Ald. Sharon Denise Dixon (24th) left a North Side police district this morning, offering no comment on her arrest Tuesday night on charges of drunken driving and obstructing a police officer.
Dixon walked out of the Belmont District station at about 9:40 a.m., refusing to comment as she was picked up by a female friend.But a former fiance and current administrative aide, reached by the Chicago Sun-Times, defended the alderwoman.
“I am just now talking to her,’’ said Frank Watkins. “It’s not true. She has a very different story.”
- "The police put that liquor on me" (2-1 odds)
- "The police are all racist stopping black folks" (3-1 odds)
- "I'm an alderperson - I can drive around police cars, over hoses and over the goddamn fireman if I feel like it" (7-1 odds)
- Obama! (7.5-1)
And Bea "the bartender" Cuello is the one who pulled the trigger when Dixon bitched DW wouldn't dance to her tune.
Tribune also covers.
UPDATE: WBBM 780 quotes the alderdrunk as saying, "I am not a power-trip alderman." We'll say she's full of shit on that count alone.
