BLOWIN' IT: Teen Who Robbed Rahm's Son Now Facing Crack Distribution Charges

Payne (Cook Co. Sheriff's Dept)
Phillip Payne, the Uptown teenager who recently pleaded guilty to robbing Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel's son, has been arrested again—his second arrest since turning 18 on January 30th.

Payne is charged with possessing 15 grams of suspected crack cocaine with intent to deliver and criminal trespass to state-supported land after police say they found him with bags of drugs in an Uptown Chicago Housing Authority building on Easter Sunday. He’s free on $10,000 bond.

Cops were following up on an April 5 CHA complaint of "non-residents trespassing" in an apartment at 1265 W. Leland when they allegedly found Payne seated on a couch next to a table where "several small blue baggies and a clear plastic bag containing a white substance” were laid out. While other "non-residents" fled the scene upon the officers’ arrival, Payne allegedly threw a bag containing a white substance out of the apartment window.

Last December, Zach Emanuel told police that he had been beaten and robbed by two men as he had a phone conversation with his college counselor at 10PM on a Friday night near the family home. Payne, who was 17 at the time, pleaded guilty to the crime in juvenile court on March 9. No one else has been charged in the attack.

Payne was also arrested on February 6 after he allegedly provided a fake name to officers who stopped him for investigation in Uptown. Prosecutors dropped the charge of obstructing identification four days before Payne was arrested on the crack charges.

  1. So Rahm's son was "tuned up" over more than we originally thought.

  2. A fine, outstanding, upwardly mobile young citizen, who no doubt got caught at the exact precise moment when he was turning his life around ... and I'm sure he will cost the taxpayers quite a pretty penny in 2015 and beyond.

  3. Luckily boy Rahm was talking to his college counselor so he wouldn't have been involved in any potential purchases from this punk.

  6. Hmm. Makes you think, eh? Was the robbing of Rahm's son really a "robbery" or a "deal gone bad?"

  8. How many times does this kid have to get arrested before he goes to jail ?.....Are they waiting for him to kill someone?

    1. Apparently so. And sadly, murderers get out of prison all the time and go on to kill again.

      What ever happened to three strikes and your out? Seems these POS get arrested, receive probation or a tiny sentence, then get out to do it all again. What is wrong with our criminal justice system? It's very broken and apparently, no judge has ever been a victim of a crime or else they'd hand out appropriate sentences for these losers.
