1924/11/2021Griffith1938th WardHandcuffing34FBRetail TheftAssist unit on a Retail TheftLightNoneN/AEvanston Hospital, ER Dr. DoucetteN/AMelissa MackeyBattered prior to police arrival, taser deploymentN/A12222 Hicks; MangasNoReport of disturbance - UoF due to arrestee hitting another person
On 11/7/18 at approximately 0103 hours, my partner, Officer Masucci *136 and I, Officer Gustafson *120, responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a report of a man with a knife. Upon arrival, Officers Witt *147, Masucci, and I made contact with an unknown subject, later identified as [EPD REDACTION], who was in [CNP REDACTION] and was holding a silver colored knife in his right hand. [EPD REDACTION] appeared agitated as he was shouting about the [CNP REDACTION] staff members attempting to force him to go to the hospital. When contact was made with [EPD REDACTION], I gave multiple verbal commands to drop the knife. [EPD REDACTION] replied "I ain't putting this knife down." I once again ordered [EPD REDACTION] to drop the knife otherwise he would be tased. [EPD REDACTION] replied with "Oh really? I've been tased beore! Watch what happens. Tase me. Go on!" [EPD REDACTION] then struck the dresser to his right with the knife and shouted "Tase me mother fucker!" [EPD REDACTION] then crouched down in an aggressive manner with his left fist clenched and the knife in his right hand facing our direction. Due to [EPD REDACTION]'s level of agitation, repeated refusal to drop the knife, aggressive statements, and combative posture, I reasonably believed [EPD REDACTION] had the capability and intion of using the knife in his hand against myself and other Officers in the room. In order to prevent [EPD REDACTION] from causing any harm to himself, other officers, or myself, I deployed my taser which successfully struck [EPD REDACTION] in his chest and stomach area. [EPD REDACTION] subsequently fell to the ground in a backwards motion ultimately landing on his front side. Officers were able to successfully place [EPD REDACTION] in handcuffs without any further use of force. Nothing further to report at this time.18-1002411/8/1822/09/2021Gustafson1204th WardTaser DeploymentRedactedMRedactedRedactedLightClearN/AN/ARedactedN/AFred P.

On 4/28/2019 at approximately 1911 hours, my partner, Officer Gustafson *120, and I, Officer Kane *209, made contact with [CNP REDACTION], during an investigative traffic stop at [CNP REDACTION]. LEADS confirmed a valid and extraditable warrant for [CNP REDACTION]. Upon attempting to take [CNP REDACTION] into custody, he quickly backed away from Officer Gustafson and I, and while doing so, raised both of his hands in the air, which he was halding an aluminum can of beans at the time in his right hand, in an aggressive manner, placing me in reasonable fear of being struck by [CNP REDACTION]. I, Officer Kane, performed a closed fist strike using my right hand subsequently connecting with [CNP REDACTION]'s right forehead area causing a laceration to his right eyebrow. I immediately called for medical assistance and Evanston Fire Department personnel arrived on scene and [CNP REDACTION] was transported to St. Francis Hospital where he was treated. Nothing further at this time.19-335604/28/1907/12/2021Gustafson1208th Wardleft empty43MBAggravated Assault to Police Officer, Driving while Suspended, WarrantsTraffic StopLightedCarl Gustafson *120, Kane *209During Use of Force take down, during Use of Force closed fist strikeSt. Francis Emergency Room by Dr. IglesiasRedactedKeith D.

In summary on 01/10/2017 at approximately 1545 hours Officer Schienbein # and I, Officer Harvey #133 were assisting Officer Keeler #148 with an intoxicated subject, now identified as [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION], in front of [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] was being placed in handcuffs by Officer Keeler when I arrived on scene. I assisted Officer Keeler with handcuffing [CNP REDACTION] and conducted a search due to Officer Keeler not having a caged squad car and me being the transporting squad car. While searching [CNP REDACTION] I detected a strong alcoholic beverage coming from his breath and observed that [CNP REDACTION] was having difficult maintaining balance on his own. I then grasped [CNP REDACTION] by his right arm and gave [CNP REDACTION] verbal direction to head toward my squad car. [CNP REDACTION] then began to resist by pulling his right arm away from my grasp. I then used level 2 non-impact control techniques by me grasping the right arm of [CNP REDACTION] with my left hand and placing my right hand on [CNP REDACTION]'s upper right shoulder while Officer Keeler grasped [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm and assisted him to my squad car. Upon opening the rear door to my squad car [CNP REDACTION] again resisted by pushing back against us refusing to enter the vehicle. I once again gave [CNP REDACTION] verbal commands to get into the squad care while using soft empty hand controls by using my left hand to hold [CNP REDACTION]'s shoulder and place my left forearm across the top of his back to prevent [CNP REDACTION] from falling backwards and to keep [CNP REDACTION] from breaking my grasp. At this point [CNP REDACTION] lunged forward into the squad car head first. Officer Keeler and I assisted [CNP REDACTION] with sitting up, he was secured with a seatbelt, and transported to Evanston Police Department without further incident. While seatbelting [CNP REDACTION] I did not notice any injury to him. While I removed [CNP REDACTION] from my squad car I noticed a small pool of blood on the seat and a [EPD REDACTION] Evanston Fire Department was contacted and Ortiz was transported to [EPD REDACTION] without incident. It is likely that Ortiz sustained the [EPD REDACTION] from the receiver of the seat belt buckle which protrudes from the plastic seating.17-3021/10/1722/11/2021Harvey1333rd WardNonimpact Control Techniques55MWPedestrian under the influence of alcohol Possession of open alcoholAssignmentDaylightDNAleft emptyRedactedleft emptyHector N.

[CNP REDACTION] jumped over the fence at [CNP REDACTION] in an effort to elude us. I shouted "stop, Police" and pursued Retreage on foot. I ran out of the alley eastbound onto Lemar and observed [CNP REDACTION] running eastbound from the backyard of the fence he jumped over as well. Due to [CNP REDACTION] disobeying my commands to stop while stating my position as a Police Officer along with the possibility of [CNP REDACTION] having a firearm, I had to physically tackle [CNP REDACTION] to the ground. While on the ground I landed on top of [CNP REDACTION] and controlled his arms by bringing them around his back and preventing him from reaching for any type of weapon he may have had on him or to restrain him from any further resistance.

In summary Officer Burgers #227 and I, Officer Harvey #133 transported [CNP REDACTION] from EPD to Skokie courthouse to be transferred over to Cook County Sherrifs for bond court. During the transfer [CNP REDACTION] stated to the Shariff that his write wrist was bleeding. I observed a minor scratch on his right wrist with a very minor amount of dry blood on the scratch. A body sheet was completed and turned over to Cook County Sheriff personnel. [CNP REDACTION] was accepted by CCSP and he refused medical attention stating that he was fine to go to court. It should be noted that once we arrived at Skokie Courthouse and were awaiting the Sheriff transportation bus, Mason was continuously moving around and shifting. At one point I had to get out of my squad car and open the rear door to find out why he was constantly moving around. [CNP REDACTION] stated he was just trying to put his hood on. I noticed that [CNP REDACTION] had disconnected his seatbelt as well. [CNP REDACTION] may have sustained this minor scrape due to his constant moving while being handcuffed. Proper handcuff technique was used prior to transport (double locked, checked for tension by being able to insert my index finger between [CNP REDACTION]'s wrist and the handcuff. At no point did [CNP REDACTION] make a statement to Officer Burgers or myself that the handcuffs were too tight or that he was having discomfort in his wrist due to the handcuffs. The initial handcuffing along with transport was all captured on my personal body camera along with the squad car body camera. [CNP REDACTION] was turned over to CCSP without any further incident.18-1049311/20/1811/10/2021Harvey133SkokieHandcuffing29MBPublic IndecencyAssignment/Prisoner TransportDuskDNAleft emptyMedical treatment refused and documented of the refusalleft emptyAnton T.

On 2-23-18 at approx. 1430 hours, suspect [CNP REDACTION], resisted arrest for Strong Arm Robbery (later changed to Theft) in front of [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] ignored repeated verbal commands to stop running. [CNP REDACTION] also ignored repeated verbal commands to put his hands behind his back and resisted arrest. Due to the fact that I, Ofc. Henderson *110, was alone and smaller in stature than [CNP REDACTION], I struck [CNP REDACTION] in the face one time, with a closed fist, in order to gain compliance to effect an arrest. There were no visible injuries to [CNP REDACTION]'s face and he refused medical attention. See Field General for further details.

On 07/28/2019 at approximately 0242 hours, I, Officer Herrera *195 was dispatched to [CNP REDACTION] to process the scene for a criminal damage to property report. Upon arrival I spoke with Officer Pack *234 who stated that he was advised by complainant, [EPD REDACTION], that the offenders were still on scene. [EPD REDACTION] advised that the offenders forced the front door to the CTA station and were now on the third rail car to the south bound train. Officer Pack *234 and I walked up to the platform where [EPD REDACTION] pointed out the two offenders. I made contact with [CNP REDACTION] and took him into custody for criminal damage to property. The handcuffs were double locked and checked for fit. I walked Watson out of the rail car and onto the platform. Officer Hicks *251 arrived and searched [CNP REDACTION]. I went back onto the train to retrieve their belongings. When I returned, I observed [CNP REDACTION] attempting to use his cellphone while in handcuffs and Officers Pack *234 and Hicks *251 were trying to take the cellphone out of his hands. [CNP REDACTION] tightened his grip on his cellphone and tensed his arms up. I put their belongings on the ground and attempted to take the cellphone out of [CNP REDACTION]'s hands. Officer Pack *234 was able to successfully take the phone out of [CNP REDACTION]'s hand. Officer Pack *234 and Hicks *251 walked [CNP REDACTION] to Officer Pack’s squad car. [CNP REDACTION] did not complain of wrist pain/injury while on scene at the CTA and did not request medical attention. The incident was captured on my body worn camera and was reviewed prior to writing this report.

On 4/16/16 at approximately 2225 hrs. I, Detective B. Hicks #251, during an arrest for battery to police officer, pulled the suspect back toward me at which point she fell. The suspect, [CNP REDACTION], while in handcuffs, and under arrest, tried to abruptly return to her vehicle which contained her boyfriend, [CNP REDACTION], and her two small children. Viewing this as an officer safety issue, I pulled [CNP REDACTION] back to me. [CNP REDACTION] resisted and tried to break free from my grip, causing me to pull harder. [CNP REDACTION] tripped over her own feet and fell onto the front of my squad car. [CNP REDACTION] got back up apparently uninjured.16-877804/12/1620/12/2021Hicks2518th WardEmpty hand control technique21FBBattery to PO, obstructing identification, trafficOn-viewOutdoors, dark (lighted street)DNADNADNADNADNADNANo injuries1702Hicks; "Officer"NoAlleged Battery to Officer
On 5/26/19 at approximately 0252 hours, I, OFC Niedziela *118, was assisting in the search for an offender of a criminal trespass/commercial burglary investigation to a construction site located at [CNP REDACTION]. My partner, OFC Triggs, and I, were in out marked patrol vehicle driving in the area of [CNP REDACTION] attempting to locate the outstanding suspect when OFC Hicks notified units in the area via radio transmission he located the subject in the courtyard of [CNP REDACTION]. As my partner and I pulled up to the location I exited our patrol vehicle and observed the suspect, [CNP REDACTION] leeing east bound from the courtyard of [CNP REDACTION]. I gave chase behind [CNP REDACTION] as he fled east bound on [CNP REDACTION]. with OFC Servatius ahead of me. I deployed my taser (2) times at [CNP REDACTION] in the [CNP REDACTION]. as he fled east bound. It did not appear that either of my taser deployments struck [CNP REDACTION] as he continued to flee in the east alley of [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] tripped over his own feet as he ran and was placed into custody at [CNP REDACTION] by OFC Servatius as I assisted him. I was able to locate both of my deployed taser wires in the alley where [CNP REDACTION] was arrested but I only located (1) of the two prongs. OFC Kozlowski collected by(sic) spent taser wires and cartridges. It should be noted I reviewed my body worn camera footage prior to this report but did not review my body warn(sic) camera footage prior to my supplemental report.

On 10/05/19, at approximately 1612 hours, Detective Popp*116 and I, Detective Griffith*193 conducted a street stop on a male/black subject matching the description of an offender involved in a Retail Theft at [CNP REDACTION]. The male subject later identified as [CNP REDACTION] was stopped in the area of [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] appeared highly intoxicated. While conducting our investigation, [CNP REDACTION] became uncooperative and verbally aggressive. [CNP REDACTION] was placed in handcuffs for officer safety. [CNP REDACTION]'s right wrist was cuffed first followed by his left wrist. While cuffing [CNP REDACTION] he tensed up multiple times in an attempt to avoid being handcuffed. After securing the handcuffs on [CNP REDACTION], Detective Popp double locked the handcuffs, and the cuffs were fitted for tightness.

In summary: On 11/21/19 at approximately 0105 hrs. I, Officer Pack #234, was dispatched to a disturbance at [CNP REDACTION]. The caller told dispatch her husband was attempting to break down the door to her apartment [CNP REDACTION]. Upon arrival, Officers Hicks, Romero, Hindes and I arrived in the fourth floor hallway simultaneously and observed a subject, later identified as [CNP REDACTION] outside the door of [CNP REDACTION] yelling and banging on the door. I instructed [CNP REDACTION] to show his hands, [CNP REDACTION] said, “Let you see my hands?” and began aggressively banging on the door with his hands and feet in an attempt to gain entry into the apartment. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION] in an attempt to gain compliance, but [CNP REDACTION] resisted. I then took [CNP REDACTION] to the ground. [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist and refused to be handcuffed. [CNP REDACTION] had a puffy winter coat on and it appeared as if he was attempting to put his hands in his pockets. [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist and attempted to go in his jacket pockets as he was still actively resisting. Subsequently, I used a closed fist and delivered a stunning blow to the large muscle group of [CNP REDACTION]'s upper back while giving commands for him to stop resisting. I was eventually able to gain control of [CNP REDACTION]'s arms and place him in handcuffs. See other Officer’s supplements and reports for further information.19-1057211/21/1922/09/2021Hicks2514th WardTaser30MBleft emptyRadio dispatchIndoors, lightedNoneN/AEvanston Hospital, ER Dr. GowarN/AErick M.

On 2/26/18 at approximately 1816 hours, I, Detective Holliman *150 and partner Detective Rosenbaum *161, curbed a gray colored KIA bearing Illinois license plate [EPD REDACTION] at [CNP REDACTION] for a traffic violation. Upon making contact with the driver, identified as [CNP REDACTION], who I knew to have an active warrant, he was asked to exit the vehicle. Upon [CNP REDACTION] exiting the vehicle, he was asked to place his hands behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] did not comply. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm to gain control of it and to place him in handcuffs. [CNP REDACTION] immediately locked his arms and refused to place his hands behind his back. As I attempted to place [CNP REDACTION]'s hands behind his back, I gave him a verbal command to not fight. I was then able to place one handcuff on [CNP REDACTION]'s left wrist, where he then began to actively resist by flailing his arms, spinning his body and snatching his right hand away from Detective Rosenbaum. While [CNP REDACTION] was actively resisting, I continued to give him loud verbal commands to stop resisting and to place his hands behind his back. While [CNP REDACTION] was attempting to defeat the arrest I attempted an arm bar take down, while still maintaining control of the handcuff, which was un-successful. [CNP REDACTION] then momentarily stopped actively resisting, but still refusing to place his hands behind his back he was instructed to go down to the ground, he did not comply. [CNP REDACTION] then began to actively resist again by attempting to turn his body, flail his arms and snatching away from Detective Rosenbaum and I. I continued to give [CNP REDACTION] loud verbal commands to stop resisting and I advised him if he did not comply he would be tasered. [CNP REDACTION] continued to actively resist until he was tasered by Detective Rosenbaum. Upon completion of the electrical cycle, [CNP REDACTION] voluntarily placed his hands behind his back, where I was able to place the second handcuff on [CNP REDACTION]'s right wrist.

On 1/16/16, at approximately 1458 hrs, I, Ofc. Howard #126 responded to the area of [CNP REDACTION] for an attempt burglary assignment. While en route, officers advised us that they were in foot pursuit with a M/[EPD REDACTION] offender wearing a grey coat. We were then advised that the offender was running towards [CNP REDACTION]. While driving S/B on [CNP REDACTION], I observed a subject matching the description running S/B on the sidewalk. I stopped the car and exited my vehicle in pursuit of the subject. I chased the offender W/B towards Fleetwood-Jourdain. I yelled to the offender, "Stop Running"! He continued to run and I was able to catch up with him at the tennis court outside of the facility. I grabbed the offender and pulled him down to the ground. At this time, the offender was on his back. Once I was able to get control of the offender, I gave commands for him to turn over on his stomach. Finally after he was turned over on his stomach, I handcuffed him and pulled him off the ground by grabbing his arm.16-14281/22/1620/11/2021Howard1264th WardTakedownRedactedMRedactedAttempt BurglaryRadio assignment for burglary in progressLightOfc.

On Thursday, 07/06/2017 at approximately 11:25 hrs I, Ofc. Huber #180 responded to the area of [CNP REDACTION] in reference to a disturbance. Communications advised a subject fled the St. Francis Hospital intensive care unit against hospital staff consent. Communications further advised the subject [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] had been involuntarily committed to the hospital for an attempt-suicide. [CNP REDACTION] was observed running on the CTA tracks westbound from Ridge. At this time I exited my squad car to assist. I engaged [CNP REDACTION] in a foot pursuit, while in full uniform, along the CTA tracks. It should be noted the pursuit lasted at least a quarter of a mile, beginning around 900 block of Mulford and ending at the 1600 block. The outdoor temperature was approximately 90 degrees. I began to feel exhaustion from the high temperature and physical exertion. Evanston Police Officers advised over the radio [CNP REDACTION] had a tendency to be violent. I gave [CNP REDACTION] multiple verbal commands to stop running. [CNP REDACTION] refused to do so. At one point a CTA train was east bound toward [CNP REDACTION] and me on the CTA tracks. [CNP REDACTION] looked at the train and diverted his course in the direction of the train. I screamed, "Don't do it" and [CNP REDACTION] diverted his attention back to me and continued fleeing westbound on the CTA Tracks. Eventually [CNP REDACTION] diverted his path south toward heavy vegetation alone the 200 Block Florence. I entered the vegetation after [CNP REDACTION]. The vegetation's growth was such that I could not see [CNP REDACTION] and the height of the vegetation was approximately 8 feet tall. A fence approximately 8 feet tall to the south and the CTA tracks to the north prevented fellow Officers from reaching my location. I gave [CNP REDACTION] verbal commands not to move. At this time I observed [CNP REDACTION] swing at me through the vegetation. I deployed my Taser striking [CNP REDACTION] in the right torso. [CNP REDACTION] did not appear to be affected however, he started to comply with my verbal commands. I held [CNP REDACTION] at Taser point until assisting Officers arrived to handcuff [CNP REDACTION]. [last line redacted]17-65807/6/1704/11/2021Huber1808th WardTaser Deployment34MBNo charges placed.

On 05/16/2018 at 1151 hours, I (Det W Hunt *121) was contacted via cellular phone by Assistant Principal Diona Lewis of Haven Middle School. Diona stated to me that she needed me outside by the basketball courts on the school grounds immediately. While en route from my office inside Haven, I observed Diona, along with the Assistant Principal Amy Wharton and Social Worker Geri Helfand, standing over [EPD REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] was sitting on the ground at that time. As I got closer, [EPD REDACTION] had gotten to his feet, and he appeared to be going after another student. Diona, Amy, and Geri were all attempting to hold him back. I could see [EPD REDACTION] resisting them attempting to hold him, and he was disobeying their commands to stop resisting. Upon my arrival, I grabbed [EPD REDACTION] by the left arm as Diona was holding [EPD REDACTION] by the right arm. [EPD REDACTION] refused our request to calm down. I then stated to Diona that I was putting [EPD REDACTION] on the ground to better control him. As Diona continued to hold [EPD REDACTION] right arm and I am holding the left, I tripped [EPD REDACTION] with my right leg, causing him to loose balance. Diona and I laid [EPD REDACTION] on the ground, on his stomach. I held [EPD REDACTION] on the ground with my hands on his back. [EPD REDACTION] began to yell, "Get off me". I stated to [EPD REDACTION] that once he calmed down, I would get off of him. Within seconds of my command, [EPD REDACTION] stopped resisting and laid on his stomach. I then took my hands off of [EPD REDACTION] He continued to lie on his stomach until the Social Worker was able to convince him to get up and come to the building. Once [EPD REDACTION] got off the ground, the staff and I were able to walk him into the school, and into the principal's officer without incident. I then learned that [EPD REDACTION] had been in a fight with a student prior to my arrival. [EPD REDACTION] mother was contacted by Diona, but she refused to come to the school. The school's heath clerk informed me that she did a check of [EPD REDACTION] and he had no physical injury. She did state that [EPD REDACTION] had complained about is eye hurting from being punched during the fight. It should be noted that the E.T. Scheck arrived on scene to take photographs of Diona, who got injured on the [EPD REDACTION] attempting to restrain [EPD REDACTION]. I contacted Sgt Jason Garner to make him aware of this incident. I also completed a use of force report due to me having to take [EPD REDACTION] to the ground.

