A Chicago Police officer falsely reported a raucous bar fight so he could avoid a possible DUI arrest and flee the scene in northwest suburban Niles, Cook County prosecutors said Wednesday.
Sean Dailey, 33, was apparently hoping the suburban officer who had stopped him in the early morning hours of Nov. 5, 2010 would be asked to respond to the phony brawl at the Here’s Cheers bar on Oakton, prosecutors said.
The Niles officer did get called away, assistant state’s attorney Lynn McCarthy said. But en route, the officer’s colleagues relayed on the police radio that there was never a fight, so he returned to Milwaukee Avenue where Dailey had been parked. However, Dailey, an 11-year police veteran, was nowhere to be found, McCarthy said.
