Fox lake Illinois mourns slain hero in blue


August 27 2015

“Fox Lake Police Chief Michael Behan announced he is retiring less than a week after he was put on paid administrative leave during a village investigation into an altercation between an officer and a man who was arrested last year, according to a news release from the village.

According to the statement, Behan, 55, told the village board he had decided to retire this month. He will step down at the end of the week but will continue cooperating with the investigation, village officials said.

Fox Lake village administrator Anne Marrin said the village began investigating a December 2014 altercation between a 36-year-old man arrested for public intoxication and a Fox Lake police officer this month.

The officer, who the village has not named, was also put on paid administrative leave last week.

The officer was disciplined at the time but “the village has concerns with respect to how the incident was investigated, when it was investigated and how decisions regarding findings and discipline were reached,” Marrin said in a statement last week.”

Yep, heroes everyone
