Elton John and Billy Joel apparently have one awfully big fan on the Chicago Police Department.
And when the Rocket Man and Piano Man flew into Midway last month for a concert at Wrigley Field, they found officer friendly waiting for them on the tarmac.
We're told that officer is Commander Ruth Wedster, seen here in an interview with Fox Chicago in 1999.
Now she heads up the Chicago Police Training Academy where she remains on the job but under investigation for what would appear to be inappropriate behavior.
Wedster was not on any official police detail, but apparently convinced someone to escort her inside the fenced-off area to meet the singers.
And to guard against possible disciplinary actions (or cement your insider status), you use tickets (that you shouldn't have accepted) and drag Aunt Bea of the gun-infested coke house and J-Fed's best man into your scheme? Wow. Talk about middling your superiors. And she's still in a position to be in charge of teaching recruits about Ethics and Law?
What's the over/under on J-Fed actually applying any sort of even handed discipline to a politically heavy Commander, an apparently untouchable Deputy, and his bestest buddy from the FBI? Slim? Or none?