In summary but not verbatim: On 04/12/16 at approx. 0925Hrs I, OFC Jacobs, was on scene at [CNP REDACTION] for a check the well-being of a subject, [EPD REDACTION]. During my conversation with [EPD REDACTION] he became more agitated and was twitching and getting louder. He stated that he was not going to go to the hospital with anyone. I contacted dispatch and asked for Evanston Fire to respond for an involuntary committal. I continue to talk to Johnson and attempted to calm him down. [EPD REDACTION] was asked to step into the hallway and he refused. I moved behind [EPD REDACTION] to prevent him from gaining access to unsearched areas of the apartment. He then asked for his coat. I told him I would retrieve it for him. [EPD REDACTION] began yelling and said "I'll get my fucking coat". He then pushed me in the chest with his hand, shoving me to the side. [EPD REDACTION] was attempting to reach for his coat, which had not been searched. I then used open hand techniques grabbing [EPD REDACTION] about the upper body along with Ofc Gonzalez #172 in an attempt to secure his arms. I was concerned that he was attempting to grab a weapon or flee. I gave verbal commands repeatedly telling him, "stop resisting, stop fighting". He was yelling and said, "No, I'm not going". He was an immediate threat to our safety as well as the staff on scene if he was able to break free and flee. We fell onto the bed and rolled to the floor. [EPD REDACTION] was on top of Ofc Gonzalez and actively fighting by pulling his arms and tensing his muscles in an attempt to free himself from our grasp. I gave verbal commands and told him "stop resisting or I will tase you." [EPD REDACTION] refused to comply. I then activated the safety switch on my Taser (CEW) and deployed the CEW pointing it at the upper torso and pulling the trigger initiating a 5-second cycle. The prongs deployed into the subject's right bicep. The Neuro-Muscular Incapacitation was sufficient enough to gain compliance. I continued to give verbal commands and told him to roll over and put his hands behind his back. [EPD REDACTION] complied. He was handcuffed because he was a risk to his safety and ours. He then listened to all verbal commands and stayed on the ground calmly and waited until paramedics arrive to remove the prongs. EFD Paramedics were already enroute to our location.

In summary but not verbatim: on 04/19/16 at approx. 1354Hrs I, OFC Jacobs, was on scene at [CNP REDACTION] for a premise check along with backup officer George Gonzalez #114. Upon arrival I observed a subject, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], pulling wires out of the house. He stated that he was a contractor working on the site. During the course of my investigation we had moved into the home. I discovered [CNP REDACTION] did not have permission to be on the property. [CNP REDACTION] was sitting on the step in the front livingroom. I told him, "you are under arrest" and asked him to stand up an put his hands behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] was smoking a cigarette and asked if could go outside to put it out. I believed this was an attempt to get outside, so he could flee. I told [CNP REDACTION] that he is under arrest. I asked him to please put out the cigarette and turn around. [CNP REDACTION] disregarded my order and stepped backward behind a small table, located in the northeast corner of the room, creating distance between OFC Gonzalez and myself. I believe this was an attempt to gain separation. He then stated, "this isn't going to go well for you guys". At this time I un-holstered my conducted electrical weapon, CEW (Taser), and told him again he is under arrest. [CNP REDACTION] ignored my direct orders and retreated, reaching with both hands toward his right hip. He was physically trying to defeat the arrest and I believed he was attempting to access a weapon on his person. I aimed at [CNP REDACTION]'s upper torso and pulled the trigger on the CEW and it did not deploy because I did not active the safety switch. I then activated the safety switch on my CEW while still aiming at [CNP REDACTION]'s upper torso. I pulled the trigger initiating a 5-second cycle. The prongs deployed into [CNP REDACTION]'s chest. The Neuro-Muscular Incapacitation was insufficient to gain compliance. [CNP REDACTION]e pulled a gun from his right side and pointed it directly at me while the CEW was still cycling. After the CEW finished the cycle I tossed the CEW to the ground and transitioned to my handgun as [CNP REDACTION] turned and ran up the stairs directly behind him.16-1009805/04/1613/11/2021Jacobs2484th WardTaser25MWBurglary, Agg AssaultRadio assignmentdim sunlitDNADNANoneDNANoneNoneNone923122Jacobs; GonzalezNoBurglary - Fired Taser when verbally threatened

Benoit @129 responded to the area of [CNP REDACTION] reference a report of a large group of juveniles who might be about to fight. Upon our arrival, we observed two female juveniles (later identified as [EPD REDACTION] and [EPD REDACTION]). Benoit was able to place [EPD REDACTION] in custody, however [EPD REDACTION] continued to attempt to push past myself and [EPD REDACTION]. I took [EPD REDACTION] by her arm, and attempted to handcuff her, however she attempted to pull away from me and aggressively lunged towards an unknown party. At that point, I tripped [EPD REDACTION] with my foot, causing her to loose[sic] her balance, and took her to the ground. I was then able to place her in handcuffs without further incident.

On 02/01/16 at approx. 1430hrs. I, OFC. N. Jones 215 responded to the intersection of [CNP REDACTION] for a report of a Domestic disturbance. The caller/reporter [EPD REDACTION] related to dispatch her son [CNP REDACTION] was arguing with his girlfriend [EPD REDACTION] in her car and that her 3 year old grandson [EPD REDACTION] was also in the car. Upon my arrival I observed [CNP REDACTION] to be visibly irritated and rocking as well as yelling at [EPD REDACTION] while in the backseat with [EPD REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] exited the vehicle and yelled to me "She ain't going nowhere!" and he aggressively approached the passenger side of the vehicle where [EPD REDACTION] was seated. I ordered [CNP REDACTION] to step away from the vehicle and he responded by yelling "No fuck you I don't gotta do shit you say." [CNP REDACTION] than began yelling at [EPD REDACTION] standing over her while she was still seated in the vehicle. Worried for [EPD REDACTION] safety due to [CNP REDACTION]'s increasingly erratic and aggressive behavior I placed my hand on [CNP REDACTION]'s arm in order to guide him away from the vehicle to which he responded "Don't touch me!" and he pulled away. [CNP REDACTION] then began to remove his jacket, shirt and took a stance I recognized to be a fighting stance. [CNP REDACTION] began pacing and clenching his fists. [CNP REDACTION] began to close the distance between us causing me to be in fear of receiving a battery to which I responded by deploying OC spray (Oleoresin Capsicum) to [CNP REDACTION]'s eyes. [CNP REDACTION] then stated "That shit don't work on me!" and began to step back and run to the other side of the vehicle.16-283802/01/1617/11/2021Jones2158th WardOC Spray (Pepper Spray)21MBResisting Arrest, Aggravated AssaultDomestic Disturbance assignmentDaylightNoneRedactedHenry KurtisOC SprayRedacted2701JonesNoDomestic Disturbance - yelling and anger

In summary, Detective Svendsen #164 and I Detective Jones #162 was assigned an endangered missing person report. On 11/19/19 at approximately 1300 hours, reporter [EPD REDACTION] advised that [CNP REDACTION] had been missing since [CNP REDACTION]. [EPD REDACTION] stated that on today’s date [CNP REDACTION], [CNP REDACTION] text messaged her with suicidal statements. In the text messages, [CNP REDACTION] told [EPD REDACTION] that all of his belongings will remain in his vehicle when he is found and tell his kids that he loved them. [CNP REDACTION] also provided [EPD REDACTION] with information about his UPS mailbox that is located in Evanston. [EPD REDACTION] stated that [CNP REDACTION] takes prescription medication for depression and pain. [EPD REDACTION] stated that [CNP REDACTION] has told her on several occasions that he owns several firearms and has a valid FOID card. [EPD REDACTION] advised that [CNP REDACTION] is driving a white Chevy Equinox vehicle which has an enabled On-Star system. I called On-Star and retrieved updated vehicle location for the Chevy Equinox. The initial data revealed that the vehicle was mobile in [CNP REDACTION]. As Detective Svendsen and I were heading to [CNP REDACTION] to check on [CNP REDACTION]'s well-being, On-Star related that the vehicle was driving westbound on [CNP REDACTION]. Several moments later, Detective Svendsen and I was able to locate the vehicle [CNP REDACTION]. At the time the vehicle was curbed. As I approached the vehicle, I advised the driver ([CNP REDACTION] to place his hands on the steering wheel. I advised [CNP REDACTION] that he was reported missing. The vehicle was occupied by a male front passenger and another driver sitting in the back seat behind the driver’s side. [CNP REDACTION] began to shift around inside the vehicle and I advised him to exit the vehicle due to his suspicious movements and the uncertainty that he was in possession of the above mentioned firearms. When [CNP REDACTION] exited the vehicle I advised him to place his hand on top of his head. [CNP REDACTION] ignored my demands and attempted to re-enter the vehicle. I advised [CNP REDACTION] that he was being taken to the hospital for a mental evaluation and which he stated that I don’t have jurisdiction to make him go to the hospital. At this time [CNP REDACTION] attempted to re-enter his vehicle and Detective Svendsen and I attempted to place handcuffs on [CNP REDACTION] to prevent him from the vehicle driving away, endangering himself and the other people that were inside the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] became aggressive and combative and ignored my command to not enter the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] was given a reasonable opportunity to voluntarily comply with my orders, in which he refused. I provided [CNP REDACTION] and Detective Svensden a warning that my Taser devise will be deployed. I deployed my Taser targeting the lower center mass area. The first deployment struck the exterior of [CNP REDACTION]'s puffy coat, giving [CNP REDACTION] the opportunity to turn his back and run. I deployment(sic) the second application which caused [CNP REDACTION] to fall to the grass and comply. [CNP REDACTION] was handcuffed, secured and transported to Evanston Hospital. [CNP REDACTION] did not sufer any injuries due to the arrest or Taser deployment.19-1051411/25/1917/11/2021Jones162NorthbrookTaser55MWNoneMissing Endangered person Follow-UpBright/OutdoorsNoneN/AN/AN/AN/AN/AN/A1162 Jones; SvendsenNoUoF used due to noncompliance
On 04-25-2018 at approximately 0817, Patrol Officers radioed that a silver Hyundai with IL plate [EPD REDACTION] occupied by several individuals had just fled West from their stop, leaving the scene at [CNP REDACTION]. Det. Tamburrino and I were in the area of Main and Hartrey in our unmarked police squad (85) when Ofc. Serviss radioed that he just witnessed the suspect vehicle crash into a building at [CNP REDACTION]. I could see the crashed vehicle ahead of us and then witnessed a white male running on the sidewalk Westbound from the area of the crash. Det. Tamburrino stopped our squad in front of the suspect male, who then turned and attempted to run around our squad from us. I exited my squad car and saw the suspect male was now face down on the boulevard. The suspect male rolled his body and swung his arms away from me, Officer Serviss and Det. Tamburrino. While attempting to place the suspect into handcuffs, he pulled his arms from our grasps. Loud - direct orders were given to the suspect male to stop resisting. During the continued struggle, I heard Ofc. Serviss shout that the man was trying to take his (Serviss') gun. I chose to deploy my department issued Taser (Electronic Control Weapon - ECW) at the man, striking him in the right side of his torso. The Taser appeared to have minimal, if no effect on the man, to comply with commands to stop resisting. Additional Officers arrive on scene as the man continued to thrust his body away from us. Multiple Officers were needed to aid in securing the man in handcuffs.18-34164/25/1822/10/2021Just1902nd WardTaser Deployment 26P (#25)28MWPendingOn-viewDaylightC. Just *190, C. Tamburrino *123, S.

On 06-01-2018 at approximately 1043 I, Detective C. Just *190, heard dispatch radio that a male subject, possibly a juvenile, had run into the road at Emerson and Hartrey and been struck by a vehicle. I went to the area and located an injured adult male black sitting on the curb speaking with Evanston Officers. I made contact with a woman who identified herself as a witness who stated she was driving Westbound on Emerson when she saw the adult male roll from a vehicle that was proceeding Eastbound on Emerson. The witness, [EPD REDACTION], told me that she saw the man's head hit the ground in the middle of the roadway. While I was speaking further with [EPD REDACTION] I saw the man, later identified as [EPD REDACTION] stand up and begin to stumble away on foot [EPD REDACTION] ran West into the road, away from Officers requesting that he remain on scene for medical attention. [EPD REDACTION] continued running West in the roadway, then suddenly approach the driver's side door of a light colored sedan that was stopped in traffic due to the incident. I witnessed [EPD REDACTION] pull back on the driver's side door handle to enter the occupied vehicle, however the door did not open and [EPD REDACTION] continued to run West in the middle of the roadway. Due to the increased public safety risk of [EPD REDACTION] attempting to enter an occupied vehicle, I pursued [EPD REDACTION] on foot and caught up to him in front of [CNP REDACTION]. I drew my department issued Electronic Control Weapon (Taser) and identified myself as an Evanston Police Officer. I gave several loud, clear directions to [EPD REDACTION] to get on the ground. [EPD REDACTION] paused for several seconds, then lowered himself onto the ground but rolled his body away from Officers. I directed [EPD REDACTION] to lay face down but he refused. Ofc. Sosa was able to secure one handcuff on [EPD REDACTION] left arm before [EPD REDACTION] swung his right arm toward me. [EPD REDACTION] then used his right arm to push away from being secured and then kicked his legs out. I loudly told [EPD REDACTION] to stop resisting otherwise he would be tased. [EPD REDACTION] continued to swing his body away from Ofc. Sosa and he refused directions to comply. Due to [EPD REDACTION] continued physical resistance, I deployed my Taser and made contact with [EPD REDACTION] The Taser appeared to have little effect as a result of the deployment and he continued to pull away from Officers. [EPD REDACTION] rolled his body away from Officers and rose to his knees. [EPD REDACTION] maintained his refusal to comply and swung his arms from Officers. In yet another effort to secure [EPD REDACTION] I deployed my Taser again (drive stun), and [EPD REDACTION] rolled onto his stomach. Multiple Officers were now on scene to assist in placing [EPD REDACTION] arms behind his back to secure him in handcuffs as he continued to pull his arms from being secured. Once secured in handcuffs, I observed [EPD REDACTION] snap his head toward the leg of Sgt. Bush and bite his pant. [EPD REDACTION] was transported via ambulance to Post 10 for medical treatment. During the struggle to secure [EPD REDACTION], multiple Officers (including Ofc. Sosa) made contact with [EPD REDACTION] blood, including myself. I completed an Injury on Duty Report and a Use of Force Report.18-46586/1/1831/10/2021Just1905th WardTaser Deployment 26P (#25)49MBRedactedOn-viewDaylightC.

In summary, but not verbatim, on 06-13-16 at approximately 0039 hours, I, Ofc Kane #209 and my partner Ofc Rosenbaum #161 were dispatched to [CNP REDACTION] for a domestic disturbance involving an in-progress criminal damage to vehicle. Upon arrival, my partner and I observed the suspect, later identified as [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] striking the front passenger side window of a black in color Ford Explorer with closed fists (vehicle bearing IL registration: [EPD REDACTION]. My partner and I immediately exited our vehicle and gave loud and clear verbal commands to [CNP REDACTION] to stop hitting the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] turned towards us, raised both of her middle fingers, yelled "fuck you" and began to walk away. My partner and I continued to give loud and clear verbal commands for her to stop walking away. I then observed a subject on the porch of [CNP REDACTION], later identified as her brother, [CNP REDACTION], point at [CNP REDACTION], and state "please stop her." [CNP REDACTION] subsequently refused to listen to all of our commands, even after I told her she was going to be detained for a criminal damage to vehicle investigation. [CNP REDACTION] kept walking away, at which point I grabbed her right arm, in which she immediately swung both arms aggressively away from me, resisting my arrest. I then conducted a double-leg take down on [CNP REDACTION] , bringing her to the ground (grass), subsequently giving my partner and me a better position for an arrest technique. [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist, by stiffening her arms and aggressively rolling her body side to side. I then conducted an empty hand control tactic with joint manipulation to place her arms in a position, where I could safely and securely handcuff [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] did not appear to have any visible injuries and refused all medical attention. Jessica was transported by my partner and I to the Evanston Police Department for processing.16-1621506/13/1605/10/2021Kane2095th WardTake down26FBResisting a Police Officer - 720 ALCS 5/31-1(a) - Class A Misd. -- 2 countsDomestic Disturbance & Criminal Damage -- Dispatched Service CallDark with streets lightsNoneN/AN/AN/AN/AN/AN/A1002Kane; RosenbaumNobrother's name is not redactedRadio response to Criminal Damage to property (Sister striking brother's car with fist)

Driver, [CNP REDACTION] opened the driver door and began to walk away from the vehicle. My partner and I immediately exited our vehicle and gave loud and clear verbal commands to [CNP REDACTION] to stop. We quickly approached the subject and conducted a protective pat down due to his evasive manners. Evanston Police Dispatch then informed me that [CNP REDACTION] has a suspended Illinois Driver’s License. [CNP REDACTION] was then informed that he was under arrest for driving on a suspended license and was instructed to place his hands behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] began to actively resist arrest by pulling his body away from us, placing his hands towards his chest, clenching his fists, and refusing to place his hands behind his back. My partner and I then gave [CNP REDACTION] multiple verbal commands to stop resisting and conducted a take down to the ground. I then conducted and empty hand control tactic to place his arms in a position, where I could safely and securely handcuff [CNP REDACTION].

LEADS confirmed a valid and extraditable warrant for [CNP REDACTION] . Upon attempting to take [CNP REDACTION] into custody, he quickly backed away from Officer Kane and I, and while doing so, raised both of his hands in the air, which he was holding an aluminum can of beans at the time in his right hand, in an aggressive manner, placing Officer Kane in reasonable fear of being struck by [CNP REDACTION]. Officer Kane performed a closed fist strike using his right hand to [CNP REDACTION]'s upper portion of the face. I reacted to the situation by assisting [CNP REDACTION] to the ground with my arms wrapped around his upper torso.

