Top DUI Police Officer in Chicago Facing Accusations of Fake DUI Arrests

Comments (0)

Officer Richard Fiorito was awarded by the Illinois MADD organization for writing the most DUI tickets in a year, reportedly nearly 300 arrests each year.  Now answering federal civil suit involving 22 arrestees, Fiorito is under criminal investigation as well.  Following complaints about his conduct, Chicago police officials required Fiorito to use a dashboard camera in his cruiser.  The videos obtained by the dash cam are now being used in the law suit and the criminal investigation.  Fiorito is accused of targeting certain individuals and of lying under oath about the behavior and field sobriety test performance of the accused.  The motivation for such conduct is said to be the time-and-a-half pay his receives as a result of spending a lot of time in court testifying on his DUI cases.  Officer Fiorito is still on the job making DUI arrests.
