On 3/8/16 at approximately 0305 hours I, Officer D. Pack responded to a call of a suspicious person in the rear of [CNP REDACTION]. I subsequently engaged [CNP REDACTION] in the back yard of [CNP REDACTION] as part of an ongoing investigation of said suspicious person call. I encountered [CNP REDACTION], who was concealing himself under the deck area of the above address, who I believed to be a subject who fled from an earlier traffic stop in which a loaded gun was recovered from a stolen vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] was given verbal commands to crawl out from under the deck and [CNP REDACTION] initially followed my instructions. After being physically removed from under the deck by Ofc. Virani, [CNP REDACTION] was ordered to place his hands behind his back which he refused to do. [CNP REDACTION] tensed his arms and thrashed around on the ground kicking his feet in the air. [CNP REDACTION] was advised to stop resisting multiple times, but continued to stiffen up and resist attempts by Ofc. Virani and Ofc. Reza to place him in handcuffs. At this point, believing the subject could be armed, and due to his actively resisting arrest, I placed my Taser against his left buttocks. I informed [CNP REDACTION] if he continued to resist arrest he would be tased. [CNP REDACTION] then slapped the Taser away from his body and attempted to roll over with his arms clenched to his side. I deployed my Taser for one five second burst using a drive-stun technique to the [CNP REDACTION]'s left buttocks. [CNP REDACTION] immediately ceased his attempts to resist arrest and was handcuffed without further incident.

On 8/4/16 at approximately 0007 hrs Ofc Pack *234 and I, Ofc Thomas *204, were in the area of Lyons and McDaniel and observed a group in Beck Park after hours. We conducted a street stop on the group and gave verbal commands to stop, where [CNP REDACTION] fled northbound through the park with me chasing. I gave [CNP REDACTION] several verbal commands to stop, with negative results. I observed [CNP REDACTION] hold the front of his waistband, with both hands, shake it back and forth, and then bend over at the waist. I drew my gun and again ordered him to stop, with negative results. As we were approaching Emerson I observed [CNP REDACTION] not to have anything in his hands and holstered my gun. [CNP REDACTION] ran northbound into Butler Park and in the rear of [CNP REDACTION], where he jumped the chain linked fence. [CNP REDACTION] fell onto his stomach, with his hands underneath him. I was going to attempt to jump the fence when [CNP REDACTION] stood up and squared up to me. I again ordered [CNP REDACTION] to stop, drew my taser, and observed him running to the front of the residence. I deployed my taser to affect the arrest, where the prongs successfully engaged. [CNP REDACTION] fell, where I stated to him not to move. Ofc. Velez *151 responded and successfully handcuffed [CNP REDACTION] . 16-22477 04/08/2016 28/10/2020 Thomas 204/1674 5th Ward Taser deployment Greater Grand Crossing, Chicago 18 M B 3/0 Invasion of Privacy, 1/0 Assault, 1/0 Larceny, 1/0 Obstructing On-View Dark None N/A Redacted N/A Dijon N Caffie Jumping a fence and taser ejection Redacted 26 0 3 Thomas; D.Pack; Velez No Street Stop - led to foot chase
[CNP REDACTION] was advised that she was under arrest for a domestic battery investigation, & obstructing justice. [CNP REDACTION] was advised that she was under arrest numerous times by myself. She was holding a 2 month old child and refused to allow the father to take possession of the juvenile. I was able to secure the right arm of [CNP REDACTION] and control her arm with soft open hand techniques. At this point the father, [EPD REDACTION], was able to safely take possession of the juvenile. [CNP REDACTION] stated I am not going to jail and began to flail her free left arm and she took a wide stance and refused to obey loud clear verbal lawful commands that she was under arrest. After a brief struggle Officers were unable to gain control of [CNP REDACTION]. I attempted to a single leg take down on [CNP REDACTION], but was unsuccessful. Officer Pack deployed his Taser for one five second burst and officers were able to place [CNP REDACTION] into handcuffs. 16-24618 25/08/2016 10/11/2020 Bush 10 8th Ward Open hand techniques 8th Ward 24 F B Domestic battery, resisting arrest, obstructing arrest, & child endangerment Radio Assignment Artificially lit Sergeant J.

On 8/24/16 at approximately 0300 hours I, Ofc. D. Pack #234 was assigned to assist other units at [CNP REDACTION] #3 during a domestic battery call. While on scene the offender, [CNP REDACTION] refused to comply with lawful commands given by other uniformed Police Officers on scene. [CNP REDACTION] was informed she was under arrest for domestic battery and obstructing a peace officer in the performance of his official duties. Other officers on scene, including Sgt. Bush, Commander Sacluti, Ofc. J. Dietrich, and Ofc. K. Popp attempted to place [CNP REDACTION] under arrest. [CNP REDACTION] was given verbal commands to place her hands behind her back. [CNP REDACTION] refused to comply and other officers on scene attempted to affect the arrest using non-impact control techniques. [CNP REDACTION] resisted the Officers attempts to handcuff her by tensing her arms and legs and taking a wide aggressive stance, preventing the officers from placing her arms behind her back. As other officers attempted to take [CNP REDACTION] to the ground she continued to resist their efforts by shuffling her feet and tensing her leg muscles while stating "you ain't taking me to jail". [CNP REDACTION] was informed if she continued to resist she was going to be tased. As other officers struggled to control [CNP REDACTION]'s arms and safely place her in handcuffs, she began to shuffle towards the dresser in the room. Believing other officers and [CNP REDACTION] might suffer injuries due to the small size of the room, I deployed my Taser for one five second burst using a drive-stun technique to [CNP REDACTION] lower right back area. [CNP REDACTION] immediately ceased her attempts to resist arrest and was handcuffed without further incident.

In summary, on 10-7-16 I monitored EPD radio traffic of a foot pursuit involving Detective Klopack and Officer Carrigan. I responded to the scene and assisted in setting up a perimeter, positioned at Dodge and Foster. I further monitored radio traffic that two wanted subjects were coming westbound on Foster towards Dodge. I observed two subjects coming towards me and immediately gave loud commands for the subjects to get on the ground. They did not immedately comply with my commands so I continued to give them as they walked away from me across Foster. Reluctantly, they slowed and slowly lay down on the ground. I immediately approached the closer of the two subjects, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], placed my knee on the large backpack that was worn on his back, and handcuffed both his wrists. 16-29428 08/10/2016 29/01/2021 Levy 9 5th Ward none Fuller Park, Chicago 16 M Redacted Possession of stolen property, disobedience to Police Radio Dark with artificial street lighting DNA DNA Redacted DNA Tris Mills Unknown DNA 5 0 3 Levy; Klopack; Carrigan No Foot Pursuit - UoF was while suspects were laying down - placing weight of knee onto backpack arrestee was wearing while handcuffing
On 11/15/16 at approximately 0333 hours Officer Kozlowski *196 and I, Officer Thomas *204 responded to [CNP REDACTION], [EPD REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] who reported a resident, [EPD REDACTION] was in the bathroom with a knife attempting to cut herself. Upon arrival we met with [EPD REDACTION] in the garden apartments, who lead us to [EPD REDACTION] was sitting in a bathtub with a knife in her hand. I observed [EPD REDACTION] grabbing at her ankle which was bleeding from a laceration. I unholstered my taser prior to engaging [EPD REDACTION] took cover behind a corner of the bathroom, and gave multiple commands to drop the knife. Each time [EPD REDACTION] refused to drop the knife. I explained to [EPD REDACTION] that if she refused any more than I would be forced to tase her. [EPD REDACTION] understood, stated she did not want to be tased, and further refused to drop the knife. As multiple officers arrived on the scene, [EPD REDACTION] was tased with a single 5 second burst. While being tased Officer Kozolowski grabbed the knife, which was still in her hand, and Officer Pack handcuffed [EPD REDACTION] EFD responded to the scene and transported [EPD REDACTION] NFI. 16-30878 15/11/2016 10/11/2020 Thomas 204 3rd Ward Taser Deployment 3rd Ward 18 F W NONE Radio assignment for armed (knife) subject threatening to harm self interior lighted DNA DNA Redacted DNA redacted Self-inflicted superficial knife wound to upper chest and right ankle.

On 1/19/17 at approximately 0120 hours I, Ofc. D. Pack #234 responded to the north bound Davis street EL Platform for a call of a man with a knife. Dispatch gave a description of a male white wearing blue jeans and a long green jacket waving a large knife at passengers waiting to get onto the train. Upon arrival I observed the subject, later identified [CNP REDACTION] was standing on the platform with his back turned towards me with his body concealed by the long green jacket. [CNP REDACTION] was given verbal commands to show me his hands and get on the ground. [CNP REDACTION] ignored my commands and began bending over reaching towards the black backpack that was at his feet. I kicked the back pack away from him and performed an emergency takedown, guiding him to the ground face down, while giving him verbal commands to put his hands behind his back, which he refused to do. [CNP REDACTION] tensed his arms underneath his body and ignored several more verbal commands to stop resisting and place his hands behind his back. At this point, believing the subject to be armed with a knife, and due to him actively resisting arrest, I placed my Taser against his back and informed [CNP REDACTION] if he continued to resist arrest he would be tased. [CNP REDACTION] continued to clench his arms under his body preventing assisting officers from placing him in handcuffs. I deployed my Taser for one five second burst aiming for the preferred target area of the large muscle group of his back and deployed the taser for a second five second burst using the drive stun technique. [CNP REDACTION] immediately ceased his attempt to resist arrest and was handcuffed without further incident. It should be noted that a subsequent search of the subject revealed a black pocket knife which was recovered from his left pants pocket. 17-593 19/01/2017 02/11/2020 D.Pack 234 1st Ward Taser Deployment Homeless 53 M W Resisting Arrest Radio Assignment, On-View Dark but on Lighted Platform None left empty left empty left empty None left empty left empty 0 1 D.Pack No Report of man with knife - Arrestee unarmed before and at time of UoF
On 19 January 2017 at approximately 0115 Hours I, Commander Sacluti #916, responded to Davis Street "el" located at 1618 Benson for a "man with a knife call." Upon arrival I observed a male subject, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], matching the exact description that was provided by the caller. I ordered [CNP REDACTION] to lie on the ground at least 3 times and he refused. [CNP REDACTION] then began reaching into his backpack which was situated right in front of him. At that point, [CNP REDACTION] was tackled at the ground by Officer Pack. I assisted Officer Pack in gaining control of [CNP REDACTION], however, [CNP REDACTION] refused to put his hands behind his back. I delivered one knee strike to [CNP REDACTION]'s left side. [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist despite numerous loud, clear verbal commands. As a result, PO Pack deployed his taser. After a brief struggle [CNP REDACTION] was able to be placed into custody (handcuffed) and was transported to [EPD REDACTION] for medical evaluation. It should be noted: during the struggle, [CNP REDACTION] yelled numerous times: "two black dudes just jumped me; they beat me!" Refer to field general and supplements for all further details. 17-593 19/01/2017 02/11/2020 Sacluti 916 1st Ward Knee Strike Homeless 53 M W Resisting, City Ordinance Radio assignment, assist unit Well-lit (superficial lighting) DNA DNA Redacted DNA Jeffrey Cobb (arrestee) Unknown (arrestee reported he was "jumped" by two male, black subjects just prior to police contact) Redacted 26 0 2 Sacluti; D.Pack No Report of man with knife - Arrestee unarmed before and at time of UoF
On 3/3/17 at approximately 2354 hours I, Ofc. D. Pack #234 responded to the north bound Davis street Metra Platform for a call of a person on the tracks. Dispatch stated a caller reported a man was laying down on the tracks possibly attempting to commit suicide. Upon arrival I observed [CNP REDACTION] standing on the north bound tracks as a Metra train approached the platform. [CNP REDACTION] was given verbal commands to exit the tracks. [CNP REDACTION] ignored my commands and continued walking toward the train. As the train pulled into the platform, and while it was still in motion, [CNP REDACTION] again ignored my commands to exit the tracks, and began to flee towards the front of the train. At this point, believing the subject was indeed attempting to harm himself, and not knowing if he possessed other means of doing so, I deployed my Taser for one five second burst from approximately 20 feet away with the target being [CNP REDACTION]'s back. The Taser deployment was unsuccessful due to excessive separation of the prongs based on the distance the Taser was deployed from. However, one of the prongs did stick into the loose end of the shirt [CNP REDACTION] was wearing, and [CNP REDACTION] immediately stopped running. I was then able to catch up to [CNP REDACTION] and grab his arm to guide him off of the tracks and onto the platform. After relocating [CNP REDACTION] to the platform I immediately placed him into handcuffs (double locked and checked for proper tension) and conducted a pat down for weapons. As I patted [CNP REDACTION] down he tensed his arms and attempted to grab my left hand as I held his hands behind his back during the pat down. I then guided [CNP REDACTION] to the ground where he began to roll around tensing his body. The pat down was subsequently completed while I held [CNP REDACTION] on the ground. No weapons or contraband were located on [CNP REDACTION]'s person. It should be noted that after completing the pat down I observed [EPD REDACTION] which were sustained while he was rolling around on the ground during the pat down.

I, Officer Neal was assisting Officer Thomas #204 chase a subject who fled from him and the scene of a crash. I observed a male subject, approximately 6 feet tall wearing a dark colored jacket and medium length hair running east on Emerson from the crash scene. In an attempt to prevent the fleeing subject from entering the roadway for his safety, I placed my vehicle in his path of travel approximately 50 feet in front of him. The subject ran around the rear of my vehicle into the middle of the street and continued running northeast. I exited my vehicle and yelled "Police, Stop!" The subject did not comply with my verbal commands and continued to flee. At this point, I am out of my vehicle and chasing the subject on foot. Considering the subject was actively disobeying, escaping a lawful arrest, made evasive maneuvers to defeat my attempt to detain him, perceived size difference, a potential to cause injury to officers or himself by running into the middle of street and ignoring verbal commands, I drew my Taser. I continued to chase the subject but it appeared that I was not gaining ground on the subject. I feared the subject was getting away as he began to head to the northwest corner of Ridge and Emerson where there was a blind left corner. The subject was approximately 20 feet in front of me and had a clear path to flee. At this time, I deployed my Taser aiming for the preferred target area, the back of the subject. The Taser appeared to miss or was ineffective. The subject turned left onto Ridge from Emerson and I continued to chase him. After closing the distance between us, I found myself in arm's length to grab him and take him down to the ground. As I went to grab him on his right collar area, the subject fell down to the ground. Officer D. Pack #234 arrived on scene and placed him in handcuffs. 17-4230 08/05/2017 01/11/2020 Neal 128 5th Ward Weaponless Impact Techniques 9th Ward 19 M B DUI On-View Night Time left empty left empty left empty left empty left empty left empty left empty 26 0 3 Neal; Thomas; D.Pack No Traffic Crash - foot pursuit of arrestee
On 5/30/17 at approximately 16:50 I (OFC Yates #143) was flagged down at [CNP REDACTION] in reference to a disturbance from Chicago and Lake. I was informed a male/black subject, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], took a woman's backpack and had run from the woman. Upon making contact with [CNP REDACTION] I grabbed a hold of his right shoulder and backpack strap which he was wearing in an effort to detain him for the disturbance investigation. As I made contact with [CNP REDACTION] he grabbed a hold of my left arm and refused to let go after he was given several verbal commands to do so. While [CNP REDACTION] was holding my left arm with his right hand his left hand was clenched in a fist. [CNP REDACTION] asked and I informed him that he was being detained at which point he began to pull away in an effort to defeat his arrest. While dealing with [CNP REDACTION] an unknown female/white subject, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], approached [CNP REDACTION] and me where she pulled my left arm and attempted to push me away from [CNP REDACTION]. I then pushed [CNP REDACTION] away in the upper chest/shoulder with an open palm. [CNP REDACTION] returned after being pushed away where she continued to try to pull me away from [CNP REDACTION]. I then grabbed [CNP REDACTION] by her sweatshirt in an effort to pull her away from me and [CNP REDACTION] so that I could affect the arrest of Gillett. Zineddine then grabbed the backpack [CNP REDACTION] was wearing and fled on foot, southbound on Chicago. I continued to attempt to place [CNP REDACTION] under arrest where he continued to pull away and tense his arm. In an effort to further gain control of [CNP REDACTION] I performed a takedown which resulted in [CNP REDACTION] falling to the ground and me falling on top of him. Once the ground [CNP REDACTION] refused to place his hands behind his back after being given several clear and loud verbal commands to do so. Assisting officers then arrived on scene and [CNP REDACTION] was placed in handcuffs without further incident. At some point after the takedown [CNP REDACTION] suffered an [EPD REDACTION] from the parking lot asphalt. [CNP REDACTION] was offered medical attention several times but refused. 17-5084 30/05/2017 05/01/2021 Yates 143 3rd Ward Take Down West Edgewater (Just north), Chicago 18 M B Battery Assignment Daylight N/A N/A Redacted N/A Fabian A Gillett Take down Redacted 15 0 1 Yates No race not redacted in narrative; second person's name not redacted Report of Disturbance - Officer grabbed fleeing arrestee, UoF occurred on further resistence
On 7/18/17 at approximately 0505 hours I, Ofc. D. Pack #234 responded to [CNP REDACTION] for an involuntary committal call. Dispatch informed me a subject barricaded himself in a restroom and was acting violent towards his mother. While speaking with the subject, Ofc. Nelson #233 was able to open the restroom door and the subject exited the restroom and immediately pushed officer Nelson. I attempted to gain physical control of [CNP REDACTION]'s arms to restrain him so paramedics could safely transport him to the hospital. [CNP REDACTION] repeatedly stated "fuck you you racist pigs" and began swinging his arms and kicking his legs to prevent Ofc. Nelson and I from restraining him. [CNP REDACTION] then clenched his right fist and swung it at me making contact with the left side of my face two times. Ofc. Nelson and I repeatedly told [CNP REDACTION] to stop fighting with us and place his hands behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] ignored our commands and began to kick at me. Fearing receiving further battery, and to effectively detain [CNP REDACTION] for a committal, I deployed my taser directly to [CNP REDACTION]'s torso for one 5 second burst, targeting the large muscle group in his abdomen. During the 5 second cycle of the taser, Ofc. Nelson and I were able to control [CNP REDACTION]'s arms and place handcuffs on him.

On 7/29/17 at approximately 2342 hours I, Ofc. D. Pack #234 responded to [CNP REDACTION] for an unwanted subject/city ordinance violation. I made my way up to the platform where I attempted to make contact with the subject later identified as [CNP REDACTION]. I asked [CNP REDACTION] to come speak with me but he refused and waked away from me. I caught up with [CNP REDACTION] at which point he turned around and stated, "I'm gonna fucking shoot you, don't run up on me, I'll fucking kill you". I informed [CNP REDACTION] he was under arrest for urinating in the elevator and instructed him to put his hands behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] refused and I attempted to take control of his arm so I could place him into handcuffs. [CNP REDACTION] attempted to pull away from me and I guided him up against the wall of the platform where I eventually placed him into handcuffs. Officer S. Brown #142 arrived on scene and assisted me in conducting a search of [CNP REDACTION]'s person for weapons or contraband. While we were searching Graham, he gathered saliva into his mouth and spit into the face of Officer Brown. The search was completed and [CNP REDACTION] was escorted off the platform to my squad care for transport to the Evanston Police Station. While walking [CNP REDACTION] into the squad car he began fighting with us again and kicked at Officer Brown several times while gathering saliva in his mouth again. In order to further battery to officers, and safely place him into my Police vehicle a takedown was conducted. I also utilized an open hand strike to [CNP REDACTION]'s face, to prevent him from spitting on Officers again. [CNP REDACTION] immediately became compliant and was subsequently placed into handcuffs for transport to EPD.

On 01/22/2018 at approximately 0500 hours, I (Sergeant A. Wernick #5) responded to [CNP REDACTION] to assist with a battery investigation and subsequent traffic stop related to the case. While assisting with the traffic stop, the backseat passenger-side passenger, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], had his hands in a position where I could not see them. I opened the vehicle door in order to see [CNP REDACTION]'s hands. I activated my body worn camera and advised [CNP REDACTION] I was recording him. I instructed [CNP REDACTION] to place his hands up so I could see them. [CNP REDACTION] stated his hands were up and "fuck you." I instructed [CNP REDACTION] to place his hands on the back of the front passenger seat headrest and [CNP REDACTION] refused to do so. [CNP REDACTION] continued to use profanity towards me and was defiant in placing his hands where I could see them. I continued to advise [CNP REDACTION] to keep his hands were I could see them and he responded by reaching down on the floorboard of the vehicle. I advised [CNP REDACTION] to stop reaching down to the floor and he stated he was retrieving a book. I leaned into the vehicle to see [CNP REDACTION]'s hands, at which time I smelled the distinct odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from his mouth area. I instructed [CNP REDACTION] to show me his hands and he again reached towards the floor. At that time, I attempted to take control of [CNP REDACTION]'s hands due to the fact I was unsure if he was reaching for a weapon. [CNP REDACTION] resisted by pulling his hands away from me. I was able to gain control of [CNP REDACTION]'s hands and escorted him from the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] began to turn towards me, at which time Officer D. Pack #234 gained control of [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm. I performed a leg sweep with my left leg on [CNP REDACTION]'s right leg while Officer Pack and Officer N. Chipolet #132 assisted me taking [CNP REDACTION] to the ground. While taking [CNP REDACTION] to the ground, I landed on my left knee. [CNP REDACTION] had his hands under his body and resisted by refusing to put his hands behind his back as the officer's on-scene instructed. Officer Pack, Officer Chipolet, and I performed arm bar techniques and were able to bring [CNP REDACTION]'s arms behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] was subsequently handcuffed (checked for fit and double-locked). [CNP REDACTION] was placed in the back of Squad #69 and seatbelted in. I later determined my body worn camera was de-activated while gaining control of [CNP REDACTION] and I immediately activated it.

On 6/1/19 at approximately 0043 hours I, Ofc. D. Pack #234 and my partner Ofc. J. Roden #124 were dispatched to [CNP REDACTION] for a call of a person shot. We arrived on scene with our emergency lights activated and used our squad car’s air horn to assist in dispersing a very large crowd which was gathered on the west side of the street. As we began our search for any potential gunshot victims, we encountered approximately 300 people gathered on the street, with numerous fights actively in progress. I observed [CNP REDACTION] actively engaged in a physical fight with another unknown subject. [CNP REDACTION] had his arms raised and his fists clenched, and was actively striking the unknown subject. There was also a large group of approximately 10 other people in extremely close proximity who also appeared to be engaged in the physical altercation. In order to prevent further injury to the unknown individual and others, I deployed my Taser directly to [CNP REDACTION]'s torso, targeting the large muscle group in his abdomen. During the cycle of the Taser, [CNP REDACTION] was guided to the ground using soft control techniques and placed in handcuffs (double locked and tension checked). Due to the size of the crowd engaged in the fight, the need for immediate intervention to prevent injuries to other individuals and potential escalation of the fight, I was unable to give adequate verbal commands to [CNP REDACTION] prior to deploying my Taser. It should be noted at the conclusion of the incident I discovered both of my Taser cartridges had been deployed while I was engaged with [CNP REDACTION].

On 06/01/2019 at approximaltey(sic) 0040 hours I responded to a large disturbance at [CNP REDACTION] including a person that may be shot. While clearing the area I approached a group including [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] was yelling at other people in the area and appeared to be attempting to start a fight. As I approached he was being held back near a wall by an unknown female. I ordered the group to disperse at which time [CNP REDACTION] turned toward me and stared me in the face. Unidentified people grabbed a hold of [CNP REDACTION] as he clenched his fists while still staring at me. He then attempted to walk toward me while still having his fists clenched. Unidentified people were still attempting to hold him back. At one point, [CNP REDACTION] moved around one of the subject holding him back and again attempted to engage me. In response to the large group in my vicinity, and fearing that [CNP REDACTION] would break free of the group and batter me, I deployed my department issued chemical agent toward the face of [CNP REDACTION]. In doing so, multiple people were affected and fled the area with [CNP REDACTION]. One subject (Unknown male black) did not flee the area and turned in my direction. He then stepped toward me, causing me to believe that he was going to physically engage me. In response to his actions, I sprayed another short burst of chemical agent toward his facial area. After doing so, the subject fled the area northbound. [CNP REDACTION] was located by fellow officers a short time later and taken into custody.

On the above mentioned date time and location I Officer Sosa was an assist officer for a well-being check. While attempting to interview the subject of the of the(sic) well-being check, [CNP REDACTION] closed the distance to me and was in less than an arm’s length away, clenched his hands into fists, bladed his stance and grimaced as he said “Man, I’m telling you, I have a good left and a good right”. Due to the delayed compliance to previous commands, apparent intoxication and observed aggressive behavior I felt I would be battered if I did not act immediately. I delivered and empty open hand push to the left side of [CNP REDACTION]’s face. Causing him to fall to the floor. Pack and I gave several verbal commands for him to put his hands behind his back but he refused to comply. Officer pack and I used simple joint manipulation to handcuff [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] made unsolicited statements that he was not hurt.

On 07/28/2019 at approximately 0242 hours, I, Officer Herrera *195 was dispatched to [CNP REDACTION] to process the scene for a criminal damage to property report. Upon arrival I spoke with Officer Pack *234 who stated that he was advised by complainant, [EPD REDACTION], that the offenders were still on scene. [EPD REDACTION] advised that the offenders forced the front door to the CTA station and were now on the third rail car to the south bound train. Officer Pack *234 and I walked up to the platform where [EPD REDACTION] pointed out the two offenders. I made contact with [CNP REDACTION] and took him into custody for criminal damage to property. The handcuffs were double locked and checked for fit. I walked Watson out of the rail car and onto the platform. Officer Hicks *251 arrived and searched [CNP REDACTION]. I went back onto the train to retrieve their belongings. When I returned, I observed [CNP REDACTION] attempting to use his cellphone while in handcuffs and Officers Pack *234 and Hicks *251 were trying to take the cellphone out of his hands. [CNP REDACTION] tightened his grip on his cellphone and tensed his arms up. I put their belongings on the ground and attempted to take the cellphone out of [CNP REDACTION]'s hands. Officer Pack *234 was able to successfully take the phone out of [CNP REDACTION]'s hand. Officer Pack *234 and Hicks *251 walked [CNP REDACTION] to Officer Pack’s squad car. [CNP REDACTION] did not complain of wrist pain/injury while on scene at the CTA and did not request medical attention. The incident was captured on my body worn camera and was reviewed prior to writing this report.

In summary: On 11/21/19 at approximately 0105 hrs. I, Officer Hicks #251, was dispatched to a disturbance at [CNP REDACTION] The caller told dispatch her husband was attempting to break down the door to her apartment [CNP REDACTION]. Upon arrival, Officers Pack, Romera, Hindes and I arrived in the fourth floor hallway simultaneously and observed a subject, later identified as [CNP REDACTION] outside the door of [CNP REDACTION] yelling and banging on the door. When Officer Pack instructed [CNP REDACTION] to show his hands, [CNP REDACTION] said, “Let you see my hands?” [CNP REDACTION] continued to aggressively bang on the door with his hands and feet. Pack grabbed [CNP REDACTION] in an attempt to gain compliance, but [CNP REDACTION] resisted. Officer Romero then grabbed [CNP REDACTION] and Pack Romero and [CNP REDACTION] fell to the ground. [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist and refused to be handcuffed. [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist and refused to be handcuffed. [CNP REDACTION] had a puffy winter coat on and it appeared as if he was attempting to put his hands in his pockets. I deployed my Taser to assist Pack, Romero, and Hindes in gaining control of [CNP REDACTION]'s wrists. The Taser prongs struck [CNP REDACTION] in the right arm, and although he seemed to be affected at first, he continued to fight. Due to the thickness of [CNP REDACTION]'s coat, and the fact that his coat kept being pulled due to his resisting, one of the Taser prongs came out and I observed it on the floor. [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist and attempt(sic) to go in his jacket pockets. I deployed another Taser cartridge into [CNP REDACTION]'s back. [CNP REDACTION] was still not compliant so I activated my Taser a third and fourth time, both times appeared ineffective possibly due to the prongs continuously being extracted by the movement of [CNP REDACTION]'s coat against his body. After the final Taser deployment, officers were able to gain control of [CNP REDACTION] and place him in handcuffs. 19-10572 21/11/2019 01/11/2020 D.Pack 234 4th Ward Taser 4th Ward 30 M B left empty Radio dispatch Indoors, lighted None N/A Evanston Hospital, ER Dr. Gowar N/A Erick M.

