Chicago cop falsely reported his car stolen 44 times to beat traffic tickets, prosecutors say

Chicago cop falsely reported his car stolen 44 times to beat traffic tickets, prosecutors say

A Chicago police officer falsely reported that his personal car had been stolen 44 times since 2009 to avoid paying parking and automated traffic tickets, officials said Tuesday.

Jeffrey Kriv, 56, made more than $145,000 as a Chicago cop in 2021 and retired this month, according to public records. He faces felony charges for four of the 44 alleged filings.

The Chicago Office of Inspector General launched an investigation into Kriv after receiving a complaint in February 2022

They determined that Kriv contested 44 tickets since 2009 in administrative hearings, claiming each time that the citations were issued to his vehicle after his girlfriend stole it, prosecutor Thomas Fryska said.

Kriv allegedly made false statements during the hearings and submitted nearly identical false police reports to support his claim each time. All of the tickets were dismissed, Fryska said.

'Dances With Wolves' actor arrested in Nevada sex abuse case

'Dances With Wolves' actor arrested in Nevada sex abuse case

Las Vegas police on Tuesday arrested and raided the home of a former “Dances With Wolves” actor turned alleged cult leader accused of sexually assaulting young Indigenous girls during a period spanning two decades, according to police records obtained by The Associated Press.

Nathan Lee Chasing His Horse, who goes by Nathan Chasing Horse, was taken into custody in the afternoon near the North Las Vegas home he is said to share with his five wives. SWAT officers were seen outside the two-story home in the evening as detectives searched the property.

Known for his role as the young Sioux tribe member Smiles a Lot in the Oscar-winning Kevin Costner film, Chasing Horse gained a reputation among tribes across the United States and in Canada as a so-called medicine man who performed healing ceremonies and spiritual gatherings and, police allege, used his position to abuse young Native American girls.
