No Good Deed Goes Unpunished
- Three police officers rescued a 5-year-old boy who accidentally fell 10 feet into a hole and a man was Tased after allegedly punching the officer who scooped the child up after being lowered into the hole by his ankles Thursday night on the Northwest Side.
No one was seriously hurt and three men, including the man Tased, who allegedly punched the officers and fought with them were charged with misdemeanors, police said.
But while paramedics were trying to render aid to the child, a relative of the boy, 17, allegedly became “very belligerent,’’ and tried to climb into the ambulance. When medics called for police assistance, the teen allegedly punched Morrison in the chest, the report said.
While the teen was placed in handcuffs, another man on the scene — 29-year-old Pedro Bahena — allegedly became irate, and was yelling and swearing at the officers. Pinal tried to calm him down but Bahena then allegedly punched Pinal, who Tased Bahena and subdued him, the report said.
