Chicago Bartender Bribed After Beating By Cop
The story of off-duty Chicago cop Anthony Abbate beating bartender Karolina Obrycka just got sleazier. Obrycka says she was offered a bribe if she would remain silent about the beating.
"Another individual came in moments after the attack and attempted to offer the victim money in order for her not to prosecute the defendant," Cook County Assistant State's Atty. David Navarro said.
Further, Ekl alleged that police gave Abbate special treatment because he was a fellow officer.
"They were not treating him the same way they would treat any other citizen," he said.
Police are investigating this issue, department News Affairs Deputy Director Monique Bond said.
Obrycka's attorney Terry Ekl allages the owner of Jesse's Shortstop Inn Tavern, the bar of the attack, was told drugs would be planted on the establishment if Obrycka pressed charges.