I broke up the fight and was attempting to disperse the subjects when [CNP REDACTION] attempted to run past me with his fist balled in the air. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION] in an attempt to prevent him from striking an unknown female subject. Due to the close proximity and rapidly evolving nature of the situation I was unable to give adequate verbal commands. [CNP REDACTION] then pulled away from me, balled up his fists and ran directly into me, while swinging his arms. I then grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s arm in an attempt to take him to the ground and place him in handcuffs. [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist and was still actviely resisting.

On 5/27/20 at approximately 20:30 hours I, Det. Velez (151), attempted to take [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] into custody for Obstruction of an investigation, Disobedience to Police, Obstructing the Roadway, and Disorderly Conduct (see field general for further details. [CNP REDACTION] was observed in front of his residence [CNP REDACTION] engaged in a hand-to-hand transaction with a vehicle (IL reg# [EPD REDACTION]) stopped in front of his residence. [CNP REDACTION] observed us pulling our squad car up and immediately retreated into his residence and observed us turn our squad around to head in the direction of the vehicle he left. Det.'s Shanas, Wideman, and myself affected an investigative stop on said vehicle at the [CNP REDACTION]. The investigative stop revealed a suspended driver and felony amounts of narcotics (see field general for futher). At this point, I observed [CNP REDACTION] traveling W/B on Church and partially hanging out the passenger window as he approached the investigation site. [CNP REDACTION] yelled "What the fuck is y'all on?" The vehicle immediately pulled over just West of the investigation and [CNP REDACTION] exited walking E/B in the W/B traffic lane of Church. [CNP REDACTION] produced an object with a light on it and began walking directly towards the investigation. Knowing [CNP REDACTION] had a relationship with the vehicle and observed us diverting our route to follow it, I asked [CNP REDACTION] not to interfere with the traffic stop and to stay where he was. [CNP REDACTION] walked around me and continued E/B approaching the vehicle, not attempting to go to the South side walkway of Church ave. [CNP REDACTION] positioned himself behind Det. Shanas forcing him to turn his attention away from the traffic stop and towards [CNP REDACTION]. I ordered [CNP REDACTION] to put his hands behind his back for disobeying my orders and [CNP REDACTION] continued walking away ignoring my order. As [CNP REDACTION] continued walking away I turned away from him towards Det. Shanas and Wideman. [CNP REDACTION] began coming back towards the investigation again and I was forced to again address his presence. [CNP REDACTION] began to retreat again when back-up units arrived and [CNP REDACTION] began running from them also. [CNP REDACTION] ran E/B on Church continuing to obstruct traffic, and then S/B on Asbury also obstructing traffic. [CNP REDACTION] then resisted away from Ofc. Vasquez, causing both [CNP REDACTION] and Ofc. Vasquez to fall, and then attempted to elude Ofc. Pack and myself. It should be noted, [CNP REDACTION] was not wearing clothing on his upper torso when he fell. [CNP REDACTION] double back away from Ofc. Vasquez towards Ofc. Pack and I. Ofc. Pack attempted to grab [CNP REDACTION] by his left hand and upper body and [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist via pulling away. I attempted to control [CNP REDACTION] by his upper body and later right arm as we performed a "takedown" by guiding [CNP REDACTION] to the ground and ordering his hands behind his back. We gave [CNP REDACTION] several loud clear verbal commands to place his hands behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] stiffened his arms before we ultimately were able to gain control of both hands, handcuffing and double locking for fit. Upon arrival, [CNP REDACTION] was seen by [EPD REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] exhibited [EPD REDACTION], which were photographed via an Evanston Police Evidence Technician. See field general for further details.

On 3/8/16 at approximately 0305 hours I, Officer D. Pack responded to a call of a suspicious person in the rear of [CNP REDACTION]. I subsequently engaged [CNP REDACTION] in the back yard of [CNP REDACTION] as part of an ongoing investigation of said suspicious person call. I encountered [CNP REDACTION], who was concealing himself under the deck area of the above address, who I believed to be a subject who fled from an earlier traffic stop in which a loaded gun was recovered from a stolen vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] was given verbal commands to crawl out from under the deck and [CNP REDACTION] initially followed my instructions. After being physically removed from under the deck by Ofc. Virani, [CNP REDACTION] was ordered to place his hands behind his back which he refused to do. [CNP REDACTION] tensed his arms and thrashed around on the ground kicking his feet in the air. [CNP REDACTION] was advised to stop resisting multiple times, but continued to stiffen up and resist attempts by Ofc. Virani and Ofc. Reza to place him in handcuffs. At this point, believing the subject could be armed, and due to his actively resisting arrest, I placed my Taser against his left buttocks. I informed [CNP REDACTION] if he continued to resist arrest he would be tased. [CNP REDACTION] then slapped the Taser away from his body and attempted to roll over with his arms clenched to his side. I deployed my Taser for one five second burst using a drive-stun technique to the [CNP REDACTION]'s left buttocks. [CNP REDACTION] immediately ceased his attempts to resist arrest and was handcuffed without further incident.

On 4/17/16 at approximately 2152 hours I was called to [CNP REDACTION] by Officer Virani and Servatius who were conducting a traffic stop. Once on scene the driver, later identified as [CNP REDACTION] became extremely irate and aggressive. At one point he forcefully opened his car door and struck assisting Officer N. Jones in the leg. [CNP REDACTION] was immediately ordered under arrest; however he refused to exit his vehicle. I opened the driver's side door and grabbed hold of [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm while assisting officers grabbed hold of his other arm. [CNP REDACTION] was ordered numerous times to exit the vehicle and to stop resisting arrest. He braced himself inside the vehicle and attempted to climb to the passenger side of the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] was successfully removed from the vehicle and an assisted, controlled take down of [CNP REDACTION] was performed in the roadway where he was then handcuffed. 16-9911 17/04/2016 25/01/2021 Miller 26 8th Ward Controlled take down 5th Ward 22 M B Traffic, resisting arrest, battery to police officer Traffic arrest/Assist Dark, Lighted Sgt.

On 10/08/2016 at approximately 0108 hours I (Ofc. Nawotka #243) responded to the area of 1400 Chicago for an in progress battery. Upon arrival at the scene my attention was drawn to Sgt. Wernick #5 and Ofc. Virani #163 who were attempting to take [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] into custody. I began to assist as Sgt. Wernick and Ofc. Virani brought [CNP REDACTION] to the ground. While on the ground, [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist, refusing to turn over onto his stomach. [CNP REDACTION] was using his arms to push away and refused to comply with multiple orders to turn over and place his hands behind his back. Unable to gain compliance, and having difficulty restraining [CNP REDACTION] due to the fact that he was 6'03" and approximately 250 lbs., I administered approximately three knee strikes to the side of [CNP REDACTION]'s torso. With the knee strikes and the efforts of Sgt. Wernick and Ofc. Virani, we were able to get Hamilton to roll over onto his stomach. We continued to have problems gaining control of [CNP REDACTION]'s arms due to the fact that he was lying against bushes. Sgt. Wernick and I pulled Hamilton across the ground in order to gain some space. At this time I felt a sharp pain in my lower back, but continued to assist with placing Hamilton into handcuffs and sitting him up.

On 5/31/16 at approximately 0348 hours I, OFC Niedziela *118 responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a report of a burglary in progress. Prior to my arrival, Detective Geyer advised via radio transmission he was in a foot pursuit with the suspect east bound on Main from Chicago and then soutbound through the east alley of Chicago at Main. I drove my marked patrol vehicle through the alley and observed Detective Geyer and OFC Virani pursuing a m/[EPD REDACTION] subject wearing dark clothing. While driving my vehicle I observed the subject turn east bound through the alley toward Hinman. I immediately exited my patrol vehicle and pursued the subject on foot. I yelled loudly at the subject stating, "Evanston Police! Stop running!" The subject ignored my verbal commands and continued to flee east bound through the alley toward Hinman and then ran north bound on Hinman. I continued to yell verbal commands for the subject to stop running and advised my office as Evanston Police. The subject then fled east bound in the 800 block of Hinman through the middle of the street and then south bound on Hinman. I was able to catch up to the subject and tackled him on the south east side of the street on Hinman. The subject immediately began to attempt to free himself by violently twisting and turning his body and swung his elbows into my face and chest. In fear for my safety, I struck the subject in the face with a close fist approximately 2-3 times. I repeatedly told the subject he was under arrest and to place his arms behind his back. The subject continued to resist my arrest by tensing the muscles in both of his arms and tucking them underneath his body. The subject then attempted to reach toward his waistband. In fear the subject may be attempting to access a weapon from underneath himself I struck the again with a closed fist approximately 2-3 times. Several officers then arrived on scene and assisted by taking hold of the subject's arms, placing them behind his back and I then placed him into handcuffs(s). 16-14567 31/05/2016 11/11/2020 Niedziela 118 3rd Ward Close fist hand strikes 6th Ward 20 M W Burglary, Resisting Arrest Burglary in progress, assisting unit Dark left empty None left empty left empty left empty left empty left empty 10? 0 3 Niedziela; Geyer; Virani No Chasing arrestee

I observed [CNP REDACTION] holding both of his arms under his torso despite out verbal commands from Officer Niedziela to stop resisting.

On 07/18/16 at approximately 0004hrs, I, Officer Virani #163, was on routine patrol driving northbound on Sherman from Greenleaf. I observed a vehicle bearing IL plate [CNP REDACTION] travelling northbound on Sherman, approaching Crain. The rear registration light was inoperable and the vehicle disobeyed a stop sign at Crain and Sherman. I performed a traffic stop on the vehicle at [CNP REDACTION] and made contact with the driver, [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] A LEADS check revealed his driver's license was revoked. After detecting an odor of alcoholic beverage emanating from [CNP REDACTION], I performed a Standardized Field Sobriety Tests on [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] was placed in custody for DUI and placed in the rear of my squad car. I performed an inventory search on [CNP REDACTION]'s vehicle and returned to the rear passenger side of my vehicle where [CNP REDACTION] was seated. I was attempting to inform him that his vehicle would be towed from the scene. I opened the door at which point [CNP REDACTION] immediately kicked the door open and forced his way out of the vehicle in an attempt to escape. Both of [CNP REDACTION]'s feet were on the ground. I used an open hand technique and pushed [CNP REDACTION] on his chest in order to get him back inside of the vehicle. The struggle with [CNP REDACTION] began at 0034hrs and continued until 0039hrs. During this struggle, [CNP REDACTION] repeatedly kicked his legs towards my torso and eventually kicked my right leg just above my knee. Due to [CNP REDACTION] not complying and his constant escalation of resistance, I performed a closed fist hand strike twice with my right hand to the face of [CNP REDACTION] in order to stun him and gain compliance. It should be noted that [CNP REDACTION] claimed he was being choked during the struggle. [CNP REDACTION] had made multiple threats of spitting on me. I used an open hand technique to push on the jawline of [CNP REDACTION] in order to move his head, and subsequently his body, towards the interior of the vehicle. At no point did [CNP REDACTION] lose consciousness. He was able to breathe and yell at all times during the struggle. Eventually, [CNP REDACTION] was secured inside of the squad car and transported to EPD. 16-20489 18/07/2016 29/10/2020 Virani 163 4th Ward Closed fist hand strike Roger’s Park, Chicago 49 M B Agg Battery to PO, Agg DUI, Agg Revoked DL, Resisting PO On view traffic stop Nighttime, street lighting DNA left empty Redacted left empty Lashawn Stewart Physical altercation with officers while resisting arrest Redacted 26 0 1 Virani No car plate # not redacted Traffic Stop - revoked DL
On 10/08/2016 at approximately 0108 hours, I, Officer Virani #163, responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a call of a battery. Upon arrival, several subjects were on scene. I along with Sergeant Wernick #5 made initial contact with [CNP REDACTION]. Due to [CNP REDACTION]'s close proximity to the victim, [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] we gave multiple loud verbal commands for [CNP REDACTION] to move back away from the immediate area. [CNP REDACTION] ignored our repeated commands and was warned that he would be arrested. [CNP REDACTION] continued to ignore commands and we therefore advised him that he was being arrested for disobedience to police on the public way. [CNP REDACTION] was given loud verbal commands to place his hands behind his back but refused. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s left wrist and attempted to pull his hand behind his back in order to place him in handcuffs. I attempted this twice, both times with [CNP REDACTION] aggressively pulling his arms to the front of his body in order to defeat the arrest. To gain control of [CNP REDACTION], as I was standing behind him I placed my right arm over [CNP REDACTION]'s right shoulder and across the top of his chest. I pulled back and brought [CNP REDACTION] to the ground. While on the ground, [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist and would not roll over onto his stomach. We were able to turn [CNP REDACTION] over and place his hands behind his back and handcuff him. Officer Nawotka #243 was assisting in placing [CNP REDACTION] under arrest and [EPD REDACTION] during the process.

On 02/05/2017 at approximately 0135 hours, I, Officer Virani #163 was driving westbound on Grove, approaching Ridge. A cab driving northbound on Ridge at Grove flagged me down for a dispute on the destination the passengers were going to. Due to the unexpectedness of the incident, I exited my squad car without activating my in-car audio and video system. I made contact with the rear driver's side passenger [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION], who stated that he had to urinate. I explained to him several times that he needed to stay in the car after he requested to step out of the vehicle and urinate in public. [CNP REDACTION] stated that he urinated himself inside of the cab. I turned my flashlight on and shined it inside of the vehicle. As I was talking to [CNP REDACTION], he became irritated that my flashlight was illuminating the interior of the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] gritted his teeth, causing his jaw to visibly clench. [CNP REDACTION] grabbed my left forearm, which was resting on the lower portion of the window frame of the rear driver's side door. I told [CNP REDACTION] to let go of my arm. He did not and continued to hold onto it as I pulled my arm back. [CNP REDACTION] continued to hold my forearm and pulled it back in toward the vehicle. I again pulled my arm back but was unable to free my arm. Due to [CNP REDACTION]'s actions and him refusing my verbal commands, I performed a closed fist hand strike with my right hand to the nose of [CNP REDACTION] in order to stun him and release my arm from his grip. This method proved successful. I then opened the rear driver's side door and ordered [CNP REDACTION] out of the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] stayed within the vehicle and ignored my verbal commands to exit the vehicle. I then pulled on the back of [CNP REDACTION]'s shirt collar and again gave a verbal command to exit the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] still ignored my commands. Due to this, I pulled [CNP REDACTION] out of the vehicle while holding his collar and performed a forward take down from his seated position in the vehicle to the ground outside of the vehicle. I was then able to place [CNP REDACTION] into handcuffs, which were tension checked and locked. 17-1151 05/02/2017 02/11/2020 Virani 163 4th Ward Hand strike/Controlled takedown Portage Park, Chicago 44 M W Battery On-view Nighttime, street lighting N/A left empty Redacted left empty Agustin Chaparro During forward takedown Redacted 26 0 1 Virani No Officer flagged down for directions - Passenger not allowed to get out to urinate, grabbed officer's arm and would not let go when officer shined light in face
On 06/10/2017 at approximately 0017 hours, I, Officer Virani #163, responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a check well-being call in which a male subject was possibly overdosing. Upon arrival, I encountered two females and one male in front of location that were related to the call. I advised all three that I would need their information for the report. One of the females, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], [EPD REDACTION], began to walk away and ignored verbal commands to stay on scene. [CNP REDACTION] had not given his name at this point. I asked if he was [CNP REDACTION] since he looked familiar to me, to which he stated that he was. I advised him that I recognized him from an incident at [CNP REDACTION] from last year in which [CNP REDACTION] was arrested by myself and other officers. This caused [CNP REDACTION] to become more upset knowing that I was involved with his arrest in that incident. [CNP REDACTION] stated that he would beat my ass if I weren't wearing my uniform and that he would "catch me outside" of work. As [CNP REDACTION] was threatening me verbally, he spat on the ground near my feet. [CNP REDACTION] took a bladed stance and clenched his fists, at one point punching his fist into his hand, and stated that he was going to beat my ass. [CNP REDACTION] was also within arms reach of me, approximately a foot away. Due to [CNP REDACTION]'s physical stance with him being taller than me with a muscular build, as well as his bladed stance and clenched fists. I believed I was in immediate danger of receiving a battery from [CNP REDACTION]. Due to being in fear of receiving a battery, I performed one open hand strike using my right hand to the left side of [CNP REDACTION]'s face so as to stun him. This proved effective, at which point both myself and Officer Jones #214, were able to place [CNP REDACTION] in handcuffs without further incident. It should be noted that during this incident, Officer Jones was continually giving orders to [CNP REDACTION] to calm down, which [CNP REDACTION] ignored. The handcuffs were tension checked and locked. [CNP REDACTION] was transported to the Evanston Police Department for further processing. 17-5496 10/06/2017 18/12/2020 Virani 163 3rd Ward Open hand palm strike 6th Ward 21 M W Aggravated Assault to a Police Officer Radio assignment Nighttime, street lighting DNA DNA Redacted DNa Parker Cavaliers, Ofc.

On 09/28/2017 at approximately 0015 hrs. Officer Harvey #133 and I, Officer Virani #163, responded to the area of [CNP REDACTION] for a man with a gun call. TAC officers were in a foot chase with two suspects that were armed and dangerous in the area and had requested additional assistance. While standing in the [CNP REDACTION], I heard two loud gunshots come from the southeast of our location. The gunshots sounded extremely close by an estimated 30 yards. An unknown male in an apartment window on the east side of Ashland yelled out to myself and Officer Harvey, "You better go get them! I'm recording!" He stated several times that we better go get them. Approximately 2 seconds after him stating this, I looked to the southeast and observed two male blacks walking away from us. This was the same area that I heard the gunshots coming from. The males were later identified as [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] and [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION]. Both males matched the descriptions put out by dispatch. Both subjects began walking southbound away from us into Willye White Park. Myself and Officer Harvey approached tactically with our guns drawn and gave multiple loud, verbal commands for both subjects to stop and get on the ground. Both subjects continued walking away from us. I noticed [CNP REDACTION] look over his left shoulder at me and continue to ignore our verbal commands despite both officers having our guns drawn. Officer Harvey removed his taser from its holster and placed it on the back of [CNP REDACTION] and directed him to the ground. At this time, [CNP REDACTION] had complied and gotten on the ground. [CNP REDACTION] turned fully toward Officer Harvey and continued to refuse verbal commands. Based on the totality of the circumstances on hearing gunshots in close proximity to our location, seeing both subjects leaving the area, the ignoring of multiple verbal commands, and that [CNP REDACTION] matched the description of one of the subjects with a gun, I feared he was turning toward us in an attempt to either batter us or use a weapon against us. Due to this, I unholstered my taser and deployed it, striking [CNP REDACTION] in his lower torso. [CNP REDACTION] went to the ground and eventually turned over onto his stomach. Assisting officers arrived on scene and placed him in handcuffs. 17-9707 28/09/2017 29/10/2020 Virani 163 Roger's Park Taser Deployment Roger’s Park, Chicago 37 M B Parole Violation Warrant Radio assignment Nighttime, street lighting DNA DNA Redacted DNA Rafael A.

On 04/30/2019 at 1720hrs, I, Officer Virani #163, responded to a retail theft report at Whole Foods located at 1640 Chicago Ave. Officer Golubski #240 requested an assist unit due to a female offender, now identified as [CNP REDACTION], who was being uncooperative. Once on scene, [CNP REDACTION] was advised that she was under arrest. I took hold of [CNP REDACTION]'s left hand and arm. I immediately felt [CNP REDACTION] tense her left arm and attempt to pull it back in front of her torso. I was unable to get [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm behind her back to secure it with handcuffs. Due to [CNP REDACTION] resisting, I pushed [CNP REDACTION] onto her back while she was still situated in front of the chair. The chair tipped over backwards and the back of [CNP REDACTION]'s head struck a table while being escorted to the ground. Once on the ground, [CNP REDACTION] was on her back. [CNP REDACTION] then kicked me with her foot (unknown leg). [CNP REDACTION]'s foot struck the front of my lower left leg. Officer Golubski and I were able to get [CNP REDACTION] onto her stomach and a handcuff secured on her left wrist. [CNP REDACTION]'s right arm was under [CNP REDACTION]'s torso. [CNP REDACTION] refused to remove her right arm and hand from underneath her torso. I was able to pull [CNP REDACTION]'s right arm from under her torso. [CNP REDACTION] was still holding her cell phone. It was difficult to secure the right handcuff to [CNP REDACTION]'s right wrist with the cellphone in her hand. I used joint manipulation (pain compliance) to [CNP REDACTION]'s left thumb, which caused her to release hold of her cell phone. [CNP REDACTION]'s left hand was then secured. I reviewed my body worn camera prior to authoring this report. 19-3415 30/04/2019 07/01/2021 Virani 163 1st Ward Takedown, Joint Manipulation 1st Ward 24 F W Retail Theft, Resisting Arrest, Battery Radio Assignment Interior lighting DNA DNA DNA DNA DNA DNA DNA 27 0 2 Virani; Golubski Yes Assist on Reported Retail Theft - UoF occurred due to noncompliant arrestee

On 3/8/16 at approximately 0305 hours I, Officer D. Pack responded to a call of a suspicious person in the rear of [CNP REDACTION]. I subsequently engaged [CNP REDACTION] in the back yard of [CNP REDACTION] as part of an ongoing investigation of said suspicious person call. I encountered [CNP REDACTION], who was concealing himself under the deck area of the above address, who I believed to be a subject who fled from an earlier traffic stop in which a loaded gun was recovered from a stolen vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] was given verbal commands to crawl out from under the deck and [CNP REDACTION] initially followed my instructions. After being physically removed from under the deck by Ofc. Virani, [CNP REDACTION] was ordered to place his hands behind his back which he refused to do. [CNP REDACTION] tensed his arms and thrashed around on the ground kicking his feet in the air. [CNP REDACTION] was advised to stop resisting multiple times, but continued to stiffen up and resist attempts by Ofc. Virani and Ofc. Reza to place him in handcuffs. At this point, believing the subject could be armed, and due to his actively resisting arrest, I placed my Taser against his left buttocks. I informed [CNP REDACTION] if he continued to resist arrest he would be tased. [CNP REDACTION] then slapped the Taser away from his body and attempted to roll over with his arms clenched to his side. I deployed my Taser for one five second burst using a drive-stun technique to the [CNP REDACTION]'s left buttocks. [CNP REDACTION] immediately ceased his attempts to resist arrest and was handcuffed without further incident.

On 4/17/16 at approximately 2152 hours I was called to [CNP REDACTION] by Officer Virani and Servatius who were conducting a traffic stop. Once on scene the driver, later identified as [CNP REDACTION] became extremely irate and aggressive. At one point he forcefully opened his car door and struck assisting Officer N. Jones in the leg. [CNP REDACTION] was immediately ordered under arrest; however he refused to exit his vehicle. I opened the driver's side door and grabbed hold of [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm while assisting officers grabbed hold of his other arm. [CNP REDACTION] was ordered numerous times to exit the vehicle and to stop resisting arrest. He braced himself inside the vehicle and attempted to climb to the passenger side of the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] was successfully removed from the vehicle and an assisted, controlled take down of [CNP REDACTION] was performed in the roadway where he was then handcuffed. 16-9911 17/04/2016 25/01/2021 Miller 26 8th Ward Controlled take down 5th Ward 22 M B Traffic, resisting arrest, battery to police officer Traffic arrest/Assist Dark, Lighted Sgt.

On 10/08/2016 at approximately 0108 hours I (Ofc. Nawotka #243) responded to the area of 1400 Chicago for an in progress battery. Upon arrival at the scene my attention was drawn to Sgt. Wernick #5 and Ofc. Virani #163 who were attempting to take [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] into custody. I began to assist as Sgt. Wernick and Ofc. Virani brought [CNP REDACTION] to the ground. While on the ground, [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist, refusing to turn over onto his stomach. [CNP REDACTION] was using his arms to push away and refused to comply with multiple orders to turn over and place his hands behind his back. Unable to gain compliance, and having difficulty restraining [CNP REDACTION] due to the fact that he was 6'03" and approximately 250 lbs., I administered approximately three knee strikes to the side of [CNP REDACTION]'s torso. With the knee strikes and the efforts of Sgt. Wernick and Ofc. Virani, we were able to get Hamilton to roll over onto his stomach. We continued to have problems gaining control of [CNP REDACTION]'s arms due to the fact that he was lying against bushes. Sgt. Wernick and I pulled Hamilton across the ground in order to gain some space. At this time I felt a sharp pain in my lower back, but continued to assist with placing Hamilton into handcuffs and sitting him up. See field general and supplements for further details. 16-29436 24/10/2016 01/11/2020 Nawotka 243 3rd Ward Knee Strikes 2nd Ward 54 M B Battery, resisting, disobedience to police Assignment Night with street lighting Ofc.

