Fired Chicago police chief found slumped over in his SUV was out drinking with woman not his wife

I was always suspicious about the "retirement" of Chicago's police chief. Mayor Lori Lightfoot yesterday fired him.

From WGN-TV:
During a press conference Monday, Lightfoot told reporters she had reviewed the inspector general's report of the incident, as well as video, and was left with no choice but to fire Johnson.

“I saw things that were inconsistent with what Mr. Johnson had told me personally and what he revealed to members of the public,” she said.

Sources said the city inspector general's office obtained video of Johnson drinking for a few hours on the evening of Oct. 16 with a woman who was not his wife at the Ceres Cafe, a popular restaurant and bar at the Chicago Board of Trade building.

Later that night around 12:30 a.m. on Oct. 17, Johnson was spotted slumped over the wheel of his black SUV near his Bridgeport home.
Johnson blamed his dozing off on a mix up with medication.

Two months ago Johnson refused to attend a speech by President Donald Trump at police chiefs convention held in Chicago, citing Chicago "values."
