An Idiot Arrested
A man armed with a fake gun who impersonated a police officer has been charged after he ordered two people -- who happened to be off-duty Chicago Police officers -- out of the area early Tuesday in the Lincoln Square neighborhood on the North Side.
Juan Quintero, 25, of the 4600 block of North Monticello Avenue, was charged with impersonating a police officer, a felony, and aggravated assault for pointing a phony gun at the officers, according to police. Quintero was also charged with possession of a replica firearm, having no driver’s license and no insurance, according to a release from police News Affairs.
And does anyone at 35th Street care to explain why IAD is calling an entire desk crew down for interviews regarding a humorous fax sent to 003 regarding their security breach? Seems a waste of hundreds of man-hours and thousands of dollars for a few laughs.
