Bartender’s lawyer grills officer in police-beating case
(MCT) — CHICAGO — After she had been viciously beaten by a patron she knew as “Tony,” bartender Karolina Obrycka made it clear to the Chicago police officers responding to her 911 call that she believed her attacker was the “police.” She then wrote down his last name — or how she thought it was spelled — on a scrap of paper and pointed out that security cameras at the Northwest Side bar had likely captured the attack.
Yet none of that wound up in the officers’ report. On Tuesday, Obrycka’s lawyer grilled Officer Peter Masheimer about the missing details as he testified at a trial stemming from a lawsuit she brought against the city of Chicago and Anthony Abbate, the off-duty cop who attacked her.