In summary unless otherwise stated: On 1/21/16 at approximately 14:39 hrs, I was assigned to a vehicle crash investigation where both parties were waiting in the rear parking lot of [CNP REDACTION]. After speaking with the caller, identified as [EPD REDACTION], I approached the second party involved who identified himself as [EPD REDACTION]. He advised that he was transporting students home from school at the time of the crash. I then observed a juvenile subject, later identified as [EPD REDACTION], who was the only other passenger in [EPD REDACTION]'s vehicle. After obtaining [EPD REDACTION]'s information and statement, I approached [EPD REDACTION] who already appeared to be agitated and was using profanity, and asked his age and if he was hurt or required medical attention. [EPD REDACTION] stated that he was seventeen (17) and did not require medical attention. I then advised [EPD REDACTION] that I was completing an accident report and required his name and contact information for the report. [EPD REDACTION] refused and stated, "I'm not giving you my name." I then explained a second time that I required his name for the report for insurance and documentation purposes only. [EPD REDACTION] then stated, "[EPD REDACTION]. You know what? Fuck that, I'm not giving you my name." I then advised [EPD REDACTION] that he is required to provide his name and contact information for the report, and he cannot leave without parental consent due to the fact that he is a minor. [EPD REDACTION] replied, "Fuck this, I'm just gonna walk home." I then immediately requested a supervisor at my location. [EPD REDACTION] then began walking away from the location at which time I ordered him to stop immediately. [Redacted} refused, at which time I grasped onto his upper, right arm and ordered him to stop, and return to his vehicle. [EPD REDACTION] stated, "Don't grab me" and pulled his arm away from me, faced me, and took a fighting stance. I grabbed his right arm a second time, turned his body facing away from me, and guided him back to his vehicle where I ordered him to face the vehicle, and not to move. [EPD REDACTION] then pulled his arm away from me and swung his elbow toward my face as he turned to his right to face me at which time he took a fighting stance. I then advised [EPD REDACTION] again, that he could not leave without parental consent and ordered him to walk to my police vehicle where he would be seated in the back seat to prevent him from fleeing. [EPD REDACTION] refused to comply with my orders at which time I grabbed his right arm, turned his body facing away from me, and maneuvered his right wrist behind his back. [EPD REDACTION] continued to resist by attempting to pull his right arm away from me toward his chest while ignoring my commands to place his hands behind his back, stop resisting, and wlak to my vehicle. Accompanied by [EPD REDACTION] who was pleading with [EPD REDACTION] to comply, I escorted [EPD REDACTION] to my police vehicle while he continued to attempt to pull his arms away from me and ignore orders to stop resisting and walk to the vehicle. Once we arrived at my police vehicle, I requested that [EPD REDACTION] open the rear, passenger door of my vehicle. Once the door was open, I ordered [EPD REDACTION] to sit inside of the back seat. [EPD REDACTION], "I'll sit myself, bitch" and sat in the back seat of his own accord. I then closed the door and secured [EPD REDACTION] inside.16-18402/8/1617/11/2021Kerley1259th WardSoft hand control techniquesRedactedMRedactedRedacted10-50 Report/assignmentDaylightN/Aleft emptyleft emptyleft emptyleft emptyleft emptyleft empty15/1459171KerleyNoUncooperative Minor
While conducting a Domestic Disturbance investigation in [CNP REDACTION], suspect [CNP REDACTION], repeatedly threatened bodily harm to Officers on scene. After already demonstrating violent behavior, in that he punched the windshield of his girlfriend's vehicle causing extensive damage, [CNP REDACTION] stated "I'll whoop your bitch ass. I ain't afraid of you bitch ass n******" multiple times to both myself, as well as Officer Witt. [CNP REDACTION] also continued to step into close proximity to Officer Witt while continuing to be verbally combative and clenching his fists. Officer Witt ordered [CNP REDACTION] to step back and to unclench his fists at which time [CNP REDACTION] stated "Fuck you, I ain't doing shit". [CNP REDACTION] was then ordered a second time by both Officer Witt and myself to step away from Officer Witt and unclench his fists or he would be arrested for Disobedience to Police. [CNP REDACTION] then stepped back, but continued to take an aggressive posture and verbally combative while stating that he was not afraid of the Police. When the initial incident was resolved and it was determined that the victim did not wish to pursue the incident, [CNP REDACTION] was ordered to leave the area immediately or he would be arrested for Disobedience to Police. [CNP REDACTION] then stated, "Fuck you bitches, I did three years for armed robbery, I'll whoop your ass, you ain't shit." [CNP REDACTION] then approached Evanston Police vehicle #45 and kicked the rear, driver side window and door. At that time, I approached [CNP REDACTION], advised him that he was under arrest and to place his hands behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] then stated "Fuck you, I'll whoop your ass" and walked away from me. I ordered him a second time to stop and place his hands behind his back at which time he replied "fuck you" and refused to comply. Due to already displaying aggressive and violent behavior by punching a vehicle windshield and kicking a Police vehicle, as well as the previous threats of bodily harm toward Police Officers, I felt that a physical altercation would have ensued and myself, as well as assisting Officers, would sustain physical injuries should we attempt to physically restrain [CNP REDACTION] , therefore I deployed my Taser to [CNP REDACTION]'S upper back causing him to fall to the ground. [CNP REDACTION] then immediately complied with orders to place his hands behind his back at which time Officer Witt placed [CNP REDACTION] into handcuffs. [CNP REDACTION] then began crying and advised he want to commit suicide. A supervisor was immediately requested and Taser cartridge/probes were collected and turned over to the Evidence Technician.16-3073411/10/1610/12/2021Kerley1258th WardTaser Deployment26MWDisobedience to PoliceAssignmentDarkness, lighted parking lotN/AN/ARedactedN/AChristian V.

While attempting to place the suspect into custody, he continued to resist by attempting to pull his arms away. As the suspect continued to resist Officer Lang by pulling his arms away, I unholstered and activated my taser. After observing the suspect batter Officer Lang, I advised the subject to stop resisting or he will be tasered. After the suspect ignored my orders and continued to resist by pulling his arms away, I deployed my taser which caused the suspect to fall to the floor. No further force was used to place the subject into custody.17-56966/15/1715/12/2021Kerley1258th WardTaser Deployment28MWAggravated Battery to Police, Battery to Police, Aggravated ResistingAssignmentLighted Bathroomleft emptyleft emptyRedactedleft emptyKevin S.

In summary: While assisting Rice Center staff with preventing [EPD REDACTION] from fleeing the area, I observed [EPD REDACTION] strike employee [EPD REDACTION] multiple times with her arms while attempting to escape when [EPD REDACTION] grasped onto her arm. I then approached [EPD REDACTION] from the rear and wrapped my arms around her upper arms and torso while ordering her to stop resisting and calm down. [EPD REDACTION] continued to actively resisted by attempting to strike me with her elbows and kicking her legs. After ignoring multiple orders to stop resisting, I escorted [EPD REDACTION] to the ground onto an adjacent grassy area. [EPD REDACTION] then continued to actively resist as she turned onto her back and began pulling equipment off of my ballistic vest, followed my multiple attempts to strike me in the face with her hands. I then grasped onto her wrists to prevent her from striking me and ordered her to stop resisting and calm down. [EPD REDACTION] and a second Rice Center employee, [EPD REDACTION] then assisted with restraining [EPD REDACTION]. While continuing to actively resist by attempting to pull her arms away, [EPD REDACTION] began kicking her legs striking me multiple times in the legs.

In summary, on 07/06/2018 at approximately 1300 Hours, I Officer Koste #210 and Officer Carrasco #152 responded to the Davis Metra rail platform, at 915 Davis Street, in reference to a report of a Disturbance. According to Communications, several citizens complained of a disorderly male/white subject, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], who was harassing Metra patrons on the northbound platform. Upon arrival on the Maple Ave entrance to the Metra platform, Officer Carrasco and I proceeded upstairs where we located the above subject. I observed [CNP REDACTION] walking north on the Metra platform stumbling. Subject was on the edge of the platform, and due to his inability to keep his balance I feared he could fall onto the rail road tracks. Upon initial approached I detected a strong odor of alcohol emitting from the subject. During our conversation with [CNP REDACTION], he related he consumed beer and smoked cannabis. Subject proceeded to stumble as he gathered his belonging in order to leave the Metra platform. During the slow process of escorting [CNP REDACTION] from the platform, down the handicapped ramp to safety, he was unwilling to walk and began to refer to me as "bitch". Once, on Maple Ave, [CNP REDACTION] threw his belongings on the sidewalk and continued to stumble heavily. I requested Evanston Fire Department to respond to the scene in order to transport [CNP REDACTION] to the hospital for treatment due to intoxication. Evanston Fire Department personnel arrived and proceeded to speak to [CNP REDACTION]. Captain Lynch instructed [CNP REDACTION] to proceed into the ambulance, upon which Steven Schwind became belligerent. Captain Lynch turned towards the ambulance at which time; [CNP REDACTION] pushed Captain Lynch with both hands, causing Captain Lynch to lose his balance. Officer Carrasco and I advanced to place [CNP REDACTION] under arrest for battery. As I proceeded towards [CNP REDACTION], subject struck me with his elbow/forearm to the right temple. I felt a sharp pain and I felt my glasses fly off my head due to the blow to the head. I observed [CNP REDACTION] take a fighting stance as he begun to move towards me. I unholstered my taser and ordered him in clear and loud voice to place his hands behind his back. I advised [CNP REDACTION] he is under arrest for a battery. [CNP REDACTION] ignored numerous orders and continued to proceed towards me in an aggressive manner. I deployed my taser striking [CNP REDACTION] in the front torso without any effect. I observed one of the taser prongs hanging off of subjects clothing. I issued another warning and ordered [CNP REDACTION] to place his hands behind his back, which he once more ignored as he proceeded to move in my direction. I deployed my second taser cartridge and struck the subject in the front, upper torso. I observed subject lean on the ambulance, which gave me the opportunity to seize his arm, upon which [CNP REDACTION] begun to actively resist again by pulling his arm away from me and Officer Carrasco. [CNP REDACTION] was brought down to the ground using a leg sweep takedown maneuver. I immediately handcuffed [CNP REDACTION]'S right wrist as he proceeded to resist by twisting and tensing his body away from me. With the assistance of Officer Carrasco and Evanston Fire personnel, subject was handcuffed and taken into custody. [CNP REDACTION] was transported to [EPD REDACTION] All events were captured on Axon body camera.18-58837/9/1812/11/2021Koste2104th WardTaser35MW2 x Agg. Battery; Fire/Police, 1 x Agg.

On 11/4/16 at approximately 09:08 hrs, I responded to the area around [CNP REDACTION] due to a domestic battery that occurred. Officers on scene advised that the suspect involved fled the area while being in possession of a knife and a description of the suspect was given out to additional officers responding. Officers in the area advised that the suspect was observed in [CNP REDACTION]. I responded to their location to assist with the investigation. I exited my squad car and walked towared the officers (Sgt. Goldenberg *923, Ofc Syed *205, Lopez *155 and OIT Ofc. Burgers *227 and the suspect, later identified as [EPD REDACTION]. I immediately observed [EPD REDACTION] resist being placed into custody by officers on scene. [EPD REDACTION] refused to put his hands behind his back and flexed and tightened his arms next to his body. [EPD REDACTION] then attempted to position his hands into his coat pocket to continue with the resisting process. Due to him resisting police orders and the possiblity of [EPD REDACTION] being in possession of a weapon, I used a takedown method to bring him to the ground. The takedown consisted of me locking my hands together at [EPD REDACTION] left shoulder and chest area. While on the ground, I held [EPD REDACTION] in a body lock with my hands locked together and my right leg draped over his left side until officers could secure his hands. After [EPD REDACTION] was secured, I resleased the tension from the body lock so he could be placed into a squad vehicle. After [EPD REDACTION] was transported to the EPD, he complained to [EPD REDACTION] that he has an injury to his hand.16-3047511/4/1605/10/2021Lang2195th WardTakedown with Arm RestraintRedactedMRedactedDomestic BatteryAssignment, Assist UnitDaylightleft emptyleft emptyRedactedleft emptyAbove listed ArresteeDuring the process of the arrestee actively resisting being placed into custodyRedacted1605Lang; Goldenberg; Syed; Lopez; BurgersNoReport of Domestic Battery

[CNP REDACTION] fled from officers in the 600 Block of Chicago (Sidewalk) southbound and then thru the parking lot of the Walgreens (635 Chicago). [CNP REDACTION] then proceeded to flee southeast thru the drive thru of the Walgreens and then onto the street. Sg Faison maneuvered his emergency squad vehicle in front of [CNP REDACTION] to cut off his direction of travel. I exited the squad vehicle from the front passenger door to pursue [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] then fled behind the squad vehicle, which resulted with me performing a tackle takedown maneuver on him. I made contact with [CNP REDACTION]'S upper body, resulting with him falling to the ground. I stayed on top of [CNP REDACTION], controlling his head and body until he was placed into custody by the assisting officers.

Upon my arrival, I observed numerous people in the street and on the sidewalk and several officers already on scene. While on scene several groups of females began fighting [CNP REDACTION]. While trying to control an agitated female subject, I observed Officers Pack and Galinda attempting to take a male subject into custody. The subject was actively resisting and attempting to pull away from the officers. I approached the subject from behind and grabbed his right leg and with the help of other officers, took the subject to the ground. I then took control of his right arm and pulled his hand behind his back and cuffed it. Officer Pack assisted in cuffing his left hand. The subject was asked if he was injured and stated that he was not. The subject was searched and then lead to a squad car. Before being placed in the squad car he was searched again and cuffs double locked.20-61/1/2005/10/2021Leeson1852nd WardTake-down25MBDisobedience to Police, Resisting, BatteryRadio Assignment/On ViewOutdoors, dimly litNoneN/AN/AN/AN/AN/AN/A1705 Leeson; D.Pack; Galinda; other.officersNoReport of multiple gunshots and large fight - UoF occurred assiting arrest
In summary, on 10-7-16 I monitored EPD radio traffic of a foot pursuit involving Detective Klopack and Officer Carrigan. I responded to the scene and assisted in setting up a perimeter, positioned at Dodge and Foster. I further monitored radio traffic that two wanted subjects were coming westbound on Foster towards Dodge. I observed two subjects coming towards me and immediately gave loud commands for the subjects to get on the ground. They did not immedately comply with my commands so I continued to give them as they walked away from me across Foster. Reluctantly, they slowed and slowly lay down on the ground. I immediately approached the closer of the two subjects, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], placed my knee on the large backpack that was worn on his back, and handcuffed both his wrists.16-2942810/8/1620/12/2021Levy95th Wardnone16MRedactedPossession of stolen property, disobedience to PoliceRadioDark with artificial street lightingDNADNARedactedDNATris MillsUnknownDNA503Levy; Klopack; CarriganNoFoot Pursuit - UoF was while suspects were laying down - placing weight of knee onto backpack arrestee was wearing while handcuffing
On 2/1/2016 at approximately 1432 hours I, Ofc Mangas #200, responded to the intersection of [CNP REDACTION] for a domestic disturbance. Ofc Jones #215 arrived on scene first and asked for a step up in the speed of responding back-up officers. A short time later I arrived on scene and observed [CNP REDACTION] in the process of taking his shirt off in the middle of [CNP REDACTION] not responding to Ofc Jones #215. I jumped out of my vehicle and met [CNP REDACTION] and Ofc Jones #215 near the driver's door of [CNP REDACTION]'s vehicle. I observed [CNP REDACTION] to be highly aggressive and not responding to anything that was being told to him. [CNP REDACTION] was clenching his fists and not able to listen to commands being given. Due to [CNP REDACTION]'s aggressive nature I advised [CNP REDACTION] to put his hand behind his back and he was under arrest. [CNP REDACTION] shouted, "No!" I advised [CNP REDACTION] again to put his hands behind his back and relax and he became more agitated, ripping away from me when I tried to gain control of his arm. [CNP REDACTION] did not seem to be responding to anything being told to him and increasingly becoming more aggressive making me fearful of receiving a battery. I advised [CNP REDACTION] and Jones #215 that I was going to spray [CNP REDACTION] with OC spray (oleoresin capsicum). I deployed OC spray in [CNP REDACTION]'s face and [CNP REDACTION] began to calm down. [CNP REDACTION] was guided to the ground, handcuffed, and taking into custody.16-283802/01/1617/11/2021Mangas2008th WardOC Spray (Pepper Spray)21MBAggravated Assault, ResistingRadio Assignmetn for Domestic DisturbanceLightN/ARedactedKurtis A.

On 5/18/2016 at approximately 1929 hours I, Ofc. Mangas #200 was dispatched via radio to assist in a transport in the alley of [CNP REDACTION]. On scene I was advised [CNP REDACTION] needed to be transported to the Evanston Police Department. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm to escort him to my vehicle and [CNP REDACTION] became very angry pulling away from me and stiffening up his legs, refusing to walk. I grabbed his arm again, and now with the help of Ofc. Senese #230, [CNP REDACTION] was escorted to my vehicle. At the vehicle [CNP REDACTION] yelled, "I ain't getting in that car without a fight". [CNP REDACTION] actively refused to get in the car so I went to the opposite side to help guide him in. [CNP REDACTION] laid on the floor of the passenger compartment of the vehicle refusing to sit in the seat, kicking at officers on the opposing side of the car. I attempted to lift [CNP REDACTION] off the floor of the vehicle but [CNP REDACTION] pulled away. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm and pulled him into the seat while he stated, "you're going to have to work for it." [CNP REDACTION] was eventually put in a seat and buckled before being transported to the station.16-1303905/19/1607/12/2021Mangas2002nd WardNon-Impact Control Techniques21MBBattery, Resisting arrest, suspended DLAssignmentDaylightN/AN/ARedactedN/AShaquille D.

In summary, on 05/22/16 at approximately 0159 hrs Ofc Thomas #204 and I (Ofc Marx #145) responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a report of a large disturbance. Upon arrival, I observed approximately 60-80 individuals on the sidewalk not actively fighting. Without warning, the fight started again. An unknown M/B later identified as [CNP REDACTION], began to wildly throw strikes with both arms. [CNP REDACTION] was actively fighting with individuals later identified as [CNP REDACTION], and [EPD REDACTION] observed Ofc Thomas grab [CNP REDACTION] from the back and remove him from the fight but then released control once he was successful. I then observed an individual fall to the ground to the right of [CNP REDACTION]. I then observed [CNP REDACTION] position his body in an attempt to begin to deliver closed fist strikes to the subject on the ground. I un-holstered my department issued taser and discharged it into [CNP REDACTION]'s back after watching him continue to batter these two individuals while receiving commands to cease. [CNP REDACTION] received an additional 5-second dischard after I observed him attempt to dislodge the probes from his back. After a period of time, the immediate scene around [CNP REDACTION] was cleared and [CNP REDACTION] was able to be handcuffed by Ofc Thomas (see arrest report for details). [CNP REDACTION] was then place in the back of a Evanston PD squad car for safe keeping. Approximately 10 minutes later, the scene was cleared enough were Evanston PD could come and render aid to the individuals on scene such as [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] was treated on scene and refused any additional treatment.

In summary, on 10/7/16 at approximately 2231 hours I (Officer Marx #145), responded to the area of Foster Street and Darrow Avenue for a foot pursuit in progress. Upon Arrival, I learned that officers on scene were looking for three male black suspects. I positioned myself approximately mid-block of the west alley of the 2000 block of Darrow Avenue. While holding my post, I observed two male [EPD REDACTION] suspects jump over the rear fence of 2006 Darrow and begin to run southbound toward Foster. I immediately called off a foot pursuit as the two individuals turned westbound on Foster. After a very brief foot pursuit both subjects were placed under arrest just to the east of the intersection of Foster Street and Dodge Avenue by myself and Sergeant Levy #9. I was able to place [CNP REDACTION] under arrest. [CNP REDACTION] was already lying on the ground as I approached him. I took up a position on the left side of [CNP REDACTION] and began to initiate handcuffing procedure. I gave loud verbal commands to [CNP REDACTION] to relax his left arm and allow myself to place it behind his back. While I was attempting to palce [CNP REDACTION]'s arm behind his back to place a handcuff on his left wrist with my left hand, [CNP REDACTION] tensed his left arm muscles in an attempt to defeat my handcuffing. I then took my right hand from the lower back of [CNP REDACTION] and placed it on the left wrist of [CNP REDACTION] in order to gain control. After gaining complete control of [CNP REDACTION]'s wrist by using reasonable leverage to defeat the resisting, I was able to place a handcuff on [CNP REDACTION]'s left wrist. [CNP REDACTION] did not struggle any further when completing the handcuffing of the right wrist. [CNP REDACTION]'s handcuffs were then checked for appropriate fit and then double locked. Once [CNP REDACTION] stood up, he complained that the cuffs were too tight on his left wrist. I then loosened the tension on the left wrist handcuff and again double locked it. I then turned over custody of [CNP REDACTION] to Neighborhood Enforcement Team Detectives who began the foot pursuit of the suspects. No further information.16-2942810/7/1620/12/2021Marx1455th WardHandcuffing procedure16MRedactedDisobedience to PoliceOfficer was effecting an arrest after foot chaseDark/Dim on lighted roadwayDNADNAUnknownDNAJames D.

On 06/27/2019 at appoximately 2318 hours, Officer Niedziela and I, Officer Masucci, responded to [CNP REDACTION] to assist Officer Roden with a disturbance. The nature of the call was later determined to be domestic in nature. Officer Roden met with the victim, [CNP REDACTION], while Officer Sosa, Officer Niedziela, and I met with the suspected offender, [CNP REDACTION]. Officer Roden advised [CNP REDACTION] wanted to sign complaints against Thomas, at which time Officer Sosa, Officer Niedziela, and I approached [CNP REDACTION], directing him to place his hands behind his back and stop moving away from us. As we approached [CNP REDACTION], who was passively resisting by not complying with clear direct orders from police officers and backing away. Officer Sosa approached Thomas by grabbing Thomas’ right arm, Officer Niedziela grabbed onto [CNP REDACTION]’s left hand, and moved [CNP REDACTION] onto the bed. While on the right side of [CNP REDACTION], who was not lying on his stomach, with Officer Sosa positioned on his right shoulder, Officer Niedziela on his left arm, I grabbed [CNP REDACTION]’s right wrist, placing it in a handcuff. I then placed [CNP REDACTION]’s left wrist in the handcuff. The handcuffs were checked for proper fit, double locked and tension checked. [CNP REDACTION] was then escorted outside of the home. While on the walkway in the front yard of the residence, [CNP REDACTION] let his body go limp, falling to the ground. [CNP REDACTION] then shook on the ground, flopping his head in the dirt, kicking his legs, and was spitting. [CNP REDACTION] was still ignoring police commands at this time. An ambulance arrived, and [CNP REDACTION] was moved to a gurney. A spit mask was placed on [CNP REDACTION], due to him spitting and face covered in saliva. [CNP REDACTION] was moving his body aggressively by rocking back and forth with his body weight, almost falling out of the gurney, ignoring directions from police and fire personnel. [CNP REDACTION] was then restrained to the gurney and moved into the ambulance. While in the ambulance, [CNP REDACTION], still wearing his spit mask, spat aggressively (building a large amount of saliva in his mouth, positioning his body towards the paramedic and lunging forward as he spat) at a paramedic. No saliva made contact with the paramedic. While in the ambulance, [CNP REDACTION] advised his wrist hurt, while twisting and contorting his body, handcuffed and strapped to the gurney. I un-handcuffed [CNP REDACTION]’s left wrist, keeping his right wrist handcuffed, then handcuffed [CNP REDACTION] to the gurney. I then checked the handcuff on [CNP REDACTION]’s right wrist, showing him it was loose enough to slide up and down part of his wrist. Once at Post 11, [CNP REDACTION] was seen by Doctor Iglesia. [CNP REDACTION] refused medical treatment and was discharged. After the hospital discharged [CNP REDACTION], [CNP REDACTION] was told he would be transported back to Evanston Police Department. [CNP REDACTION] then refused to listen to officer commands and passively resisted by ignoring officer order and going limp. [CNP REDACTION], fell from the hospital bed, refusing to comply with officers. Sergeant Sullivan arrived on scene to assist. [CNP REDACTION] was assisted out of the hospital via wheelchair. Prior to being placed in our marked squad car, [CNP REDACTION] again began complaining of his wrist. To accommodate [CNP REDACTION], we used two sets of handcuffs to restrain [CNP REDACTION] and then placed him in the rear of our squad car. [CNP REDACTION] was then transported to Evanston Police Department without incident. Once in Evanston Lock Up, [CNP REDACTION] was turned over to Officer Roden and Desk Officer Kollar. This incident is captured on Body Camera. Nothing further at this time.19-550507/11/1924/12/2021Masucci1362nd WardHandcuffing49MBDomestic Battery, Criminal Damage to PropertyRoutine patrol – responding to a callInterior lightingleft emptyleft emptyREFUSED-Discharged from Saint Francis by Doctor Iglesialeft emptyTheodore ThomasOffender was passively resisting officers.