On 5/31/16 at approximately 0348 hours I, OFC Niedziela *118 responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a report of a burglary in progress. Prior to my arrival, Detective Geyer advised via radio transmission he was in a foot pursuit with the suspect east bound on Main from Chicago and then soutbound through the east alley of Chicago at Main. I drove my marked patrol vehicle through the alley and observed Detective Geyer and OFC Virani pursuing a m/[EPD REDACTION] subject wearing dark clothing. While driving my vehicle I observed the subject turn east bound through the alley toward Hinman. I immediately exited my patrol vehicle and pursued the subject on foot. I yelled loudly at the subject stating, "Evanston Police! Stop running!" The subject ignored my verbal commands and continued to flee east bound through the alley toward Hinman and then ran north bound on Hinman. I continued to yell verbal commands for the subject to stop running and advised my office as Evanston Police. The subject then fled east bound in the 800 block of Hinman through the middle of the street and then south bound on Hinman. I was able to catch up to the subject and tackled him on the south east side of the street on Hinman. The subject immediately began to attempt to free himself by violently twisting and turning his body and swung his elbows into my face and chest. In fear for my safety, I struck the subject in the face with a close fist approximately 2-3 times. I repeatedly told the subject he was under arrest and to place his arms behind his back. The subject continued to resist my arrest by tensing the muscles in both of his arms and tucking them underneath his body. The subject then attempted to reach toward his waistband. In fear the subject may be attempting to access a weapon from underneath himself I struck the again with a closed fist approximately 2-3 times. Several officers then arrived on scene and assisted by taking hold of the subject's arms, placing them behind his back and I then placed him into handcuffs(s). 16-14567 31/05/2016 11/11/2020 Niedziela 118 3rd Ward Close fist hand strikes 6th Ward 20 M W Burglary, Resisting Arrest Burglary in progress, assisting unit Dark left empty None left empty left empty left empty left empty left empty 10? 0 3 Niedziela; Geyer; Virani No Chasing arrestee

On 05/31/16 at approximately 0348hrs, I. Officer Virani #163, responded to a burglary in progress call at [CNP REDACTION]. The caller stated that a male in dark clothing had burglarized the business at [CNP REDACTION]. As I pulled up, dispatch stated that the subject was walking on [CNP REDACTION]. Upon observing the suspect, later identified as [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION], I exited my marked squad car. [CNP REDACTION] observed me and Det. Geyer and began running southbound on [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] continued running eastbound on [CNP REDACTION] and then southbound through the east alley of the 800 block of [CNP REDACTION]. Officer Niedziela #118 followed our radio traffic and drove his marked squad car down the east alley of [CNP REDACTION] in an attempt to intercept [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] then started running eastbound down a gangway towards the 800 block of [CNP REDACTION]. Officer Niedziela was in front of myself and Det. Geyer. I observed [CNP REDACTION] run northbound on [CNP REDACTION] and then immediately southbound on [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] was taken down by Officer Niedziela along the east curb in the 800 block of [CNP REDACTION]. I observed [CNP REDACTION] holding both of his arms under his torso despite out verbal commands from Officer Niedziela to stop resisting. Due to [CNP REDACTION] ignoring multiple, loud verbal commands to stop resisting and to place his hands behind his back, I performed a closed fist hand strike to the right cheek area of [CNP REDACTION]'s face using my right hand. At this point, [CNP REDACTION]'s arms were placed behind his back and he was handcuffed by Officer Niedziela. See Ofc. Niedziela report for further. 16-14567 31/05/2016 11/11/2020 Virani 163 3rd Ward Closed fist hand strike 6th Ward 20 M W Burglary, Resisting Arrest Radio assignment Nighttime, street lighting Ofc.

On 07/18/16 at approximately 0004hrs, I, Officer Virani #163, was on routine patrol driving northbound on Sherman from Greenleaf. I observed a vehicle bearing IL plate [CNP REDACTION] travelling northbound on Sherman, approaching Crain. The rear registration light was inoperable and the vehicle disobeyed a stop sign at Crain and Sherman. I performed a traffic stop on the vehicle at [CNP REDACTION] and made contact with the driver, [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] A LEADS check revealed his driver's license was revoked. After detecting an odor of alcoholic beverage emanating from [CNP REDACTION], I performed a Standardized Field Sobriety Tests on [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] was placed in custody for DUI and placed in the rear of my squad car. I performed an inventory search on [CNP REDACTION]'s vehicle and returned to the rear passenger side of my vehicle where [CNP REDACTION] was seated. I was attempting to inform him that his vehicle would be towed from the scene. I opened the door at which point [CNP REDACTION] immediately kicked the door open and forced his way out of the vehicle in an attempt to escape. Both of [CNP REDACTION]'s feet were on the ground. I used an open hand technique and pushed [CNP REDACTION] on his chest in order to get him back inside of the vehicle. The struggle with [CNP REDACTION] began at 0034hrs and continued until 0039hrs. During this struggle, [CNP REDACTION] repeatedly kicked his legs towards my torso and eventually kicked my right leg just above my knee. Due to [CNP REDACTION] not complying and his constant escalation of resistance, I performed a closed fist hand strike twice with my right hand to the face of [CNP REDACTION] in order to stun him and gain compliance. It should be noted that [CNP REDACTION] claimed he was being choked during the struggle. [CNP REDACTION] had made multiple threats of spitting on me. I used an open hand technique to push on the jawline of [CNP REDACTION] in order to move his head, and subsequently his body, towards the interior of the vehicle. At no point did [CNP REDACTION] lose consciousness. He was able to breathe and yell at all times during the struggle. Eventually, [CNP REDACTION] was secured inside of the squad car and transported to EPD. 16-20489 18/07/2016 29/10/2020 Virani 163 4th Ward Closed fist hand strike Roger’s Park, Chicago 49 M B Agg Battery to PO, Agg DUI, Agg Revoked DL, Resisting PO On view traffic stop Nighttime, street lighting DNA left empty Redacted left empty Lashawn Stewart Physical altercation with officers while resisting arrest Redacted 26 0 1 Virani No car plate # not redacted Traffic Stop - revoked DL
On 10/08/2016 at approximately 0108 hours, I, Officer Virani #163, responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a call of a battery. Upon arrival, several subjects were on scene. I along with Sergeant Wernick #5 made initial contact with [CNP REDACTION]. Due to [CNP REDACTION]'s close proximity to the victim, [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] we gave multiple loud verbal commands for [CNP REDACTION] to move back away from the immediate area. [CNP REDACTION] ignored our repeated commands and was warned that he would be arrested. [CNP REDACTION] continued to ignore commands and we therefore advised him that he was being arrested for disobedience to police on the public way. [CNP REDACTION] was given loud verbal commands to place his hands behind his back but refused. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s left wrist and attempted to pull his hand behind his back in order to place him in handcuffs. I attempted this twice, both times with [CNP REDACTION] aggressively pulling his arms to the front of his body in order to defeat the arrest. To gain control of [CNP REDACTION], as I was standing behind him I placed my right arm over [CNP REDACTION]'s right shoulder and across the top of his chest. I pulled back and brought [CNP REDACTION] to the ground. While on the ground, [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist and would not roll over onto his stomach. We were able to turn [CNP REDACTION] over and place his hands behind his back and handcuff him. Officer Nawotka #243 was assisting in placing [CNP REDACTION] under arrest and [EPD REDACTION] during the process.

On 02/05/2017 at approximately 0135 hours, I, Officer Virani #163 was driving westbound on Grove, approaching Ridge. A cab driving northbound on Ridge at Grove flagged me down for a dispute on the destination the passengers were going to. Due to the unexpectedness of the incident, I exited my squad car without activating my in-car audio and video system. I made contact with the rear driver's side passenger [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION], who stated that he had to urinate. I explained to him several times that he needed to stay in the car after he requested to step out of the vehicle and urinate in public. [CNP REDACTION] stated that he urinated himself inside of the cab. I turned my flashlight on and shined it inside of the vehicle. As I was talking to [CNP REDACTION], he became irritated that my flashlight was illuminating the interior of the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] gritted his teeth, causing his jaw to visibly clench. [CNP REDACTION] grabbed my left forearm, which was resting on the lower portion of the window frame of the rear driver's side door. I told [CNP REDACTION] to let go of my arm. He did not and continued to hold onto it as I pulled my arm back. [CNP REDACTION] continued to hold my forearm and pulled it back in toward the vehicle. I again pulled my arm back but was unable to free my arm. Due to [CNP REDACTION]'s actions and him refusing my verbal commands, I performed a closed fist hand strike with my right hand to the nose of [CNP REDACTION] in order to stun him and release my arm from his grip. This method proved successful. I then opened the rear driver's side door and ordered [CNP REDACTION] out of the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] stayed within the vehicle and ignored my verbal commands to exit the vehicle. I then pulled on the back of [CNP REDACTION]'s shirt collar and again gave a verbal command to exit the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] still ignored my commands. Due to this, I pulled [CNP REDACTION] out of the vehicle while holding his collar and performed a forward take down from his seated position in the vehicle to the ground outside of the vehicle. I was then able to place [CNP REDACTION] into handcuffs, which were tension checked and locked. 17-1151 05/02/2017 02/11/2020 Virani 163 4th Ward Hand strike/Controlled takedown Portage Park, Chicago 44 M W Battery On-view Nighttime, street lighting N/A left empty Redacted left empty Agustin Chaparro During forward takedown Redacted 26 0 1 Virani No Officer flagged down for directions - Passenger not allowed to get out to urinate, grabbed officer's arm and would not let go when officer shined light in face
On 06/10/2017 at approximately 0017 hours, I, Officer Virani #163, responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a check well-being call in which a male subject was possibly overdosing. Upon arrival, I encountered two females and one male in front of location that were related to the call. I advised all three that I would need their information for the report. One of the females, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], [EPD REDACTION], began to walk away and ignored verbal commands to stay on scene. [CNP REDACTION] had not given his name at this point. I asked if he was [CNP REDACTION] since he looked familiar to me, to which he stated that he was. I advised him that I recognized him from an incident at [CNP REDACTION] from last year in which [CNP REDACTION] was arrested by myself and other officers. This caused [CNP REDACTION] to become more upset knowing that I was involved with his arrest in that incident. [CNP REDACTION] stated that he would beat my ass if I weren't wearing my uniform and that he would "catch me outside" of work. As [CNP REDACTION] was threatening me verbally, he spat on the ground near my feet. [CNP REDACTION] took a bladed stance and clenched his fists, at one point punching his fist into his hand, and stated that he was going to beat my ass. [CNP REDACTION] was also within arms reach of me, approximately a foot away. Due to [CNP REDACTION]'s physical stance with him being taller than me with a muscular build, as well as his bladed stance and clenched fists. I believed I was in immediate danger of receiving a battery from [CNP REDACTION]. Due to being in fear of receiving a battery, I performed one open hand strike using my right hand to the left side of [CNP REDACTION]'s face so as to stun him. This proved effective, at which point both myself and Officer Jones #214, were able to place [CNP REDACTION] in handcuffs without further incident. It should be noted that during this incident, Officer Jones was continually giving orders to [CNP REDACTION] to calm down, which [CNP REDACTION] ignored. The handcuffs were tension checked and locked. [CNP REDACTION] was transported to the Evanston Police Department for further processing. 17-5496 10/06/2017 18/12/2020 Virani 163 3rd Ward Open hand palm strike 6th Ward 21 M W Aggravated Assault to a Police Officer Radio assignment Nighttime, street lighting DNA DNA Redacted DNa Parker Cavaliers, Ofc.

On 09/28/2017 at approximately 0015 hrs. Officer Harvey #133 and I, Officer Virani #163, responded to the area of [CNP REDACTION] for a man with a gun call. TAC officers were in a foot chase with two suspects that were armed and dangerous in the area and had requested additional assistance. While standing in the [CNP REDACTION], I heard two loud gunshots come from the southeast of our location. The gunshots sounded extremely close by an estimated 30 yards. An unknown male in an apartment window on the east side of Ashland yelled out to myself and Officer Harvey, "You better go get them! I'm recording!" He stated several times that we better go get them. Approximately 2 seconds after him stating this, I looked to the southeast and observed two male blacks walking away from us. This was the same area that I heard the gunshots coming from. The males were later identified as [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] and [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION]. Both males matched the descriptions put out by dispatch. Both subjects began walking southbound away from us into Willye White Park. Myself and Officer Harvey approached tactically with our guns drawn and gave multiple loud, verbal commands for both subjects to stop and get on the ground. Both subjects continued walking away from us. I noticed [CNP REDACTION] look over his left shoulder at me and continue to ignore our verbal commands despite both officers having our guns drawn. Officer Harvey removed his taser from its holster and placed it on the back of [CNP REDACTION] and directed him to the ground. At this time, [CNP REDACTION] had complied and gotten on the ground. [CNP REDACTION] turned fully toward Officer Harvey and continued to refuse verbal commands. Based on the totality of the circumstances on hearing gunshots in close proximity to our location, seeing both subjects leaving the area, the ignoring of multiple verbal commands, and that [CNP REDACTION] matched the description of one of the subjects with a gun, I feared he was turning toward us in an attempt to either batter us or use a weapon against us. Due to this, I unholstered my taser and deployed it, striking [CNP REDACTION] in his lower torso. [CNP REDACTION] went to the ground and eventually turned over onto his stomach. Assisting officers arrived on scene and placed him in handcuffs. 17-9707 28/09/2017 29/10/2020 Virani 163 Roger's Park Taser Deployment Roger’s Park, Chicago 37 M B Parole Violation Warrant Radio assignment Nighttime, street lighting DNA DNA Redacted DNA Rafael A.

On 04/30/2019 at 1720hrs, I, Officer Virani #163, responded to a retail theft report at Whole Foods located at 1640 Chicago Ave. Officer Golubski #240 requested an assist unit due to a female offender, now identified as [CNP REDACTION], who was being uncooperative. Once on scene, [CNP REDACTION] was advised that she was under arrest. I took hold of [CNP REDACTION]'s left hand and arm. I immediately felt [CNP REDACTION] tense her left arm and attempt to pull it back in front of her torso. I was unable to get [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm behind her back to secure it with handcuffs. Due to [CNP REDACTION] resisting, I pushed [CNP REDACTION] onto her back while she was still situated in front of the chair. The chair tipped over backwards and the back of [CNP REDACTION]'s head struck a table while being escorted to the ground. Once on the ground, [CNP REDACTION] was on her back. [CNP REDACTION] then kicked me with her foot (unknown leg). [CNP REDACTION]'s foot struck the front of my lower left leg. Officer Golubski and I were able to get [CNP REDACTION] onto her stomach and a handcuff secured on her left wrist. [CNP REDACTION]'s right arm was under [CNP REDACTION]'s torso. [CNP REDACTION] refused to remove her right arm and hand from underneath her torso. I was able to pull [CNP REDACTION]'s right arm from under her torso. [CNP REDACTION] was still holding her cell phone. It was difficult to secure the right handcuff to [CNP REDACTION]'s right wrist with the cellphone in her hand. I used joint manipulation (pain compliance) to [CNP REDACTION]'s left thumb, which caused her to release hold of her cell phone. [CNP REDACTION]'s left hand was then secured. I reviewed my body worn camera prior to authoring this report. 19-3415 30/04/2019 07/01/2021 Virani 163 1st Ward Takedown, Joint Manipulation 1st Ward 24 F W Retail Theft, Resisting Arrest, Battery Radio Assignment Interior lighting DNA DNA DNA DNA DNA DNA DNA 27 0 2 Virani; Golubski Yes Assist on Reported Retail Theft - UoF occurred due to noncompliant arrestee

On 06/25/2019 at approximately 16:33 hours, I, Officer Antonio #224, was dispatched to Church St/East Prairie Ave to assist Officer Neal #128 on a traffic stop. Upon arrival at the scene, I observed Officer Neal #128 and Officer Appelt #241 standing by with [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] was the owner and driver of a blue Chrysler 200 (IL BE30719). While on the scene, a strong odor of cannabis was detected coming out of [CNP REDACTION]'s car. While Officer Neal was conducting his investigation, I, along with Sergeant Miller #26, Sergeant Wernick #5 and Officer Appelt, stood by with [CNP REDACTION]. During out standby with [CNP REDACTION], he threw his beverage at Sergeant Miller that he was holding in his right hand and immediately ran east on Church St. I, along with other assisting officers immediately ran after [CNP REDACTION]. I gave several loud verbal commands to [CNP REDACTION] to stop as he fled. [CNP REDACTION] refused and continued running east through the parking lot of 3407 Church St. White eventually ran toward a fence at the southeast side of the establishment parking lot and was cornered. While at the fence, I observed [CNP REDACTION] throw something later determined to be a clear bag of suspected cannabis over the fence. [CNP REDACTION] then turned and was facing me. I was not sure if [CNP REDACTION] had any weapons at this time. I immediately told [CNP REDACTION] to get down on the ground. [CNP REDACTION] was reluctant and did not immediately comply. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s right hand, and along with the assistance of detective Rosenbaum #161 and Sgt Wernick, we took [CNP REDACTION] to the ground. [CNP REDACTION] was taken down with an empty hand takedown, in that I took hold of his right and hand guided him to the ground. It should be noted that my BWC (Body camera) was viewed before writing this report. I have nothing further at this time. 19-5406 06/25/19 07/01/2021 Antonio 224 Skokie Open Empty Hand Take Down Skokie 22 M B Possession of Cannabis, PCS (Possession of a Controlled Substance), Delivery of Cannabis by Ofc.

On 8/7/16 at 0325 hrs. Ofc. Robbins and I, Ofc. Conley, responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a disturbance investigation. A refused citizen advised that there was a group of people out front and they were fighting. I attempted to interview [CNP REDACTION] while in front of the above location and [CNP REDACTION] was extremely irate and agitated. I advised [CNP REDACTION] to calm down and advised him that I needed to check his person for weapons. [CNP REDACTION] then began to yell obscenities out loud and refused to stop yelling. Once Ofc. Rosenbaum arrived on scene, I attempted to pat [CNP REDACTION] down again and grabbed his pants to gain control of him. Once I grabbed [CNP REDACTION], he advised that I needed to stop pulling on him and started clenching and unclenching his fist. [CNP REDACTION] then raised his right fist above his head and slammed it into vehicle #48, causing a dent to the front left side of it. At that time, I attempted to take [CNP REDACTION] into custody and grabbed his left arm. [CNP REDACTION] and tensed up and pulled away from me. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s body around the chest area, and performed a control takedown. [CNP REDACTION] was then rolled onto his stomach and had his right side of his face on the ground. [CNP REDACTION] was ordered to place his hands behind his back, but refused to do so and scratched his face during the struggle before being taken into custody. Nothing further at this time. 16-22781 8/7/16 10/11/2020 Conley 214 4th Ward Takedown 8th Ward 17 M Redacted Criminal Damage to Government Supported Property On-View Dark, lighted N/A N/A Redacted N/A Anthony MP Strachan During a controlled takedown while attempting to take Strachen into custody Redacted 3 0 3 Conley; Robbins; Rosenbaum No Report of disturbance (fight) - unclear if person Officer used force on was part of the disturbance
On 2/26/18 at approximately 1816 hours, I, Detective Holliman *150 and partner Detective Rosenbaum *161, curbed a gray colored KIA bearing Illinois license plate [EPD REDACTION] at [CNP REDACTION] for a traffic violation. Upon making contact with the driver, identified as [CNP REDACTION], who I knew to have an active warrant, he was asked to exit the vehicle. Upon [CNP REDACTION] exiting the vehicle, he was asked to place his hands behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] did not comply. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm to gain control of it and to place him in handcuffs. [CNP REDACTION] immediately locked his arms and refused to place his hands behind his back. As I attempted to place [CNP REDACTION]'s hands behind his back, I gave him a verbal command to not fight. I was then able to place one handcuff on [CNP REDACTION]'s left wrist, where he then began to actively resist by flailing his arms, spinning his body and snatching his right hand away from Detective Rosenbaum. While [CNP REDACTION] was actively resisting, I continued to give him loud verbal commands to stop resisting and to place his hands behind his back. While [CNP REDACTION] was attempting to defeat the arrest I attempted an arm bar take down, while still maintaining control of the handcuff, which was un-successful. [CNP REDACTION] then momentarily stopped actively resisting, but still refusing to place his hands behind his back he was instructed to go down to the ground, he did not comply. [CNP REDACTION] then began to actively resist again by attempting to turn his body, flail his arms and snatching away from Detective Rosenbaum and I. I continued to give [CNP REDACTION] loud verbal commands to stop resisting and I advised him if he did not comply he would be tasered. [CNP REDACTION] continued to actively resist until he was tasered by Detective Rosenbaum. Upon completion of the electrical cycle, [CNP REDACTION] voluntarily placed his hands behind his back, where I was able to place the second handcuff on [CNP REDACTION]'s right wrist.

In summary, but not verbatim, on 06-13-16 at approximately 0039 hours, I, Ofc Kane #209 and my partner Ofc Rosenbaum #161 were dispatched to [CNP REDACTION] for a domestic disturbance involving an in-progress criminal damage to vehicle. Upon arrival, my partner and I observed the suspect, later identified as [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] striking the front passenger side window of a black in color Ford Explorer with closed fists (vehicle bearing IL registration: [EPD REDACTION]. My partner and I immediately exited our vehicle and gave loud and clear verbal commands to [CNP REDACTION] to stop hitting the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] turned towards us, raised both of her middle fingers, yelled "fuck you" and began to walk away. My partner and I continued to give loud and clear verbal commands for her to stop walking away. I then observed a subject on the porch of [CNP REDACTION], later identified as her brother, [CNP REDACTION], point at [CNP REDACTION], and state "please stop her." [CNP REDACTION] subsequently refused to listen to all of our commands, even after I told her she was going to be detained for a criminal damage to vehicle investigation. [CNP REDACTION] kept walking away, at which point I grabbed her right arm, in which she immediately swung both arms aggressively away from me, resisting my arrest. I then conducted a double-leg take down on [CNP REDACTION] , bringing her to the ground (grass), subsequently giving my partner and me a better position for an arrest technique. [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist, by stiffening her arms and aggressively rolling her body side to side. I then conducted an empty hand control tactic with joint manipulation to place her arms in a position, where I could safely and securely handcuff [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] did not appear to have any visible injuries and refused all medical attention. Jessica was transported by my partner and I to the Evanston Police Department for processing. 16-16215 06/13/16 13/11/2020 Kane 209 5th Ward Take down 5th Ward 26 F B Resisting a Police Officer - 720 ALCS 5/31-1(a) - Class A Misd. -- 2 counts Domestic Disturbance & Criminal Damage -- Dispatched Service Call Dark with streets lights None N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A 10 0 2 Kane; Rosenbaum No brother's name is not redacted Radio response to Criminal Damage to property (Sister striking brother's car with fist)
I, Officer Neal was attempting to stop a known convicted felon, [CNP REDACTION], for an Evanston Felony Warrant and a Cook County probation violation warrant. I observed [CNP REDACTION] as the driver of a vehicle that was stopped at [CNP REDACTION] in Skokie. I approached from the passenger side and shined my flashlight into the vehicle and the occupants exited. I made eye contact with [CNP REDACTION] as he exited the vehicle. I gave verbal commands to [CNP REDACTION] to stop. [CNP REDACTION] began to walk away and I told him "don't run." [CNP REDACTION] began running and I proceeded chasing him on foot. I gave verbal commands to stop but he did not. [CNP REDACTION] jumped over a tall black fence I was unable to jump over. As [CNP REDACTION] jumped over the fence, [CNP REDACTION] caused the fence gate to swing open. [CNP REDACTION] continued to run. Considering the subject was actively disobeying, escaping a lawful felony arrest, and a potential to cause injury to officers or himself by fleeing, I considered using my taser. [CNP REDACTION] was running toward another fence. I shouted verbal commands for him to stop or he would be tased and he continued running. I feared the risk of injury to an officer or Peart was significant if he continued to flee and jump over the next fence. The subject had approximately 15-20 feet in front of me and had a clear path to flee. Due to the low light situation, I had limited visibility which increased the possibility for hazard. At this time, seeing that the subject was running in a soft grassy area, I deployed my Taser aiming for the preferred target area the back of the subject. After deploying, the subject fell down in the grass and yelled. [CNP REDACTION] was handcuffed by Det.

In summary unless otherwise stated, on 8/19/18 at approximately 1824 hours, during a street stop on the [CNP REDACTION] I, Detective Pogorzelski #255 made contact with [CNP REDACTION] EPD REDACTION] whom I knew was wanted by Detective Hick for unlawful use of credit card (case number: [CNP REDACTION]). [CNP REDACTION] looked in my direction and began running northbound [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] briefly stopped running in front of[CNP REDACTION] at which point he looked in my direction and raised a glass bottle putting me in fear of receiving a batter from the apparent weapon in his left hand. I had prior knowledge that [CNP REDACTION] resists arrest and is combative with police. I gave [CNP REDACTION] verbal orders to get on the ground or he would be tased. [CNP REDACTION] refused to comply with my verbal commands and turned to begin running again southbound in front of [CNP REDACTION], at which time I activated the power on my department issued Taser and deployed it accordance with departmental guidelines and training. The Taser deployment was successful. I observed that the Taser probes in [CNP REDACTION]'s lower back and right side of his buttocks. [CNP REDACTION] fell to the ground on the glass beer bottle that was in his hand, which broke as he fell to the ground. Detective Rosenbaum was able to place Hatfield in handcuffs (checked for proper fit). [CNP REDACTION] was advised that he was under arrest for a warrant and for an unlawful use of credit card investigation. The entirety of the incident was captured on my body worn camera.

In summary unless otherwise stated, on 06/17/16 at approximately 2317 hrs., during a traffic stop at [CNP REDACTION] I, Ofc. Rosenbaum #161 ordered [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] seated in the front passenger seat, to step out of the vehicle. When [CNP REDACTION] stepped out of the car, he took several steps back from the doorway of the vehicle. I told him to come to the rear of the car so I could pat him down, and he began to comply. [CNP REDACTION] took several steps towards the rear of the car, and then fled westbound on foot, then northbound through the west alley of Dodge. As he ran, I observed [CNP REDACTION] holding his waistband with his right hand. Fearing that [CNP REDACTION] was armed and concealing a weapon, I gave a loud verbal command to [CNP REDACTION] that I would deploy my Taser against him if he didn't stop. Price continued to run, and continued to hold his waistband. I then deployed my Taser for a full 5 second cycle into [CNP REDACTION]upper back. [CNP REDACTION] continued to run for several more feet, but stumbled, and fell in the rear driveway area of [CNP REDACTION], sliding behind a parked car. As I came around the side of the vehicle, I observed [CNP REDACTION] produce what appeared to be a handgun from his waistband area. I dropped my taser to the ground and drew my service weapon and gave [CNP REDACTION] approximately 3 verbal commands to "drop the gun." I saw [CNP REDACTION] make a throwing motion with his left hand, and heard the sound consistent with a gun striking and sliding along the pavement. [CNP REDACTION] then got up, and ran several more feet eastbound through the back yard of [CNP REDACTION], and tripped and fell to the ground again. We were then able to place [CNP REDACTION] in handcuffs (double locked, checked for fit) without further incident.

