CHICAGO — A suburban man who jumped on top of a Chicago police squad car while officers were investigating a shooting in the Loop last weekend had a loaded, stolen firearm tucked in his underwear, prosecutors say.
Officers were using marked squad cars to block access to the area as they investigated the shooting of a security guard during a carjacking attempt in the 100 block of West Van Buren around 4 a.m. on Sunday.
As cops worked the scene, Michal Walkosz-Kleta, 19, of Hickory Hills, “jumped on top of [an officer’s] marked squad car” in the 400 block of South Clark, according to a CPD arrest report.
Walkosz-Kleta went on to open the driver’s door of a squad car where cops were storing a firearm that was recovered during the shooting investigation, the report said. Officers immediately arrested him.
“A custodial search revealed that offender had a Springfield XDS 45 [caliber] semi-automatic handgun fully loaded … within his groin area beneath his underpants,” an officer wrote in the report.
Police determined that the gun found in Walkosz-Kleta’s undies had been reported stolen in Hazel Crest on May 25, the report said.
Prosecutors charged him with two counts of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, possession of a stolen firearm, and criminal trespass to a vehicle. Officers said he had no connection to the shooting they were investigating.
Judge Charles Beach ordered him to pay a $6,000 bail deposit to go home on electronic monitoring.
