"Intemperate" Voice Mails
A Chicago Police commander might have sent "intemperate" voice mails to her former boyfriend -- a Chicago cop -- but he went overboard in getting a protection order against her and having her arrested, her attorney said Wednesday.
Cmdr. Penelope Trahanas was charged Tuesday night with misdemeanor telephone harassment of Officer Matthew Jackson. She has been stripped of her police powers until the case is fully investigated.
Jackson claims in court documents that Trahanas left voice mails last week "of an insulting and harassing nature." The calls suggested she could ruin his career and hinted at violence, he alleged.
But Trahanas' attorney Thomas Needham said the allegations have been overblown. "Regardless of whatever intemperate, unfortunate things she said in her voice mails to him, there is no need for an order of protection," Needham said.
- "If I ever get a chance to fuck you up on this job, I will, you pussy."
- "I am so glad to be done with you..I hate you so much..You are so lucky you are on the other side of town..I would knock the shit out of you....I can't stand you I hate you so much? You ain't even the real police, you are nothing but a fucking mailman, you are a glorified mail clerk that is all you are.. I hate you so much, you have no idea"