In summary unless otherwise stated, on 03/15/17 at approximately 1845 hrs, I, Ofc. Rosenbam #161 and was assigned as backup for a traffic stop at [CNP REDACTION]. I assisted Officer Neal in taking [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] into custody after he was found to have a large plastic baggie containing suspect cannabis concealed within his pants. [CNP REDACTION]'s cell phone was located during the search. [CNP REDACTION] asked to have the phone in his pocket so it could be brought with him to the station. Myself, and Officer Pogorzelski led [CNP REDACTION] back to our squad car. While I attempted to gather further information from Officer Neal, Officer Pogorzelski informed me that [CNP REDACTION] was attempting to make a phone call. Based on what I could hear from the rear of the vehicle, it sounded as if [CNP REDACTION] was attempting to summon unknown individuals to the scene of the stop. From training and experience, I knew that [CNP REDACTION]'s actions posed an immediate risk to officer safety, as additional, possible hostile parties, could result in an escalation of the situation. As I got closer to the rear of the car, I heard [CNP REDACTION] say "Get here quick!" I entered the rear of the vehicle to retrieve the phone from [CNP REDACTION] . I gave [CNP REDACTION] approximately 3 verbal commands to give me the phone. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s hands to retrieve the phone. [CNP REDACTION] began thrashing around, and I placed my knee on his thigh to keep him in place. [CNP REDACTION] continued to thrash around, and being verbally abusive to officers. While within several inches of [CNP REDACTION]'s face, [CNP REDACTION] yelled "Hit me, I dare you, I'll sue the shit out of you bitch." While doing so, [CNP REDACTION] spat in my face, causing spittle to strike the area around my eyes, nost, and mouth. Officer Pogorzelski retrieved the phone, and we returned to the front of our squad. I observed several small cuts to my fingers actively bleeding. I then heard [CNP REDACTION] kicking the rear doors and the partition. I returned to the rear of the squad and opened the door to stop [CNP REDACTION] from causing possible damage to the vehicle. I advised [CNP REDACTION] to stop kicking the doors, and attempted to shut the door. [CNP REDACTION] placed his shoe in the door to prevent it from closing. I attempted to shut the door again, and did so successfully. [CNP REDACTION] declined offers for medical attention. Officer Pogorzelski later informed me that while I was attempting to grab the cell phone, she observed [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION]. Nothing further. 17-2400 3/15/17 13/01/2021 Rosenbaum 161 Skokie Joint Manipulation Techniques 2nd Ward 20 M B DUI, Possession of Cannabis Radio assignment, backup officer Dusk Rosenbaum #161 Altercation with arrestee redacted Redacted Jasen McClure Altercation with Officer Redacted 15/1459 0 3 Rosenbaum; Neal; Pogorzelski No Trying to get cellphone from arrestee's hands while in back of police car
In summary, on 01/22/18 at approximately 1646 hours I, Detective Rosenbaum #161 was responding to an armed robbery that occurred at [CNP REDACTION]. The offender was initially described as an older male/black with a dark coat and blue jeans who fled southbound from the location. The subject was observed by the victim to have a revolver tucked in his waistband. I attempted to affect a street stop on an individual matching that description, now known to be [EPD REDACTION] in front of [CNP REDACTION]. I gave [EPD REDACTION] verbal commands to put his hands up and turn around, which he complied with. Due to caller's description of an armed offender, I had my service weapon drawn in the sul position. Upon approaching [EPD REDACTION], I holstered my weapon and took control of his right arm using empty hand joint manipulation techniques. I immediately informed [EPD REDACTION] of the reason for the stop. [EPD REDACTION] became argumentative, stating we should check the library when I asked him if he had a firearm in his possession. While assist officers attempted to conduct a pat-down for weapons, [EPD REDACTION] became increasingly agitated, thrashing his body side to side and attempting to turn towards officers. Fearing that [EPD REDACTION] was attempting to access a concealed weapon, I pulled [EPD REDACTION] arm behind his body. I gave [EPD REDACTION] verbal commands to stop resisting but [EPD REDACTION] continued to pull away from me, and thrash his body from side to side. I began handcuffing [EPD REDACTION] but [EPD REDACTION] pulled away from me and turned towards me in an attempt to defeat my efforts. I pushed [EPD REDACTION] towards the side of 860 Chicago, and maneuvered [EPD REDACTION] arm behind his back in order to complete handcuffing [EPD REDACTION]. While being handcuffed, [EPD REDACTION] complained of pain to his wrists and arms. After a show-up was conducted with the victim, it was determined that [EPD REDACTION] was not the offender from the armed robbery. [EPD REDACTION] was subsequently released from handcuffs. [EPD REDACTION] did not request medical assistance for the alleged wrist and arm pain at the scene of the stop. It should be noted that body worn camera footage was reviewed prior to authoring this report. Nothing further at this time. 18-603 1/22/18 04/01/2021 Rosenbaum 161 3rd Ward Handcuffing (Evanston) Redacted Redacted M B Redacted Radio assignment, backup officer Light N/A N/A Redacted N/A Redacted Redacted Redacted 3 0 3 Rosenbaum; "assist officers" Yes Report of Armed Robbery
In summary unless otherwise stated, on 02/26/18 at approximately 1816 hrs., during a traffic stop at [CNP REDACTION] I, Det. Rosenbaum #161 made contact with [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION], whom I knew had an active warrant for his arrest. I opened the driver's side door and gave [CNP REDACTION] verbal commands to turn off the vehicle step out of the car. [CNP REDACTION] complied, and I took control of his right arm and Det. Holliman #150 grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm. [CNP REDACTION] asked why he was being asked out of the vehicle and I told him he had a warrant. [CNP REDACTION] was told to put his hands behind his back, and which point he began twisting from side to side and pulling his hands away from us, ignoring the commands from my partner and I. Det. Holliman was able to apply one handcuff and ordered [CNP REDACTION] to get on the ground, and that he would be tased if he continued to resist, which [CNP REDACTION] ignored. [CNP REDACTION] continued to tense his arms and thrash from side to side, actively resisting our efforts to place him under arrest. My partner and I continued to try to handcuff [CNP REDACTION] through empty hand joint manipulation techniques which proved ineffective. I drew my taser and warned [CNP REDACTION] that he would be tased. Boyd continued to ignore verbal commands to stop resisting and to lie on the ground. After multiple warnings I deployed my taser into [CNP REDACTION]'s mid-back for a full 5 second cycle. [CNP REDACTION] then complied with our commands to roll over and was handcuffed (double locked, checked for fit). It should be noted that while attempting to take [CNP REDACTION] into custody, my body worn camera's power switch was inadvertently knocked into the off position for several seconds. The entirety of the incident was captured on both my partner's BWC and the in-car camera.

In summary unless otherwise stated, on 05/28/20 at approximately 1453 hrs., Det. Popp #116 and myself, Det. Rosenbaum #161 attempted to place a wanted subject, [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] under arrest. I knew [CNP REDACTION] to have multiple wants and warrants for burglary, crinimal trespass, and possession of stolen property. I also knew [CNP REDACTION] to have an extensive criminal history, including crimes of violence (assaulting and obstructing). It should be noted that I was wearing plain clothes and an exterior ballistic vest carrier with police identifiers on both the front and the rear. While traveling north in the 600 block of Dodge, I activated my unmarked police vehicle's emergency equipment and pulled alongside [CNP REDACTION]. My partner and I had both identified our office and Det. Popp gave [CNP REDACTION] repeated verbal commands to stop. [CNP REDACTION] disregarded said commands, stated he would not stop, and continued to ride northbound. [CNP REDACTION] then fled our attempt to stop him, recklessly weaving through heavy vehicle traffic on Dodge, forcing vehicles to slam on their brakes and swerve in order to avoid striking him. After pursuing [CNP REDACTION] through several side streets and aleys in the 600/700 blocks of Dodge and 700 block of Brown, I located [CNP REDACTION] exiting the back yard at [CNP REDACTION]. Based on [CNP REDACTION]'s continued reckless actions, I feared that not taking him into custody immediately would risk bodily harm occurring to [CNP REDACTION] , pursuing officers, and/or citizens in the area. I drew my Taser, I gave [CNP REDACTION] three verbal commands to "get off the bike," and advised him he was under arrest. [CNP REDACTION] disregarded all commands, and I attempted to grab [CNP REDACTION] by the arm to place him into custody. [CNP REDACTION] pulled away from me and continued to attempt to flee. I then used an open hand push to take [CNP REDACTION] off his bicycle. [CNP REDACTION] fell into a nearby bush, where I attempted to gain physical control from the "mount" position until assisting officers arrived. During this time, [CNP REDACTION] attempted to slap the Taser out of my hand. I again advised [CNP REDACTION] he was under arrest, and gave him four verbal commands to "stop fighting." I then warned [CNP REDACTION] that I would deploy OC against him if he countinued to fight. Upon the arrival of Dets. Pogorzelski #255 and Popp #116, I attempted to place [CNP REDACTION] on his stomach for handcuffing. [CNP REDACTION] continued to tense his muscles, pull away from detectives, and resist efforts to be turned over and placed in handcuffs. I then deployed an approximately two second burst of OC spray at [CNP REDACTION]'s face. The application of OC spray was somewhat effective, and myself and Det. Popp were able to maneuver [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm behind his back. However, DAVIS continued to tense his right arm and resist Det. Pogorzelski's efforts. I then deployed another approximately two second burst of OC spray to the right side of [CNP REDACTION]'s face. [CNP REDACTION] was then successfully handcuffed and placed into custody. BWC and dashcam was reviewed prior to authoring this report.

On 8/25/2019 at approximately 13:45 Hours I Detective Sosa #103 responded to the area of [CNP REDACTION] for a battery in progress. Communications advised that the male subject was battering a female subject. Upon arrival I heard Officer Ostap over the radio advise responding units the subject [CNP REDACTION] was going to be combative and he was leaving the area on foot northbound on Darrow towards Lake Street. I observed [CNP REDACTION] walking away westbound from the officers in the middle of Lake Street towards Dodge. Upon my approach Officer Nelson was ordering [CNP REDACTION] to the ground. I observed delayed compliance from [CNP REDACTION]. I handcuffed [CNP REDACTION]’s right wrist and Officer Serviss Handcuffed the left wrist. There were only simple handcuffing techniques used to apply the handcuffs. Simple empty hand control methods were used to subdue [CNP REDACTION] while he was being uncooperative with police and paramedics. I did not accompany officers and [CNP REDACTION] to the hospital for the psychological evaluation. See additional supplements and field general for further details. I reviewed my body camera footage prior to authoring this report. 19-7638 09/01/19 23/12/2020 Carrasco 152 2nd Ward Wrist lock 5th Ward 28 M B DNA Radio Assignment Light None DNA DNA DNA DNA DNA DNA 14 7 4 Sosa; Ostap; Nelson; Serviss Yes Report of battery - Involuntary Committal - Wrist Locks
On 06-01-2018 at approximately 1043 I, Detective C. Just *190, heard dispatch radio that a male subject, possibly a juvenile, had run into the road at Emerson and Hartrey and been struck by a vehicle. I went to the area and located an injured adult male black sitting on the curb speaking with Evanston Officers. I made contact with a woman who identified herself as a witness who stated she was driving Westbound on Emerson when she saw the adult male roll from a vehicle that was proceeding Eastbound on Emerson. The witness, [EPD REDACTION], told me that she saw the man's head hit the ground in the middle of the roadway. While I was speaking further with [EPD REDACTION] I saw the man, later identified as [EPD REDACTION] stand up and begin to stumble away on foot [EPD REDACTION] ran West into the road, away from Officers requesting that he remain on scene for medical attention. [EPD REDACTION] continued running West in the roadway, then suddenly approach the driver's side door of a light colored sedan that was stopped in traffic due to the incident. I witnessed [EPD REDACTION] pull back on the driver's side door handle to enter the occupied vehicle, however the door did not open and [EPD REDACTION] continued to run West in the middle of the roadway. Due to the increased public safety risk of [EPD REDACTION] attempting to enter an occupied vehicle, I pursued [EPD REDACTION] on foot and caught up to him in front of [CNP REDACTION]. I drew my department issued Electronic Control Weapon (Taser) and identified myself as an Evanston Police Officer. I gave several loud, clear directions to [EPD REDACTION] to get on the ground. [EPD REDACTION] paused for several seconds, then lowered himself onto the ground but rolled his body away from Officers. I directed [EPD REDACTION] to lay face down but he refused. Ofc. Sosa was able to secure one handcuff on [EPD REDACTION] left arm before [EPD REDACTION] swung his right arm toward me. [EPD REDACTION] then used his right arm to push away from being secured and then kicked his legs out. I loudly told [EPD REDACTION] to stop resisting otherwise he would be tased. [EPD REDACTION] continued to swing his body away from Ofc. Sosa and he refused directions to comply. Due to [EPD REDACTION] continued physical resistance, I deployed my Taser and made contact with [EPD REDACTION] The Taser appeared to have little effect as a result of the deployment and he continued to pull away from Officers. [EPD REDACTION] rolled his body away from Officers and rose to his knees. [EPD REDACTION] maintained his refusal to comply and swung his arms from Officers. In yet another effort to secure [EPD REDACTION] I deployed my Taser again (drive stun), and [EPD REDACTION] rolled onto his stomach. Multiple Officers were now on scene to assist in placing [EPD REDACTION] arms behind his back to secure him in handcuffs as he continued to pull his arms from being secured. Once secured in handcuffs, I observed [EPD REDACTION] snap his head toward the leg of Sgt. Bush and bite his pant. [EPD REDACTION] was transported via ambulance to Post 10 for medical treatment. During the struggle to secure [EPD REDACTION], multiple Officers (including Ofc. Sosa) made contact with [EPD REDACTION] blood, including myself. I completed an Injury on Duty Report and a Use of Force Report. 18-4658 6/1/18 10/12/2020 Just 190 5th Ward Taser Deployment 26P (#25) 5th Ward 49 M B Redacted On-view Daylight C.

On 06/27/2019 at appoximately 2318 hours, Officer Niedziela and I, Officer Masucci, responded to [CNP REDACTION] to assist Officer Roden with a disturbance. The nature of the call was later determined to be domestic in nature. Officer Roden met with the victim, [CNP REDACTION], while Officer Sosa, Officer Niedziela, and I met with the suspected offender, [CNP REDACTION]. Officer Roden advised [CNP REDACTION] wanted to sign complaints against Thomas, at which time Officer Sosa, Officer Niedziela, and I approached [CNP REDACTION], directing him to place his hands behind his back and stop moving away from us. As we approached [CNP REDACTION], who was passively resisting by not complying with clear direct orders from police officers and backing away. Officer Sosa approached Thomas by grabbing Thomas’ right arm, Officer Niedziela grabbed onto [CNP REDACTION]’s left hand, and moved [CNP REDACTION] onto the bed. While on the right side of [CNP REDACTION], who was not lying on his stomach, with Officer Sosa positioned on his right shoulder, Officer Niedziela on his left arm, I grabbed [CNP REDACTION]’s right wrist, placing it in a handcuff. I then placed [CNP REDACTION]’s left wrist in the handcuff. The handcuffs were checked for proper fit, double locked and tension checked. [CNP REDACTION] was then escorted outside of the home. While on the walkway in the front yard of the residence, [CNP REDACTION] let his body go limp, falling to the ground. [CNP REDACTION] then shook on the ground, flopping his head in the dirt, kicking his legs, and was spitting. [CNP REDACTION] was still ignoring police commands at this time. An ambulance arrived, and [CNP REDACTION] was moved to a gurney. A spit mask was placed on [CNP REDACTION], due to him spitting and face covered in saliva. [CNP REDACTION] was moving his body aggressively by rocking back and forth with his body weight, almost falling out of the gurney, ignoring directions from police and fire personnel. [CNP REDACTION] was then restrained to the gurney and moved into the ambulance. While in the ambulance, [CNP REDACTION], still wearing his spit mask, spat aggressively (building a large amount of saliva in his mouth, positioning his body towards the paramedic and lunging forward as he spat) at a paramedic. No saliva made contact with the paramedic. While in the ambulance, [CNP REDACTION] advised his wrist hurt, while twisting and contorting his body, handcuffed and strapped to the gurney. I un-handcuffed [CNP REDACTION]’s left wrist, keeping his right wrist handcuffed, then handcuffed [CNP REDACTION] to the gurney. I then checked the handcuff on [CNP REDACTION]’s right wrist, showing him it was loose enough to slide up and down part of his wrist. Once at Post 11, [CNP REDACTION] was seen by Doctor Iglesia. [CNP REDACTION] refused medical treatment and was discharged. After the hospital discharged [CNP REDACTION], [CNP REDACTION] was told he would be transported back to Evanston Police Department. [CNP REDACTION] then refused to listen to officer commands and passively resisted by ignoring officer order and going limp. [CNP REDACTION], fell from the hospital bed, refusing to comply with officers. Sergeant Sullivan arrived on scene to assist. [CNP REDACTION] was assisted out of the hospital via wheelchair. Prior to being placed in our marked squad car, [CNP REDACTION] again began complaining of his wrist. To accommodate [CNP REDACTION], we used two sets of handcuffs to restrain [CNP REDACTION] and then placed him in the rear of our squad car. [CNP REDACTION] was then transported to Evanston Police Department without incident. Once in Evanston Lock Up, [CNP REDACTION] was turned over to Officer Roden and Desk Officer Kollar. This incident is captured on Body Camera.

On 04/19/16 at approximately 23:10 Hours I Officer Sosa#103 responded to the EPD lock-up to assist with an uncooperative subject. While attempting to walk [CNP REDACTION] to his cell he refused several verbal commands issued by Sergeant Hart to keep walking. [CNP REDACTION] bladed his stance towards Sergeant Hart, balled his left hand into a fist and said "what you gonna do about it (racial epithet). I pushed [CNP REDACTION] with two open hands causing him to fall to the ground. I placed my Taser on his back and advised him to place his hands behind his back or he would be Tased. [CNP REDACTION] was handcuffed and placed into his cell without further incident.

On 09/03 at approximately 18:31 Hours I Officer Sosa #103 responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a domestic battery in progress Upon arrival I met with [CNP REDACTION] in the entry way of the kitchen and attempted to interview him in Spanish. I observed him to have a heavy odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his exhaled breath, slurred speech and blood shot eyes. I also observed him to be breathing heavy and appeared to have a grimace and agitated. I informed him that I was advised he was involved in a disturbance. I request [CNP REDACTION] to step into the living room away from the kitchen and take his hands out of his pants that he was holding. I wanted to conduct a pat down of [CNP REDACTION] and exit the close quarters of the kitchen area and distance myself from possible weapons. [CNP REDACTION] advised that he did not have to do anything and began to walk away from me back into the kitchen. I immediately grabbed his left arm in an attempt to walk him into the living room. [CNP REDACTION] pulled his arm away and walked into the kitchen. Do to the disobedience, close proximity of possible weapons, enclosed space, I pushed him towards the wall and advised him he was under arrest. [CNP REDACTION] continued to pull away from me. I knocked [CNP REDACTION] to the ground and delivered approximately three open hand strikes to the side of [CNP REDACTION]'s head and repeated verbal commands in an effort to gain compliance and subdue [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] continued to actively resist my efforts to place his behind his hands behind his back by pulling away. Officer Basner arrived on the scene and assisted handcuffing [CNP REDACTION] without further incident. 16-25805 9/10/16 12/01/2021 Sosa 103 5th Ward Open hand strike/takedown 5th Ward 41 M W Domestic Battery Radio Interior Lighting DNA DNA Redacted DNA Gerardo Zamudio, Sr. Redacted Redacted 2 7 2 Sosa; Basner No Domestic Battery Investigation
On 06/16/17 at approximately 20:16 Hours I responded to the area of [CNP REDACTION] for a robbery in progress. I stopped observed a subject, [CNP REDACTION] matching the description in front of [CNP REDACTION]. I gave clear loud verbal commands for the subject to get on the ground. I observed the subject reach into his pockets at which time I ordered him not to reach into his pockets and get on the ground. The subject removed his hands from his pockets but continued to refuse to get on the ground. Due to the nature of the call, the subject matching the description of the offender, the refusal to comply with clear verbal commands I felt my safety was at risk. I executed a takedown of the subject and placed him into handcuffs. The subject, [CNP REDACTION] was searched and I recovered a knife from his left waistband. [CNP REDACTION] was checked with negative results for warrants.

Upon arrival I observed a male white subject wearing a dark baseball hat and white shirt walking down the rear stairs of [CNP REDACTION]. The caller identified the subject as the offender, [CNP REDACTION]. I issued verbal commands for [CNP REDACTION] to stop walking away and come to my vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] refused to comply to my clear verbal commands to come to my vehicle approximately 4 times. I warned the subject that I would be forced to escalate to using force. I observed the subject to have blood shot watery eyes, slurred speech and a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on his person. It appeared that the subject had a grimace on his face and kept placing his hands behind his back. Due to the nature of the call, being unable to see the subjects hands were free of weapons, and refusing to comply with my commands I knocked the subject to the ground with an open hand shove causing him to fall back to the ground. I handcuffed him without further incident. [line redacted] See field general for further details.

On 10/24/2018 at approximately 1523 Hours I Officer Sosa #103 responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a disturbance call. While on the scene I learned that [CNP REDACTION] was on scene and possibly wanted for a previous battery that occured on 10/17/2018. I attempted to place [CNP REDACTION] into handcuffs while I investigated the matter futher. [CNP REDACTION] refused to comply after being issued approximately 6 verbal commands to sit down. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION] by his right arm which is when he began to comply. I then issued [CNP REDACTION] approximately 2 commands for him to place his hands behind his back at which time he refused and walked away. I walked behind him and grabbed him by his coat and led him to a seated position on the gorund. I issued approximately 4 more commands for him to place his hands behind his back and stop moving forward. [CNP REDACTION] refused to comply and attempted to pull away in order to resist my efforts to handcuff him. I attempted to keep him in a seated position while I attempted to manipulate his arms behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] was able to resist my efforts and shift his weight forward onto his left shoulder and side. I issued several more commands for him to stop moving forward. I continued to manupulate his right arm behind his back while he continued to pull his arm forward and shift his body forward which is when his position on the ground caused him to rub his face on the ground. Johnson sustained an abrasion on the left side of his face. I was finally able to handcuff [CNP REDACTION] and walk him over to Offcer Niedziela's #118 squad car and seatbelt him in for transport to the station for an aggravated bettery investigation and resisting. 18-9365 illegible 30/12/2020 Sosa 103 2nd Ward Joint Manipulation 2nd Ward 35 M B Resisting Radio Day light DNA DNA DNA DNA Michael L.

While attempting to interview the subject of the of the(sic) well-being check, [CNP REDACTION] closed the distance to me and was in less than an arm’s length away, clenched his hands into fists, bladed his stance and grimaced as he said “Man, I’m telling you, I have a good left and a good right”. Due to the delayed compliance to previous commands, apparent intoxication and observed aggressive behavior I felt I would be battered if I did not act immediately. I delivered and empty open hand push to the left side of [CNP REDACTION]’s face. Causing him to fall to the floor. Pack and I gave several verbal commands for him to put his hands behind his back but he refused to comply. Officer pack and I used simple joint manipulation to handcuff [CNP REDACTION].

In summary: On August 24, 2019 at approximately 1345 hours I Officer Serviss #206/1300 responded to the area of [CNP REDACTION] for a battery in progress. While enroute I heard Officer Ostap advise via radio that the offender [CNP REDACTION] was going to be combative and that he was walking away from the area on Lake St. I arrived and observed [CNP REDACTION] walking westbound on Lake St. with Ofc. Nelson giving him verbal commands to stop. I observed that [CNP REDACTION] was slow to comply with orders being given by Ofc. Nelson. Detective Sosa and I approached [CNP REDACTION] who at the time was on his knees but still verbally resistant. Detective Sosa handcuffed [CNP REDACTION]'s left wrist and I handcuffed his right wrist (2 sets of handcuffs) and the handcuffs were joined. [CNP REDACTION] was searched on the ground and then assisted to a sitting position and then a standing position by assisting officers. [CNP REDACTION] continued to be verbally combative and on numerous occasions attempted to pull away from officers and turn his body. [CNP REDACTION] refused to be placed into a squad car and simple wrist locks were used in an effort to stop his aggressive movements. While waiting for Evanston Fire Department paramedics [CNP REDACTION] continued to hold his body in a rigid state pushing back against officers in an attempt to flee. [CNP REDACTION] was placed on the ground while being held up by officers until paramedics arrived on scene. I reviewed my body camera footage prior to writing this report. 19-7638 09/01/19 23/12/2020 Sosa 103 2nd Ward Handcuffing 2nd Ward 28 M B Involuntary Committal Radio Assignment Well lit None N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A 14 8 4 Serviss; Ostap; Nelson; Sosa Yes Report of battery - Involuntary Committal - Handcuffing

It was determined that the subject was given several verbal commands to leave by Sergeant De Leon with negative results. The complainant made an on-view identification of the subject and was willing to sign complaints. I attempted to gain compliance with simple joint manipulation with negative results. I observed Sergeant De Leon also attempt simple joint manipulation with negative results. I advised the subject that he would be getting Tased if he did not comply. The subject began to grab my arm and at one point grabbed my leg. I did not feel that the officer presence, verbal commands, and joint manipulation to be working to affect the arrest. I felt that escalating the use of force would possible cause injury to the subject or Sergeant De Leon or myself. I unholstered my Taser X2 and advised the subject that he would be getting Tased if he did not comply. I gave another verbal command for the subject to stand up at which time he refused. I did not observe the subject comply with my commands and gave the subject another Taser warning. I deployed the Taser into his lower extremities as prescribed by my training. I observed immediate effects of the Taser and compliance with the subject. Sergeant De Leon Handcuffed the subject without further Incident. EFD ambulance #21 arrived on the scene and transported the subject to St. Francis Hospital to remove the Taser barb from his right thigh.

I chased [CNP REDACTION] on foot suspecting he was carrying a handgun. [CNP REDACTION] fell in the icy alley after dropping a handgun and I held him at gunpoint until I observed Sgt. Kohl and Officer Wozniak approaching my location on foot. As soon as Officer Wozniak got to me we both placed [CNP REDACTION] in handcuffs while Sgt. Kohl went to secure the handgun. At that time [the victim] asked me where my "camera thing" was, possibly referring to a body camera. I told him that we don't have body cams and he then asked what I did to him, saying I shot him. I told him I did not shoot him. He then said, "well you did something to me. [EPD REDACTION] I asked [CNP REDACTION] if he was injured and he did not reply. I asked him again if he was injured and he stated he was not. I did not observe any injuries to [CNP REDACTION] and he did not complain of any pain or injuries, just that he [EPD REDACTION] At no point were any strikes or other force techniques administered to [CNP REDACTION] during the arrest process.

The passenger of a motor vehicle was attempting to walk away from a traffic stop in an area of a recent shooting, after I lawfully ordered him to stop. I believed the subject could be armed due to his actions, and after asking the subject if he had a weapon, he stated “yeah, I got a weapon on me.” The subject refused multiple lawful commands to place his hands behind his back, stiffened his arms, appeared to reach towards his waist, attempted to pull away and disregarded my lawful orders. At that point, I grabbed [the victimarm and took him to the ground. Detective Kleinpaste and I then were able to place Wade into handcuffs after more verbal commands were given. The vehicle and occupants were subsequently secured, and I later learned [the victim] was seventeen years old. [CNP REDACTION] did not appear to be injured nor did he complain of any pain or injuries. [CNP REDACTION] was verbally non-compliant with questions, and was eventually transported to the station by Officers Gustafson and Nawotka. 19-4691 06/06/19 08/01/2021 A.Pack 176 5th Ward Take down 17 M Redacted No seatbelt, Disobedience to Police On-view Daylight N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A 15 0 4 A.Pack; Kleinpaste; Gustafson; Nawotka No Traffic Stop - UoF occurs as they attempt to handcuff arrestee
On 06/25/2019 at approximately 16:33 hours, I, Officer Antonio #224, was dispatched to Church St/East Prairie Ave to assist Officer Neal #128 on a traffic stop. Upon arrival at the scene, I observed Officer Neal #128 and Officer Appelt #241 standing by with [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] was the owner and driver of a blue Chrysler 200 (IL BE30719). While on the scene, a strong odor of cannabis was detected coming out of [CNP REDACTION]'s car. While Officer Neal was conducting his investigation, I, along with Sergeant Miller #26, Sergeant Wernick #5 and Officer Appelt, stood by with [CNP REDACTION]. During out standby with [CNP REDACTION], he threw his beverage at Sergeant Miller that he was holding in his right hand and immediately ran east on Church St. I, along with other assisting officers immediately ran after [CNP REDACTION]. I gave several loud verbal commands to [CNP REDACTION] to stop as he fled. [CNP REDACTION] refused and continued running east through the parking lot of 3407 Church St. White eventually ran toward a fence at the southeast side of the establishment parking lot and was cornered. While at the fence, I observed [CNP REDACTION] throw something later determined to be a clear bag of suspected cannabis over the fence. [CNP REDACTION] then turned and was facing me. I was not sure if [CNP REDACTION] had any weapons at this time. I immediately told [CNP REDACTION] to get down on the ground. [CNP REDACTION] was reluctant and did not immediately comply. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s right hand, and along with the assistance of detective Rosenbaum #161 and Sgt Wernick, we took [CNP REDACTION] to the ground. [CNP REDACTION] was taken down with an empty hand takedown, in that I took hold of his right and hand guided him to the ground.