My partner stopped a subject matching the description at 2801 Howard St., Chicago. I arrived at 2801 Howard St, Chicago where I observed my partner holding the subject at a taser point and the subject was laying on the ground on his stomach. I approached the subject from the back, placed my right knee on subject's lower left back, grabbed both subject's hands, removed my right knee from subject's lower left back, placed my left knee on subject's upper center back and handcuffed the subject. I checked the handcuffs for proper fit, sat the subject on the ground and with my partner's assistance we lifted the subject and he walked to the squad care where he was secured. The subject sat in the back of my squad care for approximately 10 to 15 minutes while my partner searched the area for the stolen goods. We then transported the subject to the station from 2801 Howard St, Chicago. One in the 600 block of Ridge, the subject stated that his back hurts and requested to be taken to the hospital.

In summary but not verbatim: On 05/20/17 at approx. 1152 I, Ofc. Messing, was on the scene at [CNP REDACTION] for a report of retail theft with a subject who was being detained and being combative. I responded with Ofc. Jacobs and Ofc. Buell. Upon arrival, I observed a subject, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], who was being detained by several Best Buy security officers just inside the front doors by a cash register. As we approached we advised [CNP REDACTION] he was under arrest and gave verbal commands to place his hands behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] ignored my commands and when I attempted to place [CNP REDACTION] into handcuffs he began waving and thrashing his arms around wildly in an attempt to resist arrest. I observed [CNP REDACTION] swing his right arm with a closed fist and strike Ofc. Buell in the chest area. At this time, I un-holstered my conductive electronic weapon, CEW (taser), aimed it at [CNP REDACTION]'s middle torso, and pulled the trigger on the CEW. The CEW deployed and struck [CNP REDACTION] in his lower abdomen. The Neuro-Muscular Incapacitation was insufficient to gain compliance. [CNP REDACTION] turned away from me and started running through the store. Responding officers and I gave chase on foot and during the pursuit Ofc. Buell deployed his OC spray on [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] continued to flee towards the front exit of the store where he was tackled by the Best Buy security guard in the vestibule of the store. I again attempted to place [CNP REDACTION] under arrest. [CNP REDACTION] was lying on his stomach with his hands across his chest. I then gave several verbal commands to Ko to stop resisting. I attempted to pull his arms away from his body without success. I then deployed 3-4 knee strikes to [CNP REDACTION]'s left abdomen torso area to gain compliance without success. Ofc. Bernhardt arrived on scene and deployed her CEW. [CNP REDACTION] then complied and I was able to place [CNP REDACTION] into custody without further incident.17-46655/20/1705/11/2021Messing2288th WardConductive electrical weapon (taser)/ knee strikes28MAAggravated battery to security officer, retail theft, resisting arrest, battery to P.O.Radio assignmentBrightNoneleft emptyRedactedDnaKoKnee Strikes/Taser (CEW) deploymentleft empty1004Messing; Buell; Bernhardt; JacobsNoReport of fight and retail theft - fight ongoing on arrival
On 4/17/16 at approximately 2152 hours I was called to [CNP REDACTION] by Officer Virani and Servatius who were conducting a traffic stop. Once on scene the driver, later identified as [CNP REDACTION] became extremely irate and aggressive. At one point he forcefully opened his car door and struck assisting Officer N. Jones in the leg. [CNP REDACTION] was immediately ordered under arrest; however he refused to exit his vehicle. I opened the driver's side door and grabbed hold of [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm while assisting officers grabbed hold of his other arm. [CNP REDACTION] was ordered numerous times to exit the vehicle and to stop resisting arrest. He braced himself inside the vehicle and attempted to climb to the passenger side of the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] was successfully removed from the vehicle and an assisted, controlled take down of [CNP REDACTION] was performed in the roadway where he was then handcuffed.16-991104/17/1617/12/2021Miller268th WardControlled take down22MBTraffic, resisting arrest, battery to police officerTraffic arrest/AssistDark, LightedSgt.

There was additional information that one individual may be armed with a handgun. Upon arrival I saw roughly 50 people in the roadway and on the sidewalk in front of 1620 Orrington. Many of the individuals were actively fighting. I heard glass bottles being broken and metal dining chairs being thrown into the street. The area was dimly lit with overhead street lighting. As I approached on foot I heard screaming and yelling near the front door of the business. I saw four individuals actively engaged in a physical fight as they were knocking over dinning tables and chairs. I saw one individual dressed in all white clothing, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], throw a glad beer bottle directly at another individual. [CNP REDACTION], then tackled the individual to the ground and began to strike him in the head multiple times with a closed fist. I announced my office and ordered the two to stop fighting. The pair got back to their feet and continued to struggle. I saw [CNP REDACTION], strike the individual several more times. In an effort to protect this individual from further harm/injury I believed it reasonable, due to the extremely volatile and unpredictable crowd, to deploy my TASER at [CNP REDACTION], My verbal warnings went unacknowledged to the pair. I closed my distance to [CNP REDACTION], to approximately 5 feet in an effort to obtain adequate probe spread. I attempted to aim at a preferred target zone (lower torso) and deployed the taser for a single 5 second burst. This was effective at bringing [CNP REDACTION], to discontinue fighting and he fell to the ground. [CNP REDACTION], was quickly taken into custody and placed into handcuffs.16-1349305/22/1626/09/2021Miller261st WardTaser X26P Coducted Electrical Weapon25MBMob ActionRadio assignment--large disturbance; multiple subjects fightingDark;lightedNoneN/ARedactedN/AShawn GallimoreElectrical probe contact; punctureRedacted302Miller; CorreaNoFight in large gathering
On 10/08/2016 at approximately 0108 hours I (Ofc. Nawotka #243) responded to the area of 1400 Chicago for an in progress battery. Upon arrival at the scene my attention was drawn to Sgt. Wernick #5 and Ofc. Virani #163 who were attempting to take [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] into custody. I began to assist as Sgt. Wernick and Ofc. Virani brought [CNP REDACTION] to the ground. While on the ground, [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist, refusing to turn over onto his stomach. [CNP REDACTION] was using his arms to push away and refused to comply with multiple orders to turn over and place his hands behind his back. Unable to gain compliance, and having difficulty restraining [CNP REDACTION] due to the fact that he was 6'03" and approximately 250 lbs., I administered approximately three knee strikes to the side of [CNP REDACTION]'s torso. With the knee strikes and the efforts of Sgt. Wernick and Ofc. Virani, we were able to get Hamilton to roll over onto his stomach. We continued to have problems gaining control of [CNP REDACTION]'s arms due to the fact that he was lying against bushes. Sgt. Wernick and I pulled Hamilton across the ground in order to gain some space. At this time I felt a sharp pain in my lower back, but continued to assist with placing Hamilton into handcuffs and sitting him up.

I, Officer Neal gave several loud verbal commands for the individual to stop who was fleeing on a stolen bicycle. The individual continued to flee and with open hands, I pushed the individual off the bicycle to prevent further escape. I gave several more verbal commands for the individuals to get down on the ground. I grabbed the individual by the left arm and took the subject down to the ground. Once on the ground he was taken into custody in double locked handcuffs.16-3233412/27/1631/10/2021Neal1287th WardWeaponless Impact37MWPossession of Burglary Tools, TheftOn-ViewDaylightleft emptyleft emptyleft emptyleft emptyleft emptyleft emptyleft empty2001NealNoOfficer pushes fleeing arrestee off bicycle
I, Officer Neal was assisting Officer Thomas #204 chase a subject who fled from him and the scene of a crash. I observed a male subject, approximately 6 feet tall wearing a dark colored jacket and medium length hair running east on Emerson from the crash scene. In an attempt to prevent the fleeing subject from entering the roadway for his safety, I placed my vehicle in his path of travel approximately 50 feet in front of him. The subject ran around the rear of my vehicle into the middle of the street and continued running northeast. I exited my vehicle and yelled "Police, Stop!" The subject did not comply with my verbal commands and continued to flee. At this point, I am out of my vehicle and chasing the subject on foot. Considering the subject was actively disobeying, escaping a lawful arrest, made evasive maneuvers to defeat my attempt to detain him, perceived size difference, a potential to cause injury to officers or himself by running into the middle of street and ignoring verbal commands, I drew my Taser. I continued to chase the subject but it appeared that I was not gaining ground on the subject. I feared the subject was getting away as he began to head to the northwest corner of Ridge and Emerson where there was a blind left corner. The subject was approximately 20 feet in front of me and had a clear path to flee. At this time, I deployed my Taser aiming for the preferred target area, the back of the subject. The Taser appeared to miss or was ineffective. The subject turned left onto Ridge from Emerson and I continued to chase him. After closing the distance between us, I found myself in arm's length to grab him and take him down to the ground. As I went to grab him on his right collar area, the subject fell down to the ground. Officer D. Pack #234 arrived on scene and placed him in handcuffs.17-42305/8/1723/09/2021Neal1285th WardWeaponless Impact Techniques19MBDUIOn-ViewNight Timeleft emptyleft emptyleft emptyleft emptyleft emptyleft emptyleft empty2603Neal; Thomas; D.PackNoTraffic Crash - foot pursuit of arrestee
I, Officer Neal was conducting a traffic stop investigation. After I found a gun in the glove box, I told the officers to handcuff everyone and the subject who was sitting in the front seat where the gun was found, fled on foot. I observed a male subject, approximately 5/10" to 6 feet tall wearing a dark colored jacket and medium build flee north on Grey. I proceeded chasing the subject on foot. The subject quickly turned west and then made another quick, evasive maneuver to turn south. Considering the subject was actively disobeying, escaping a lawful arrest, made evasive maneuvers to defeat officers attempt to detain him, perceived size difference, a potential to cause injury to officers or himself by fleeing, and a potential to cause harm to the general public if not apprehend, I considered using my taser. I shouted verbal commands for him to stop or he will be tased and he continued running. I continued to chase the subject but it appeared that I was not gaining ground on the subject. I feared the subject was getting away as he began to head southwest from the location. The subject was approximately 15 - 20 feet in front of me and had a clear path to flee. At this time, seeing that the subject was running toward a grassy area and if he was to fall, he would fall on the soft, grassy area, I deployed my Taser aiming for the preferred target area, the back of the subject. After deploying, the subject began to stumble and fell to the ground. Officer Tyson place the subject in handcuffs.18-23393/23/1830/11/2021Neal1288th WardTaser19MBAgg.

I, Officer Neal was attempting to stop a known convicted felon, [CNP REDACTION], for an Evanston Felony Warrant and a Cook County probation violation warrant. I observed [CNP REDACTION] as the driver of a vehicle that was stopped at [CNP REDACTION] in Skokie. I approached from the passenger side and shined my flashlight into the vehicle and the occupants exited. I made eye contact with [CNP REDACTION] as he exited the vehicle. I gave verbal commands to [CNP REDACTION] to stop. [CNP REDACTION] began to walk away and I told him "don't run." [CNP REDACTION] began running and I proceeded chasing him on foot. I gave verbal commands to stop but he did not. [CNP REDACTION] jumped over a tall black fence I was unable to jump over. As [CNP REDACTION] jumped over the fence, [CNP REDACTION] caused the fence gate to swing open. [CNP REDACTION] continued to run. Considering the subject was actively disobeying, escaping a lawful felony arrest, and a potential to cause injury to officers or himself by fleeing, I considered using my taser. [CNP REDACTION] was running toward another fence. I shouted verbal commands for him to stop or he would be tased and he continued running. I feared the risk of injury to an officer or Peart was significant if he continued to flee and jump over the next fence. The subject had approximately 15-20 feet in front of me and had a clear path to flee. Due to the low light situation, I had limited visibility which increased the possibility for hazard. At this time, seeing that the subject was running in a soft grassy area, I deployed my Taser aiming for the preferred target area the back of the subject. After deploying, the subject fell down in the grass and yelled. [CNP REDACTION] was handcuffed by Det.

On 5/31/16 at approximately 0348 hours I, OFC Niedziela *118 responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a report of a burglary in progress. Prior to my arrival, Detective Geyer advised via radio transmission he was in a foot pursuit with the suspect east bound on Main from Chicago and then soutbound through the east alley of Chicago at Main. I drove my marked patrol vehicle through the alley and observed Detective Geyer and OFC Virani pursuing a m/[EPD REDACTION] subject wearing dark clothing. While driving my vehicle I observed the subject turn east bound through the alley toward Hinman. I immediately exited my patrol vehicle and pursued the subject on foot. I yelled loudly at the subject stating, "Evanston Police! Stop running!" The subject ignored my verbal commands and continued to flee east bound through the alley toward Hinman and then ran north bound on Hinman. I continued to yell verbal commands for the subject to stop running and advised my office as Evanston Police. The subject then fled east bound in the 800 block of Hinman through the middle of the street and then south bound on Hinman. I was able to catch up to the subject and tackled him on the south east side of the street on Hinman. The subject immediately began to attempt to free himself by violently twisting and turning his body and swung his elbows into my face and chest. In fear for my safety, I struck the subject in the face with a close fist approximately 2-3 times. I repeatedly told the subject he was under arrest and to place his arms behind his back. The subject continued to resist my arrest by tensing the muscles in both of his arms and tucking them underneath his body. The subject then attempted to reach toward his waistband. In fear the subject may be attempting to access a weapon from underneath himself I struck the again with a closed fist approximately 2-3 times. Several officers then arrived on scene and assisted by taking hold of the subject's arms, placing them behind his back and I then placed him into handcuffs(s).16-145675/31/1602/10/2021Niedziela1183rd WardClose fist hand strikes20MWBurglary, Resisting ArrestBurglary in progress, assisting unitDarkleft emptyNoneleft emptyleft emptyleft emptyleft emptyleft empty10?03Niedziela; Geyer; ViraniNoChasing arrestee
On 07/13/2016 at approximately 1800 hours I, OFC Niedziela *118 responded to 1830 Dempster (PLS/Currency Exchange) for a report of a subject on scene attempting to cash a fraudulent check. Dispatch advised, the caller, store manager [EPD REDACTION] stated the suspect was a M/B wearing a red t-shirt and red pants. Upon arrival, I observed the subject matching [EPD REDACTION] description, later identified as [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] leaning on the front counter of the business. I walked toward the [CNP REDACTION] to make contact with him and he immediately attempted to flee. I took hold of [CNP REDACTION] by wrapping my arms around his torso and gave him loud verbal commands that he was under arrest and to stop resisting. [CNP REDACTION] continued to try and defeat my arrest by swinging his elbows striking me in the face, violently twisting and turning his torso and attempting to run toward the front door. I continued to give [CNP REDACTION] loud verbal commands to stop resisting, get on the ground and put his arms behind his back but he continued to actively resist. In fear for my safety, I attempted to take [CNP REDACTION] down to the ground using a take-down maneuver. The subject first fell on top of the front counter and then I was able to take him down to the ground. The subject then took hold of a metal banister and was able to stand up as I held on to him. Sergeant Sophier and several assist units then arrived on scene and I was able to place the subject into handcuff(s).

I responded to the rear of [CNP REDACTION] and observed a subject matching the description of the offender hiding in the backyard of the premises along the north wall of the home. I immediately announced my office as Evanston Police and ordered the subject to place his hands on the wall of the home. The suspect ignored my orders and immediately fled southbound to the front of the home. I advised via radio transmission the subject's direction of travel and a brief description. After losing sight of the suspect briefly, I then conducted a search in the backyard of [CNP REDACTION]. I began to walk on the east side of the backyard's walkway northbound toward the front of the house in order to check the front of the home. As I walked approached the gate leading to the front of the home I observed the suspect hiding behind a wall that was created by the chimney of the home. The suspect immediately took a fighting stance picked up both of his hands that were balled into fists and took a step toward me in a fast, aggressive manner. In fear the suspect was going to strike me, I immediately struck the subject with my closed right hand in the left side of his face. I gave the subject loud verbal commands to stop resisting and to get on the ground. I also yelled for Detective Schmidt to come and help me as I was actively struggling with the offender. After I struck the subject I was able to pull him down to the ground onto his stomach. The suspect immediately began to throw his elbows backwards striking me in the chest and attempted to get back to his feet. In fear the subject may elbow me in the face and stand back to his feet I struck the subject approximately two more times with a closed hand in the right side of his face. I continued to give the subject loud, verbal commands to place his arms behind his back and to stop resisting. The subject continued to actively resist by tensing the muscles in both of his arms and violently twisting his body side to side in order to free himself from my arrest. Detective Schmidt then made it to my location and aided me in placing my handcuff on the subject's right wrist using soft hand control techniques. After placing the handcuff on the subject's right wrist and taking control of his right arm Detective Schmidt and I were able to place the subject's left arm behind his back and safely place the other side of the handcuff on his left wrist.17-55656/12/1717/11/2021Niedziela1188th WardTake down, Weaponless Strikes27MBCharges pendingRoutine patrolLightDNADNADNADNADNADNADNA202Niedziela; SchmidtNoFoot Pursuit of arrestee, crime unclear
On 1/17/2019 at approximately 0038 hours I, OFC Niedziela *118 responded to [CNP REDACTION] as a back up unit to assist with battery in progress. Evanston communications advised they received a call from, [EPD REDACTION], who stated there was a subject identified as [CNP REDACTION] who was battering a female identified as, [EPD REDACTION], on the 2nd floor of the complex. Upon arrival at the location I observed OFC Rowell struggling to take [CNP REDACTION] into custody on the first floor hallway. I ran toward OFC Rowell in order to assist him in attempting to place [CNP REDACTION] into custody. I took hold of [CNP REDACTION] left arm and OFC Rowell had hold of his right arm. I gave [CNP REDACTION] several loud, clear, verbal commands to place his arm behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] refused to follow my commands and actively resisted being placed under arrest by flexing the muscle in his left arm and pulling it toward his body stopping me from being able to put it behind his back. I advised [CNP REDACTION] if he continued to resist I would have to use force to gain compliance. [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist as I gave him clear, loud, verbal commands to place his hand behind his back. Subsequently, I delivered three closed, empty hand strikes with my right hand to [CNP REDACTION] face. I then ordered [CNP REDACTION] again to place his hands behind his back with negative results. I delivered two additional closed, empty hand strikes with my right hand to [CNP REDACTION] face. I then felt [CNP REDACTION] release some of the muscle tension in his arm at which point OFC Rowell was able to place a handcuff on [CNP REDACTION] right arm that he had been holding and then secured the other side of the handcuff to [CNP REDACTION] left arm that I had hold of.19-42301/26/1920/09/2021Niedziela1181st WardEmpty hand strikes25MBCharges pending.

On 5/26/19 at approximately 0252 hrs, I, Sergeant Correa #17, was assisting in the search for an offender of criminal trespass/commercial burglary investigation to [CNP REDACTION]. I was located on the east side of 1458 Chicago when I heard Officer Hicks giving commands for a subject [CNP REDACTION] to get on the ground. I was approximately 15-20 feet from Officer Hicks and [CNP REDACTION] when [CNP REDACTION] appeared to comply and assumed a crouched position. It should be noted that Officer Cherrey and Sergeant Sullivan were in the immediate area as well as additional responding officers. I unholstered my taser and approached as [CNP REDACTION] appeared to comply with Officer Hick’s orders. I observed [CNP REDACTION] jump from the crouched position and run toward responding officers. Fearful that [CNP REDACTION] may run over myself or another officer as we were beginning to surround him, I discharged my taser. I did not observe an effective incapacitation as [CNP REDACTION] fled on foot past officers, running toward them and then changing direction to evade capture. [CNP REDACTION] was later taken into custody in the alley behind [CNP REDACTION]. It should be noted that as I was walking toward the arresting officers, my cartridge wires became tangled in my duty belt. I removed the cartridge and wrapped the wires and noticed that they were absent both probes. I initially discarded the cartridge, but later recovered it. It should be noted that I reviewed my body worn camera footage prior to this report.19-424705/26/1928/09/2021Niedziela1181st WardTaser28MBTrespass to LandDispatched call for serviceDarkNoneN/AEFD Engine/Ambulance 22N/AJohnny O.

