Critics have slammed the gang member database. How will the Chicago PD respond?
The Chicago Police Department and the DEA spearheaded an 18-count, 262-page federal criminal complaint filed in a U.S. District Court in Chicago. The sweep was a combined effort of numerous Illinois and federal agencies. There were 23 people targeted for arrest, and 21 were found as of the last report. They were hit with drug trafficking charges relating to distributing large amounts of heroin and cocaine in Illinois and two nearby states.
A fullback for the Chicago Bears was arrested recently while traveling with the team for off-season training. Evan Rodriguez was eventually charged with disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest after allegedly trying to evade police questioning and disrupting an investigation of a car accident in which the player had been a passenger in one of the vehicles.
