KARMA POLICE: Accused Of Making Fake "Officer In Distress" Call, Former CAPS Volunteer Catches A Break

A former civilian volunteer for the local community policing office who’s accused of calling 911 with a false report of an officer in distress has been accepted into the state’s Deferred Prosecution Program, court records show.

Elbrecht (Chicago Police Dept)
Patrick Elbrecht, 44, was charged with one count of felony reckless conduct after witnesses told police that he called 911 from a local bar on December 30 and used the words “officers need assistance” and the phrase “10-1,” which is police radio shorthand for an officer who needs help, according to court records.

The state has now agreed to postpone prosecution under a program that gives certain first-time felony defendants the opportunity to see charges dropped if they keep their noses clean for a year.

Participants are taken to trial if they violate the program’s 3-page agreement during postponement. Among the rules:
• Defendants may not violate any criminal law anywhere in the United States
• Defendants may not possess deadly weapons including guns and knives
• Defendants many not possess marijuana, methamphetamine, any controlled substance, or any other drug not authorized by a prescription.
Elbrecht is due back in court next Wednesday.

  1. Omg, it should've said no alcohol, too. Hell, he's a drunk. Thats the problem. Ask Dram, Anvil or any of the few bars he's still allowed in. Talking about a motion to fix. Was Walsh involved?

    1. Alcohol is a controlled substance.

    2. Alcohol and tobacco are not controlled substances. They are excluded from the federal Controlled Substances Act signed into law by President Nixon.

      The term "controlled substance" means a drug or other substance, or immediate precursor, included in schedule I, II, III, IV, or V of part B of this subchapter. The term does not include distilled spirits, wine, malt beverages, or tobacco, as those terms are defined or used in subtitle E of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986.

      —21 U.S.C. § 802(6)[24]

  2. Welcome to Cook County. Anywhere else, like Lake County, Will County, Dupage County would have given him serious jail time for a Felony Charge Guilty Plea which really means he legally could of served MORE than a year in custody for this FELONY. But lovely Cook County, and pathetic S/A Anita Alvarez, who is supposed to be an advocate and attorney for victims, instead gives him this pathetic, laughable light "stay out of trouble" sentence. Instead, he and others criminals and defendants know the system, and this will continue, and get worse. Cook County is the best place to be a criminal because no one cares, the judges, state prosectors, Sheriff Dart. No one fights for the victims any longer, only finding excuses for criminal's behavior, EVERYTHING in our system favors defendants. If a cop got in a fatal accident responding to this bogus emergency call, this clown would have had just a slap on the wrist too, just like this sentence. If you are looking for justice, go outside of Cook County, or move to Texas, because you won't find true Justice in Chicago.

  6. Walsh almost certainly has something to do with this .... but more likely a certain business owner on Halsted St was more instrumental in arranging what basically amounts to a free pass. I've heard of even two more "Halsted mafia" who closed ranks to protect this guy. Yet one more reason to hate what used to be a great neighborhood.

  8. What a kick in the face to justice in Chicago. He has been at large for about 9 - 10 years and this is all that he gets. Was Alerman Tom at his hearing ??? I guess not. He has , according to him, a great "friendship" with Tom. Officer Walsh and the Commander. What about putting him on work release and writing tickets for not shoveling your sidewalks. Oh, no, I am sure he would pull a scam on that too . . . . Give me $25.00 dollars and I will make this ticket go away.

    1. He's a liar about Tunney. I witnessed it firsthand. When asked, Tunney had no idea who he was. The guy, Elbrecht, is a goof and you can't believe anything that comes out of his mouth.

    2. I've never been in that situation but if asked if I knew someone that did what this guy recently did, I'd probably say no too.

    3. "When asked, Tunney had no idea who he was."

      You call this mope a liar and you believe an Aldercreature!? That is HILARIOUS!

  9. Didn't he impersonate an officer in addition to making a false distress call for an officer? I know the 19th district has more pressing issues, but this d-bag should be forced to do some community service by picking up garbage on our streets.

  10. Maybe he is in rehab?

  11. Tunney would drop his sister to the curb if he thought he could save his hide.
