- A parolee who battered an off-duty police officer into unconsciousness near Wrigley Field in June 2016 has been sentenced to time served plus 8 days by Cook County Judge Earl Hoffenberg.
The 28-year-old officer announced his office as he tried to break up a dispute on the corner of Clark and Addison at 12:40 a.m. last June 26. According to witnesses and audio recorded on a nearby webcam, the off-duty officer intervened when a disturbance between two men and one of the men’s girlfriend escalated on the southeast corner of Clark and Addison.
Tremaine Wilson, 30, blindsided the officer, knocking him out, according to witnesses and a police report. Wilson fled the scene and was arrested nearby. He was charged with six counts of aggravated battery to a police officer and two counts of aggravated battery in a public place.
And to add insult to injury, he was on parole. But the parole violation was rolled into his guilty plea and he walked out the day after the plea was entered on the single count.
