51-year-old Kenneth Daniel Maschek of Chicago was disorderly at the Sheraton Hotel on Union Street late January 15th. Officers arrived and spoke with the complainant, who advised them that Maschek claimed to be a police officer, threw him to the ground using a hip toss, searched him by pulling his pants down, and detained him in the elevator. The complainant had an acquaintance with him who told officers that Maschek snatched his phone out of his hand. Maschek spoke with officers and told them that he subdued the individuals in the elevator because he thought they had a gun and were going to “shoot up the place.” Officers did not find evidence showing that they had a weapon, but the victim of the hip toss admitted to having loose bullets and a magazine. Maschek was visibly intoxicated and admitted to having “some beers.” Then, he told them that he only claimed to be a police officer because it was a two-on-one situation, and he wanted to intimidate them. The two citizens involved did not wish to prosecute, but Maschek was taken into custody for public intoxication and criminal impersonation of an officer.