On 07/18/2019 at approximately 12:36 hours, while off duty I, Officer Antonio #224, was at 8500 W. Golf Rd in Niles IL (Walmart) Shopping when I observed a disturbance inside the store. The disturbance was with a male later identified as [CNP REDACTION] and several Walmart shoppers and employees. At a point during the disturbance, [EPD REDACTION] made several threats to fight a shopper. During the argument with an unidentified male who attempted to intervene before I did, [CNP REDACTION] said to the unknown male, “you want to take it outside and fight?” At this point, I intervened by announcing my office (EPD) and showing [CNP REDACTION] my Evanston Police ID card. [CNP REDACTION] continued to argue and wanted to fight with shoppers. [CNP REDACTION] kept shouting and swearing at shoppers he was arguing with. In fear of him causing a battery toward shopper(s) and me, I advised Sapienza several times to walk away. Sapienza continued to argue and cause a disturbance. During the encounter with [CNP REDACTION], he continued to make threats to batter shoppers during the disturbance. At a point during the disturbance, Sapienza turned toward and employee who was stocking shelves in an aisle nearby and came in close proximity of the employee. [CNP REDACTION] was still yelling at shoppers at this time. At this point in fear of [CNP REDACTION] battering the employee in the aisle, I took hold of [CNP REDACTION]'s right wrist. While briefly holding his right wrist in my right hand, [CNP REDACTION] turned himself around toward a shelf in the store. I did push or pull [CNP REDACTION] in any direction. I then released [CNP REDACTION]'s wrist once he stopped yelling threats toward shoppers and employees. I only took control of [CNP REDACTION]'s wrist for approximately 3 seconds before releasing it. Several witnesses observed the incident. I have nothing further at this time. 19-6455 07/25/19 18/12/2020 Antonio 224 Niles Open Empty Hand 63 M Redacted N/A On View Daylight N/A N/A Unknown if he got medical treatment N/A Dominic Sapienza Open Empty Hand Control N/A 25 0 1 Antonio N/A (Off-duty) Disturbance in Store while Off-Duty - UoF occurred to make shopper calm down
In summary but not verbatim, on 3/27/16 at approximately 20:35hrs, Officer Golubski #240 and I Officer N. Basner #135 made contact with suspect [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION]. I told [CNP REDACTION] he was under arrest for assault. I grabbed for [CNP REDACTION]'s right arm and he resisted by grabbing onto the door frame nearest him. I again told [CNP REDACTION] not to resist arrest and to place his hand behind his back. I unholstered my tazer and targeted [CNP REDACTION]'s stomach and told him that he would be tazed if he continued to resist my efforts of arrest. Based on Officer Golubski's position and for her safety, I felt it was safer to reholster the tazer and again attempt empty hand control tactics to arrest [CNP REDACTION]. I then grabbed the hood on [CNP REDACTION]'s sweater and pulled it over his head and downward in an attempt to place him on the ground. I pulled [CNP REDACTION] out of the doorway but [CNP REDACTION] defeated my effort to place him on the ground by standing straight up. [CNP REDACTION] was pushing with his legs and still trying to grab for the door frame behind him. I attempted to strike [CNP REDACTION] once by punching him with my right hand. I targeted his left side of his torso. However, as [CNP REDACTION] continued to stand and pull away my right hand made incidental contact with the left side of his head. I then grabbed his right arm with both hands and attempted a leg sweep. This caused [CNP REDACTION] to lean forward but he was still pulling away with his arms to defeat arrest. Assisting officer grabbed his left arm. I then observed [CNP REDACTION] turn towards Officer Golubski #240. Officer Golubski #240 then deployed her tazer against [CNP REDACTION] (See Officer Golubski's reports). [CNP REDACTION] fell to the ground. I was then able to grab [EPD REDACTION]'s left and right hands and place then into handcuffs.

In summary but not verbatim, I Officer N. Basner #135 responded to 1336 Chicago Ave (Bank of America) for a robbery in progress. Upon arrival, I observed a tall heavy set male subject (later identified as [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] wearing a white hat with a white towel draped over his face standing in the vestibule of the bank facing a woman [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] turned around and exited the bank toward police. Due to the nature of the call (Robbery), my firearm was out and pointed at the subject. I was giving [CNP REDACTION] verbal commands to get on the ground and he refused. [CNP REDACTION] slowly walked to a nearby white van and stopped with his hands in his waist. [CNP REDACTION] again was told to get on the ground by which he did not comply. Without instruction, [CNP REDACTION] began walking toward me with his hands free. In fear for my safety and that [CNP REDACTION] would flee, I holstered my pistol and quickly approached [CNP REDACTION]. Also fearing [CNP REDACTION] may be armed, I grabbed him with both hands and delivered a knee strike to quickly apprehend him without delay or fight. I then obtained [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm and knelt on him. I gained control of his left hand and placed him in handcuffs. 16-25395 8/30/16 24/01/2021 Basner 135 3rd Ward Knee Strike 19 M B Armed Robbery, UUW Armed Robbery-Radio dispatch for in progress robbery Dark with well-lighted parking lot None N/A Redacted N/A Trenton S.

In summary on 12/03/2017 at approximately 15:44 hrs, I conducted a domestic battery investigation. During this investigation, I placed the arrestee [CNP REDACTION], under arrest for domestic battery. I verbally ordered [CNP REDACTION] to turn around and place his hands behind him. [CNP REDACTION] complied with my order. I took [CNP REDACTION]'s left hand (using my left hand to hold his) and placed a handcuff on his left wrist using my right hand to apply the handcuff. I then switched to placing the right cuff on his right wrist using my left and right hands. As a matter of course, I quickly placed a finger under each handcuff and push the double lock function on each handcuff to ensure proper fit. [CNP REDACTION] was escorted to my patrol car and seated in the car without any resistance. Once at the police station, the handcuffs were removed from the wrists of [CNP REDACTION].

n Summary: On the above date, time and location I Officer Benoit along with Officer Golubski responded to a complaint of a male subject wandering around the area and who appeared to be smoking cannabis, to conduct a well-being check. Upon arrival I located a subject matching the description walking west approaching Prairie, I pulled my squad car along the side of him and he began running westbound but then stopped at the corner and began speaking to me. While speaking to the subject I observed that he was nervous, speech confused and actions erratic while attempting to conceal an object under his coat or sweatshirt. He then presented a small "Blunt" claiming to be cannabis and admitting to have been smoking it prior to my arrival. We advised the subject, Later identified as [EPD REDACTION] that we noticed him attempting to conceal an object and he began reaching towards that area. I instructed him to raise his hands, which he refused and continued reaching towards the area on his person. I attempted to gain control of his arm and hand, which [EPD REDACTION] snatch his arm away and began backing up. As I attempted to grab [EPD REDACTION] and gain control of his person, [EPD REDACTION] then began flailing his arms and pushing me to avoid being detained and searched. [EPD REDACTION] then escaped my clutch and began running west in the street. I deployed my taser at [EPD REDACTION] to prevent his escape but there was no effect and [EPD REDACTION] continued running west. While following [EPD REDACTION] a citizen [EPD REDACTION] physically blocked [EPD REDACTION] path and corralled him, [EPD REDACTION] again attempted to push past [EPD REDACTION] and eventually stopped running (I instructed him to get on the ground) and kneeled on the ground and was handcuffed, and taken into protective custody.

Officers M. Buell #223. T. Messing #228 and K. Jacobs #248 were attempting to take [CNP REDACTION] into custody and he was actively resisting by refusing to place his arms behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] was face down with his arms tucked under his body and he was kicking his legs. The officers and [CNP REDACTION] were on the ground inside the vestibule at the outer west door. The officers were using knee strikes and verbal commands attempting to gain control of the subject who was face down and pulling his arms under his body to avoid arrest. I un-holstered my conducted electrical weapon, CEW (Taser). I then aimed it at [CNP REDACTION]'s left rear shoulder and deployed the Taser initiating a 5 second cycle. Both prongs entered [CNP REDACTION]'s body and he stopped resisting and placed his hands behind his back and was handcuffed without further hesitation. EFD was called to the scene to remove the taser prongs an ET Leeson #185 responded to the scene to process and collect the deployed taser cartridge. 17-4665 5/20/17 15/12/2020 Bernhardt 217 8th Ward Taser Deployment 28 M A Retail theft, Aggravated battery, Resisting a peace officer Dispatched retail theft and battery in progress - assist unit Daylight None N/A Redacted N/A Sang Han Ko Taser Deployment Redacted 10 0 4 Bernhardt; Buell; Messing; Jacobs No Report of fight and retail theft - fight ongoing on arrival

On the aforementioned date/time, Ofcs: K. Jacobs, T. Messing and I, Buell, responded to the Best Buy store located at 2301 Howard St, in regards to a subject armed with a razor, fighting a security guard. This is an account of my observations and actions during this incident. Upon arrival, I observed a subject now known to be [CNP REDACTION], being detained by a Best Buy employee near the cash register area (just to the left of the entrance/exit doors) at this location. During this time responding officers went to the area where [CNP REDACTION] and the Best Buy employee were at. At this time [CNP REDACTION] began to struggle with this employee, and appeared to be looking to flee the location. After making this observation, I attempted to detain Ko, and place him under arrest. During this time [CNP REDACTION] struck me with his hands about my upper body (chest) area. [CNP REDACTION] then broke free from our attempted detainment, and began to flee on foot within this location (store). This is when I once again attempted to place [CNP REDACTION] into custody. However [CNP REDACTION] continued to fight and repeatedly attempted to get up off the ground. Due to [CNP REDACTION]'s aggressive behavior (refused to obey our verbal commands to place his hands behind his back, flail his arms, and attempt to resist arrest). I began to administer foot, and knee strikes, along with closed hand strikes to [CNP REDACTION]'s face area. During this time I attempted to once again gain control of [CNP REDACTION]'s arms in an attempt to get him cuffed. [CNP REDACTION] was eventually handcuffed with the assistance of numerous officers. 17-4665 5/20/17 15/12/2020 Buell 223 8th Ward OC spray, open hand tactics, close hand strikes, knee/foot 28 M A Aggravated Battery, Retail Theft, Resisting and battery to P.O.

On the 30May2017 at approximately 1655 hours, I (Buell #223/1132), responded to the Jewel-Osco parking lot located at 1128 Chicago Ave, in regards to Ofc: Yates needing assistance with a subject (offender) now identified as [CNP REDACTION] (listed). Upon my arrival, I immediately observed Ofc: Yates, and an unknown citizen subject engaged in a very physical altercation on the ground with [CNP REDACTION], in the no parking/fire lane (zone) near the far north end of the Jewel-Osco parking lot. After exiting my marked squad vehicle (#58), I first attempted to take control of the combative subject's legs in an attempt to control him, and turn him over to his stomach in order to get him handcuffed. During this time, the subject was repeatedly ordered to stop resisting and to put his hands behind his back. The subject continued to disregard police verbal commands, and continued to resist our attempts at placing him into custody. Seeing that his control technique was unsuccessful, and that the subject continued to resist, I then moved (relocated) to the subject's upper body area (torso/shoulders) in order to gain control of his shoulders and head. The subject continued to resist and disregard police verbal commands. During this time, we/I were unable to turn the subject onto his stomach. It was at this time I realized the subject might be trying to turn his body in an attempt to get to his feet. Ofc. Yates appeared to be getting fatigued. Therefore, after making these observations, I elected to use an open hand stun technique to the back of the subject's head. After utilizing this trained technique, the subject appeared to be in a daze state, and I continued to control the subject's upper body. Officers continued to order the subject to stop resisting and to put his hands behind his back. A short time later the subject was successfully handcuffed by several officers. 17-5084 6/10/17 Buell 223 3rd Ward Open hand stun technique 18 M B Battery Officer needs assistance (backup officer) Daylight N/A N/A Redacted N/A Gillett (see above) Take down (Officer Yates) Redacted 6/1472 0 4 Buell; Yates; "officers" No race not redacted in narrative Assist in Arrest - UoF was used to daze resisting arrestee

On 15 January 2017 at approximately 0048 hours I, Sergeant J. Bust #10, responded to [CNP REDACTION], to assist EFD with a medical run. [CNP REDACTION] appeared to be under the influence of an unknown narcotic. He was clothed only in a pair of jeans and appeared nervous, had dilated pupils, and was running around the hotel room disobeying orders from the Evanston Fire Department. I observed Trigg push away from one of the fire fighters that was attempting to render aid. At that point I gave [CNP REDACTION] a loud clear verbal command to place his hands behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] did not comply with my orders and attempted to push past me. I attempted to grasp [CNP REDACTION]'s arm with both of my hands. [CNP REDACTION] pushed me with both open hands in my chest. I began to struggle with [CNP REDACTION] and was assisted by Sergeant Wernick and Commander Sacluti in conducting a take-down. We fell to the ground and he continued to resist arrest by flailing his arms and kicking his legs. I continued to use open hand techniques to place the subject into custody.

A short time later Officer Serviss #206 stated that he observed the vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed westbound on Main from Brown Street. Officer Serviss #206 advised that the vehicle had crashed at the northwest corner of Fowler Avenue and Main Street. Officer Serviss #206 radioed that the driver had fled on foot westbound from that location. At approximately 2421 Main Street I observed Officer Serviss #206, Detective Just #190, and Detective Tamburrino #123 attempting to place the driver into custody. The driver was actively resisting arrest by flailing his arms and legs and attempting to free himself. I exited my marked squad car #49 and approached the group.

While investigating the incident, the parties became argumentative and verbally aggressive. I attempted to verbally diffuse the argument after which one party, [CNP REDACTION], began to shout "Play with me, play with me, I wanna fight too, I wanna fight too" at the other subject on scene. [CNP REDACTION] was waiving(sic) her hand while shouting. I believed that if [CNP REDACTION] was not removed from the area, the incident would continue to escalate. It should be noted that during the investigation [CNP REDACTION] had been identified as having driven while her driver's license was revoked. I then attempted to affect an arrest on [CNP REDACTION]. I took hold of [CNP REDACTION]'s right wrist, and attempted to place a handcuff on her arm after which she pulled her arm away forcefully, and turned her body towards me. Due to her previously aggressive behavior, I believed that [CNP REDACTION] was going to retailiate, and attempt to defeat the arrest. To prevent further physical altercation, I took hold of [CNP REDACTION]'s upper body with both arms, and performed a take down. [CNP REDACTION] was then placed into custody without further incident. Body worn camera video was reviewed prior to drafting this report. 18-7840 9/3/18 09/12/2020 Carrigan 138 2nd Ward Take down-upper body pull down 21 F B Driving while license revoked Assignment Daylight N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A 4 1 1 Carrigan Yes Traffic Accident - UoF used when arrestee turned towards officer after pulling arm away from officer's grasp
On 05/24/17 at approximately 1315 hrs, I, Det. Carter #130, was assisting the TAC unit with a traffic stop. One of the passengers of the vehicle, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], fled the scene of the traffic stop on foot. [CNP REDACTION] fled on foot into moving traffic where he collided with a vehicle traveling south on Ridge. Despite colliding with the vehicle and being given multiple loud verbal commands to stop running by myself and Detective Holliman, [CNP REDACTION] continued to flee south on Ridge. At this point, I immediately began to pursue Mr. Smith on foot as he ran towards the back yard of [CNP REDACTION]. I gave clear and loud verbal commands that I was the Police and for Mr. Smith to stop running. Mr. Smith continued to run through the driveway of [CNP REDACTION] and approached the rear fence of [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] attempted to jump over the fence. I attempted to pull [CNP REDACTION] off of the fence that he was trying to climb over. I continued to give him verbal commands to stop running. Seconds later, Detective Holliman arrived in the back yard. Detective Holliman also gave [CNP REDACTION] verbal commands to get off the fence. [CNP REDACTION] ignored our verbal commands. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION] by his shirt and pulled him down to the grass. [CNP REDACTION] was still attempting to get up and run. [CNP REDACTION] was attempting to push his body off of the ground in an attempt to flee from Detective Holliman and myself. While ordering [CNP REDACTION] to stop resisting, I administered an open hand palm strike to the side of his face. [CNP REDACTION] subsequently placed his hands behind his back and Detective Holliman handcuffed him. 17-4855 6/19/17 22/12/2020 Carter 130 4th Ward Open hand palm strike 22 M B Warrant Arrests, Fraudulent ID, Theft Investigation I was one of the backup units to a traffic stop conducted by Detectives Holliman and Shanas Day light K.

On the June 6, 2018 at approximately 1113 hours, my partner Detective Geyer and I went to the rear of [CNP REDACTION] in order to investigate a weapons and drug complaint received at the location. While at the location, we came into contact with the subject of the complaint [CNP REDACTION]. During the investigation, [CNP REDACTION] walked to an open window on the passenger's side of his vehicle. He refused all requests to step away from the window of the vehicle. My partner and I feared that he was concealing a weapon inside of the vehicle. Additionally, there was the strong smell of burnt and unburnt cannabis emanating from inside of his vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] was acting very erratic. When I asked [CNP REDACTION] to step away from the rolled down passenger's side door. He became agitated and irate. He said that he was about to die and that he "wanted to die." He called 911 and told one of our dispatchers that he was about to die. After [CNP REDACTION] ignored several of my requests to step aside so we can complete our investigation, he began to lean against the passenger's side door within an arm's length of where the described gun was allegedly located. Fearing for my safety and the safety of my assisting unit, I tried to physically move [CNP REDACTION] away from the passenger's side window. [CNP REDACTION] tightened up his body and refused to be removed from the passenger's side door/window. I, along with assisting detectives, attempted to place [CNP REDACTION] in handcuffs. He refused our efforts by tightening up his body, trying to move his hands to the front of his body, and pulling his entire body away from assisting detectives. [CNP REDACTION] screamed, "I'm ready to die now, Ya'll going to have to kill me! During the struggle [CNP REDACTION] was screaming repeatedly, "Kill me bitch, kill motherfucker!" Detective Geyer #244 requested an extra pair of handcuffs so that [CNP REDACTION] could be double handcuffed as to prevent the likelihood of injury. [CNP REDACTION] refused to be handcuffed. I heard Detective Geyer #244 say that he was losing grip of [CNP REDACTION]. Fearing that [CNP REDACTION] was trying to get to the suspected gun, I announced taser up. I request [CNP REDACTION] to comply with our efforts to handcuff him or he would be tased. I observed Detective Geyer losing his grasp of [CNP REDACTION]. I then deployed my taser striking [CNP REDACTION] in the middle of his shirtless back. [CNP REDACTION] fell to the ground and struck his mouth on the concrete parking barrier [EPD REDACTION]. Please refer to Use of Force Report 18-004850(B) for explanation of my second taser deployment on [CNP REDACTION]. In Furtherance of the Use of Force regarding [CNP REDACTION]: While [CNP REDACTION] was on the ground from the first taser deployment, he continued to ignore my requests to stop resisting and to allow us to handcuff him. I requested [CNP REDACTION] numerous times to stop resisting and I cautioned him that I would have to tase him again if he continued to resist. [CNP REDACTION] continued to ignore my requests. I called taser deployment to alert [CNP REDACTION] that he would be tased again if he continued to fight with us. After a moment of watching [CNP REDACTION] flail his arms and body around, I depressed the trigger to my taser. This sent another cycle to the probes that was already in his back. Thus I tased him twice. After the second taser deployment, [CNP REDACTION] was handcuffed and transported to Evanston Hospital for treatment. 18-4850(A&B) 6/6/18 13/12/2020 Carter 130 5th Ward (2) Taser Deployment 40 M B UUW, Agg.

On 03-06-16 I Detective Cherrey #127 approached a vehicle at [CNP REDACTION] which was driven by a [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] was previously failing to stop from Officers Tyson #215 and Yates #143. Yates and I approached the vehicle and I advised [CNP REDACTION] that he was under arrest. We were then able to open the driver side of the door at which time Yates was able to grab a hold of [CNP REDACTION]'s right arm as I gained control of his left arm. We then took [CNP REDACTION] to the ground. After [CNP REDACTION] was on the ground, he immediately placed his hands under his body and began to thrash around. At this point, [CNP REDACTION] was laying on his stomach with his hands tucked under his chest. I instructed [CNP REDACTION] numerous times to put his hands behind his back but he refused. [CNP REDACTION] then attempted to push his body off the ground and was able to lift himself partially off the ground. In response to this, I delivered one knee strike to the left rib area of [CNP REDACTION]. After the knee strick, [CNP REDACTION] was again on his stomach but continued to refuse verbal commands to place his hands behind his back. Due to this continued resistance, I deployed my chemical agent to [CNP REDACTION]'s facial area in two short bursts. Shortly after the chemical agent deployment, [CNP REDACTION] placed his hands behind his back and was taken into custody without further incident.

On 04/24/18 at approximately 2253 hours I Officer Cherrey #127 responded to [CNP REDACTION] to assist Officer Witt with a traffic violation offender. The driver [CNP REDACTION] was told he was under arrest and to put his hands behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] refused verbal commands to do so and began to tense his arms while being placed under arrest. I was physically attempting to gain control of his right arm, however [CNP REDACTION] continued to attempt to pull away from me. Witt was eventually able to handcuff [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm. After doing so, Abdelfattah was taken down face first on a nearby patch of grass. This caused minor injuries to his facial area. He was subsequently treated at [EPD REDACTION] NFI. 18-3382 4/24/18 31/01/2021 Cherrey 127 8th Ward Takedown 35 M I Resisting, Speeding, Fleeing and Eluding, DUI Radio assignment Dark with limited lighting DNA DNA Redacted DNA Mohamed Abdelfattah During takedown redacted 16 0 2 Cherrey; Witt No Traffic Stop - taken down while Handcuffing
On 05/31/18 at approximately 0322 hours I Officer Cherrey #127 responded to [CNP REDACTION] along with Sgt. D. Prieto for a check the well being. The caller reported that he was currently being robbed inside of his apartment. While I was arriving on scene, I observed a male (later identified as [EPD REDACTION]) leaving the apartment complex. I went to conduct a field interview with [EPD REDACTION], and after a brief conversation told him to remove a bag he was wearing. He began to unzip the bag, at which time I told him to stop and not reach inside. At this time I was fearing [CNP REDACTION] may be reaching for a weapon. In response to this, I grabbed a hold of [CNP REDACTION]'s arm at which time he began struggling, tensing his arms and trying to break free from my grasp. Due to [CNP REDACTION]'s actions I conducted a takedown causing him to land on the street face down. [CNP REDACTION] continued to tense his arms and was attempting to bring his arms underneath his body. At one point he broke free of Prieto's grasp with his left arm. I then deployed 2 to 3 short bursts of my department chemical agent to his facial area. After doing so, I was able to handcuff him with Prieto's assistance. It should be noted that during the incident Sgt. Prieto suffered an injury to his knee resulting in him seeking medical treatment.

On 6/1/19 at approximately 0043 hours I, Ofc. D. Pack #234 and my partner Ofc. J. Roden #124 were dispatched to [CNP REDACTION] for a call of a person shot. We arrived on scene with our emergency lights activated and used our squad car’s air horn to assist in dispersing a very large crowd which was gathered on the west side of the street. As we began our search for any potential gunshot victims, we encountered approximately 300 people gathered on the street, with numerous fights actively in progress. I observed [CNP REDACTION] actively engaged in a physical fight with another unknown subject. [CNP REDACTION] had his arms raised and his fists clenched, and was actively striking the unknown subject. There was also a large group of approximately 10 other people in extremely close proximity who also appeared to be engaged in the physical altercation. In order to prevent further injury to the unknown individual and others, I deployed my Taser directly to [CNP REDACTION]'s torso, targeting the large muscle group in his abdomen. During the cycle of the Taser, [CNP REDACTION] was guided to the ground using soft control techniques and placed in handcuffs (double locked and tension checked). Due to the size of the crowd engaged in the fight, the need for immediate intervention to prevent injuries to other individuals and potential escalation of the fight, I was unable to give adequate verbal commands to [CNP REDACTION] prior to deploying my Taser. It should be noted at the conclusion of the incident I discovered both of my Taser cartridges had been deployed while I was engaged with [CNP REDACTION].

On 09/22/2019 at approximately 0345 hours Officer Cherrey *127 and I, Officer Chipolet responded to a call of a disturbance at [CNP REDACTION]. During the course of the investigation, [CNP REDACTION] was handcuffed and taken into custody for a city ordinance violation (possession of an open container of alcohol). [CNP REDACTION] eventually began to resist efforts while being searched and refused to be placed in the back of our squad car. [CNP REDACTION] began to kick the squad car and thrash his arms back in forth(sic) in an attempt to push away from the squad car. Due to [CNP REDACTION]’s actions and behavior, a controlled take down was performed and [CNP REDACTION] was taken to the ground by myself and Officer Cherrey.

[CNP REDACTION] fled a traffic stop in the area of Western and Howard after I located a firearm near his feet and after trying to flee in a vehicle subsequently striking our marked squad car. [CNP REDACTION] then ran east bound on Howard and eventually south bound in the west alley of the 7500 block of Oakley. [CNP REDACTION] began jumping numerous fences and yards in the area. Fellow officers responded to the area and were giving updates of his location. I eventually located [CNP REDACTION] walking from the rear yard at [CNP REDACTION] toward the front entrance gate. I told [CNP REDACTION] to get on the ground, however he failed to do so. In response to this, I pointed my Taser through the front gate and deployed it striking [CNP REDACTION]. Upon deploying the Taser, [CNP REDACTION] immediately went to the ground and was handcuffed by fellow officers.

On -5/04/2020 at approximately 0140 hours I Officer Cherrey #127 responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a report of a domestic disturbance. Officer Niedziela #118 was first on scene. While Officer Chipolet #132 and I were arriving, Niedziela asked for more officers to assist him in the rear stairwell. At that time, I observed Niedziela attempt to do a pat down of a subject [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] refused to comply with verbal commands to put his hands on a nearby wall. [CNP REDACTION] eventually complied momentarily by putting both hands on the wall but immediately removed his right hand moving it towards his waist band and out of my sight. I was able to get a hold of [CNP REDACTION]'s hand, at which time I noticed broken glass on the ground to my right and a woman screaming from somewhere in the vicinity. As I gained control of [CNP REDACTION]'s right arm, he began flexing and kept attempting to move his right arm toward his waist and belt line area. Due to [CNP REDACTION]'s behavior, and fearing he may have a weapon, I attempted to bring [CNP REDACTION]'s right hand behind his back so he could be handcuffed. [CNP REDACTION] continued to attempt to break free from my grasp. [CNP REDACTION] then broke free of my grasp and immediately moved his hand toward his waist and out of my sight. In response to this, I struke [CNP REDACTION] twice in the back/right rib area with a closed fist. After this, I grabbed a hold of [CNP REDACTION]'s right shoulder area and [CNP REDACTION] along with fellow officers and I fell to the ground in the rear exterior entrance of the apartment complex. [CNP REDACTION] would still not comply with my verbal commands to put his hands behind his back and continued to attempt to put his hands underneath him while thrashing about. In response to this behavior, I delivered multiple fist and knee strikes to the rib/back area of [CNP REDACTION]. These strikes only had limited effectiveness, but eventually we were able to get both of [CNP REDACTION]'s hands handcuffed despite him actively resisting/obstructing our efforts.

