Police Officer Accused Of False DUI Arrests Placed On Administrative Leave

Comments (0)

A police officer from Chicago who has been accused of making false arrests for DUI has been placed on administrative leave.

 

According to a spokesperson for the Chicago Police Department, Officer Richard Fiorito has been placed on desk duty, pending an investigation by Internal Affairs.

 

A federal civil rights lawsuit has been filed against Fiorito by a total of 21 people.

 

Several plaintiffs allege that they were targeted by Fiorito as they were leaving bars in the city’s Boystown neighborhood.

 

According to a report from Chicago’s ABC7, the Cook County state’s attorney is conducting his own investigation into Fiorito.

 

Fiorito’s attorney claims the allegations are false.
