Chicago police commander accused of misconduct

CHICAGO (AP) — A Chicago police commander is to appear in court on charges of aggravated battery and official misconduct.

The appearance of Glenn Evans on Thursday comes during the same week that he was charged and stripped of his police powers.

The Cook County State's Attorney's office says the charges against Evans are the result of a complaint filed in January 2013. Evans is accused of putting the barrel of his gun into a suspect's mouth following a chase.

Evans is considered one of Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy's most trusted commanders. McCarthy issued a statement saying that, if true, the actions are unacceptable. But McCarthy says Evans is innocent until proven guilty.