While on routine patrol I, Officer Chipolet *132 observed a bicycle parked against a blue Chrysler Town and Country [CNP REDACTION] in front of [CNP REDACTION]. Upon further investigation I made contact with [CNP REDACTION] who was sitting in the driver seat of the vehicle. I asked [CNP REDACTION] if the vehicle belonged to him and he stated it did. I then asked [CNP REDACTION] if the bicycle belonged to him and he shrugged and stated it did not. [CNP REDACTION] appeared to be extremely nervous so I asked him to step out of the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] complied and I informed him we was going to be detained in handcuffs while I continued my investigation. [CNP REDACTION] tensed his muscles and attempted to pull away from me. I was able to grab [CNP REDACTION] by his jacket and secure his hands. I informed [CNP REDACTION] that he was under arrest and told him to stop resisting. [CNP REDACTION] continued to try to defeat the arrest by attempting to kick my feet and make me lose my balance. I then was able to grab [CNP REDACTION] by his torso and I performed a controlled takedown to the sidewalk in front of 636 Sherman Avenue. I was able to secure [CNP REDACTION] in handcuffs until backup units arrived. [CNP REDACTION] was asked if he needed any medical treatment and he declined. There were no visible injuries on [CNP REDACTION]. Further investigation revealed [CNP REDACTION] did not have permission from the owner to be in the vehicle. Subsequently the vehicle owner wanted to sign complaints against [CNP REDACTION]. Arrest paperwork for [CNP REDACTION] was completed and turned over to Juvenile Detectives. 19-10853 12/01/19 10/11/2020 Chipolet 132 9th Ward Controlled Takedown 17 M Redacted Criminal Trespass to Vehicle, Resisting Arrest On-view Street Lamps N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A 12 0 1 Chipolet No On-view of suspicious activity - UoF used during resisting arrest
On 8/7/16 at 0325 hrs. Ofc. Robbins and I, Ofc. Conley, responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a disturbance investigation. A refused citizen advised that there was a group of people out front and they were fighting. I attempted to interview [CNP REDACTION] while in front of the above location and [CNP REDACTION] was extremely irate and agitated. I advised [CNP REDACTION] to calm down and advised him that I needed to check his person for weapons. [CNP REDACTION] then began to yell obscenities out loud and refused to stop yelling. Once Ofc. Rosenbaum arrived on scene, I attempted to pat [CNP REDACTION] down again and grabbed his pants to gain control of him. Once I grabbed [CNP REDACTION], he advised that I needed to stop pulling on him and started clenching and unclenching his fist. [CNP REDACTION] then raised his right fist above his head and slammed it into vehicle #48, causing a dent to the front left side of it. At that time, I attempted to take [CNP REDACTION] into custody and grabbed his left arm. [CNP REDACTION] and tensed up and pulled away from me. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s body around the chest area, and performed a control takedown. [CNP REDACTION] was then rolled onto his stomach and had his right side of his face on the ground. [CNP REDACTION] was ordered to place his hands behind his back, but refused to do so and scratched his face during the struggle before being taken into custody.

On 5/22/16 at approximately 0200 hours, Sgt. L. Miller #26 and I, Sgt. Correa #17, responded to [CNP REDACTION] on a report of a large group fighting with a potential subject with a gun inside. Approximately 50-60 subjects had already exited [CNP REDACTION], and were yelling and screaming in the immediate area and street. I observed subjects throwing metal tables and breaking beer bottles. I issued several commands to pedestrians to leave the area when, approximately 15 feet south of the entrance to [CNP REDACTION], a group [CNP REDACTION] began to fight. These subjects did not comply with my verbal commands to disburse, but rather continued fighting. I observed Sgt. Miller deploy his Taser and as his offender fell, a 2nd subject, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], grabbed a metal chair and raised it above his head in a motion to strike someone. Fearing that [CNP REDACTION] was about to cause bodily harm to someone or potentially direct his aggression toward me, I deployed my Taser striking [CNP REDACTION] in the left shoulder and back area. I administered one 5 second cycle causing [CNP REDACTION] to tense up and fall to the ground. [CNP REDACTION] was taken into custody without incident. 16-13493 05/22/16 05/11/2020 Correa 17 1st Ward Taser 20 M B Mob Action Dispatch assignment Dark with street lighting None N/A Redacted N/A Demitrius R.

On 5/26/19 at approximately 0252 hrs. I, Officer B. Hicks #251, was assisting in the search for an offender of a burglary/criminal trespass investigation in [CNP REDACTION]. The alleged burglary/criminal trespass occurred at the construction site at [CNP REDACTION], and two suspects were observed fleeing east from the scene. After one suspect was placed in custody, I was searching for the second suspect in the courtyard of [CNP REDACTION] I had my Taser out and in the ready position when I located the second suspect, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], hiding under a bush inside a small fenced area near the west end of the courtyard. Upon locating [CNP REDACTION], I gave my location over the radio so other officers could assist me with taking [CNP REDACTION] into custody. With my Taser pointed at [CNP REDACTION], I gave several clear commands instructing Hodges not to move and place his hands on the gate, commands which [CNP REDACTION] did not comply with. Instead, [CNP REDACTION] opened the gate and exited the small fenced area. Just as [CNP REDACTION] exited the gate, Officer Cherrey arrived and instructed [CNP REDACTION] to get on the ground. [CNP REDACTION] appeared to comply with Cherrey’s instructions and began to crouch down, and then jumped up and charged toward other officers who responding to my radio call for assistance. Fearful that [CNP REDACTION] might injure assisting officers by running into or fighting with them, I discharged my Taser toward [CNP REDACTION]’s right side/back area, which appeared to have no effect on [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] continued to run past responding officers who gave chase and were eventually able to take [CNP REDACTION] into custody in the alley behind [CNP REDACTION] It should be noted that I reviewed my body worn camera footage prior to writing this report. 19-4247 05/28/19 07/11/2020 Correa 17 4th Ward Taser 28 M B Trespass to Land Dispatched call for service Dark None DNA DNA.

In summary on 3/``/`6, I, (OFC. Curran #237), and Ofc. Pratt #182 were dispatched to [CNP REDACTION] for a report of a fight that might occur. Upon our arrival I observed a large group of high school kids, males and females (approx. 20), standing on the side walk. While on scene [EPD REDACTION] attempted to fight with other kids several times. I was holding onto [EPD REDACTION] and attempting to get her to leave the area when she broke away from me and engaged in a physical altercation, kicking at another girl and striking her with her hands (the girl is unidentified and fled the area). I pulled [EPD REDACTION] away from the physical altercation and she continued to attempt to reengage. After giving [EPD REDACTION] verbal commands to "stop" and she continued to attempt to reengage I performed and empty hand take down, placing her on the ground, and placed handcuffs on her. There was no further incident after placing [EPD REDACTION] into handcuffs.

After getting [CNP REDACTION] into the cell I backed out of the cell and[CNP REDACTION] walked towards me attempting to exit the cell. I verbally instructed [CNP REDACTION] to sit on the bench. I placed my arm up to hold [CNP REDACTION] back so that I could get the cell door closed and made contact with her upper body. After making contact with [CNP REDACTION] she fell backwards onto the ground, using her left hand to brace the fall. [CNP REDACTION] did not complain of any pain or injuries.

On 8/16/19 at 1756 hours I, Ofc. Curran #237, was at the intersection of Howard and Ridge when I observed a physical fight occurring east of Ridge in the street. Upon exiting my squad car I disarmed two subjects that(sic) were holding a baseball bat and a hammer, no one was fighting at this time. I then observed two female subjects fighting with one another. I took hold of the closest subject, [CNP REDACTION], who kept attempting to fight with the other subject. At this time I performed an open hand take down on [CNP REDACTION], forcing her to the ground. [CNP REDACTION] was then cuffed, double locked, placed into my squad car, seatbelted in, and transported to the Evanston Police Department for the battery investigation.

As she stepped towards me she began to swing both of her arms downwards towards my head and shoulders. I grabbed both of [CNP REDACTION]'s wrists as she attempted to hit me, and swiftly took her to the ground with an open hand take down using her momentum across my body. Once on the ground and handcuffed [CNP REDACTION] kicked me in the left leg/buttocks 3-4 times, and attempted to kick me numerous times after that. [CNP REDACTION] was handcuffed, double locked on scene. 16-4173 02/16/16 29/12/2020 Curtin 249 7th Ward Soft, open hand, handcuffing 44 F W battery On-view Day light N/A 15/1459 0 1 Curtin No Unknown - arrestee attacked
On 3/8/16 at approximately 0305 hours I, Officer D. Pack responded to a call of a suspicious person in the rear of [CNP REDACTION]. I subsequently engaged [CNP REDACTION] in the back yard of [CNP REDACTION] as part of an ongoing investigation of said suspicious person call. I encountered [CNP REDACTION], who was concealing himself under the deck area of the above address, who I believed to be a subject who fled from an earlier traffic stop in which a loaded gun was recovered from a stolen vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] was given verbal commands to crawl out from under the deck and [CNP REDACTION] initially followed my instructions. After being physically removed from under the deck by Ofc. Virani, [CNP REDACTION] was ordered to place his hands behind his back which he refused to do. [CNP REDACTION] tensed his arms and thrashed around on the ground kicking his feet in the air. [CNP REDACTION] was advised to stop resisting multiple times, but continued to stiffen up and resist attempts by Ofc. Virani and Ofc. Reza to place him in handcuffs. At this point, believing the subject could be armed, and due to his actively resisting arrest, I placed my Taser against his left buttocks. I informed [CNP REDACTION] if he continued to resist arrest he would be tased. [CNP REDACTION] then slapped the Taser away from his body and attempted to roll over with his arms clenched to his side. I deployed my Taser for one five second burst using a drive-stun technique to the [CNP REDACTION]'s left buttocks. [CNP REDACTION] immediately ceased his attempts to resist arrest and was handcuffed without further incident.

On 8/24/16 at approximately 0300 hours I, Ofc. D. Pack #234 was assigned to assist other units at [CNP REDACTION] #3 during a domestic battery call. While on scene the offender, [CNP REDACTION] refused to comply with lawful commands given by other uniformed Police Officers on scene. [CNP REDACTION] was informed she was under arrest for domestic battery and obstructing a peace officer in the performance of his official duties. Other officers on scene, including Sgt. Bush, Commander Sacluti, Ofc. J. Dietrich, and Ofc. K. Popp attempted to place [CNP REDACTION] under arrest. [CNP REDACTION] was given verbal commands to place her hands behind her back. [CNP REDACTION] refused to comply and other officers on scene attempted to affect the arrest using non-impact control techniques. [CNP REDACTION] resisted the Officers attempts to handcuff her by tensing her arms and legs and taking a wide aggressive stance, preventing the officers from placing her arms behind her back. As other officers attempted to take [CNP REDACTION] to the ground she continued to resist their efforts by shuffling her feet and tensing her leg muscles while stating "you ain't taking me to jail". [CNP REDACTION] was informed if she continued to resist she was going to be tased. As other officers struggled to control [CNP REDACTION]'s arms and safely place her in handcuffs, she began to shuffle towards the dresser in the room. Believing other officers and [CNP REDACTION] might suffer injuries due to the small size of the room, I deployed my Taser for one five second burst using a drive-stun technique to [CNP REDACTION] lower right back area. [CNP REDACTION] immediately ceased her attempts to resist arrest and was handcuffed without further incident.

On 1/19/17 at approximately 0120 hours I, Ofc. D. Pack #234 responded to the north bound Davis street EL Platform for a call of a man with a knife. Dispatch gave a description of a male white wearing blue jeans and a long green jacket waving a large knife at passengers waiting to get onto the train. Upon arrival I observed the subject, later identified [CNP REDACTION] was standing on the platform with his back turned towards me with his body concealed by the long green jacket. [CNP REDACTION] was given verbal commands to show me his hands and get on the ground. [CNP REDACTION] ignored my commands and began bending over reaching towards the black backpack that was at his feet. I kicked the back pack away from him and performed an emergency takedown, guiding him to the ground face down, while giving him verbal commands to put his hands behind his back, which he refused to do. [CNP REDACTION] tensed his arms underneath his body and ignored several more verbal commands to stop resisting and place his hands behind his back. At this point, believing the subject to be armed with a knife, and due to him actively resisting arrest, I placed my Taser against his back and informed [CNP REDACTION] if he continued to resist arrest he would be tased. [CNP REDACTION] continued to clench his arms under his body preventing assisting officers from placing him in handcuffs. I deployed my Taser for one five second burst aiming for the preferred target area of the large muscle group of his back and deployed the taser for a second five second burst using the drive stun technique. [CNP REDACTION] immediately ceased his attempt to resist arrest and was handcuffed without further incident. It should be noted that a subsequent search of the subject revealed a black pocket knife which was recovered from his left pants pocket. 17-593 1/19/17 02/11/2020 D.Pack 234 1st Ward Taser Deployment 53 M W Resisting Arrest Radio Assignment, On-View Dark but on Lighted Platform None left empty left empty left empty None left empty left empty 0 1 D.Pack No Report of man with knife - Arrestee unarmed before and at time of UoF
On 3/3/17 at approximately 2354 hours I, Ofc. D. Pack #234 responded to the north bound Davis street Metra Platform for a call of a person on the tracks. Dispatch stated a caller reported a man was laying down on the tracks possibly attempting to commit suicide. Upon arrival I observed [CNP REDACTION] standing on the north bound tracks as a Metra train approached the platform. [CNP REDACTION] was given verbal commands to exit the tracks. [CNP REDACTION] ignored my commands and continued walking toward the train. As the train pulled into the platform, and while it was still in motion, [CNP REDACTION] again ignored my commands to exit the tracks, and began to flee towards the front of the train. At this point, believing the subject was indeed attempting to harm himself, and not knowing if he possessed other means of doing so, I deployed my Taser for one five second burst from approximately 20 feet away with the target being [CNP REDACTION]'s back. The Taser deployment was unsuccessful due to excessive separation of the prongs based on the distance the Taser was deployed from. However, one of the prongs did stick into the loose end of the shirt [CNP REDACTION] was wearing, and [CNP REDACTION] immediately stopped running. I was then able to catch up to [CNP REDACTION] and grab his arm to guide him off of the tracks and onto the platform. After relocating [CNP REDACTION] to the platform I immediately placed him into handcuffs (double locked and checked for proper tension) and conducted a pat down for weapons. As I patted [CNP REDACTION] down he tensed his arms and attempted to grab my left hand as I held his hands behind his back during the pat down. I then guided [CNP REDACTION] to the ground where he began to roll around tensing his body. The pat down was subsequently completed while I held [CNP REDACTION] on the ground. No weapons or contraband were located on [CNP REDACTION]'s person. It should be noted that after completing the pat down I observed [EPD REDACTION] which were sustained while he was rolling around on the ground during the pat down.

On 7/18/17 at approximately 0505 hours I, Ofc. D. Pack #234 responded to [CNP REDACTION] for an involuntary committal call. Dispatch informed me a subject barricaded himself in a restroom and was acting violent towards his mother. While speaking with the subject, Ofc. Nelson #233 was able to open the restroom door and the subject exited the restroom and immediately pushed officer Nelson. I attempted to gain physical control of [CNP REDACTION]'s arms to restrain him so paramedics could safely transport him to the hospital. [CNP REDACTION] repeatedly stated "fuck you you racist pigs" and began swinging his arms and kicking his legs to prevent Ofc. Nelson and I from restraining him. [CNP REDACTION] then clenched his right fist and swung it at me making contact with the left side of my face two times. Ofc. Nelson and I repeatedly told [CNP REDACTION] to stop fighting with us and place his hands behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] ignored our commands and began to kick at me. Fearing receiving further battery, and to effectively detain [CNP REDACTION] for a committal, I deployed my taser directly to [CNP REDACTION]'s torso for one 5 second burst, targeting the large muscle group in his abdomen. During the 5 second cycle of the taser, Ofc. Nelson and I were able to control [CNP REDACTION]'s arms and place handcuffs on him.

On 7/29/17 at approximately 2342 hours I, Ofc. D. Pack #234 responded to [CNP REDACTION] for an unwanted subject/city ordinance violation. I made my way up to the platform where I attempted to make contact with the subject later identified as [CNP REDACTION]. I asked [CNP REDACTION] to come speak with me but he refused and waked away from me. I caught up with [CNP REDACTION] at which point he turned around and stated, "I'm gonna fucking shoot you, don't run up on me, I'll fucking kill you". I informed [CNP REDACTION] he was under arrest for urinating in the elevator and instructed him to put his hands behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] refused and I attempted to take control of his arm so I could place him into handcuffs. [CNP REDACTION] attempted to pull away from me and I guided him up against the wall of the platform where I eventually placed him into handcuffs. Officer S. Brown #142 arrived on scene and assisted me in conducting a search of [CNP REDACTION]'s person for weapons or contraband. While we were searching Graham, he gathered saliva into his mouth and spit into the face of Officer Brown. The search was completed and [CNP REDACTION] was escorted off the platform to my squad care for transport to the Evanston Police Station. While walking [CNP REDACTION] into the squad car he began fighting with us again and kicked at Officer Brown several times while gathering saliva in his mouth again. In order to further battery to officers, and safely place him into my Police vehicle a takedown was conducted. I also utilized an open hand strike to [CNP REDACTION]'s face, to prevent him from spitting on Officers again. [CNP REDACTION] immediately became compliant and was subsequently placed into handcuffs for transport to EPD.

On 06/01/2019 at approximaltey(sic) 0040 hours I responded to a large disturbance at [CNP REDACTION] including a person that may be shot. While clearing the area I approached a group including [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] was yelling at other people in the area and appeared to be attempting to start a fight. As I approached he was being held back near a wall by an unknown female. I ordered the group to disperse at which time [CNP REDACTION] turned toward me and stared me in the face. Unidentified people grabbed a hold of [CNP REDACTION] as he clenched his fists while still staring at me. He then attempted to walk toward me while still having his fists clenched. Unidentified people were still attempting to hold him back. At one point, [CNP REDACTION] moved around one of the subject holding him back and again attempted to engage me. In response to the large group in my vicinity, and fearing that [CNP REDACTION] would break free of the group and batter me, I deployed my department issued chemical agent toward the face of [CNP REDACTION]. In doing so, multiple people were affected and fled the area with [CNP REDACTION]. One subject (Unknown male black) did not flee the area and turned in my direction. He then stepped toward me, causing me to believe that he was going to physically engage me. In response to his actions, I sprayed another short burst of chemical agent toward his facial area. After doing so, the subject fled the area northbound. [CNP REDACTION] was located by fellow officers a short time later and taken into custody.

In summary: On 11/21/19 at approximately 0105 hrs. I, Officer Hicks #251, was dispatched to a disturbance at [CNP REDACTION] The caller told dispatch her husband was attempting to break down the door to her apartment [CNP REDACTION]. Upon arrival, Officers Pack, Romera, Hindes and I arrived in the fourth floor hallway simultaneously and observed a subject, later identified as [CNP REDACTION] outside the door of [CNP REDACTION] yelling and banging on the door. When Officer Pack instructed [CNP REDACTION] to show his hands, [CNP REDACTION] said, “Let you see my hands?” [CNP REDACTION] continued to aggressively bang on the door with his hands and feet. Pack grabbed [CNP REDACTION] in an attempt to gain compliance, but [CNP REDACTION] resisted. Officer Romero then grabbed [CNP REDACTION] and Pack Romero and [CNP REDACTION] fell to the ground. [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist and refused to be handcuffed. [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist and refused to be handcuffed. [CNP REDACTION] had a puffy winter coat on and it appeared as if he was attempting to put his hands in his pockets. I deployed my Taser to assist Pack, Romero, and Hindes in gaining control of [CNP REDACTION]'s wrists. The Taser prongs struck [CNP REDACTION] in the right arm, and although he seemed to be affected at first, he continued to fight. Due to the thickness of [CNP REDACTION]'s coat, and the fact that his coat kept being pulled due to his resisting, one of the Taser prongs came out and I observed it on the floor. [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist and attempt(sic) to go in his jacket pockets. I deployed another Taser cartridge into [CNP REDACTION]'s back. [CNP REDACTION] was still not compliant so I activated my Taser a third and fourth time, both times appeared ineffective possibly due to the prongs continuously being extracted by the movement of [CNP REDACTION]'s coat against his body. After the final Taser deployment, officers were able to gain control of [CNP REDACTION] and place him in handcuffs. 19-10572 11/21/19 01/11/2020 D.Pack 234 4th Ward Taser 30 M B left empty Radio dispatch Indoors, lighted None N/A Evanston Hospital, ER Dr. Gowar N/A Erick M.

In summary: On 1/1/20 at approximately 0400 hrs. I, Officer Pack #234, was dispatched to a disturbance at [CNP REDACTION] The caller told dispatch there were multiple gunshots and several groups fighting in the street. Upon arrival, I observed multiple female subjects actively fighting in the street. I broke up the fight and was attempting to disperse the subjects when [CNP REDACTION] attempted to run past me with his fist balled in the air. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION] in an attempt to prevent him from striking an unknown female subject. Due to the close proximity and rapidly evolving nature of the situation I was unable to give adequate verbal commands. [CNP REDACTION] then pulled away from me, balled up his fists and ran directly into me, while swinging his arms. I then grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s arm in an attempt to take him to the ground and place him in handcuffs. [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist and was still actviely resisting. Subsequently, I used a closed fist and delivered several stunning blows to the large muscle group of [EPD REDACTION] right side while giving commands for him to put his hands behind his back. I was eventually able to gain control of [CNP REDACTION]'s arms and placed him in handcuffs.

On 11/27/16 at approximately 19:12 hours, I, Officer N. Demos #238 along with Officer N. Griffith #193 responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a report of a [EPD REDACTION]. While speaking with [EPD REDACTION], [EPD REDACTION] became increasingly agitated and when [EPD REDACTION] attempted to explain that he felt it was in [EPD REDACTION] best interest to be transported to the Hospital, [EPD REDACTION] ran and was attempting to gain access to her residence. [EPD REDACTION] attempted to restrain [EPD REDACTION] while she attempted to pull away, punched her father and repeated called him a "nigger." When I attempted to assist [EPD REDACTION], [EPD REDACTION] kicked me in the groin. [EPD REDACTION] continued to struggle with [EPD REDACTION] and I was kicked in the groin two more times. It was apparent that [EPD REDACTION] was not capable of restraining his Daughter and what he was doing was ineffective, impeding us from restraining his Daughter and his actions were jeopardizing our safety. I directed [EPD REDACTION] to step aside. When [EPD REDACTION] released [EPD REDACTION] both Officer Griffith and I gave clear verbal commands to stop fighting and quit resisting. When [EPD REDACTION] refused to comply with our verbal direction, using a controlled takedown., Officer Griffith and I were able to place [EPD REDACTION] on the grass, in a seated position and in restraints. After the [EPD REDACTION] arrived on the scene, Officer Griffith and I were leading [EPD REDACTION] to the ambulance when she again became combative and intentionally threw her head back, "head-butting" Officer Griffith in the mouth. Using another controlled takedown, [EPD REDACTION] was again put in a seated position. [EPD REDACTION] was placed on the gurney and transported without further incident. At all times during the incident, the minimal force necessary to control the combative subject and prevent further Officer injury was used.

On 041216 @ approx. 0925Hrs I, Ofc E. Gonzalez #172 responded to [CNP REDACTION], as an assist unit for a Check Well Being/Involuntary Committal. While dealing with subject, [EPD REDACTION], Ofc. Jacobs #248 attempted to explain why we were there when [EPD REDACTION] became irate and started yelling. After refusing to willingly go to the hospital for treatment, [EPD REDACTION] demanded to retrieve his own coat. Ofc. Jacbos offered to get [EPD REDACTION] coat when [EPD REDACTION] stated, "I'll get my fuckn' coat." [EPD REDACTION] then pushed Ofc. Jacobs about the chest area. I then attempted to grab Johnson from behind when we all (myself, [redacted} & Ofc. Jacobs) fell onto the bed. We then rolled onto the floor with [EPD REDACTION] landing on top of me. As I held onto Johnson, Ofc. Jacobs continued to give verbal commands and warned Johnson that he would be tased if he refused to comply. [EPD REDACTION] continued to struggle to free himself when Ofc. Jacobs tased him. He subsequently complied and I then secured him in handcuffs for his safety as well as ours. He was later treated by Evanston Fire/paramedics. See Ofc. Jacobs' Field general for further information. 16-9294 04/12/16 06/12/2020 E.

In summary but not verbatim: On 04-19-2016 at approximately 13:54hr I Officer Gonzalez#114 was dispatched to back up Officer Jacobs#248 beat 274 on a premise check at [CNP REDACTION]. A refused citizen reported the house is vacant and garage door is partially open. Upon arrival officer Jacobs#248 and I Officer G.Gonzalez#114 made contact with the offender [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION]. Officer Jacobs advised [CNP REDACTION] he was under arrest for Criminal Trespass and at this time he stated "This is not going to workout well for you guys." [CNP REDACTION] now placed his right hand into his waistband of his pants and produced a black semi-automatic firearm with the muzzle facing at my direction. Officer Jacobs unholstered his taser and deployed it striking [CNP REDACTION] on his upper chest but had minimal effectiveness. [CNP REDACTION] raised his weapon with the muzzle pointed directly at Officer Jacobs who was in the open and exposed. I believed the offender's aggressive actions can cause death or great bodily harm to Officer Jacobs. As a result of [CNP REDACTION]'s actions I discharged two (2) rounds at him. 16-10098 05/04/16 23/12/2020 G.

