Officer of the Year seriously injures Police Chief after finding him in his estranged wife's home
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.

What an idiot.'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

Wow! I had to laugh at this cause I was voted officer of the year in 2005! Ofcourse my wife and I are still married and have been for 15 years so I don't see this happening. Although, I would have kicked my last chief's ass just for the fun of it. I like my new chief so I good there.
Still though.....this thread was pretty funny!I'm ready for spring!

1. I could see it happening if they were still together.
2. I could see it happening if they were still together and she and the chief were in the bedroom together.
What a fool to ruin his career over his soon to be EX-wife when she wasn't even in the room. Maybe the chief is renting a room from her. ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
My dad, I miss him every day.
