An off-duty Chicago police officer is facing misdemeanor charges after she allegedly hit an on-duty officer in the face shortly after Halloween in Lake View on the North Side.
Karina Salgado, 30, was charged with criminal trespass, battery and resisting a peace officer, Chicago police said.
About 1:20 a.m. Nov. 1, Salgado was told she couldn’t enter an establishment in the 3700 block of North Broadway, police said.
However, she again tried to get inside before taking off, police said. Officers caught up with her and told her she was not allowed into the business.
Officers saw her trying to get inside once more and stepped in to stop her, police said. Salgado allegedly became aggressive and struck an officer with an open hand.
She was taken into custody and placed on the Alternate Response Section pending the outcome of the investigation, police said. She has worked with the Chicago Police Department for two years.