In this, arrestee pulls gun first.
On state date and time I (Glew) was in a foot pursuit of a suspect, [CNP REDACTION]. During this foot pursuit I knew that [CNP REDACTION] had pulled a gun on two officers, pulling a gun on an officer is a felony aggravated assault. [CNP REDACTION] fled west bound through the yard of [CNP REDACTION]. I was a behind [CNP REDACTION] and was in the yard north of [CNP REDACTION]. I was running at an angle to intercept his direction of flight or be ready if he changed direction towards me. There was a short chain link fence that separated the yard he was running through from the yard I was running through. During the pursuit I gave several verbal commands to "Stop" and ordered [CNP REDACTION] to "Show his hands". My observation of [CNP REDACTION] as he ran was that he was not running freely and naturally. His right side which I had a good view of was moving more natural than his left side. I could see his right hand and arm. His right hand and arm were moving consistent with running. His left side, arm, and hand were not moving freely, consistent with running. It appeared that he was holding his arm and hand close to his body like he was holding something in his hand. I continued to observe this behavior. I then observed once or twice for a very short time that he was holding a dark colored object in his left hand, its appearance was consistent with him holding a handgun in his left hand. [CNP REDACTION] being armed with a handgun in his left hand placed me in fear of death or great bodily harm as I pursued him. Based on my training and experience I knew if [CNP REDACTION] had made the decision to turn and fire his weapon at me I would not be able to react fast enough to thwart his deadly attack. [CNP REDACTION] would hav ebeen able to potentially fire multiple rounds before I could take any action to protect or defend myself. I had the same fear for other pursuing officers. [CNP REDACTION] was running armed in a populated neighborhood. There was a grade school, a preschool and a synagogue nearby. [CNP REDACTION] was attempting to escape while armed with a handgun after it was discuvered he was committing a burglary and he pulled a gun on two officers upon this discovery. I reasonably believed that [CNP REDACTION] was an immediate threat to cause death of great bodily harm to myself, the other officers, and citizens in the area. Based on the totality of the circumstances I reasonably believed that deadly force was justified to stop [CNP REDACTION] and the danger to myself, the other officers, and citizens. I then stopped running. My duty weapon was unholstered. I fired two shots from my duty weapon at [CNP REDACTION] to stop the threat. As I fired the two shots [CNP REDACTION] continued fleeing west bound and I lost sight of him as he went behind the north side of the garage at [CNP REDACTION]. I did not fire any more shots after I lost sight of him. I learned later that [CNP REDACTION] dropped the gun (please see the evidence technition report for information on the gun) a very short distance from where he was when I shot at him. [CNP REDACTION] was taken into custody a short time and distance later. [CNP REDACTION] was not struck by my rounds and was uninjured. 16-10098 5/11/16 29/12/2020 Glew 963 4th Ward Duty Weapon 25 M W Burglary, aggravated assault, and resisting Responding to officer involved shooting Daylight DNA left empty left empty left empty DNA left empty left empty 911 0 3 Glew; "Officers" No Burglary - assisting in chase
On 03/27/16 at approximately 2036 hrs, I (Officer A. Golubski #240) arrived at [CNP REDACTION] regarding a domestic disturbance. Officer Basner #135, the primary responding Officer, had determined that [CNP REDACTION] had committed a domestic assault against his wife, [CNP REDACTION], that had occurred in the garden apartment earlier on 03/27/16. Officer Basner and I made contact with [CNP REDACTION] in the open doorway of the first floor apartment. Officer Basner told [CNP REDACTION] he was under arrest. [CNP REDACTION] then started to step backwards, back into the apartment. Both Officer Basner and I grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s arms and pulled him towards us away from the apartment. Officer Basner grabbed his right arm. I grabbed his left arm. We attempted to maneuver [CNP REDACTION]'s arms behind his back in order to place him in handcuffs. He resisted by tightening his arms in front of him and moving his body away from Officers. Both Officer Basner and I told Catuy to stop resisting several times. It became clear that Officer Basner and I would not be able to physically control [CNP REDACTION] without assistance. I requested additional Officers respond. Officer M. Mangas #194 arrived shortly after and assisted in attempting to arrest [CNP REDACTION] . Officer Mangas grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm. I let go of [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm and repositioned myself to a standing position in front of [CNP REDACTION] . Officer Mangas also told [CNP REDACTION] to stop resisting. I determined [CNP REDACTION] had to be controlled and removed from the scene as quickly as possible. I removed my taser from my holster and pointed it at [CNP REDACTION] while facing him. I yelled, "Taser, Taser, Taser." I observed [CNP REDACTION] continue to resist Officer Basner and Officer Mangas. He appeared to still be tightening his arms in front of him and attempting to pull away from Officer Basner and Officer Mangas. I deployed my taser. The probes struck [CNP REDACTION] in the chest. Officer Basner and Mangas were then able to handcuff [CNP REDACTION] and remove him from the scene. 16-7833 illegible 21/01/2021 Golubski 240 5th Ward Taser 31 M B Domestic Assault Assist Domestic Assault Arrest Indoor Lighting None N/A Redacted N/A Reynaldo Catuy (visible but refused treatment) Taser activitation Redacted 25 0 3 Golubski; Basner; Mangas No wife's name not redacted Alleged Domestic Assault Arrest
We asked [EPD REDACTION] several times to go with EMS to St Francis for a mental evaluation and [EPD REDACTION] refused to go with EMS. I placed my hands on her upper left arm in a control manner. [EPD REDACTION] attempted to pull away and Ofc K Champion grabbed her right arm with an open hand control. [EPD REDACTION] then lunged forward and bit Sgt C Brown on the right forearm. We than took [EPD REDACTION] down to the ground to control and handcuff her. We continued to give [EPD REDACTION] commands to put her hands behind her back and she continued to resist and tense up. We were finally able to secure and get [EPD REDACTION] handcuffed while on the ground. We walked [EPD REDACTION] down the narrow back stairwells. Dean didn't appear to have any injuries.

In summary, but not verbatim, at the listed time I, Officer Gregory, *137, was on patrol in the area of the 600 block of Mulford, traveling W/B. Upon approaching Custer, I observed a F/W, later identified as [EPD REDACTION], screaming and trying to free her two leashed dogs from an unleashed dog that was attacking them. Upon seeing this, my partner, Officer de Leon *165 and I immediately exited our unmarked police squad, #97, to assist [EPD REDACTION]. Upon exiting, we observed a black dog actively biting and attacking [EPD REDACTION]’s two dogs. At that time, I deployed my Taser to neutralize that attacking black dog. I fired a Taser cartridge at the attacking dog, striking the dog in the back with the prongs. The Taser arced for a single cycle, at which time the attacking dog released [EPD REDACTION]’s dog. The attacking dog then withdrew and ran north and west away from the area. Upon checking with [EPD REDACTION], I observed my second Taser cartridge was deployed, and one prong was embedded in the back of [EPD REDACTION]’s dog. The dog did not appear to be suffering any ill effects. 19-1881 03/13/19 11/12/2020 Gregory 137 8th Ward Taser Deployment 30 N/A H Dog off leash Unleashed dog attacking leashed dog on view Daytime None N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A 962/1357 5 2 Gregory; de.Leon No Fighting dogs - UoF used on unleashed attacking dog, which subsequently ran away

[CNP REDACTION] was then seated on the ground and her hands were physically placed behind her back. I, Ofc Griffith placed Headley in handcuffs (double-locked, and fitted for tightness).

On 11/27/16, at approximately 1912 hours, Officer Demos*238 and I, Officer Griffith*193 responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a Disturbance. Upon arrival officers made contact with a combative [EPD REDACTION] later identified as [EPD REDACTION]. [EPD REDACTION] was very irate and began to throw closed fist punches at [EPD REDACTION] and responding officers. Hall was given clear and verbal commands to stop fighting. [EPD REDACTION] then kicked responding officers several times. In order to gain control, a controlled takedown maneuver was conducted in the grass of the apartment building courtyard by Officer Demos, and I. During the takedown [EPD REDACTION] was placed in a seated position with her bottom flat on the ground. I then handcuffed [EPD REDACTION] behind her back and the cuffs were fitted for tightness. EFD arrived on scene as [EPD REDACTION] was being escorted to the street. [EPD REDACTION] began to kick and responding officers made an attempt to control her legs to prevent and[sic] injuries. [EPD REDACTION] leaned forward, then quickly backwards intentionally struck me in the mouth using the back of her head. Another controlled takedown was conducted to prevent any further injuries to responding officers. During the takedown [EPD REDACTION] was placed in a seated position with her bottom flat on the ground. [EPD REDACTION] was then placed on an ambulance stretcher with the assistance of EFD. Sgt. Sophier was notified on scene about my injury. I was treated at Evanston Hospital for a lip laceration, and teeth pain.

In summary: On 10/5/19 at approximately 0520 hrs. I, Officer Hicks #251, was dispatched to a battery in progress in front of [CNP REDACTION]. Dispatched(sic) advised a M/W subject was striking a F/W subject with a belt. While I was en-route, dispatch further advised that the male offender was now walking east in the alley. On arrival, I observed two subjects known to me from previous interactions as [CNP REDACTION] and [EPD REDACTION] standing in front of 1709 Benson. [CNP REDACTION] was visibly intoxicated and bleeding heavily from several lacerations on her hands. As I exited my vehicle, both [CNP REDACTION] and [EPD REDACTION] started yelling “He went that way”, pointing east in the alley. I advised them the next officer would search for the alledged offender but I needed to speak with them first. As soon as I began speaking with [CNP REDACTION] and [EPD REDACTION], [EPD REDACTION] came walking toward us from the alley. [CNP REDACTION] and [EPD REDACTION] both advised me [EPD REDACTION] was the one who was involved in the fight with [CNP REDACTION] and was armed with a knife. Assuming [EPD REDACTION] had a knife, I pulled my taser and ordered [EPD REDACTION] to, “Put your hands on the wall”, the wall being the north side of Second Baptist Church (1717 Benson). As Officer Mangas was conducting a pat down of [EPD REDACTION], he told Mangas and I that it was [CNP REDACTION] who actually possessed two knives. At that moment [CNP REDACTION], who was standing approximately 30 feet away, ran up to [EPD REDACTION] (who was still being patted down) and began striking him on the back. Beliving(sic) [CNP REDACTION] had a knife, and fearing for the safety of [EPD REDACTION], Mangas and I; I tased [CNP REDACTION] once from approximately four feet away, the probes hitting [CNP REDACTION] on her back. A knife was later recovered from the ground near where [CNP REDACTION] was tased, and a box-cutter was recovered from her left front pants pocket. 19-9113 10/27/19 03/01/2021 Griffith 193 8th Ward Handcuffing 34 F B Retail Theft Assist unit on a Retail Theft Light None N/A Evanston Hospital, ER Dr. Doucette N/A Melissa Mackey Battered prior to police arrival, taser deployment N/A 12 22 2 Hicks; Mangas No Report of disturbance - UoF due to arrestee hitting another person
On 11/7/18 at approximately 0103 hours, my partner, Officer Masucci *136 and I, Officer Gustafson *120, responded to [CNP REDACTION] for a report of a man with a knife. Upon arrival, Officers Witt *147, Masucci, and I made contact with an unknown subject, later identified as [EPD REDACTION], who was in [CNP REDACTION] and was holding a silver colored knife in his right hand. [EPD REDACTION] appeared agitated as he was shouting about the [CNP REDACTION] staff members attempting to force him to go to the hospital. When contact was made with [EPD REDACTION], I gave multiple verbal commands to drop the knife. [EPD REDACTION] replied "I ain't putting this knife down." I once again ordered [EPD REDACTION] to drop the knife otherwise he would be tased. [EPD REDACTION] replied with "Oh really? I've been tased beore! Watch what happens. Tase me. Go on!" [EPD REDACTION] then struck the dresser to his right with the knife and shouted "Tase me mother fucker!" [EPD REDACTION] then crouched down in an aggressive manner with his left fist clenched and the knife in his right hand facing our direction. Due to [EPD REDACTION]'s level of agitation, repeated refusal to drop the knife, aggressive statements, and combative posture, I reasonably believed [EPD REDACTION] had the capability and intion of using the knife in his hand against myself and other Officers in the room. In order to prevent [EPD REDACTION] from causing any harm to himself, other officers, or myself, I deployed my taser which successfully struck [EPD REDACTION] in his chest and stomach area. [EPD REDACTION] subsequently fell to the ground in a backwards motion ultimately landing on his front side. Officers were able to successfully place [EPD REDACTION] in handcuffs without any further use of force.

On 4/28/2019 at approximately 1911 hours, my partner, Officer Gustafson *120, and I, Officer Kane *209, made contact with [CNP REDACTION], during an investigative traffic stop at [CNP REDACTION]. LEADS confirmed a valid and extraditable warrant for [CNP REDACTION]. Upon attempting to take [CNP REDACTION] into custody, he quickly backed away from Officer Gustafson and I, and while doing so, raised both of his hands in the air, which he was halding an aluminum can of beans at the time in his right hand, in an aggressive manner, placing me in reasonable fear of being struck by [CNP REDACTION]. I, Officer Kane, performed a closed fist strike using my right hand subsequently connecting with [CNP REDACTION]'s right forehead area causing a laceration to his right eyebrow. I immediately called for medical assistance and Evanston Fire Department personnel arrived on scene and [CNP REDACTION] was transported to St. Francis Hospital where he was treated. Nothing further at this time. 19-3356 04/28/19 15/01/2021 Gustafson 120 8th Ward left empty 43 M B Aggravated Assault to Police Officer, Driving while Suspended, Warrants Traffic Stop Lighted Carl Gustafson *120, Kane *209 During Use of Force take down, during Use of Force closed fist strike St. Francis Emergency Room by Dr. Iglesias Redacted Keith D.

In summary on 01/10/2017 at approximately 1545 hours Officer Schienbein # and I, Officer Harvey #133 were assisting Officer Keeler #148 with an intoxicated subject, now identified as [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION], in front of [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] was being placed in handcuffs by Officer Keeler when I arrived on scene. I assisted Officer Keeler with handcuffing [CNP REDACTION] and conducted a search due to Officer Keeler not having a caged squad car and me being the transporting squad car. While searching [CNP REDACTION] I detected a strong alcoholic beverage coming from his breath and observed that [CNP REDACTION] was having difficult maintaining balance on his own. I then grasped [CNP REDACTION] by his right arm and gave [CNP REDACTION] verbal direction to head toward my squad car. [CNP REDACTION] then began to resist by pulling his right arm away from my grasp. I then used level 2 non-impact control techniques by me grasping the right arm of [CNP REDACTION] with my left hand and placing my right hand on [CNP REDACTION]'s upper right shoulder while Officer Keeler grasped [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm and assisted him to my squad car. Upon opening the rear door to my squad car [CNP REDACTION] again resisted by pushing back against us refusing to enter the vehicle. I once again gave [CNP REDACTION] verbal commands to get into the squad care while using soft empty hand controls by using my left hand to hold [CNP REDACTION]'s shoulder and place my left forearm across the top of his back to prevent [CNP REDACTION] from falling backwards and to keep [CNP REDACTION] from breaking my grasp. At this point [CNP REDACTION] lunged forward into the squad car head first. Officer Keeler and I assisted [CNP REDACTION] with sitting up, he was secured with a seatbelt, and transported to Evanston Police Department without further incident. While seatbelting [CNP REDACTION] I did not notice any injury to him. While I removed [CNP REDACTION] from my squad car I noticed a small pool of blood on the seat and a [EPD REDACTION] Evanston Fire Department was contacted and Ortiz was transported to [EPD REDACTION] without incident. It is likely that Ortiz sustained the [EPD REDACTION] from the receiver of the seat belt buckle which protrudes from the plastic seating. 17-302 1/10/17 31/12/2020 Harvey 133 3rd Ward Nonimpact Control Techniques 55 M W Pedestrian under the influence of alcohol Possession of open alcohol Assignment Daylight DNA left empty Redacted left empty Hector N.

[CNP REDACTION] jumped over the fence at [CNP REDACTION] in an effort to elude us. I shouted "stop, Police" and pursued Retreage on foot. I ran out of the alley eastbound onto Lemar and observed [CNP REDACTION] running eastbound from the backyard of the fence he jumped over as well. Due to [CNP REDACTION] disobeying my commands to stop while stating my position as a Police Officer along with the possibility of [CNP REDACTION] having a firearm, I had to physically tackle [CNP REDACTION] to the ground. While on the ground I landed on top of [CNP REDACTION] and controlled his arms by bringing them around his back and preventing him from reaching for any type of weapon he may have had on him or to restrain him from any further resistance.

In summary Officer Burgers #227 and I, Officer Harvey #133 transported [CNP REDACTION] from EPD to Skokie courthouse to be transferred over to Cook County Sherrifs for bond court. During the transfer [CNP REDACTION] stated to the Shariff that his write wrist was bleeding. I observed a minor scratch on his right wrist with a very minor amount of dry blood on the scratch. A body sheet was completed and turned over to Cook County Sheriff personnel. [CNP REDACTION] was accepted by CCSP and he refused medical attention stating that he was fine to go to court. It should be noted that once we arrived at Skokie Courthouse and were awaiting the Sheriff transportation bus, Mason was continuously moving around and shifting. At one point I had to get out of my squad car and open the rear door to find out why he was constantly moving around. [CNP REDACTION] stated he was just trying to put his hood on. I noticed that [CNP REDACTION] had disconnected his seatbelt as well. [CNP REDACTION] may have sustained this minor scrape due to his constant moving while being handcuffed. Proper handcuff technique was used prior to transport (double locked, checked for tension by being able to insert my index finger between [CNP REDACTION]'s wrist and the handcuff. At no point did [CNP REDACTION] make a statement to Officer Burgers or myself that the handcuffs were too tight or that he was having discomfort in his wrist due to the handcuffs. The initial handcuffing along with transport was all captured on my personal body camera along with the squad car body camera. [CNP REDACTION] was turned over to CCSP without any further incident. 18-10493 11/20/18 19/11/2020 Harvey 133 Skokie Handcuffing 29 M B Public Indecency Assignment/Prisoner Transport Dusk DNA left empty Medical treatment refused and documented of the refusal left empty Anton T.

On 2-23-18 at approx. 1430 hours, suspect [CNP REDACTION], resisted arrest for Strong Arm Robbery (later changed to Theft) in front of [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] ignored repeated verbal commands to stop running. [CNP REDACTION] also ignored repeated verbal commands to put his hands behind his back and resisted arrest. Due to the fact that I, Ofc. Henderson *110, was alone and smaller in stature than [CNP REDACTION], I struck [CNP REDACTION] in the face one time, with a closed fist, in order to gain compliance to effect an arrest. There were no visible injuries to [CNP REDACTION]'s face and he refused medical attention. See Field General for further details.

On 07/28/2019 at approximately 0242 hours, I, Officer Herrera *195 was dispatched to [CNP REDACTION] to process the scene for a criminal damage to property report. Upon arrival I spoke with Officer Pack *234 who stated that he was advised by complainant, [EPD REDACTION], that the offenders were still on scene. [EPD REDACTION] advised that the offenders forced the front door to the CTA station and were now on the third rail car to the south bound train. Officer Pack *234 and I walked up to the platform where [EPD REDACTION] pointed out the two offenders. I made contact with [CNP REDACTION] and took him into custody for criminal damage to property. The handcuffs were double locked and checked for fit. I walked Watson out of the rail car and onto the platform. Officer Hicks *251 arrived and searched [CNP REDACTION]. I went back onto the train to retrieve their belongings. When I returned, I observed [CNP REDACTION] attempting to use his cellphone while in handcuffs and Officers Pack *234 and Hicks *251 were trying to take the cellphone out of his hands. [CNP REDACTION] tightened his grip on his cellphone and tensed his arms up. I put their belongings on the ground and attempted to take the cellphone out of [CNP REDACTION]'s hands. Officer Pack *234 was able to successfully take the phone out of [CNP REDACTION]'s hand. Officer Pack *234 and Hicks *251 walked [CNP REDACTION] to Officer Pack’s squad car. [CNP REDACTION] did not complain of wrist pain/injury while on scene at the CTA and did not request medical attention. The incident was captured on my body worn camera and was reviewed prior to writing this report.

On 4/16/16 at approximately 2225 hrs. I, Detective B. Hicks #251, during an arrest for battery to police officer, pulled the suspect back toward me at which point she fell. The suspect, [CNP REDACTION], while in handcuffs, and under arrest, tried to abruptly return to her vehicle which contained her boyfriend, [CNP REDACTION], and her two small children. Viewing this as an officer safety issue, I pulled [CNP REDACTION] back to me. [CNP REDACTION] resisted and tried to break free from my grip, causing me to pull harder. [CNP REDACTION] tripped over her own feet and fell onto the front of my squad car. [CNP REDACTION] got back up apparently uninjured. 16-8778 04/12/16 28/01/2021 Hicks 251 8th Ward Empty hand control technique 21 F B Battery to PO, obstructing identification, traffic On-view Outdoors, dark (lighted street) DNA DNA DNA DNA DNA DNA No injuries 17 0 2 Hicks; "Officer" No Alleged Battery to Officer
On 5/26/19 at approximately 0252 hours, I, OFC Niedziela *118, was assisting in the search for an offender of a criminal trespass/commercial burglary investigation to a construction site located at [CNP REDACTION]. My partner, OFC Triggs, and I, were in out marked patrol vehicle driving in the area of [CNP REDACTION] attempting to locate the outstanding suspect when OFC Hicks notified units in the area via radio transmission he located the subject in the courtyard of [CNP REDACTION]. As my partner and I pulled up to the location I exited our patrol vehicle and observed the suspect, [CNP REDACTION] leeing east bound from the courtyard of [CNP REDACTION]. I gave chase behind [CNP REDACTION] as he fled east bound on [CNP REDACTION]. with OFC Servatius ahead of me. I deployed my taser (2) times at [CNP REDACTION] in the [CNP REDACTION]. as he fled east bound. It did not appear that either of my taser deployments struck [CNP REDACTION] as he continued to flee in the east alley of [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] tripped over his own feet as he ran and was placed into custody at [CNP REDACTION] by OFC Servatius as I assisted him. I was able to locate both of my deployed taser wires in the alley where [CNP REDACTION] was arrested but I only located (1) of the two prongs. OFC Kozlowski collected by(sic) spent taser wires and cartridges. It should be noted I reviewed my body worn camera footage prior to this report but did not review my body warn(sic) camera footage prior to my supplemental report.

On 10/05/19, at approximately 1612 hours, Detective Popp*116 and I, Detective Griffith*193 conducted a street stop on a male/black subject matching the description of an offender involved in a Retail Theft at [CNP REDACTION]. The male subject later identified as [CNP REDACTION] was stopped in the area of [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] appeared highly intoxicated. While conducting our investigation, [CNP REDACTION] became uncooperative and verbally aggressive. [CNP REDACTION] was placed in handcuffs for officer safety. [CNP REDACTION]'s right wrist was cuffed first followed by his left wrist. While cuffing [CNP REDACTION] he tensed up multiple times in an attempt to avoid being handcuffed. After securing the handcuffs on [CNP REDACTION], Detective Popp double locked the handcuffs, and the cuffs were fitted for tightness.

In summary: On 11/21/19 at approximately 0105 hrs. I, Officer Pack #234, was dispatched to a disturbance at [CNP REDACTION]. The caller told dispatch her husband was attempting to break down the door to her apartment [CNP REDACTION]. Upon arrival, Officers Hicks, Romero, Hindes and I arrived in the fourth floor hallway simultaneously and observed a subject, later identified as [CNP REDACTION] outside the door of [CNP REDACTION] yelling and banging on the door. I instructed [CNP REDACTION] to show his hands, [CNP REDACTION] said, “Let you see my hands?” and began aggressively banging on the door with his hands and feet in an attempt to gain entry into the apartment. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION] in an attempt to gain compliance, but [CNP REDACTION] resisted. I then took [CNP REDACTION] to the ground. [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist and refused to be handcuffed. [CNP REDACTION] had a puffy winter coat on and it appeared as if he was attempting to put his hands in his pockets. [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist and attempted to go in his jacket pockets as he was still actively resisting. Subsequently, I used a closed fist and delivered a stunning blow to the large muscle group of [CNP REDACTION]'s upper back while giving commands for him to stop resisting. I was eventually able to gain control of [CNP REDACTION]'s arms and place him in handcuffs.

On 2/26/18 at approximately 1816 hours, I, Detective Holliman *150 and partner Detective Rosenbaum *161, curbed a gray colored KIA bearing Illinois license plate [EPD REDACTION] at [CNP REDACTION] for a traffic violation. Upon making contact with the driver, identified as [CNP REDACTION], who I knew to have an active warrant, he was asked to exit the vehicle. Upon [CNP REDACTION] exiting the vehicle, he was asked to place his hands behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] did not comply. I grabbed [CNP REDACTION]'s left arm to gain control of it and to place him in handcuffs. [CNP REDACTION] immediately locked his arms and refused to place his hands behind his back. As I attempted to place [CNP REDACTION]'s hands behind his back, I gave him a verbal command to not fight. I was then able to place one handcuff on [CNP REDACTION]'s left wrist, where he then began to actively resist by flailing his arms, spinning his body and snatching his right hand away from Detective Rosenbaum. While [CNP REDACTION] was actively resisting, I continued to give him loud verbal commands to stop resisting and to place his hands behind his back. While [CNP REDACTION] was attempting to defeat the arrest I attempted an arm bar take down, while still maintaining control of the handcuff, which was un-successful. [CNP REDACTION] then momentarily stopped actively resisting, but still refusing to place his hands behind his back he was instructed to go down to the ground, he did not comply. [CNP REDACTION] then began to actively resist again by attempting to turn his body, flail his arms and snatching away from Detective Rosenbaum and I. I continued to give [CNP REDACTION] loud verbal commands to stop resisting and I advised him if he did not comply he would be tasered. [CNP REDACTION] continued to actively resist until he was tasered by Detective Rosenbaum. Upon completion of the electrical cycle, [CNP REDACTION] voluntarily placed his hands behind his back, where I was able to place the second handcuff on [CNP REDACTION]'s right wrist.

On 1/16/16, at approximately 1458 hrs, I, Ofc. Howard #126 responded to the area of [CNP REDACTION] for an attempt burglary assignment. While en route, officers advised us that they were in foot pursuit with a M/[EPD REDACTION] offender wearing a grey coat. We were then advised that the offender was running towards [CNP REDACTION]. While driving S/B on [CNP REDACTION], I observed a subject matching the description running S/B on the sidewalk. I stopped the car and exited my vehicle in pursuit of the subject. I chased the offender W/B towards Fleetwood-Jourdain. I yelled to the offender, "Stop Running"! He continued to run and I was able to catch up with him at the tennis court outside of the facility. I grabbed the offender and pulled him down to the ground. At this time, the offender was on his back. Once I was able to get control of the offender, I gave commands for him to turn over on his stomach. Finally after he was turned over on his stomach, I handcuffed him and pulled him off the ground by grabbing his arm. 16-1428 1/22/16 30/12/2020 Howard 126 4th Ward Takedown Redacted M Redacted Attempt Burglary Radio assignment for burglary in progress Light Ofc.

On Thursday, 07/06/2017 at approximately 11:25 hrs I, Ofc. Huber #180 responded to the area of [CNP REDACTION] in reference to a disturbance. Communications advised a subject fled the St. Francis Hospital intensive care unit against hospital staff consent. Communications further advised the subject [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] had been involuntarily committed to the hospital for an attempt-suicide. [CNP REDACTION] was observed running on the CTA tracks westbound from Ridge. At this time I exited my squad car to assist. I engaged [CNP REDACTION] in a foot pursuit, while in full uniform, along the CTA tracks. It should be noted the pursuit lasted at least a quarter of a mile, beginning around 900 block of Mulford and ending at the 1600 block. The outdoor temperature was approximately 90 degrees. I began to feel exhaustion from the high temperature and physical exertion. Evanston Police Officers advised over the radio [CNP REDACTION] had a tendency to be violent. I gave [CNP REDACTION] multiple verbal commands to stop running. [CNP REDACTION] refused to do so. At one point a CTA train was east bound toward [CNP REDACTION] and me on the CTA tracks. [CNP REDACTION] looked at the train and diverted his course in the direction of the train. I screamed, "Don't do it" and [CNP REDACTION] diverted his attention back to me and continued fleeing westbound on the CTA Tracks. Eventually [CNP REDACTION] diverted his path south toward heavy vegetation alone the 200 Block Florence. I entered the vegetation after [CNP REDACTION]. The vegetation's growth was such that I could not see [CNP REDACTION] and the height of the vegetation was approximately 8 feet tall. A fence approximately 8 feet tall to the south and the CTA tracks to the north prevented fellow Officers from reaching my location. I gave [CNP REDACTION] verbal commands not to move. At this time I observed [CNP REDACTION] swing at me through the vegetation. I deployed my Taser striking [CNP REDACTION] in the right torso. [CNP REDACTION] did not appear to be affected however, he started to comply with my verbal commands. I held [CNP REDACTION] at Taser point until assisting Officers arrived to handcuff [CNP REDACTION].

