SHOCKING: Chicago officer 'drank beers' before fatally shooting man
A CHICAGO police officer admitted that he drank “multiple beers” before fatally shooting a man in 2011, reports The Chicago Tribune.
Last year June, Gildardo Sierra, who previously denied being under the influence before the killing, was caught on CCTV firing three shots into Flint Farmer’s back.
The 32-year-old was said to have settled a civil lawsuit with the family of for an amount that remains undisclosed.
Six months before Famer’s death Sierra fatally shot after unidentified teenager, causing questions to be asked about why he was allowed to continue to work on duty while armed.
Superintendent Garry McCarthy told The Tribune that he considers the case “a big problem” before noting that the officer should “not have been on the street” given his history.
A psychological report of Sierra allegedly revealed that after the incident he “was nervous about his then-upcoming mandatory alcohol breath test because he might test positive for alcohol”.
The former patrol officer allegedly has a "desk job" within the force.