On 3/10/20 at approximately 1712 hours my partner, OFC Carrasco, and I, OFC Niedziela responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a report of a hit and run that just occurred. After several minutes of responding to the call for service my partner and I were able to locate the offending vehicle and suspected driver, [EPD REDACTION]. OFC Carrasco attempted to interview [EPD REDACTION] for several minutes about what occurred prior to our arrival but she continually ignored him by texting on her phone. Subsequently, he advised her she was going to be detained while he continued to investigate the hit and run. As OFC Carrasco attempted to place [EPD REDACTION] into handcuffs she began to actively resist his attempt and was able to kick him in the groin. OFC Romero and I responded to assist my partner in placing [EPD REDACTION] into handcuffs. [EPD REDACTION] continued to actively resist by kicking herself away from her vehicle at which point I conducted a take down to better control her and have a better opportunity in placing her into handcuffs. [EPD REDACTION] continued to actively fight and resist my attempt at placing her into handcuffs but after several minutes I was able to safely place both cuffs around her wrist. I tension checked both handcuffs and double locked them prior to placing [EPD REDACTION] into the rear of our marked patrol vehicle.20-20093/20/202029/11/2021Niedziela1188th WardTake downRedactedFRedactedRedactedResponding to call for serviceLightOFC Romero and OFC CarrascoDuring the attempt to place the arrestee into handcuffsRedactedRedactedLiliana MolinaDuring the course of her hit and run along with our attempts at placing her into handcuffsRedacted27103 Niedziela; Carrasco; RomeroNoTraffic Hit and Run - UoF due to noncompliance
I, OFC Niedziela *118 responded to 7400 N. Wolcott to assist Detective(s) Pogorzelski and Popp with a traffic stop. Upon arrival, Detective Popp had the subject, [CNP REDACTION], removed from the vehicle and handcuffed. Detective Popp requested I conduct a secondary search of [CNP REDACTION]'s person and advised he observed [CNP REDACTION] concealing something into his pants. I advised [CNP REDACTION] to position his body toward his vehicle and I requested he spread his legs. [CNP REDACTION] immediately stated, "Do not touch my ass!" [CNP REDACTION] did not spread his legs he flexed both of his arms, balled his fists behind his back and flexed his buttocks interfering with my search. [CNP REDACTION] began to twist his body and try to free himself from my grasp. Due to [CNP REDACTION]'s attempts at trying to free himself he fell into the inside of the backseat of his vehicle under his own force falling on his back facing up. I became fearful due to [CNP REDACTION]'s level of resistance be possibly concealing a weapon on his person. I attempted to turn [CNP REDACTION] onto his stomach but he wrapped both of his legs around one of my legs stopping me from being able to do so. I was able to free myself from [CNP REDACTION]'s leg lock and Detective Popp and I were able to stand him to his feet. [CNP REDACTION] but still actively resisting and pushing his body against mine. [CNP REDACTION] continued to actively and forcefully push his entire bodyweight through mine and pushed us to the rear of his vehicle where his forehead collided with his taillight at which point I believe he sustained a bloody lip. [CNP REDACTION] caused me to fall to my back with him landing on top of me. I notified communications via radio transmission [CNP REDACTION] was actively resisting and we would need 2-3 additional officers to respond. Detective Popp and I were able to finally get [CNP REDACTION] onto his stomach and waited for back up units to respond.20-29745/2/2013/12/2021Niedziela118Roger's ParkControl tech/sustained injury23MBActive Warrant, Drugs, Traffic offenseRoutine patrolDusk, street lights streetOFC Niedziela *118redactedDNARight elbow was hit on concrete pavement.

The following is a summary and is non-verbatim unless otherwise stated: On 04/21/18 at approximately 1206 hours, dispatchers received a call from [EPD REDACTION], who requested police assistance. [EPD REDACTION] said that her son, [EPD REDACTION] "busted down" the door to her apartment. This was the second, domestic call to the location on 04/21/18 and [EPD REDACTION] advised that [EPD REDACTION] is a diagnosed schizophrenic with a history of violence. As I, Officer Noble #159, arrived a the scene and entered 1042 Ashland, I heard a loud, angry male voice shouting in the second floor hallway, just outside [EPD REDACTION] apartment. As I climbed the stairs to the second floor, I observed [EPD REDACTION] through a glass window, that looks into the hallway area from the east stairwell. [EPD REDACTION] was visibly angry and due to his easy access to the stairwell area and his aggressive demeanor, I pointed my CEW (Conducted Electrical Device) Taser at [EPD REDACTION] and repeatedly told [EPD REDACTION] to lie down on the floor and show me his hands. [EPD REDACTION] was inside the secured hallway area, that was locked and inaccessible to the stairwell and he did not respond to requests to open the door. [EPD REDACTION] began shouting and pointing at me through the glass and told me and leave the location. [EPD REDACTION] then repeatedly threatened to "fight" anyone that entered the hallway area. [EPD REDACTION] removed his clothing and exposed his muscular arms and clenched fists, while assuming a fighting stance. [EPD REDACTION] said that he was going to "punch" anyone that entered. [EPD REDACTION] positioned himself near the door(s) and maintained the stance, as he appeared to lie-in-wait for someone to enter. [EPD REDACTION] attempted to remove a large, metal fire extinguisher from the wall during the stand-off, but he was unsuccessful. [EPD REDACTION] was agitated and continued to pace in the hallway area and shout that he was going to batter anyone that entered. A resident provided keys to the locked door and Officer Triche and I, entered the hallway area and observed that [EPD REDACTION] had assumed a kneeling position. [EPD REDACTION] was kneeling in an upright stance with his open hands covering his face. The enclosed hallway space was approximately 10 x 12 in size and [EPD REDACTION] was kneeling in the middle of the room. As I entered, I told [EPD REDACTION] to lie on the floor several times and he did not comply. [EPD REDACTION] lowered his hands to chest level and began mumbling. His hands were now in front of his upper body and he appeared to move forward. I gave [EPD REDACTION] loud, verbal commands not to move. Additional officers were posted just outside the west hallway entrance, attempting to gain entry, and were shouting "Open the door." I moved tactically towards the doors and allowed the officers access to the hallway area. Upon entry, Officer Marx made first contact with [EPD REDACTION] right arm. As Marx attempted to handcuff him, [EPD REDACTION] twisted away and thrashed his body in resistance. [EPD REDACTION] actively resisted and pulled away. [EPD REDACTION] was not complying despite repeated warnings to stop resisting. I feared that [EPD REDACTION] was escalating due to his combative response. I observed [EPD REDACTION] jaw to be clenched and he was actively resisting despite repeated commands to desist. I gave a clear warning and then deployed the CEW (Taser) from approximately five feet away from [EPD REDACTION] I pressed the CEW trigger and held it down and both cartridges appeared to be deployed simultaneously. The deployment was effective and [EPD REDACTION] landed in a prone position on the floor and was handcuffed without incident. While cuffed and laying on the floor, [EPD REDACTION] continued to be assaultive, stating "You guys are going to have to fight me, I'm not going. I love to fight. I'm schizophrenic. I love to fight." [EPD REDACTION] was subdued by Officer's Kubiax and Marx as he continued to thrash his upper body and legs while the officers attempted to contain him. Leg shackles were utilized and a "spit hood" was placed over [EPD REDACTION] head after he tried to bite an officer.

In Summary but not verbatim: On 4/11/19 at approximately 0649 hours, R/O Noble #159 responded to the parking garage at [CNP REDACTION] at the report of a vagrant sleeping in the lobby. Upon arrival, R/O observed, R/O Witt #147, speaking to a subject in the 2nd floor elevatore lobby, that was later identified as[CNP REDACTION]. Witt advised that [CNP REDACTION] provided a ficticious name and date of birth prior to my arrival on scene. (See supplemental report for additional details.) While speaking to [CNP REDACTION] regarding the criminal trespass to the Sherman Plaza Parking Garage, C/W [EPD REDACTION] of [EPD REDACTION] responded to our location and said he wanted [CNP REDACTION] warned not to return to the garage of be subject to arrest. [EPD REDACTION] said that he observed [CNP REDACTION] at the location earlier in the morning and told him to leave the premise. [EPD REDACTION] was provided the incident report information and [CNP REDACTION] was warned not to return to the location in the future or he would be subject to arrest. During the investigation, [CNP REDACTION] repeatedly asked to "just leave" and began gathering his property that was nearby. [CNP REDACTION] was advised to "stand by" several times. While waiting for the LEADS check to return, [CNP REDACTION] began putting his hands into his pockets and adjusting his clothing and shifting for no apparent reason. [CNP REDACTION] was asked to remove his hands from his pockets and Witt performed a pat-down to assure that [CNP REDACTION] did not have access to a weapon. At 0710 hours, a radio transmission was received from Unit #271, Officer Marx. Marx said that he believed that [CNP REDACTION] was 10-61 (Wanted). I approached [CNP REDACTION] and upon removing my cuffs in preparation for securing [CNP REDACTION], he bent down, grabbed his possessions and ran towards the 2nd floor, north stairwell. Witt and I pursued [CNP REDACTION] into the stairwell and Witt struggled in hand to hand combat attempting to secure [CNP REDACTION] on the 2nd floor stairway. [CNP REDACTION] was not complying and was actively fighting with Witt. Therefore, I removed my CEW (Conducted Electrical Device) X2 Taser from the holster and loudly announced to [CNP REDACTION] to "get on the ground" and said, "I'm going to tase you." [CNP REDACTION] continued to fight with Witt on the stairs, as I repeatedly told him to "get on the ground" and announced my intentions to tase him. Once the taser was turned-on and the sites were visible on Walker's torso; he ceased struggling and Witt began to handcuff Walker on the 2nd floor landing. Walker suddenly pulled away from Witt and fled down the stairs, pulling Officer Witt off his feet, causing him to fall down several steps. As [CNP REDACTION] ran down the stairs, towards the first floor landing with Officer Witt in pursuit, I, activated my X2 Taser and the probes struck [CNP REDACTION] and he fell into the north wall and then onto the floor of the landing. The single, deployment was effective and Witt handcuffed [CNP REDACTION] without incident. Walker failed to comply despite repeated warnings and actively resisted despite commands to desist. Prior to deploying the X2 Taser I gave clear warning and then deployed the CW Taser from about 10-12 feet away from [CNP REDACTION].

[CNP REDACTION] fell off his bicycle, got up and continued to run west into the walkway located at 7650 N. Marshfield (rear of Gale School). I ran to take a position just south (across from the walkway) onto the parking lot location at 7630 N. Marshfield in order to stop [CNP REDACTION] if he continued to flee. I observed [CNP REDACTION] duck behind a bush, reach into his waistband, stand up and then run south into the parking lot toward me. [CNP REDACTION] ran toward me, without slowing, with his hands not completely visible. I deployed my taser due to fearing that I would receive an imminent battery at the hands of [CNP REDACTION]. The probes struck [CNP REDACTION] in the lower left thigh and lower abdomen with the taser completing one five second cycle. [CNP REDACTION] was then immediately taken into custody by assist detectives (Cherrey and Holliman) without any resistance.16-183526/30/1620/12/2021O'Brien168Roger's ParkTaser22MBUUWOn-ViewDark with limited lightingNoneN/ARedactedN/AValgas, D.

On 12/7/18 at 1940 hours, I (Detective O'Brien #168) was working a detail assignment at Evanston Township High School (Beardsley Gymnasium) for the boys basketball game. I was approached by Director of Safety, Matthew Driscoll who informed me that [EPD REDACTION] was inside the gym currently after being warned arrested in the past for Criminal Trespass to Land. Driscoll pointed out [EPD REDACTION] and requested that he be arrested. I approached [EPD REDACTION] and advised him that he was under arrest. I attempted to grab [EPD REDACTION]'s right arm to place him into handcuffs, at which point he pulled away and said, "don't fucking touch me!" I attempted to grab his right arm again, at which point he pushed away from me and attempted to flee. I placed my arms around [EPD REDACTION]'s waist to prevent him from fleeing, causing us both to fall to the ground. Once on the ground, [EPD REDACTION] continued to pull away and attempt to stand up in an effort to defeat my arrest.

[CNP REDACTION] briefly stopped running in front of[CNP REDACTION] at which point he looked in my direction and raised a glass bottle putting me in fear of receiving a batter from the apparent weapon in his left hand.

On 4/11/19 at 1807 hours, Officer Nawotka #243, Officer Mokos #184 and I Officer Reza responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a domestic disturbance. After speaking with both parties, it was determined [CNP REDACTION] was to be placed under arrest for domestic battery. [CNP REDACTION] was then told he was being placed under arrest for domestic battery. [CNP REDACTION] asked multiple times why he was being arrested and did not get up from the couch. [CNP REDACTION] then directed his attention towards his wife and then got up from the couch and tried to push past us while stating “I’m coming over there!” Fearing [CNP REDACTION] was going to try and get to his wife and cause her more bodily harm, we grabbed [CNP REDACTION] to stop him. [CNP REDACTION] was then pushed down onto the sofa and given multiple, verbal commands to place his hands behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] actively resisted our attempts to place his hands behind his back by placing his left arm underneath his body and tensing up his right arm and refusing to place it behind his back. Since [CNP REDACTION] refused to comply with our commands, I then drew my taser. [CNP REDACTION] was given additional commands to place his hands behind his back and he continued to actively resist. I advised [CNP REDACTION] multiple times that he would be tased and he continued to disobey our commands. I then drive stunned [CNP REDACTION] for approximately 2-3 seconds on his upper back. [CNP REDACTION] immediately complied and placed his hands behind his back and was handcuffed. I reviewed my Body Camera footage prior to authoring this report.

In summary unless otherwise stated, on 06/17/16 at approximately 2317 hrs., during a traffic stop at [CNP REDACTION] I, Ofc. Rosenbaum #161 ordered [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] seated in the front passenger seat, to step out of the vehicle. When [CNP REDACTION] stepped out of the car, he took several steps back from the doorway of the vehicle. I told him to come to the rear of the car so I could pat him down, and he began to comply. [CNP REDACTION] took several steps towards the rear of the car, and then fled westbound on foot, then northbound through the west alley of Dodge. As he ran, I observed [CNP REDACTION] holding his waistband with his right hand. Fearing that [CNP REDACTION] was armed and concealing a weapon, I gave a loud verbal command to [CNP REDACTION] that I would deploy my Taser against him if he didn't stop. Price continued to run, and continued to hold his waistband. I then deployed my Taser for a full 5 second cycle into [CNP REDACTION]upper back. [CNP REDACTION] continued to run for several more feet, but stumbled, and fell in the rear driveway area of [CNP REDACTION], sliding behind a parked car. As I came around the side of the vehicle, I observed [CNP REDACTION] produce what appeared to be a handgun from his waistband area. I dropped my taser to the ground and drew my service weapon and gave [CNP REDACTION] approximately 3 verbal commands to "drop the gun." I saw [CNP REDACTION] make a throwing motion with his left hand, and heard the sound consistent with a gun striking and sliding along the pavement. [CNP REDACTION] then got up, and ran several more feet eastbound through the back yard of [CNP REDACTION], and tripped and fell to the ground again. We were then able to place [CNP REDACTION] in handcuffs (double locked, checked for fit) without further incident.

In summary unless otherwise stated, on 03/15/17 at approximately 1845 hrs, I, Ofc. Rosenbam #161 and was assigned as backup for a traffic stop at [CNP REDACTION]. I assisted Officer Neal in taking [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] into custody after he was found to have a large plastic baggie containing suspect cannabis concealed within his pants. [CNP REDACTION]'s cell phone was located during the search. [CNP REDACTION] asked to have the phone in his pocket so it could be brought with him to the station. Myself, and Officer Pogorzelski led [CNP REDACTION] back to our squad car. While I attempted to gather further information from Officer Neal, Officer Pogorzelski informed me that [CNP REDACTION] was attempting to make a phone call. Based on what I could hear from the rear of the vehicle, it sounded as if [CNP REDACTION] was attempting to summon unknown individuals to the scene of the stop. From training and experience, I knew that [CNP REDACTION]'s actions posed an immediate risk to officer safety, as additional, possible hostile parties, could result in an escalation of the situation. As I got closer to the rear of the car, I heard [CNP REDACTION] say "Get here quick!" I entered the rear of the vehicle to retrieve the phone from [CNP REDACTION] . I gave [CNP REDACTION] approximately 3 verbal commands to give me the phone. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s hands to retrieve the phone. [CNP REDACTION] began thrashing around, and I placed my knee on his thigh to keep him in place. [CNP REDACTION] continued to thrash around, and being verbally abusive to officers. While within several inches of [CNP REDACTION]'s face, [CNP REDACTION] yelled "Hit me, I dare you, I'll sue the shit out of you bitch." While doing so, [CNP REDACTION] spat in my face, causing spittle to strike the area around my eyes, nost, and mouth. Officer Pogorzelski retrieved the phone, and we returned to the front of our squad. I observed several small cuts to my fingers actively bleeding. I then heard [CNP REDACTION] kicking the rear doors and the partition. I returned to the rear of the squad and opened the door to stop [CNP REDACTION] from causing possible damage to the vehicle. I advised [CNP REDACTION] to stop kicking the doors, and attempted to shut the door. [CNP REDACTION] placed his shoe in the door to prevent it from closing. I attempted to shut the door again, and did so successfully. [CNP REDACTION] declined offers for medical attention. Officer Pogorzelski later informed me that while I was attempting to grab the cell phone, she observed [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION].

In summary, on 01/22/18 at approximately 1646 hours I, Detective Rosenbaum #161 was responding to an armed robbery that occurred at [CNP REDACTION]. The offender was initially described as an older male/black with a dark coat and blue jeans who fled southbound from the location. The subject was observed by the victim to have a revolver tucked in his waistband. I attempted to affect a street stop on an individual matching that description, now known to be [EPD REDACTION] in front of [CNP REDACTION]. I gave [EPD REDACTION] verbal commands to put his hands up and turn around, which he complied with. Due to caller's description of an armed offender, I had my service weapon drawn in the sul position. Upon approaching [EPD REDACTION], I holstered my weapon and took control of his right arm using empty hand joint manipulation techniques. I immediately informed [EPD REDACTION] of the reason for the stop. [EPD REDACTION] became argumentative, stating we should check the library when I asked him if he had a firearm in his possession. While assist officers attempted to conduct a pat-down for weapons, [EPD REDACTION] became increasingly agitated, thrashing his body side to side and attempting to turn towards officers. Fearing that [EPD REDACTION] was attempting to access a concealed weapon, I pulled [EPD REDACTION] arm behind his body. I gave [EPD REDACTION] verbal commands to stop resisting but [EPD REDACTION] continued to pull away from me, and thrash his body from side to side. I began handcuffing [EPD REDACTION] but [EPD REDACTION] pulled away from me and turned towards me in an attempt to defeat my efforts. I pushed [EPD REDACTION] towards the side of 860 Chicago, and maneuvered [EPD REDACTION] arm behind his back in order to complete handcuffing [EPD REDACTION]. While being handcuffed, [EPD REDACTION] complained of pain to his wrists and arms. After a show-up was conducted with the victim, it was determined that [EPD REDACTION] was not the offender from the armed robbery. [EPD REDACTION] was subsequently released from handcuffs. [EPD REDACTION] did not request medical assistance for the alleged wrist and arm pain at the scene of the stop. It should be noted that body worn camera footage was reviewed prior to authoring this report.

In summary unless otherwise stated, on 02/26/18 at approximately 1816 hrs., during a traffic stop at [CNP REDACTION] I, Det. Rosenbaum #161 made contact with [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION], whom I knew had an active warrant for his arrest. I opened the driver's side door and gave [CNP REDACTION] verbal commands to turn off the vehicle step out of the car. [CNP REDACTION] complied, and I took control of his right arm and Det. Holliman #150 grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm. [CNP REDACTION] asked why he was being asked out of the vehicle and I told him he had a warrant. [CNP REDACTION] was told to put his hands behind his back, and which point he began twisting from side to side and pulling his hands away from us, ignoring the commands from my partner and I. Det. Holliman was able to apply one handcuff and ordered [CNP REDACTION] to get on the ground, and that he would be tased if he continued to resist, which [CNP REDACTION] ignored. [CNP REDACTION] continued to tense his arms and thrash from side to side, actively resisting our efforts to place him under arrest. My partner and I continued to try to handcuff [CNP REDACTION] through empty hand joint manipulation techniques which proved ineffective. I drew my taser and warned [CNP REDACTION] that he would be tased. Boyd continued to ignore verbal commands to stop resisting and to lie on the ground. After multiple warnings I deployed my taser into [CNP REDACTION]'s mid-back for a full 5 second cycle. [CNP REDACTION] then complied with our commands to roll over and was handcuffed (double locked, checked for fit). It should be noted that while attempting to take [CNP REDACTION] into custody, my body worn camera's power switch was inadvertently knocked into the off position for several seconds. The entirety of the incident was captured on both my partner's BWC and the in-car camera.

