Chicago Police Commander Faces Trial for Putting Gun in Suspect's Mouth

December 08, 2015  | 

A Chicago police commander who had been praised for his crime fighting in some of the city's roughest neighborhoods will go on trial on Tuesday on charges that he put a gun in a suspect's mouth, reports Reuters.

Glenn Evans, who was relieved of his duties pending the outcome of his case, was charged last year with aggravated battery and official misconduct in the capture of a suspect on Jan. 30, 2013.

Evans' trial comes a day after the U.S. Department of Justice said that it was conducting a civil rights investigation of the third-largest U.S. city's police department, including its use of force.

Evans, who is black, has been the subject of several police misconduct lawsuits, according to local media reports. His case will be tried by Cook County Criminal Court Judge Diane Cannon, without a jury.
