The news is out: [A Chicago police officer was charged Wednesday with attempted murder for firing his gun at a man while drunk and off-duty in October 2020.
Joseph Cabrera, 38, was previously charged with aggravated discharge of a firearm and disorderly conduct, but was hit with the additional attempted first-degree murder count on Wednesday in a grand jury indictment, the Chicago Tribune reported.
He is now also charged with false reporting and obstruction of justice, according to the Tribune.
Prosecutors say Cabrera fired a single bullet at an unidentified man during an Oct. 13 fight and then lied in his initial report.]
The stories keep getting more sordid by the day.