In summary unless otherwise stated, on 05/28/20 at approximately 1453 hrs., Det. Popp #116 and myself, Det. Rosenbaum #161 attempted to place a wanted subject, [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] under arrest. I knew [CNP REDACTION] to have multiple wants and warrants for burglary, crinimal trespass, and possession of stolen property. I also knew [CNP REDACTION] to have an extensive criminal history, including crimes of violence (assaulting and obstructing). It should be noted that I was wearing plain clothes and an exterior ballistic vest carrier with police identifiers on both the front and the rear. While traveling north in the 600 block of Dodge, I activated my unmarked police vehicle's emergency equipment and pulled alongside [CNP REDACTION]. My partner and I had both identified our office and Det. Popp gave [CNP REDACTION] repeated verbal commands to stop. [CNP REDACTION] disregarded said commands, stated he would not stop, and continued to ride northbound. [CNP REDACTION] then fled our attempt to stop him, recklessly weaving through heavy vehicle traffic on Dodge, forcing vehicles to slam on their brakes and swerve in order to avoid striking him. After pursuing [CNP REDACTION] through several side streets and aleys in the 600/700 blocks of Dodge and 700 block of Brown, I located [CNP REDACTION] exiting the back yard at [CNP REDACTION]. Based on [CNP REDACTION]'s continued reckless actions, I feared that not taking him into custody immediately would risk bodily harm occurring to [CNP REDACTION] , pursuing officers, and/or citizens in the area. I drew my Taser, I gave [CNP REDACTION] three verbal commands to "get off the bike," and advised him he was under arrest. [CNP REDACTION] disregarded all commands, and I attempted to grab [CNP REDACTION] by the arm to place him into custody. [CNP REDACTION] pulled away from me and continued to attempt to flee. I then used an open hand push to take [CNP REDACTION] off his bicycle. [CNP REDACTION] fell into a nearby bush, where I attempted to gain physical control from the "mount" position until assisting officers arrived. During this time, [CNP REDACTION] attempted to slap the Taser out of my hand. I again advised [CNP REDACTION] he was under arrest, and gave him four verbal commands to "stop fighting." I then warned [CNP REDACTION] that I would deploy OC against him if he countinued to fight. Upon the arrival of Dets. Pogorzelski #255 and Popp #116, I attempted to place [CNP REDACTION] on his stomach for handcuffing. [CNP REDACTION] continued to tense his muscles, pull away from detectives, and resist efforts to be turned over and placed in handcuffs. I then deployed an approximately two second burst of OC spray at [CNP REDACTION]'s face. The application of OC spray was somewhat effective, and myself and Det. Popp were able to maneuver [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm behind his back. However, DAVIS continued to tense his right arm and resist Det. Pogorzelski's efforts. I then deployed another approximately two second burst of OC spray to the right side of [CNP REDACTION]'s face. [CNP REDACTION] was then successfully handcuffed and placed into custody. BWC and dashcam was reviewed prior to authoring this report.

On 1/17/2019 at approximately 0038 hours, I Officer Rowell *188 was dispatched to [CNP REDACTION] for a battery in progress. Upon arrival, [EPD REDACTION], a resident at the above address, pointed down the first floor hallway and yelled “they are fighting!” [EPD REDACTION] gave me access to the building through the front entrance. I quickly ran down the hallway and observed a heavy set naked black female, now known as [EPD REDACTION], defending herself from being battered by black male, now known as [CNP REDACTION]. As I approached the rear door, I observed [CNP REDACTION] close the door and prevent Officer Jones *215 from entering the building. I wrapped my arms around [CNP REDACTION]’s torso and attempted to pull him away from the door which was unsuccessful. I gave [CNP REDACTION] clear, loud, verbal commands to let go of the door and at this time continued to pull the door towards him preventing the rear door from opening. At this time, I successfully performed a takedown which caused [CNP REDACTION] to let go of the door and fall to the floor. [CNP REDACTION] landed on his back and continued to resist verbal commands to roll over onto his stomach and put his hands behind his back.

I, Officer Rowell *188 was in the area of Madison and Dewey assisting Officer Chipolet who was involved in a foot chase with a known subject. [CNP REDACTION], who was identified as a suspect in a burglary to vehicle [CNP REDACTION]. Dispatch advised [CNP REDACTION] might be in possession of a large knife. Officer Chipolet radioed [CNP REDACTION]'s direction of travel, northbound from Monroe through a backyard headed towards Madison. I quickly exited my marked squad car #68 and observed [CNP REDACTION] who was wearing a silver jacket, run northbound and cross over Madison. I ran diagnally toward [CNP REDACTION] where I observed Irby enter a gangway between [CNP REDACTION] in an attempt to cut off [CNP REDACTION] in the backyard. I located [CNP REDACTION] in the backyard of [CNP REDACTION] but due to a fence preventing me from physically getting to Irby, I used clear verbal commands for [CNP REDACTION] to stop while I attempted to climb the fence. [CNP REDACTION] refused to comply with my commands and continued to run towards the back gate behind the garage while holding his waistband. I jumpted off the fence and headed northbound towards the alley where I observed [CNP REDACTION] at the back gate. I used clear verbal commands and announced that I was the police and to stop running. [CNP REDACTION] continued to run in the backyard and out of sight for a few seconds. I continued to run after [CNP REDACTION] where I observed [CNP REDACTION] to be cornered in the backyard due to the fence blocking his path. I again used clear verbal commands for [CNP REDACTION] to get on the ground. At this time, [CNP REDACTION] grabbed the fence with both of his hands and refused to let go. I performed a take down while using clear verbal commands to get on the ground and assisted [CNP REDACTION] to the ground. [CNP REDACTION] was placed in custody and patted down for weapons with negative results.20-3441/13/2024/09/2021Rowell1889th WardTakedown15MRedactedCurfew, Burglary InvestigationOn-ViewDarkRowellredactedRedactedScraped right elbow and right kneeJaques IrbyunknownRedacted402 Rowell; ChipoletNoFoot Chase
On 15 January 2017 I, Commander Sacluti #916, responded to [CNP REDACTION], to assist EFD with a medical run. While standing just outside room #704 I observed a subject, later identified as [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION], come from the bedroom area hyperventilating. [CNP REDACTION] was jumping around and advancing towards Officers and Sergeants stating he could not breathe. [CNP REDACTION] then jumped onto a couch and aggressively jumped down from the couch towards the Officers and Sergeants. Numerous verbal commands were given by all Officers on scene for [CNP REDACTION] to calm down. At that point, Officer Herrera, Sgt. Wernick, Sgt. Bush, and I attempted to gain control of [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] began to actively resist by flailing his arms and pushing away from all Officers. At one point, Sergeants Wernick and Bush gained control of [CNP REDACTION]'s arms. I assisted Sergeants Wernick and Bush with a takedown. While on the floor [CNP REDACTION] continued to fight; Sergeants Bush, Wernick, and I were unable to place [CNP REDACTION] into custody. At this point I asked Dispatch, via police radio, to send more units to our location to assist. I also requested over police radio for a unit with a Taser to respond to assist. After being tasered by Officer Jones (who was already on scene), [CNP REDACTION] got up and began to flee westbound in the 7th floor hotel hallway. Sgt. Wernick, Officer Herrera, Officer Jones, and I caught up to the subject and all fell to the ground. [CNP REDACTION] continued to actively resist by tensing his arms, pulling his arms away from our grasp, and kicking his feet (upwards and backwards) towards our bodies. When [CNP REDACTION] kicked his feet upwards towards our bodies. I delivered 2 knee strikes to the right side of his body. [CNP REDACTION] continued to kick towards me at which point I kicked [CNP REDACTION] approximately 4 to 5 times in his right thigh and left calf area. During the entire incident, I gave [CNP REDACTION] numerous commands to "stop resisting".

On 19 January 2017 at approximately 0115 Hours I, Commander Sacluti #916, responded to Davis Street "el" located at 1618 Benson for a "man with a knife call." Upon arrival I observed a male subject, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], matching the exact description that was provided by the caller. I ordered [CNP REDACTION] to lie on the ground at least 3 times and he refused. [CNP REDACTION] then began reaching into his backpack which was situated right in front of him. At that point, [CNP REDACTION] was tackled at the ground by Officer Pack. I assisted Officer Pack in gaining control of [CNP REDACTION], however, [CNP REDACTION] refused to put his hands behind his back. I delivered one knee strike to [CNP REDACTION]'s left side. [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist despite numerous loud, clear verbal commands. As a result, PO Pack deployed his taser.

After he was told he was going to the hospital [EPD REDACTION] stood up from the chair he was sitting in and said "I'm not going to the hospital." He began to walk toward the elevator. I stood in front of the elevator and told [EPD REDACTION] he had to go to the hospital. At this point myself and Officer Koste attempted to place handcuffs on Bernado Jackson and he tensed up and began pulling away. Unable to place the cuffs on his wrist I took control of his right arm while Officer Koste took control of his left arm. We both used our body weight and momentum to take [EPD REDACTION] to the ground. He was then handcuffed. It should be noted that prior to our encounter with [EPD REDACTION] he had suffered a [half line redacted].18-19303/7/1819/10/2021San Roman1661st WardHandsRedactedMRedactedRedactedRadio assignmentdaylightnoneN/ARedactedN/ABernardo JacksonSubject was handling a broken mirrorRedacted4/145002 San.Roman; KosteNopatient name was not redacted fully in narrativeInvoluntary Committal - Arrestee did not immediately comply with orders
On 05/18/2016 at approximately 1928 hours I, Ofc. Senese #230 placed [CNP REDACTION] under arrest. While [CNP REDACTION] was being escorted to a transport vehicle by Ofc. S. Mangas #200, [CNP REDACTION] stopped walking by stiffening legs. I assisted Ofc. Mangas by grabbing [CNP REDACTION]'s right arm as [CNP REDACTION] kept his legs stiff refusing to walk. Ofc. Mangas was on his left and I had [CNP REDACTION]'s right arm secured. We escorted [CNP REDACTION] to the side of the vehicle. I leaned [CNP REDACTION] against the side of the vehicle using my arms because [CNP REDACTION] was still actively resisting at this point. [CNP REDACTION] continued to aggressively pull away by swinging his shoulders side to side. Smith continued to keep his legs stiff as an attempt to avoided being secured in the vehicle. I held [CNP REDACTION] against the side of the vehicle with both of my arms placed on his back ([CNP REDACTION] was facing the vehicle). While an Officer was attempting to open the door, [CNP REDACTION] kicked me in the right leg causing me to step back. [CNP REDACTION] refused to enter the vehicle and yelled "I aint getting in that car without a fight." I lifted [CNP REDACTION] into the vehicle by his legs while Officer Mangas pulled [CNP REDACTION] into the vehicle from the opposite side. [CNP REDACTION] refused to sit upright in the vehicle and kept both legs stiff. I pulled on [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm to place him in the seat upright and was eventually able to get him fastened in the vehicle.16-1303905/19/1607/12/2021Senese2302nd WardNon-Impact Control Techniques21MBBattery, Resisting arrest, suspended DLOn-viewDaylightN/AN/ARedactedN/AShaquille D.

I told [CNP REDACTION] he would be arrested for obstructing if he continued his actions. [CNP REDACTION] walked out towards where officers were located and I told [CNP REDACTION], he is now under arrest. As I approached [CNP REDACTION] , he started to walk in the threshold of his residence. As I attempted to grab [CNP REDACTION] by his arm to place him into custody, he pushed me in the shoulder. I immediately pulled away. I told [CNP REDACTION] multiple times he was under arrest and not to resist. At this time several members of the residence attempted to pull [CNP REDACTION] inside his residence while I still had a grip on his arm. His family members pulled him inside while I was still attempting to place him in custody. Three or four family members jumped on my back trying to free [CNP REDACTION] from my grip as I was alone in the residence. The family members tried to pull me away by pushing me back against a wall. [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist my efforts by flailing his arms and asking his family members to help [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] continued to refuse my commands after several more loud attempts were given to [CNP REDACTION] stating he was under arrest and stop resisting. I told [CNP REDACTION] he would be tased if he did not comply with my commands. I then released [CNP REDACTION] from my grip to gain some distance from us. I deployed my Taser once into the back of [CNP REDACTION] in an attempt to place him into custody. [CNP REDACTION] immediately fell to the ground and complied with my commands. All other family members also complied after the Taser was deployed. Ofc. Lopez was able to secure handcuffs on [CNP REDACTION] . During the struggle inside the residence I suffered [EPD REDACTION] and refused treatment. An ambulance was called to treat [CNP REDACTION] on the scene for the Taser deployment, Walker signed a refusal treatment. [CNP REDACTION] was transported to EPD for further processing without incident.16-186547/2/1604/11/2021Senese2305th WardTaser18MBBattery to P.O., Resisting Arrest & ObstructingAssignmentDaylightJ.

On 4/2/2019 at approximately 0304 hours, I conducted a traffic stop in the area of [CNP REDACTION]. During the traffic stop a subject (now known as [CNP REDACTION]) fled from the vehicle. After a foot chase I heard my partner, Officer Harvey #133, shouting “stop” at which point I observed [CNP REDACTION] hop a fence in the south alley of the [CNP REDACTION]. Due to [CNP REDACTION] attempting to conceal a weapon and the area being known for gang activity involving weapons and narcotics I conducted a takedown in order to take [CNP REDACTION] into custody. The takedown consisted of me wrapping my arms around [CNP REDACTION]'s upper body and taking him to the ground. I was then able to gain control of [CNP REDACTION]'s arms to secure him in handcuffs. After [CNP REDACTION] was transported to the EPD, he complained to assisting officers of injuries to his hands and knees.19-255804/03/1901/10/2021Servatius253Roger's ParkTakedown19MWUUW (Unlawful use of weapons)Traffic stop, InvestigationDarkNoneN/AEvanston Hospital Doctor AsrowN/ARuben J RomanWhile fleeing from traffic stop and disobeying commands subject was taken down to be placed in custodyScrapes and abrasions to right hand, left hand and right knee, soreness and bruising to left knee612 Servatius; HarveyNoTraffic Stop - pursuit on foot
On 05/27/2019 at approximately 0100 hours Officer Masucci #136 and I, Officer Servatius #253 were in Evanston Police lock up processing a male subject [CNP REDACTION] who was taken into custody for a criminal trespass investigation. Both on scene during [CNP REDACTION]'s initial arrest and at the Evanston Police Department [CNP REDACTION] was uncooperative and refused to listen to officer’s verbal commands. While in lock up [CNP REDACTION] advised that he was having chest pain at which point Evanston Fire Department responded for medical treatment. It was later determined that [CNP REDACTION] would be transported to Evanston Hospital for medical treatment. I placed my hand cuff on to [CNP REDACTION]'s right hand (double locked and checked for fit) and attempted to handcuff him to the gurney. After unsuccessfully finding a place to handcuff [CNP REDACTION] to the gurney I advised him to sit forward in the bed so I could handcuff him behind his back for transport. [CNP REDACTION] continued to be uncooperative and refused to sit forward. With the assistance of Officer Masucci and Evanston Fire personnel I was able to sit [CNP REDACTION] up and place the handcuff on his left hand (double lock and check for fit). While attempting to place the handcuff on to [CNP REDACTION]'s left hand he began to resist by pulling and twisting his right arm. Once both hands were handcuffed [CNP REDACTION] reported that the handcuffs were too tight at which point I check the tension a second time. Even though I was able to place a finger loosely inside of the handcuff I loosened the right handcuff to give him extra space. [CNP REDACTION] was then transported to Evanston Hospital at which point he began to complain of redness on his right wrist due to the handcuffs.19-426605/27/1922/09/2021Servatius2534th Ward, EPD LockupHandcuffing33MWCriminal Trespass, Disorderly ConductAssignmentLightedNoneDNAEvanston Hospital by Dr. GaworDNATrini BotelloIn the process of handcuffing subject for transport to hospital for medical evaluationDNA603(2?)

I unholstered my taser prior to engaging [EPD REDACTION] took cover behind a corner of the bathroom, and gave multiple commands to drop the knife. Each time [EPD REDACTION] refused to drop the knife. I explained to [EPD REDACTION] that if she refused any more than I would be forced to tase her. [EPD REDACTION] understood, stated she did not want to be tased, and further refused to drop the knife. As multiple officers arrived on the scene, [EPD REDACTION] was tased with a single 5 second burst. While being tased Officer Kozolowski grabbed the knife, which was still in her hand, and Officer Pack handcuffed [EPD REDACTION] EFD responded to the scene and transported [EPD REDACTION] NFI.16-3087811/15/1602/10/2021Thomas2043rd WardTaser Deployment18FWNONERadio assignment for armed (knife) subject threatening to harm selfinterior lightedDNADNARedactedDNAredactedSelf-inflicted superficial knife wound to upper chest and right ankle.

On 12/30/2016 at approximately 1807 hours, while in full police uniform. Officer Herrera #195 and I (Officer Tyson #115) were investigating a Domestic Disturbance at [CNP REDACTION]. I was speaking with the reported offender [CNP REDACTION] in the living room of the apartment, while [CNP REDACTION] was seated in a chair. [CNP REDACTION] was being uncooperative in answering questions and had a strong odor of alcoholic beverage coming from his person. I was advised by Officer Herrera that the caller/victim[CNP REDACTION] was reporting [CNP REDACTION] may be armed with knives and he had threatened the caller with them. I asked [CNP REDACTION] if he had any knives on his person. [CNP REDACTION] said "yeah, I got some knives." I advised [CNP REDACTION] to place his hands on top of his head. [CNP REDACTION] yelled "I'm not doing that" and he started to push off the chair's arm rests attempting to stand up. I secured [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm and Officer Herrera secured [CNP REDACTION]'s right arm. [CNP REDACTION] continued to stand and attempted to pull away from my grip. As [CNP REDACTION] was standing, I observed the black handle of a knife extending from the small of his back near the belt line. [CNP REDACTION] continued to try to pull his arm towards his body and yelled "Let go of me!" I ordered [CNP REDACTION] several times to stop resisting. [CNP REDACTION] attempted to pull his arm towards the direction of the knife. I used a leg sweep technique on [CNP REDACTION]. I continued to hold John's left arm and directed him towards the ground. [CNP REDACTION]'s chin struck the ground as he was directed down. Officer Herrera and I secured [CNP REDACTION]'s hands with handcuffs which were double locked and checked for fit. I recovered the knife from [CNP REDACTION]'s belt. During a search of [CNP REDACTION] an additional knife was discovered in his front left pants pocket. After [CNP REDACTION] was searched, I observed that he was [EPD REDACTION] An ambulance was requested to treat [CNP REDACTION]'s injury. No other injuries were observed or reported by [CNP REDACTION].16-3245612/30/1602/12/2021Tyson1155th WardLeg Sweep62MWAggravated Domestic Assault (2 counts) and Resisting a Peace Officer (1 count)Domestic Disturbance/Radio AssignmentLightNONEN/ARedactedN/AJohn CepaChin Striking the GroundRedacted2502Tyson; HerreraNoReport of Domestic Disturbance - Arrestee resisted arrest, had knife placed along small of back
On 05/25/2020 at approximately 2147 hours I (Detective Tyson #115) responded with additional units to the area of [CNP REDACTION] for a 911 report of a subject who had climbed through a window and was currently battering a female inside. While I was still en-route, initial units on scene advised the offender, who was described as a light complexion male black wearing a red t-shirt, had left the location. At approximately 2155 hours while traveling west on [CNP REDACTION], I observed a male subject (later identified as [CNP REDACTION] DOB. [EPD REDACTION] walking east on Foster street. I observed that [CNP REDACTION] was a light complexion male black and he had a red t-shirt wrapped around his head. I conducted an investigative street stop of [CNP REDACTION] . I advised [CNP REDACTION] that he was being audio and video recorded on my body worn camera. I advised [CNP REDACTION] he was being detained for an investigation into a disturbance which had occurred west of our location. [CNP REDACTION] denied being involved in any disturbance. [CNP REDACTION] placed his hands inside his pants pockets multiple times when asked if he had identification. I observed these pockets to have visible bulges. Fearing for my safety, I conducted a safety pat down of [CNP REDACTION] for any weapons with negative results. I asked [CNP REDACTION] for his name. [CNP REDACTION] provided [EPD REDACTION] and his correct date of birth. I checked this name through dispatch. During that time, units on the scene at [CNP REDACTION] advised [EPD REDACTION] was the reported offender involved in the Battery. [CNP REDACTION] again denied being involved in any disturbance. I asked [CNP REDACTION] again where he was traveling from and he stated "a friend's house". [CNP REDACTION] denied any knowledge of where the friend's house was located. Additional units arrived on scene at [CNP REDACTION]. These units advised there was a witness at [CNP REDACTION] that was available for a show-up identification. I advised [CNP REDACTION] he was being placed in temporary custody while we continued the investigation. I secured [CNP REDACTION] in handcuffs which were checked for proper fit. I walked [CNP REDACTION] approximately 15 feed to a marked squad. As I was moving [CNP REDACTION] to the squad, he attempted to turn his right arm while it was inside the handcuff. This caused the right handcuffed to raise slightly up his wrist. I was assisted by a another officer in checking and double locking the handcuffs. During that time, [CNP REDACTION] stated the right handcuff felt too tight. This handcuff was immediately loosened. Both handcuffs were checked again for proper fit and double locked. Prior to him being placed inside the squad, [CNP REDACTION] was asked by me and the assisting officer if he was okay with the handcuff's fit. Edwards stated "yes". After [CNP REDACTION] was secured in the squad, I responded to [CNP REDACTION] to assist with the investigation. I had no additional interaction with Edwards during the rest of the investigation or his subsequent arrest for Domestic Battery. I reviewed my body worn camera prior to completing this report.20-40805/31/2016/12/2021Tyson1155th WardHandcuffing20MBDomestic BatteryRadio/On-ViewNight/Lighted RoadN/AN/AN/AN/AN/AN/AN/A701 Tyson; additional unitsYesInvestigative Street Stop - Follow up to reported Domestic Battery
I, Officer Vasquez, assisted Officer Robbins in detaining [EPD REDACTION] who fled on foot. [EPD REDACTION] fell on the porch of [CNP REDACTION] in which Officer Robbins tried to gain control of [EPD REDACTION] while being on top of him. I was assisting Officer Robbins when a subject identified as Jackson, Malik jumped on top of Officer Robbins and wrapped his arms around him. Jackson would not let go of Officer Robbins after several verbal commands. I unsuccessfully tried to pull [CNP REDACTION] off of Officer Robbins. I then initiated 2-3 right-handed closed fist punches to [CNP REDACTION]'s abdomen area with no effect. Moments later, other assisting officers arrived on scene and were able to remove [CNP REDACTION] from Officer Robbins.