On 05/16/2018 at 1151 hours, I (Det W Hunt *121) was contacted via cellular phone by Assistant Principal Diona Lewis of Haven Middle School. Diona stated to me that she needed me outside by the basketball courts on the school grounds immediately. While en route from my office inside Haven, I observed Diona, along with the Assistant Principal Amy Wharton and Social Worker Geri Helfand, standing over [EPD REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] was sitting on the ground at that time. As I got closer, [EPD REDACTION] had gotten to his feet, and he appeared to be going after another student. Diona, Amy, and Geri were all attempting to hold him back. I could see [EPD REDACTION] resisting them attempting to hold him, and he was disobeying their commands to stop resisting. Upon my arrival, I grabbed [EPD REDACTION] by the left arm as Diona was holding [EPD REDACTION] by the right arm. [EPD REDACTION] refused our request to calm down. I then stated to Diona that I was putting [EPD REDACTION] on the ground to better control him. As Diona continued to hold [EPD REDACTION] right arm and I am holding the left, I tripped [EPD REDACTION] with my right leg, causing him to loose balance. Diona and I laid [EPD REDACTION] on the ground, on his stomach. I held [EPD REDACTION] on the ground with my hands on his back. [EPD REDACTION] began to yell, "Get off me". I stated to [EPD REDACTION] that once he calmed down, I would get off of him. Within seconds of my command, [EPD REDACTION] stopped resisting and laid on his stomach. I then took my hands off of [EPD REDACTION] He continued to lie on his stomach until the Social Worker was able to convince him to get up and come to the building. Once [EPD REDACTION] got off the ground, the staff and I were able to walk him into the school, and into the principal's officer without incident. I then learned that [EPD REDACTION] had been in a fight with a student prior to my arrival. [EPD REDACTION] mother was contacted by Diona, but she refused to come to the school. The school's heath clerk informed me that she did a check of [EPD REDACTION] and he had no physical injury. She did state that [EPD REDACTION] had complained about is eye hurting from being punched during the fight. It should be noted that the E.T. Scheck arrived on scene to take photographs of Diona, who got injured on the [EPD REDACTION] attempting to restrain [EPD REDACTION]. I contacted Sgt Jason Garner to make him aware of this incident. I also completed a use of force report due to me having to take [EPD REDACTION] to the ground.

In summary but not verbatim: On 04/12/16 at approx. 0925Hrs I, OFC Jacobs, was on scene at [CNP REDACTION] for a check the well-being of a subject, [EPD REDACTION]. During my conversation with [EPD REDACTION] he became more agitated and was twitching and getting louder. He stated that he was not going to go to the hospital with anyone. I contacted dispatch and asked for Evanston Fire to respond for an involuntary committal. I continue to talk to Johnson and attempted to calm him down. [EPD REDACTION] was asked to step into the hallway and he refused. I moved behind [EPD REDACTION] to prevent him from gaining access to unsearched areas of the apartment. He then asked for his coat. I told him I would retrieve it for him. [EPD REDACTION] began yelling and said "I'll get my fucking coat". He then pushed me in the chest with his hand, shoving me to the side. [EPD REDACTION] was attempting to reach for his coat, which had not been searched. I then used open hand techniques grabbing [EPD REDACTION] about the upper body along with Ofc Gonzalez #172 in an attempt to secure his arms. I was concerned that he was attempting to grab a weapon or flee. I gave verbal commands repeatedly telling him, "stop resisting, stop fighting". He was yelling and said, "No, I'm not going". He was an immediate threat to our safety as well as the staff on scene if he was able to break free and flee. We fell onto the bed and rolled to the floor. [EPD REDACTION] was on top of Ofc Gonzalez and actively fighting by pulling his arms and tensing his muscles in an attempt to free himself from our grasp. I gave verbal commands and told him "stop resisting or I will tase you." [EPD REDACTION] refused to comply. I then activated the safety switch on my Taser (CEW) and deployed the CEW pointing it at the upper torso and pulling the trigger initiating a 5-second cycle. The prongs deployed into the subject's right bicep. The Neuro-Muscular Incapacitation was sufficient enough to gain compliance. I continued to give verbal commands and told him to roll over and put his hands behind his back. [EPD REDACTION] complied. He was handcuffed because he was a risk to his safety and ours. He then listened to all verbal commands and stayed on the ground calmly and waited until paramedics arrive to remove the prongs. EFD Paramedics were already enroute to our location. They arrived and safely removed the prongs without incident.

In summary but not verbatim: on 04/19/16 at approx. 1354Hrs I, OFC Jacobs, was on scene at [CNP REDACTION] for a premise check along with backup officer George Gonzalez #114. Upon arrival I observed a subject, later identified as [CNP REDACTION], pulling wires out of the house. He stated that he was a contractor working on the site. During the course of my investigation we had moved into the home. I discovered [CNP REDACTION] did not have permission to be on the property. [CNP REDACTION] was sitting on the step in the front livingroom. I told him, "you are under arrest" and asked him to stand up an put his hands behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] was smoking a cigarette and asked if could go outside to put it out. I believed this was an attempt to get outside, so he could flee. I told [CNP REDACTION] that he is under arrest. I asked him to please put out the cigarette and turn around. [CNP REDACTION] disregarded my order and stepped backward behind a small table, located in the northeast corner of the room, creating distance between OFC Gonzalez and myself. I believe this was an attempt to gain separation. He then stated, "this isn't going to go well for you guys". At this time I un-holstered my conducted electrical weapon, CEW (Taser), and told him again he is under arrest. [CNP REDACTION] ignored my direct orders and retreated, reaching with both hands toward his right hip. He was physically trying to defeat the arrest and I believed he was attempting to access a weapon on his person. I aimed at [CNP REDACTION]'s upper torso and pulled the trigger on the CEW and it did not deploy because I did not active the safety switch. I then activated the safety switch on my CEW while still aiming at [CNP REDACTION]'s upper torso. I pulled the trigger initiating a 5-second cycle. The prongs deployed into [CNP REDACTION]'s chest. The Neuro-Muscular Incapacitation was insufficient to gain compliance. [CNP REDACTION]e pulled a gun from his right side and pointed it directly at me while the CEW was still cycling. After the CEW finished the cycle I tossed the CEW to the ground and transitioned to my handgun as [CNP REDACTION] turned and ran up the stairs directly behind him. 16-10098 05/04/16 23/12/2020 Jacobs 248 4th Ward Taser 25 M W Burglary, Agg Assault Radio assignment dim sunlit DNA DNA None DNA None None None 923 12 2 Jacobs; Gonzalez No Burglary - Fired Taser when verbally threatened

Benoit @129 responded to the area of [CNP REDACTION] reference a report of a large group of juveniles who might be about to fight. Upon our arrival, we observed two female juveniles (later identified as [EPD REDACTION] and [EPD REDACTION]). Benoit was able to place [EPD REDACTION] in custody, however [EPD REDACTION] continued to attempt to push past myself and [EPD REDACTION]. I took [EPD REDACTION] by her arm, and attempted to handcuff her, however she attempted to pull away from me and aggressively lunged towards an unknown party. At that point, I tripped [EPD REDACTION] with my foot, causing her to loose[sic] her balance, and took her to the ground. I was then able to place her in handcuffs without further incident.

The caller/reporter [EPD REDACTION] related to dispatch her son [CNP REDACTION] was arguing with his girlfriend [EPD REDACTION] in her car and that her 3 year old grandson [EPD REDACTION] was also in the car. Upon my arrival I observed [CNP REDACTION] to be visibly irritated and rocking as well as yelling at [EPD REDACTION] while in the backseat with [EPD REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] exited the vehicle and yelled to me "She ain't going nowhere!" and he aggressively approached the passenger side of the vehicle where [EPD REDACTION] was seated. I ordered [CNP REDACTION] to step away from the vehicle and he responded by yelling "No fuck you I don't gotta do shit you say." [CNP REDACTION] than began yelling at [EPD REDACTION] standing over her while she was still seated in the vehicle. Worried for [EPD REDACTION] safety due to [CNP REDACTION]'s increasingly erratic and aggressive behavior I placed my hand on [CNP REDACTION]'s arm in order to guide him away from the vehicle to which he responded "Don't touch me!" and he pulled away. [CNP REDACTION] then began to remove his jacket, shirt and took a stance I recognized to be a fighting stance. [CNP REDACTION] began pacing and clenching his fists. [CNP REDACTION] began to close the distance between us causing me to be in fear of receiving a battery to which I responded by deploying OC spray (Oleoresin Capsicum) to [CNP REDACTION]'s eyes. [CNP REDACTION] then stated "That shit don't work on me!" and began to step back and run to the other side of the vehicle. 16-2838 02/01/16 26/12/2020 Jones 215 8th Ward OC Spray (Pepper Spray) 21 M B Resisting Arrest, Aggravated Assault Domestic Disturbance assignment Daylight None Redacted Henry Kurtis OC Spray Redacted 27 0 1 Jones No Domestic Disturbance - yelling and anger

In summary, Detective Svendsen #164 and I Detective Jones #162 was assigned an endangered missing person report. On 11/19/19 at approximately 1300 hours, reporter [EPD REDACTION] advised that [CNP REDACTION] had been missing since [CNP REDACTION]. [EPD REDACTION] stated that on today’s date [CNP REDACTION], [CNP REDACTION] text messaged her with suicidal statements. In the text messages, [CNP REDACTION] told [EPD REDACTION] that all of his belongings will remain in his vehicle when he is found and tell his kids that he loved them. [CNP REDACTION] also provided [EPD REDACTION] with information about his UPS mailbox that is located in Evanston. [EPD REDACTION] stated that [CNP REDACTION] takes prescription medication for depression and pain. [EPD REDACTION] stated that [CNP REDACTION] has told her on several occasions that he owns several firearms and has a valid FOID card. [EPD REDACTION] advised that [CNP REDACTION] is driving a white Chevy Equinox vehicle which has an enabled On-Star system. I called On-Star and retrieved updated vehicle location for the Chevy Equinox. The initial data revealed that the vehicle was mobile in [CNP REDACTION]. As Detective Svendsen and I were heading to [CNP REDACTION] to check on [CNP REDACTION]'s well-being, On-Star related that the vehicle was driving westbound on [CNP REDACTION]. Several moments later, Detective Svendsen and I was able to locate the vehicle [CNP REDACTION]. At the time the vehicle was curbed. As I approached the vehicle, I advised the driver ([CNP REDACTION] to place his hands on the steering wheel. I advised [CNP REDACTION] that he was reported missing. The vehicle was occupied by a male front passenger and another driver sitting in the back seat behind the driver’s side. [CNP REDACTION] began to shift around inside the vehicle and I advised him to exit the vehicle due to his suspicious movements and the uncertainty that he was in possession of the above mentioned firearms. When [CNP REDACTION] exited the vehicle I advised him to place his hand on top of his head. [CNP REDACTION] ignored my demands and attempted to re-enter the vehicle. I advised [CNP REDACTION] that he was being taken to the hospital for a mental evaluation and which he stated that I don’t have jurisdiction to make him go to the hospital. At this time [CNP REDACTION] attempted to re-enter his vehicle and Detective Svendsen and I attempted to place handcuffs on [CNP REDACTION] to prevent him from the vehicle driving away, endangering himself and the other people that were inside the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] became aggressive and combative and ignored my command to not enter the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] was given a reasonable opportunity to voluntarily comply with my orders, in which he refused. I provided [CNP REDACTION] and Detective Svensden a warning that my Taser devise will be deployed. I deployed my Taser targeting the lower center mass area. The first deployment struck the exterior of [CNP REDACTION]'s puffy coat, giving [CNP REDACTION] the opportunity to turn his back and run. I deployment(sic) the second application which caused [CNP REDACTION] to fall to the grass and comply. [CNP REDACTION] was handcuffed, secured and transported to Evanston Hospital. [CNP REDACTION] did not sufer any injuries due to the arrest or Taser deployment. 19-10514 11/25/19 26/12/2020 Jones 162 Northbrook Taser 55 M W None Missing Endangered person Follow-Up Bright/Outdoors None N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A 11 6 2 Jones; Svendsen No UoF used due to noncompliance
On 04-25-2018 at approximately 0817, Patrol Officers radioed that a silver Hyundai with IL plate [EPD REDACTION] occupied by several individuals had just fled West from their stop, leaving the scene at [CNP REDACTION]. Det. Tamburrino and I were in the area of Main and Hartrey in our unmarked police squad (85) when Ofc. Serviss radioed that he just witnessed the suspect vehicle crash into a building at [CNP REDACTION]. I could see the crashed vehicle ahead of us and then witnessed a white male running on the sidewalk Westbound from the area of the crash. Det. Tamburrino stopped our squad in front of the suspect male, who then turned and attempted to run around our squad from us. I exited my squad car and saw the suspect male was now face down on the boulevard. The suspect male rolled his body and swung his arms away from me, Officer Serviss and Det. Tamburrino. While attempting to place the suspect into handcuffs, he pulled his arms from our grasps. Loud - direct orders were given to the suspect male to stop resisting. During the continued struggle, I heard Ofc. Serviss shout that the man was trying to take his (Serviss') gun. I chose to deploy my department issued Taser (Electronic Control Weapon - ECW) at the man, striking him in the right side of his torso. The Taser appeared to have minimal, if no effect on the man, to comply with commands to stop resisting. Additional Officers arrive on scene as the man continued to thrust his body away from us. Multiple Officers were needed to aid in securing the man in handcuffs. 18-3416 4/25/18 01/12/2020 Just 190 2nd Ward Taser Deployment 26P (#25) 28 M W Pending On-view Daylight C. Just *190, C.

On 06-01-2018 at approximately 1043 I, Detective C. Just *190, heard dispatch radio that a male subject, possibly a juvenile, had run into the road at Emerson and Hartrey and been struck by a vehicle. I went to the area and located an injured adult male black sitting on the curb speaking with Evanston Officers. I made contact with a woman who identified herself as a witness who stated she was driving Westbound on Emerson when she saw the adult male roll from a vehicle that was proceeding Eastbound on Emerson. The witness, [EPD REDACTION], told me that she saw the man's head hit the ground in the middle of the roadway. While I was speaking further with [EPD REDACTION] I saw the man, later identified as [EPD REDACTION] stand up and begin to stumble away on foot [EPD REDACTION] ran West into the road, away from Officers requesting that he remain on scene for medical attention. [EPD REDACTION] continued running West in the roadway, then suddenly approach the driver's side door of a light colored sedan that was stopped in traffic due to the incident. I witnessed [EPD REDACTION] pull back on the driver's side door handle to enter the occupied vehicle, however the door did not open and [EPD REDACTION] continued to run West in the middle of the roadway. Due to the increased public safety risk of [EPD REDACTION] attempting to enter an occupied vehicle, I pursued [EPD REDACTION] on foot and caught up to him in front of [CNP REDACTION]. I drew my department issued Electronic Control Weapon (Taser) and identified myself as an Evanston Police Officer. I gave several loud, clear directions to [EPD REDACTION] to get on the ground. [EPD REDACTION] paused for several seconds, then lowered himself onto the ground but rolled his body away from Officers. I directed [EPD REDACTION] to lay face down but he refused. Ofc. Sosa was able to secure one handcuff on [EPD REDACTION] left arm before [EPD REDACTION] swung his right arm toward me. [EPD REDACTION] then used his right arm to push away from being secured and then kicked his legs out. I loudly told [EPD REDACTION] to stop resisting otherwise he would be tased. [EPD REDACTION] continued to swing his body away from Ofc. Sosa and he refused directions to comply. Due to [EPD REDACTION] continued physical resistance, I deployed my Taser and made contact with [EPD REDACTION] The Taser appeared to have little effect as a result of the deployment and he continued to pull away from Officers. [EPD REDACTION] rolled his body away from Officers and rose to his knees. [EPD REDACTION] maintained his refusal to comply and swung his arms from Officers. In yet another effort to secure [EPD REDACTION] I deployed my Taser again (drive stun), and [EPD REDACTION] rolled onto his stomach. Multiple Officers were now on scene to assist in placing [EPD REDACTION] arms behind his back to secure him in handcuffs as he continued to pull his arms from being secured. Once secured in handcuffs, I observed [EPD REDACTION] snap his head toward the leg of Sgt. Bush and bite his pant. [EPD REDACTION] was transported via ambulance to Post 10 for medical treatment. During the struggle to secure [EPD REDACTION], multiple Officers (including Ofc. Sosa) made contact with [EPD REDACTION] blood, including myself. I completed an Injury on Duty Report and a Use of Force Report. 18-4658 6/1/18 10/12/2020 Just 190 5th Ward Taser Deployment 26P (#25) 49 M B Redacted On-view Daylight C.

In summary, but not verbatim, on 06-13-16 at approximately 0039 hours, I, Ofc Kane #209 and my partner Ofc Rosenbaum #161 were dispatched to [CNP REDACTION] for a domestic disturbance involving an in-progress criminal damage to vehicle. Upon arrival, my partner and I observed the suspect, later identified as [CNP REDACTION] [EPD REDACTION] striking the front passenger side window of a black in color Ford Explorer with closed fists (vehicle bearing IL registration: [EPD REDACTION]. My partner and I immediately exited our vehicle and gave loud and clear verbal commands to [CNP REDACTION] to stop hitting the vehicle. [CNP REDACTION] turned towards us, raised both of her middle fingers, yelled "fuck you" and began to walk away. My partner and I continued to give loud and clear verbal commands for her to stop walking away. I then observed a subject on the porch of [CNP REDACTION], later identified as her brother, [CNP REDACTION], point at [CNP REDACTION], and state "please stop her." [CNP REDACTION] subsequently refused to listen to all of our commands, even after I told her she was going to be detained for a criminal damage to vehicle investigation. [CNP REDACTION] kept walking away, at which point I grabbed her right arm, in which she immediately swung both arms aggressively away from me, resisting my arrest. I then conducted a double-leg take down on [CNP REDACTION] , bringing her to the ground (grass), subsequently giving my partner and me a better position for an arrest technique. [CNP REDACTION] continued to resist, by stiffening her arms and aggressively rolling her body side to side. I then conducted an empty hand control tactic with joint manipulation to place her arms in a position, where I could safely and securely handcuff [CNP REDACTION]. [CNP REDACTION] did not appear to have any visible injuries and refused all medical attention. Jessica was transported by my partner and I to the Evanston Police Department for processing. 16-16215 06/13/16 13/11/2020 Kane 209 5th Ward Take down 26 F B Resisting a Police Officer - 720 ALCS 5/31-1(a) - Class A Misd. -- 2 counts Domestic Disturbance & Criminal Damage -- Dispatched Service Call Dark with streets lights None N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A 10 0 2 Kane; Rosenbaum No brother's name is not redacted Radio response to Criminal Damage to property (Sister striking brother's car with fist)

Driver, [CNP REDACTION] opened the driver door and began to walk away from the vehicle. My partner and I immediately exited our vehicle and gave loud and clear verbal commands to [CNP REDACTION] to stop. We quickly approached the subject and conducted a protective pat down due to his evasive manners. Evanston Police Dispatch then informed me that [CNP REDACTION] has a suspended Illinois Driver’s License. [CNP REDACTION] was then informed that he was under arrest for driving on a suspended license and was instructed to place his hands behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] began to actively resist arrest by pulling his body away from us, placing his hands towards his chest, clenching his fists, and refusing to place his hands behind his back. My partner and I then gave [CNP REDACTION] multiple verbal commands to stop resisting and conducted a take down to the ground. I then conducted and empty hand control tactic to place his arms in a position, where I could safely and securely handcuff [CNP REDACTION].

LEADS confirmed a valid and extraditable warrant for [CNP REDACTION] . Upon attempting to take [CNP REDACTION] into custody, he quickly backed away from Officer Kane and I, and while doing so, raised both of his hands in the air, which he was holding an aluminum can of beans at the time in his right hand, in an aggressive manner, placing Officer Kane in reasonable fear of being struck by [CNP REDACTION]. Officer Kane performed a closed fist strike using his right hand to [CNP REDACTION]'s upper portion of the face. I reacted to the situation by assisting [CNP REDACTION] to the ground with my arms wrapped around his upper torso. [CNP REDACTION] was subsequently taken into custody without further incident. 19-3356 04/28/19 15/01/2021 Kane 209 8th Ward Closed Fist Strike 43 M B Aggravated Assault to Police Officer, Driving while Suspended, Warrants Traffic Stop Lighted Carl Gustafson *120, Kane *209 During Use of Force take down, during Use of Force closed fist strike St. Francis Emergency Room by Dr. Iglesias Redacted Keith D.

In summary unless otherwise stated: On 1/21/16 at approximately 14:39 hrs, I was assigned to a vehicle crash investigation where both parties were waiting in the rear parking lot of [CNP REDACTION]. After speaking with the caller, identified as [EPD REDACTION], I approached the second party involved who identified himself as [EPD REDACTION]. He advised that he was transporting students home from school at the time of the crash. I then observed a juvenile subject, later identified as [EPD REDACTION], who was the only other passenger in [EPD REDACTION]'s vehicle. After obtaining [EPD REDACTION]'s information and statement, I approached [EPD REDACTION] who already appeared to be agitated and was using profanity, and asked his age and if he was hurt or required medical attention. [EPD REDACTION] stated that he was seventeen (17) and did not require medical attention. I then advised [EPD REDACTION] that I was completing an accident report and required his name and contact information for the report. [EPD REDACTION] refused and stated, "I'm not giving you my name." I then explained a second time that I required his name for the report for insurance and documentation purposes only. [EPD REDACTION] then stated, "[EPD REDACTION]. You know what? Fuck that, I'm not giving you my name." I then advised [EPD REDACTION] that he is required to provide his name and contact information for the report, and he cannot leave without parental consent due to the fact that he is a minor. [EPD REDACTION] replied, "Fuck this, I'm just gonna walk home." I then immediately requested a supervisor at my location. [EPD REDACTION] then began walking away from the location at which time I ordered him to stop immediately. [Redacted} refused, at which time I grasped onto his upper, right arm and ordered him to stop, and return to his vehicle. [EPD REDACTION] stated, "Don't grab me" and pulled his arm away from me, faced me, and took a fighting stance. I grabbed his right arm a second time, turned his body facing away from me, and guided him back to his vehicle where I ordered him to face the vehicle, and not to move. [EPD REDACTION] then pulled his arm away from me and swung his elbow toward my face as he turned to his right to face me at which time he took a fighting stance. I then advised [EPD REDACTION] again, that he could not leave without parental consent and ordered him to walk to my police vehicle where he would be seated in the back seat to prevent him from fleeing. [EPD REDACTION] refused to comply with my orders at which time I grabbed his right arm, turned his body facing away from me, and maneuvered his right wrist behind his back. [EPD REDACTION] continued to resist by attempting to pull his right arm away from me toward his chest while ignoring my commands to place his hands behind his back, stop resisting, and wlak to my vehicle. Accompanied by [EPD REDACTION] who was pleading with [EPD REDACTION] to comply, I escorted [EPD REDACTION] to my police vehicle while he continued to attempt to pull his arms away from me and ignore orders to stop resisting and walk to the vehicle. Once we arrived at my police vehicle, I requested that [EPD REDACTION] open the rear, passenger door of my vehicle. Once the door was open, I ordered [EPD REDACTION] to sit inside of the back seat. [EPD REDACTION], "I'll sit myself, bitch" and sat in the back seat of his own accord.

While conducting a Domestic Disturbance investigation in [CNP REDACTION], suspect [CNP REDACTION], repeatedly threatened bodily harm to Officers on scene. After already demonstrating violent behavior, in that he punched the windshield of his girlfriend's vehicle causing extensive damage, [CNP REDACTION] stated "I'll whoop your bitch ass. I ain't afraid of you bitch ass n******" multiple times to both myself, as well as Officer Witt. [CNP REDACTION] also continued to step into close proximity to Officer Witt while continuing to be verbally combative and clenching his fists. Officer Witt ordered [CNP REDACTION] to step back and to unclench his fists at which time [CNP REDACTION] stated "Fuck you, I ain't doing shit". [CNP REDACTION] was then ordered a second time by both Officer Witt and myself to step away from Officer Witt and unclench his fists or he would be arrested for Disobedience to Police. [CNP REDACTION] then stepped back, but continued to take an aggressive posture and verbally combative while stating that he was not afraid of the Police. When the initial incident was resolved and it was determined that the victim did not wish to pursue the incident, [CNP REDACTION] was ordered to leave the area immediately or he would be arrested for Disobedience to Police. [CNP REDACTION] then stated, "Fuck you bitches, I did three years for armed robbery, I'll whoop your ass, you ain't shit." [CNP REDACTION] then approached Evanston Police vehicle #45 and kicked the rear, driver side window and door. At that time, I approached [CNP REDACTION], advised him that he was under arrest and to place his hands behind his back. [CNP REDACTION] then stated "Fuck you, I'll whoop your ass" and walked away from me. I ordered him a second time to stop and place his hands behind his back at which time he replied "fuck you" and refused to comply. Due to already displaying aggressive and violent behavior by punching a vehicle windshield and kicking a Police vehicle, as well as the previous threats of bodily harm toward Police Officers, I felt that a physical altercation would have ensued and myself, as well as assisting Officers, would sustain physical injuries should we attempt to physically restrain [CNP REDACTION] , therefore I deployed my Taser to [CNP REDACTION]'S upper back causing him to fall to the ground. [CNP REDACTION] then immediately complied with orders to place his hands behind his back at which time Officer Witt placed [CNP REDACTION] into handcuffs. [CNP REDACTION] then began crying and advised he want to commit suicide. A supervisor was immediately requested and Taser cartridge/probes were collected and turned over to the Evidence Technician. 16-30734 11/10/16 19/01/2021 Kerley 125 8th Ward Taser Deployment 26 M W Disobedience to Police Assignment Darkness, lighted parking lot N/A N/A Redacted N/A Christian V.

Upon arrival on the Maple Ave entrance to the Metra platform, Officer Carrasco and I proceeded upstairs where we located the above subject. I observed [CNP REDACTION] walking north on the Metra platform stumbling. Subject was on the edge of the platform, and due to his inability to keep his balance I feared he could fall onto the rail road tracks. Upon initial approached I detected a strong odor of alcohol emitting from the subject. During our conversation with [CNP REDACTION], he related he consumed beer and smoked cannabis. Subject proceeded to stumble as he gathered his belonging in order to leave the Metra platform. During the slow process of escorting [CNP REDACTION] from the platform, down the handicapped ramp to safety, he was unwilling to walk and began to refer to me as "bitch". Once, on Maple Ave, [CNP REDACTION] threw his belongings on the sidewalk and continued to stumble heavily. I requested Evanston Fire Department to respond to the scene in order to transport [CNP REDACTION] to the hospital for treatment due to intoxication. Evanston Fire Department personnel arrived and proceeded to speak to [CNP REDACTION]. Captain Lynch instructed [CNP REDACTION] to proceed into the ambulance, upon which Steven Schwind became belligerent. Captain Lynch turned towards the ambulance at which time; [CNP REDACTION] pushed Captain Lynch with both hands, causing Captain Lynch to lose his balance.

I unholstered my taser and ordered him in clear and loud voice to place his hands behind his back. I advised [CNP REDACTION] he is under arrest for a battery. [CNP REDACTION] ignored numerous orders and continued to proceed towards me in an aggressive manner. I deployed my taser striking [CNP REDACTION] in the front torso without any effect. I observed one of the taser prongs hanging off of subjects clothing. I issued another warning and ordered [CNP REDACTION] to place his hands behind his back, which he once more ignored as he proceeded to move in my direction. I deployed my second taser cartridge and struck the subject in the front, upper torso.

I jumped out of my vehicle and met [CNP REDACTION] and Ofc Jones #215 near the driver's door of [CNP REDACTION]'s vehicle. I observed [CNP REDACTION] to be highly aggressive and not responding to anything that was being told to him. [CNP REDACTION] was clenching his fists and not able to listen to commands being given. Due to [CNP REDACTION]'s aggressive nature I advised [CNP REDACTION] to put his hand behind his back and he was under arrest. [CNP REDACTION] shouted, "No!" I advised [CNP REDACTION] again to put his hands behind his back and relax and he became more agitated, ripping away from me when I tried to gain control of his arm.
