Federal Grand Jury Probes Force by Ill. Sgt.

September 03, 2013  | 

A federal grand jury has begun investigating a suburban Chicago police department and one of its sergeants in a use of force probe, reports the Chicago Tribune.

The Midlothian (Ill.) Police Department received two subpoenas earlier this year—one seeking the personnel file of Sgt. Steven Zamiar and another seeking police logs and call records tied to three days in 2011, as well as the agency's use-of-force policy.

Zamiar has declined comment and Chief Harold Kaufman only acknowledged that numerous officers have been questioned in the inquiry.

One of the incidents in 2011 apparently revolves around Zamiar's use of a baton to subdue a suspect outside a bar at a time agency records show he had not clocked in.