I, Officer Vasquez, responded to the Howard street red line area for a Chicago report of a man possibly shot. Chicago provided a description of the offender. I observed a subject matching the description in the north alley of the 600 blk of Howard and subsequentally the victim advised that subject was indeed the offender. I activated my emergency lights and put my spot light on the subject in the 700 blk of Dobson. I gave loud verbal commands to the subject (later identified as [EPD REDACTION]) "Hey buddy come here real quick, keep your hands up." I yelled at [EPD REDACTION] again, "Come here put your hands up right now". [EPD REDACTION] then started to run west bound and eventually cut south bound into the yard between [CNP REDACTION]. While running [EPD REDACTION] was holding a plastic bag with his right hand and his left hand was on his pants/waistband. [EPD REDACTION] made it to a wooden fence to the south alley. I drew my firearm and told [EPD REDACTION] to come here. [EPD REDACTION] attempted to climb over the fence. I transitioned from my firearm to my taser and stated out loud "You're gonna get tased" twice. [EPD REDACTION] already demonstrated an intention to be violent by firing shots at a victim and reasonably appeared to be a potential threat to harm officers or others if not taken into custody. Based on the totality of the circumstances of [EPD REDACTION] matching the description of an offender with a possible firearm, the ignoring of my loud verbal commands, fleeing and attempting to jump over a fence to elude me. I deployed my taser and tased. [EPD REDACTION] knocked down the fence and fell on top of the fence. The taser hit [EPD REDACTION] in his buttocks area. I told [EPD REDACTION] to show me his hands and he complied. [EPD REDACTION] was handcuffed by Sgt. Carter. A loaded Titan Tiger .38 was subsequently recovered. It should be noted I reviewed my body camera footage prior to writing this report.19-3271/15/1915/12/2021Vasquez1748th WardTaserRedactedMBRedactedMatched flash description of subject with a gunstreet lights outside (night-time)N/AN/AN/AN/AN/AN/AN/A2602 Vasquez; CarterYesReport of person shot - Victim identified arrestee, arrestee fled and was subsequently Tased
On 5/27/20 at approximately 20:30 hours I, Det. Velez (151), attempted to take [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] into custody for Obstruction of an investigation, Disobedience to Police, Obstructing the Roadway, and Disorderly Conduct (see field general for further details. [CNP REDACTION] was observed in front of his residence [CNP REDACTION] engaged in a hand-to-hand transaction with a vehicle (IL reg# [EPD REDACTION]) stopped in front of his residence. [CNP REDACTION] observed us pulling our squad car up and immediately retreated into his residence and observed us turn our squad around to head in the direction of the vehicle he left. Det.'s Shanas, Wideman, and myself affected an investigative stop on said vehicle at the [CNP REDACTION]. The investigative stop revealed a suspended driver and felony amounts of narcotics (see field general for futher). At this point, I observed [CNP REDACTION] traveling W/B on Church and partially hanging out the passenger window as he approached the investigation site. [CNP REDACTION] yelled "What the fuck is y'all on?" The vehicle immediately pulled over just West of the investigation and [CNP REDACTION] exited walking E/B in the W/B traffic lane of Church. [CNP REDACTION] produced an object with a light on it and began walking directly towards the investigation. Knowing [CNP REDACTION] had a relationship with the vehicle and observed us diverting our route to follow it, I asked [CNP REDACTION] not to interfere with the traffic stop and to stay where he was. [CNP REDACTION] walked around me and continued E/B approaching the vehicle, not attempting to go to the South side walkway of Church ave. [CNP REDACTION] positioned himself behind Det. Shanas forcing him to turn his attention away from the traffic stop and towards [CNP REDACTION]. I ordered [CNP REDACTION] to put his hands behind his back for disobeying my orders and [CNP REDACTION] continued walking away ignoring my order. As [CNP REDACTION] continued walking away I turned away from him towards Det. Shanas and Wideman. [CNP REDACTION] began coming back towards the investigation again and I was forced to again address his presence. [CNP REDACTION] began to retreat again when back-up units arrived and [CNP REDACTION] began running from them also. [CNP REDACTION] ran E/B on Church continuing to obstruct traffic, and then S/B on Asbury also obstructing traffic. [CNP REDACTION] then resisted away from Ofc. Vasquez, causing both [CNP REDACTION] and Ofc. Vasquez to fall, and then attempted to elude Ofc. Pack and myself. It should be noted, [CNP REDACTION] was not wearing clothing on his upper torso when he fell. [CNP REDACTION] double back away from Ofc. Vasquez towards Ofc. Pack and I. Ofc. Pack attempted to grab [CNP REDACTION] by his left hand and upper body and [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist via pulling away. I attempted to control [CNP REDACTION] by his upper body and later right arm as we performed a "takedown" by guiding [CNP REDACTION] to the ground and ordering his hands behind his back. We gave [CNP REDACTION] several loud clear verbal commands to place his hands behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] stiffened his arms before we ultimately were able to gain control of both hands, handcuffing and double locking for fit. Upon arrival, [CNP REDACTION] was seen by [EPD REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] exhibited [EPD REDACTION], which were photographed via an Evanston Police Evidence Technician. See field general for further details.

[CNP REDACTION] was standing up after falling to the ground. As he stood up, I grabbed his left arm/ wrist, placing it behind his back in order to handcuff him. As I did this, [CNP REDACTION] attempted to pull his arm free from my grasp. I verbally ordered [CNP REDACTION] to stop resisting several times. Although [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist, I, along with Officer Robbins (226) were able to handcuff him with two sets of handcuffs. Once handcuffed, [CNP REDACTION] continued to actively resist, flexing his arms, wrist, and upper torso in an attempt to get out of the handcuffs. [CNP REDACTION] was then placed into Police squad car 44 and transported to Evanston Police Department for processing. Once in the squad car, [CNP REDACTION] made no claims as to being injured in any way.[16-3242712/28/1615/12/2021Vera2468th WardSoft, open hand, handcuffs24MBDomestic Criminal Damage, Battery to Police Officer, Domestic Battery (2)AssignmentDarkness, Lighted StreetsN/Aleft emptyRedactedleft emptyJoshua T Worth IIIHandcuffingRedacted15/145902Vera; RobbinsNoNarrative starts with Arrestee "standing up after falling to the ground."

I, Officer Vera (246) on 6-23-17 responded to a call of a battery at [CNP REDACTION]. While on scene, I located the offender, [CNP REDACTION]. While attempting to arrest [CNP REDACTION], [CNP REDACTION] resisted by raising his hands in front of his face and closed both fists. Fearing that I was going to receive a battery from [CNP REDACTION], I grabbed [CNP REDACTION] by his left arm and shirt. I then took [CNP REDACTION] to the ground and attempted to place handcuffs on him. He continued resisting while on the ground, disobeying commands and placing his hands on his chest. I then grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm once again and was able to secure one handcuff. With the assistance of Officer Witt (127) I was able to grab his right hand and secure the handcuff. [CNP REDACTION] continued resisting with handcuffs on. He tried to break free from my grip and refused to enter the back of the police car. [CNP REDACTION] used his feet in an attempt to prevent entry into the police squad car. With the assistance of Officer Witt, I was able to grab [CNP REDACTION]'s feet, while Officer Witt grabbed his torso and secure [CNP REDACTION] in the back of the police squad car.17-60766/23/1724/11/2021Vera2461st WardEmpty hand control technique53MBBattery & Assault to Police OfficerAssignmentDaylightN/AN/ARedactedN/AMichael BufordTakedown While being taken into custodyRedacted15/145902 Vera; WittNoUnclear crime committed - UoF occurred during resisting arrest

On 05/31/16 at approximately 0348hrs, I. Officer Virani #163, responded to a burglary in progress call at [CNP REDACTION]. The caller stated that a male in dark clothing had burglarized the business at [CNP REDACTION]. As I pulled up, dispatch stated that the subject was walking on [CNP REDACTION]. Upon observing the suspect, later identified as [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION], I exited my marked squad car. [CNP REDACTION] observed me and Det. Geyer and began running southbound on [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] continued running eastbound on [CNP REDACTION] and then southbound through the east alley of the 800 block of [CNP REDACTION]. Officer Niedziela #118 followed our radio traffic and drove his marked squad car down the east alley of [CNP REDACTION] in an attempt to intercept [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] then started running eastbound down a gangway towards the 800 block of [CNP REDACTION]. Officer Niedziela was in front of myself and Det. Geyer. I observed [CNP REDACTION] run northbound on [CNP REDACTION] and then immediately southbound on [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] was taken down by Officer Niedziela along the east curb in the 800 block of [CNP REDACTION]. I observed [CNP REDACTION] holding both of his arms under his torso despite out verbal commands from Officer Niedziela to stop resisting. Due to [CNP REDACTION] ignoring multiple, loud verbal commands to stop resisting and to place his hands behind his back, I performed a closed fist hand strike to the right cheek area of [CNP REDACTION]'s face using my right hand. At this point, [CNP REDACTION]'s arms were placed behind his back and he was handcuffed by Officer Niedziela. See Ofc.

On 07/18/16 at approximately 0004hrs, I, Officer Virani #163, was on routine patrol driving northbound on Sherman from Greenleaf. I observed a vehicle bearing IL plate [CNP REDACTION] travelling northbound on Sherman, approaching Crain. The rear registration light was inoperable and the vehicle disobeyed a stop sign at Crain and Sherman. I performed a traffic stop on the vehicle at [CNP REDACTION] and made contact with the driver, [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] A LEADS check revealed his driver's license was revoked. After detecting an odor of alcoholic beverage emanating from [CNP REDACTION], I performed a Standardized Field Sobriety Tests on [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] was placed in custody for DUI and placed in the rear of my squad car. I performed an inventory search on [CNP REDACTION]'s vehicle and returned to the rear passenger side of my vehicle where [CNP REDACTION] was seated. I was attempting to inform him that his vehicle would be towed from the scene. I opened the door at which point [CNP REDACTION] immediately kicked the door open and forced his way out of the vehicle in an attempt to escape. Both of [CNP REDACTION]'s feet were on the ground. I used an open hand technique and pushed [CNP REDACTION] on his chest in order to get him back inside of the vehicle. The struggle with [CNP REDACTION] began at 0034hrs and continued until 0039hrs. During this struggle, [CNP REDACTION] repeatedly kicked his legs towards my torso and eventually kicked my right leg just above my knee. Due to [CNP REDACTION] not complying and his constant escalation of resistance, I performed a closed fist hand strike twice with my right hand to the face of [CNP REDACTION] in order to stun him and gain compliance. It should be noted that [CNP REDACTION] claimed he was being choked during the struggle. [CNP REDACTION] had made multiple threats of spitting on me. I used an open hand technique to push on the jawline of [CNP REDACTION] in order to move his head, and subsequently his body, towards the interior of the vehicle. At no point did [CNP REDACTION] lose consciousness. He was able to breathe and yell at all times during the struggle. Eventually, [CNP REDACTION] was secured inside of the squad car and transported to EPD.16-204897/18/1619/09/2021Virani1634th WardClosed fist hand strike49MBAgg Battery to PO, Agg DUI, Agg Revoked DL, Resisting POOn view traffic stopNighttime, street lightingDNAleft emptyRedactedleft emptyLashawn StewartPhysical altercation with officers while resisting arrestRedacted2601ViraniNocar plate # not redactedTraffic Stop - revoked DL
On 10/08/2016 at approximately 0108 hours, I, Officer Virani #163, responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a call of a battery. Upon arrival, several subjects were on scene. I along with Sergeant Wernick #5 made initial contact with [CNP REDACTION]. Due to [CNP REDACTION]'s close proximity to the victim, [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] we gave multiple loud verbal commands for [CNP REDACTION] to move back away from the immediate area. [CNP REDACTION] ignored our repeated commands and was warned that he would be arrested. [CNP REDACTION] continued to ignore commands and we therefore advised him that he was being arrested for disobedience to police on the public way. [CNP REDACTION] was given loud verbal commands to place his hands behind his back but refused. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s left wrist and attempted to pull his hand behind his back in order to place him in handcuffs. I attempted this twice, both times with [CNP REDACTION] aggressively pulling his arms to the front of his body in order to defeat the arrest. To gain control of [CNP REDACTION], as I was standing behind him I placed my right arm over [CNP REDACTION]'s right shoulder and across the top of his chest. I pulled back and brought [CNP REDACTION] to the ground. While on the ground, [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist and would not roll over onto his stomach. We were able to turn [CNP REDACTION] over and place his hands behind his back and handcuff him. Officer Nawotka #243 was assisting in placing [CNP REDACTION] under arrest and [EPD REDACTION] during the process.

On 02/05/2017 at approximately 0135 hours, I, Officer Virani #163 was driving westbound on Grove, approaching Ridge. A cab driving northbound on Ridge at Grove flagged me down for a dispute on the destination the passengers were going to. Due to the unexpectedness of the incident, I exited my squad car without activating my in-car audio and video system. I made contact with the rear driver's side passenger [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION], who stated that he had to urinate. I explained to him several times that he needed to stay in the car after he requested to step out of the vehicle and urinate in public. [CNP REDACTION] stated that he urinated himself inside of the cab. I turned my flashlight on and shined it inside of the vehicle. As I was talking to [CNP REDACTION], he became irritated that my flashlight was illuminating the interior of the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] gritted his teeth, causing his jaw to visibly clench. [CNP REDACTION] grabbed my left forearm, which was resting on the lower portion of the window frame of the rear driver's side door. I told [CNP REDACTION] to let go of my arm. He did not and continued to hold onto it as I pulled my arm back. [CNP REDACTION] continued to hold my forearm and pulled it back in toward the vehicle. I again pulled my arm back but was unable to free my arm. Due to [CNP REDACTION]'s actions and him refusing my verbal commands, I performed a closed fist hand strike with my right hand to the nose of [CNP REDACTION] in order to stun him and release my arm from his grip. This method proved successful. I then opened the rear driver's side door and ordered [CNP REDACTION] out of the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] stayed within the vehicle and ignored my verbal commands to exit the vehicle. I then pulled on the back of [CNP REDACTION]'s shirt collar and again gave a verbal command to exit the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] still ignored my commands. Due to this, I pulled [CNP REDACTION] out of the vehicle while holding his collar and performed a forward take down from his seated position in the vehicle to the ground outside of the vehicle. I was then able to place [CNP REDACTION] into handcuffs, which were tension checked and locked.17-11512/5/1724/09/2021Virani1634th WardHand strike/Controlled takedown44MWBatteryOn-viewNighttime, street lightingN/Aleft emptyRedactedleft emptyAgustin ChaparroDuring forward takedownRedacted2601ViraniNoOfficer flagged down for directions - Passenger not allowed to get out to urinate, grabbed officer's arm and would not let go when officer shined light in face
On 06/10/2017 at approximately 0017 hours, I, Officer Virani #163, responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a check well-being call in which a male subject was possibly overdosing. Upon arrival, I encountered two females and one male in front of location that were related to the call. I advised all three that I would need their information for the report. One of the females, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], [EPD REDACTION], began to walk away and ignored verbal commands to stay on scene. [CNP REDACTION] had not given his name at this point. I asked if he was [CNP REDACTION] since he looked familiar to me, to which he stated that he was. I advised him that I recognized him from an incident at [CNP REDACTION] from last year in which [CNP REDACTION] was arrested by myself and other officers. This caused [CNP REDACTION] to become more upset knowing that I was involved with his arrest in that incident. [CNP REDACTION] stated that he would beat my ass if I weren't wearing my uniform and that he would "catch me outside" of work. As [CNP REDACTION] was threatening me verbally, he spat on the ground near my feet. [CNP REDACTION] took a bladed stance and clenched his fists, at one point punching his fist into his hand, and stated that he was going to beat my ass. [CNP REDACTION] was also within arms reach of me, approximately a foot away. Due to [CNP REDACTION]'s physical stance with him being taller than me with a muscular build, as well as his bladed stance and clenched fists. I believed I was in immediate danger of receiving a battery from [CNP REDACTION]. Due to being in fear of receiving a battery, I performed one open hand strike using my right hand to the left side of [CNP REDACTION]'s face so as to stun him. This proved effective, at which point both myself and Officer Jones #214, were able to place [CNP REDACTION] in handcuffs without further incident. It should be noted that during this incident, Officer Jones was continually giving orders to [CNP REDACTION] to calm down, which [CNP REDACTION] ignored. The handcuffs were tension checked and locked. [CNP REDACTION] was transported to the Evanston Police Department for further processing.17-54966/10/1708/11/2021Virani1633rd WardOpen hand palm strike21MWAggravated Assault to a Police OfficerRadio assignmentNighttime, street lightingDNADNARedactedDNaParker Cavaliers, Ofc.

On 09/28/2017 at approximately 0015 hrs. Officer Harvey #133 and I, Officer Virani #163, responded to the area of [CNP REDACTION] for a man with a gun call. TAC officers were in a foot chase with two suspects that were armed and dangerous in the area and had requested additional assistance. While standing in the [CNP REDACTION], I heard two loud gunshots come from the southeast of our location. The gunshots sounded extremely close by an estimated 30 yards. An unknown male in an apartment window on the east side of Ashland yelled out to myself and Officer Harvey, "You better go get them! I'm recording!" He stated several times that we better go get them. Approximately 2 seconds after him stating this, I looked to the southeast and observed two male blacks walking away from us. This was the same area that I heard the gunshots coming from. The males were later identified as [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] and [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION]. Both males matched the descriptions put out by dispatch. Both subjects began walking southbound away from us into Willye White Park. Myself and Officer Harvey approached tactically with our guns drawn and gave multiple loud, verbal commands for both subjects to stop and get on the ground. Both subjects continued walking away from us. I noticed [CNP REDACTION] look over his left shoulder at me and continue to ignore our verbal commands despite both officers having our guns drawn. Officer Harvey removed his taser from its holster and placed it on the back of [CNP REDACTION] and directed him to the ground. At this time, [CNP REDACTION] had complied and gotten on the ground. [CNP REDACTION] turned fully toward Officer Harvey and continued to refuse verbal commands. Based on the totality of the circumstances on hearing gunshots in close proximity to our location, seeing both subjects leaving the area, the ignoring of multiple verbal commands, and that [CNP REDACTION] matched the description of one of the subjects with a gun, I feared he was turning toward us in an attempt to either batter us or use a weapon against us. Due to this, I unholstered my taser and deployed it, striking [CNP REDACTION] in his lower torso. [CNP REDACTION] went to the ground and eventually turned over onto his stomach. Assisting officers arrived on scene and placed him in handcuffs.17-97079/28/1719/09/2021Virani163Roger's ParkTaser Deployment37MBParole Violation WarrantRadio assignmentNighttime, street lightingDNADNARedactedDNARafael A.

