    $7.7M Award for Chicago False Arrest


    A trained nurse, Rachelle Jackson immediately ran toward the sound of the crash. A Chicago police car had collided with another vehicle and was starting to smoke, two officers still inside. Fearing an explosion, she quickly pulled one officer from the passenger side.She never imagined her act of kindness nearly six years ago would land her in jail for more than 10 months on charges that she robbed, battered and disarmed a peace officer.

    She was held for two days with little food and water and was threatened with violence until she agreed to sign a statement police had prepared for her. She was then charged and spent more than 10 months in the Cook County Jail awaiting trial.

    Her case was later thrown out by a Circuit Court judge. Jackson sued the city, Brogan and the two interrogation officers in 2003.

    Interesting. So, if they took, the gun, where do they think she hid it? Sounds like they took her right from the scene. Sometimes people can just be stupid (the police, not her).

    If you read through the comments, someone says that she was taken into custody when LE claimed she took the gun, but no gun was ever missing. A witness reported that someone was running down the street with a gun, and it spiraled out of control from there. But, who knows if that's the truth, it certainly wasn't reported in the paper that way.

    Anyway, it sounds like LE at the very least thought she was involved in the crash somehow.
