    North Chicago's 'Top cop' accused of beating up chief :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Chicago Crime

    BY DAN ROZEK Staff Reporter/drozek@suntimes.com

    North Chicago's "Officer of the Year" allegedly pummeled and seriously injured Waukegan's police chief after finding him in his estranged wife's home.

    North Chicago Officer Carl Sain was charged with felony aggravated battery following the Wednesday altercation in Waukegan, which left Police Chief Artis Yancey with several broken bones in his face, Lake County State's Attorney Michael Waller said.

    Sain, 45, pummeled Yancey with his fists -- and possibly with his department-issued handgun -- after forcing his way into his estranged wife's home about 11:30 p.m. and discovering Yancey inside in an upstairs bedroom, Waller said.

    Sain -- named in April as North Chicago Police Officer of the Year -- and his wife are in the midst of a divorce, Waller said.

    Yancey, who was promoted to Waukegan police chief in May, is a friend of Sain's wife, Waller said.

    Sain was off duty and not in uniform when he came to his wife's home, knocked repeatedly on the door -- then broke through a pane of glass and unlocked the door, Waller said. Once inside, Sain found Yancey alone in an upstairs bedroom and attacked him, punching him in the face and head, leaving his suit stained with blood, Waller said.

    Sain's wife called 911, and Waukegan police arrested Sain at the home.

    His pistol -- streaked with blood -- was found in the house, but it's not clear if the weapon was used to beat Yancey, or whether the blood came from a cut Sain apparently suffered while breaking through the window, Waller said.

    Sain was released from custody Sunday after posting 10 percent of his $75,000 bail. He faces up to five years in prison if convicted of aggravated battery.

    Yancey is expected to recover from his injuries, Waller said.

    Sain, who couldn't be reached for comment, has been put on administrative leave by North Chicago officials.

    Waukegan police declined to comment, but said Yancey is taking time off.

    North Chicago officials couldn't be reached for comment.

    .....
    ........
    yet no mention of shots fired?
    I think this might just be another nail in the coffin of the Anti's CC might just fly off the handle and shoot someone.
    We might start a fight, but I didn't see any mention of shooting.

    Still bad cop, no donut.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    This is all bad.
    I wonder what kind of investigations the 'Chief' was involved in...
    The officer of the year going to jail over a wife he's divorcing?

    And these two individuals both took oaths to 'protect and serve'?

    Sounds like an "undercover" investigation to me.

    It's a bad situation, but I agree with TerriLi. It seriously undermines anti-gun assertions that the presence of firearms is a causal factor in the occurrence of violent acts or will necessarily escalate a dangerous situation. He was angry, but obviously not murderously enraged.