On 04/30/2019 at 1720hrs, I, Officer Virani #163, responded to a retail theft report at Whole Foods located at 1640 Chicago Ave. Officer Golubski #240 requested an assist unit due to a female offender, now identified as [CNP REDACTION], who was being uncooperative. Once on scene, [CNP REDACTION] was advised that she was under arrest. I took hold of [CNP REDACTION]'s left hand and arm. I immediately felt [CNP REDACTION] tense her left arm and attempt to pull it back in front of her torso. I was unable to get [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm behind her back to secure it with handcuffs. Due to [CNP REDACTION] resisting, I pushed [CNP REDACTION] onto her back while she was still situated in front of the chair. The chair tipped over backwards and the back of [CNP REDACTION]'s head struck a table while being escorted to the ground. Once on the ground, [CNP REDACTION] was on her back. [CNP REDACTION] then kicked me with her foot (unknown leg). [CNP REDACTION]'s foot struck the front of my lower left leg. Officer Golubski and I were able to get [CNP REDACTION] onto her stomach and a handcuff secured on her left wrist. [CNP REDACTION]'s right arm was under [CNP REDACTION]'s torso. [CNP REDACTION] refused to remove her right arm and hand from underneath her torso. I was able to pull [CNP REDACTION]'s right arm from under her torso. [CNP REDACTION] was still holding her cell phone. It was difficult to secure the right handcuff to [CNP REDACTION]'s right wrist with the cellphone in her hand. I used joint manipulation (pain compliance) to [CNP REDACTION]'s left thumb, which caused her to release hold of her cell phone. [CNP REDACTION]'s left hand was then secured. I reviewed my body worn camera prior to authoring this report.19-341504/30/1929/11/2021Virani1631st WardTakedown, Joint Manipulation24FWRetail Theft, Resisting Arrest, BatteryRadio AssignmentInterior lightingDNADNADNADNADNADNADNA2702 Virani; GolubskiYesAssist on Reported Retail Theft - UoF occurred due to noncompliant arrestee
While responding to a medical call at [CNP REDACTION], Commander M. Sacluti #916, Sergeant J. Bush #10, Officer N. Jones #215, Officer J. Herrara #195 and I confronted a subject, later identified as [CNP REDACTION]. The subject was running around the hotel room upon our arrival and disobeying orders from Evanston Fire and Rescue who were already on-scene attempting to assist [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] pushed away one of the Evanston Firefighter's hands as he attempted to assist him. [CNP REDACTION] had dilated pupils, appeared nervous, and was actively disobeying our commands to stop moving around the room. It appeared [CNP REDACTION] was under the influence of an unknown narcotic due to his erratic behavior. We attempted to speak to [CNP REDACTION] and calm him down, however, our efforts were unsuccessful. [CNP REDACTION] jumped up on the couch and jumped off, advancing towards officers on-scene. Commander Sacluti, Officer Herrera, Sergeant Bush and I attempted to gain control of [CNP REDACTION] by using open hand control techniques. We attempted to assist [CNP REDACTION] to the ground, however, he was able to keep his footing defeating several attempts at sweeping his legs out from under him. Eventually we were able to assist [CNP REDACTION] to the ground in the doorway of the room/hallway, at which time he broke free, crawled out of his jeans, and began exiting the room, at this point completely naked. Sergeant Bush requested a Taser be deployed. Commander Sacluti requested more units respond and requested an officer with a Taser respond to our location. Officer N. Jones then deployed his Taser, striking [CNP REDACTION] in the back. [CNP REDACTION] fell to the ground and immediately stood up and began running down the hallway. [CNP REDACTION] began running down the hallways towards a floor-to-ceiling window. Officer N. Jones, Officer Herrera, Sergeant Bush, Commander Sacluti, and myself began pursing [CNP REDACTION] down the hallway and were able to catch up to him. We were able to use open hand control techniques to assist him to the ground. [CNP REDACTION] continued to actively defeat our efforts to take him into custody and disobeyed our verbal commands to stop resisting. Officer Jones gave [CNP REDACTION] several drive stun's with the Taser which did not subdue. I delivered several knee strikes to the middle of [CNP REDACTION]'s back with my right knee, as well as several strikes to the back of his head with a closed right fist, in an attempt to subdue him. Eventually, we were able to place handcuffs on [CNP REDACTION] and take him into custody.

On 01/22/2018 at approximately 0500 hours, I (Sergeant A. Wernick #5) responded to [CNP REDACTION] to assist with a battery investigation and subsequent traffic stop related to the case. While assisting with the traffic stop, the backseat passenger-side passenger, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], had his hands in a position where I could not see them. I opened the vehicle door in order to see [CNP REDACTION]'s hands. I activated my body worn camera and advised [CNP REDACTION] I was recording him. I instructed [CNP REDACTION] to place his hands up so I could see them. [CNP REDACTION] stated his hands were up and "fuck you." I instructed [CNP REDACTION] to place his hands on the back of the front passenger seat headrest and [CNP REDACTION] refused to do so. [CNP REDACTION] continued to use profanity towards me and was defiant in placing his hands where I could see them. I continued to advise [CNP REDACTION] to keep his hands were I could see them and he responded by reaching down on the floorboard of the vehicle. I advised [CNP REDACTION] to stop reaching down to the floor and he stated he was retrieving a book. I leaned into the vehicle to see [CNP REDACTION]'s hands, at which time I smelled the distinct odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from his mouth area. I instructed [CNP REDACTION] to show me his hands and he again reached towards the floor. At that time, I attempted to take control of [CNP REDACTION]'s hands due to the fact I was unsure if he was reaching for a weapon. [CNP REDACTION] resisted by pulling his hands away from me. I was able to gain control of [CNP REDACTION]'s hands and escorted him from the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] began to turn towards me, at which time Officer D. Pack #234 gained control of [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm. I performed a leg sweep with my left leg on [CNP REDACTION]'s right leg while Officer Pack and Officer N. Chipolet #132 assisted me taking [CNP REDACTION] to the ground. While taking [CNP REDACTION] to the ground, I landed on my left knee. [CNP REDACTION] had his hands under his body and resisted by refusing to put his hands behind his back as the officer's on-scene instructed. Officer Pack, Officer Chipolet, and I performed arm bar techniques and were able to bring [CNP REDACTION]'s arms behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] was subsequently handcuffed (checked for fit and double-locked). [CNP REDACTION] was placed in the back of Squad #69 and seatbelted in. I later determined my body worn camera was de-activated while gaining control of [CNP REDACTION] and I immediately activated it.

The following is an account of events leading up to the "use of Force" utilized today, June 18, 2016, to affect the arrest of [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] with a Date of Birth of DOB: [EPD REDACTION] After responding to call of a man fighting with a woman over her purse, I responded with other units to the [CNP REDACTION] . The suspect was described a "Black Male wearing a grey/white shirt and black pants". After arriving in the area and having monitored the broadcast description: 1. I observed a suspect matching the description that had been broadcast minutes earlier. I spotted a man walking south-bound in the 2300 block of Lawndale matching the description. 2. As I attempted to Affect a "Street Stop" to investigate further and conduct a field interview, the man fled 3. Having cause to believe a criminal act had occurred a short distance away and this man may have committed the offense, I was forced to pursue the man on foot. 4. The man ran through several private property yards including [CNP REDACTION]. 5. Loud, Clear verbal commands to STOP were given to the suspect throughout the foot pursuit, the suspect refused to stop and submit to interview or arrest. 6. In the 3000 Block of Grant, and in an effort to thwart further attempts at arrest, I removed my Police Department-issued TASER, activated the power and deployed it in accordance with departmental guidelines and training. Although there was a brief period where it appeared to work, the suspect managed to pull the prongs from his body (only a partial stun) 7. The suspect was able to flee again, I pursued. 8. I was eventually able to catch the subject again, where clear verbal commands continued to be given to stop. The suspect continued to fight (flail arms, run, get up from the ground, etc) and attempt to continue to flee. 9. At [CNP REDACTION], the TASER was finally successful (at [CNP REDACTION] near the winging gate) in gaining compliance and submission to arrest. In this cause, the deployment method was a "Drive-Stun". This method means that the device was now making direct contact with the resisting suspect and delivering charge which was able to disorient the suspect long enough to stop the fight. 10. The suspect was finally taken into custody with no injury to the suspect; however, I did sustain an injury that required medical evaluation at the Evanston hospital Emergency Room. 11. Please see police report for a more detailed account.16-169086/18/1607/11/2021Wideman2526th WardTaser deployment40MBFelony Theft, Resisting Arrest, Aggravated Assault, Disobedience to PoliceRadio Assignment/AssistingLight OutsideOfficer K.

On 5-15-19 at 0930hrs I took a hold of the right hand of a [CNP REDACTION] and place one handcuff on it. I then took a hold of her left hand and place the other handcuff on the left wrist. [CNP REDACTION] was handcuffed behind her back. [CNP REDACTION] pulled away several times and refused to walk with me away from traffic. The handcuffs were checked for fit several times and double locked. I reviewed my Body Camera footage prior to authoring this report.

In summary, on 04/29/18 at approximately 0052 hours I, Officer Witt #147 responded to 2121 Darrow #2C for a report of a domestic disturbance. Upon arrival I could hear lots of yelling and screaming coming from the second floor of the apartment building. As I approached apartment 2C I looked in the window and saw a physical struggle between two women (later identified as [EPD REDACTION] and [EPD REDACTION]) and a male (later identified a [CNP REDACTION]). I entered the apartment and saw [EPD REDACTION] and [EPD REDACTION] attempting to hold back [CNP REDACTION] in a small hallway near two bedrooms. I asked [EPD REDACTION] and [EPD REDACTION] to step away from [CNP REDACTION]. [EPD REDACTION] took a step back and then [CNP REDACTION] turned and pushed [EPD REDACTION] almost knocking her to the ground. I told [CNP REDACTION] "stop or you are going to get tased". I attempted to get in between [CNP REDACTION] and [EPD REDACTION] to prevent [CNP REDACTION] from battering [EPD REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] then turned, pushed me, then balled up both his fists in a fighting stance with his hands to his side, and took a step towards me. I then deployed my Taser striking [CNP REDACTION] in the chest with both prongs. [CNP REDACTION] went to his knees and I assisted him to the ground. I ordered [CNP REDACTION] to place his hands behind his back and [CNP REDACTION] was uncooperative. Officer Roden #124 arrived on scene and assisted me in handcuffing [CNP REDACTION]. I then called for a supervisor and an ambulance for Maurice. Evanston Fire Department Ambulance 21 arrived on scene and transported [CNP REDACTION] to [EPD REDACTION] for treatment.18-35474/29/1820/09/2021Witt1475th WardTaser53MBDomestic BatteryRadio call for disturbanceNight time lighted roomNANARedactedNAMaurice RowleyTaser Deploymentredacted502 Witt; RodenNoReport of Domestic disturbance - UoF used after arrestee pushed another person as well as officer
On 4/11/19 at 0713 hours, Officer Noble #159 and I, Officer Witt #147 responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a report of a vagrant inside the location. Upon arrival I spoke with a male (later identified as [CNP REDACTION]) who stated that he was at the location attempting to warm up from the cold. I asked [CNP REDACTION] for his name and he provided [CNP REDACTION] to me. I had recognized [CNP REDACTION] from previous contacts and asked him to remove his hood from his head. When [CNP REDACTION] was asked again for his name he gave [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] appeared nervous and kept asking if he could leave. I told [CNP REDACTION] that we had to run his name before he was free to leave. I called the Evanston Communications Bureau by phone to run [CNP REDACTION] because the radio reception was very poor in our location. At that time, another Officer Marx #145 told Officer Noble over the radio that [CNP REDACTION] had a warrant. [CNP REDACTION] then attempted to flee through the stairwell. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION] by the coat and arm and attempted to stop him. [CNP REDACTION] pulled away from me and then turned and attempted to push me away from him. I then struggled with [CNP REDACTION] attempting to get his hands so that I could apply handcuffs. [CNP REDACTION] then fell backwards onto the stair case leading to the third floor. I then pushed [CNP REDACTION] against the stairs in attempts to gain control of his arms. [CNP REDACTION] then stated to us that he was not resisting while pushing me away from him. [CNP REDACTION] also stated “Get the fuck off of me”. [CNP REDACTION] then stopped pushing and appeared as if he was going to comply due to Officer Noble telling him she was going to deploy her Taser if he did not comply with our directions. [CNP REDACTION] then struck me in my chest with both hands in a pushing motion causing my body worn camera to turn off. [CNP REDACTION] then pulled away again and attempted to run down the stairs to the main floor. Officer Noble deployed her Taser striking [CNP REDACTION] in the right shoulder and right pectoral muscle. Walker then fell to the ground and I was able to place handcuffs on [CNP REDACTION]'s wrists. [CNP REDACTION] became cooperative after he was placed into handcuffs. [CNP REDACTION] was walked down to the ground level and was seen by Evanston Ambulance 21. [CNP REDACTION] stated that he was uninjured and refused medical attention. See field general, ET report, and Supplemental report for further details. I reviewed my body worn camera prior to authoring this report.19-283104/11/1918/10/2021Witt1471st WardEmpty hand control tactics27MBAssault and resisting a peace officerRadio Assignment for vagrantDaylightKarl Witt #147Cuts on the hands while taking subject into custodyNARedactedNANANA1603 Witt; NobleYesReport of Vagrant - UoF used when report came back arrestee had warrant
On 3/6/16 I (OFC Yates #143) attempted to conduct a traffic stop with a black Nissan (IL [EPD REDACTION] in the East alley of the 300 block of [CNP REDACTION]. The vehicle failed to stop and committed numerous traffic violations as the driver, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], fled the area. The vehicle later stopped in front of [CNP REDACTION]. Upon approaching the vehicle I gave several clear and loud verbal commands for [CNP REDACTION] to show his hands. [CNP REDACTION] disobeyed my clear and loud verbal commands and rather began to reach about the inside of the vehicle. Fearing for my safety and the safety of my partner I began to attempt to take [CNP REDACTION] out of the vehicle at which point I advised [CNP REDACTION] he was under arrest. Assisting units then arrived on scene where we were able to open the driver's door. As we opened the driver's door I gave clear and loud verbal commands for [CNP REDACTION] to exit the vehicle which he did not do. Due to [CNP REDACTION]'s actions of reaching about the vehicle after being given several clear and loud verbal commands to show his hands and after refusing to comply with a lawful order to exit the vehicle, [CNP REDACTION] was taken out of the vehicle. I obtained control of [CNP REDACTION]'s right arm with Detective Cherrey #127 gaining control of his left arm. After gaining control of [CNP REDACTION]'s arms he was taken out of the vehicle and taken to the ground. Once on the ground [CNP REDACTION] tucked his arms underneath his body and began to thrash about in an effort to defeat his arrest. [CNP REDACTION] was given several clear and loud verbal commands to stop resisting and to place his hands behind his back which he did not comply with. [CNP REDACTION] continued to thrash about in an effort to defeat his arrest at which point Detective Cherrey deployed his chemical agent. Refer to Detective Cherrey's supplement for further information. After the chemical agent had been deployed [CNP REDACTION] placed his hands behind his back at which point he was handcuffed (double locked). [CNP REDACTION] was then transported to the Evanston Police Department for processing. Once at the Evanston Police Department, EFD responded to lock-up to provide medical attention to [CNP REDACTION] for his reaction to the chemical agent.16-591503/06/1616/12/2021Yates1438th WardTake Down37MWReckless driving, fleeing and eluding, resisting, disobedience to policeOn-viewDark with minimal street lightsN/ARedactedDino J LanzitoSubject was taken to the ground while actively resisting arrestRedacted1702Yates; CherreyNoTraffic Stop
On 4/27/16 I (OFC Yates #143) made contact with [CNP REDACTION] during a traffic stop at the intersection of [CNP REDACTION]. After making contact with [CNP REDACTION] I ordered him out of the vehicle which he refused to comply with. Assisting officer Thomas #204 then arrived on scene at which point we were able to unlock the rear passenger door and reach around to the driver's door to unlock and open it. Once the driver's door was opened I ordered [CNP REDACTION] out of the vehicle which he again refused to do. I then attempted to take him out of the vehicle at which time [CNP REDACTION] grabbed a hold of the steering wheel in an effort to remain inside of the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] was then taken out of the vehicle and escorted to the rear of the vehicle. Once outside the vehicle [CNP REDACTION] began to stiffen and flail his arms in an effort to defeat his arrest. I gave several clear and loud verbal commands for [CNP REDACTION] to place his hands behind his back which he refused to comply with. While attempting to gain control of [CNP REDACTION] to affect the arrest I attempted to grab ahold and control [CNP REDACTION]'s legs. While attempting to do this, [CNP REDACTION] continued to flail about and lost control of his balance as our feet became tangled at which point he fell to the ground. Once on the ground [CNP REDACTION] was then successfully placed under arrest (handcuffed). Once at the Evanston Police Department I asked [CNP REDACTION] if he sustained any injuries which he stated he did not. I offered medical attention to [CNP REDACTION] which he refused. [CNP REDACTION] was observed to have a [EPD REDACTION].

On 11/11/16 at approximately 17:49 my partner (OFC Kleinpaste #229 and I (OFC Yates #143) responded to the area of [CNP REDACTION] for a disturbance. Upon our arrival I observed a subject, later identified as [EPD REDACTION], standing on the sidewalk/parkway, holding a small wooden bat in her right hand. [EPD REDACTION] was observed to be waiving the small wooden bat in the air. [EPD REDACTION] was given several clear and loud verbal commands to drop the bat which she did not comply with. Due to [EPD REDACTION] lack of compliance and to ensure the safety of not only myself, my partner, and the public, but also [EPD REDACTION] I performed a takedown of [EPD REDACTION] which resulted in her being taken to the ground. Once on the ground [EPD REDACTION] was given clear and loud verbal commands to stop resisting and to put her hands behind her back. [EPD REDACTION] hands were assisted to the rear of her body at which point she was handcuffed (double locked) without further incident. [EPD REDACTION] was then transported to [EPD REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] did not complain of any injuries and was not observed to have any injuries.16-3076711/11/1630/11/2021Yates1438th WardTakedown52FBNone, Involuntary CommittalAssignmentStreet LightsN/Aleft emptyRedactedleft emptyN/Aleft emptyleft empty202Kleinpaste; YatesNoReport of a disturbance - UoF occurred when arrestee would not drop bat they were holding
On 5/30/17 at approximately 16:50 I (OFC Yates #143) was flagged down at [CNP REDACTION] in reference to a disturbance from Chicago and Lake. I was informed a male/black subject, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], took a woman's backpack and had run from the woman. Upon making contact with [CNP REDACTION] I grabbed a hold of his right shoulder and backpack strap which he was wearing in an effort to detain him for the disturbance investigation. As I made contact with [CNP REDACTION] he grabbed a hold of my left arm and refused to let go after he was given several verbal commands to do so. While [CNP REDACTION] was holding my left arm with his right hand his left hand was clenched in a fist. [CNP REDACTION] asked and I informed him that he was being detained at which point he began to pull away in an effort to defeat his arrest. While dealing with [CNP REDACTION] an unknown female/white subject, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], approached [CNP REDACTION] and me where she pulled my left arm and attempted to push me away from [CNP REDACTION]. I then pushed [CNP REDACTION] away in the upper chest/shoulder with an open palm. [CNP REDACTION] returned after being pushed away where she continued to try to pull me away from [CNP REDACTION]. I then grabbed [CNP REDACTION] by her sweatshirt in an effort to pull her away from me and [CNP REDACTION] so that I could affect the arrest of Gillett. Zineddine then grabbed the backpack [CNP REDACTION] was wearing and fled on foot, southbound on Chicago. I continued to attempt to place [CNP REDACTION] under arrest where he continued to pull away and tense his arm. In an effort to further gain control of [CNP REDACTION] I performed a takedown which resulted in [CNP REDACTION] falling to the ground and me falling on top of him. Once the ground [CNP REDACTION] refused to place his hands behind his back after being given several clear and loud verbal commands to do so. Assisting officers then arrived on scene and [CNP REDACTION] was placed in handcuffs without further incident. At some point after the takedown [CNP REDACTION] suffered an [EPD REDACTION] from the parking lot asphalt. [CNP REDACTION] was offered medical attention several times but refused.17-50845/30/1726/11/2021Yates1433rd WardTake Down18MBBatteryAssignmentDaylightN/AN/ARedactedN/AFabian A GillettTake downRedacted15/145901YatesNorace not redacted in narrative; second person's name not redactedReport of Disturbance - Officer grabbed fleeing arrestee, UoF occurred on further resistence
