A man is facing a felony charge for allegedly pushing a Chicago police officer’s arm as the cop tried to move him back from the scene of a squad car crash on Friday afternoon. And he recorded it all on his phone.
Armed men committed at least seven holdups during a Saturday morning robbery spree that stretched from Bucktown and Wicker Park to the Near West Side, according to Chicago police reports. No arrests have been made.
The man who fired a gun in his Uptown apartment while on electronic monitoring for a felony gun case threw his weapon onto the roof of a nearby building during an hours-long standoff with police, prosecutors said.
