Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson fired; Mayor claims ‘series of ethical lapses’

Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson was unexpectedly fired Monday just weeks before he was set to retire, ending a rocky, three-year tenure as head of a department marked by controversial police shootingscourt-supervised reforms and its handling of high-profile arrests.

But in announcing his firing, Mayor Lori Lightfoot suggested it was Johnson’s personal failures when he was found asleep behind the wheel of his car on Oct. 17 and for what he told investigators that played into the decision to end his employment.
