Another cop proves to be a liar after video emerges
Chicago police officer Joe D. Parker was named “Top Cop” for the record amount of DUI arrests he accumulated over the years.
But it turns out, the 22-year veteran was probably filing false police reports all those years, if a recent video is any indicator.
The video was taken by his dashboard camera after he pulled over a man in a Lexus last year.
The video shows Raymond Bell walking a straight line without flailing his arms, contrary to what Parker wrote in his report.
Cook County prosecutors dropped the charges against Bell after seeing the video. Now they are considering filing charges against Parker, who was arrested for DUI in 1996, but had his charges dropped a year later.
