Man Pointed BB Gun At Red Line Passenger's Head, Prosecutors Say

A West Loop man is accused of pointing a replica firearm at a Rogers Park man’s head as the two rode a Red Line train into the Addison station.

Jackson (L) and Underwood (Chicago Police Department)
Cops met with the victim at the Addison station while other officers caught up with 24-year-old Antoine Jackson outside of the Belmont station, according to court records.

As officers approached, Jackson “was screaming ‘I only have a fucking BB gun. You can’t lock me up for that,’” police said.

Contrary to his legal opinion, Jackson was indeed locked up for that and he’s charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possessing a replica firearm - BB gun.

A woman who was with Jackson is also charged in the case. 20-year-old Jasmine Underwood of Calumet City faces one count of simple assault, according to court records.

  3. "Contrary to his legal opinion"

    I laughed, than wanted to cry.

    Yes, these criminals seem to think if they completely deny it, or fail to actually kill someone, they're completely innocent. There are two very different realities in this city. The population who remains accountable for their actions, and the population who has no concept of what that means.
