The Sun-Times Media Wire reported on July 2, 2013, that Maywood Deputy Police Chief Brian Black pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice charges stemming from a 2010 incident:
“A west suburban deputy police chief pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice Tuesday for lying to police about a 2010 incident in which he allegedly struck a young man in the head with his gun.
Maywood Deputy Chief Brian Black, who was 36 at the time, was charged with obstruction of justice and felony disorderly conduct in November 2010, according to the Cook County State’s Attorney’s office.
On Tuesday, Black pleaded guilty to one felony charge of obstruction, and Judge Thomas Gainer sentenced him to 12 months of probation, state’s attorney’s office spokeswoman Tandra Simonton said.
The charges followed an off-duty incident in November 2010 in which Black struck his friend in the head with a pistol, then told police the victim tried to carjack him, prosecutors said at the time of his initial court appearance.”
