Parolee charged with attacking off-duty cop in Wrigleyville

Wilson (Chicago Police Dept)
Bail is set at $500,000 for a 29-year-old parolee who’s accused of participating in an attack on an off-duty police officer in Wrigleyville last week.

Tremaine Wilson of the Grand Boulevard neighborhood is charged with aggravated battery of a police officer and reckless conduct in the incident, which played out on the southeast corner of Clark and Addison at 12:40AM on Wednesday.

An off-duty officer who intervened in a disturbance between a group of people on the street was sucker punched and knocked unconscious after announcing his position as a police officer, prosecutors said.

Holcomb (Chicago Police Dept)
The incident occurred beneath a 24-hour webcam that captured audio of the disturbance, the police officer’s arrival, and squeals of delight from some bystanders after he was knocked out.

Wilson was sentenced to 8 years in prison after pleading guilty to carjacking and theft in a 2010 case.

20-year-old Taquisha Holcomb of the Roseland neighborhood is charged with simple battery and pot possession in the incident. She is free on a $1,500 I-Bond.

  2. we have to keep catching these criminals on EVERY CRIME. It's the only way we are going to beat back this outrageous crime problem. We have people in this community who think criminals/ warrants have rights (privacy in shelters in Center on Halsted) over regular citizens bring that up at caps meetings

    1. I have when I used to work the south side. We had a chase, arrest and uuw. It was by happenstance though. The guy said 'man, I fucked up! I should've stayed my ass at home. We were going to Clark street tonight and now my ass gonna be sitting in county, damn.' I asked him what's up there. He replied with a specified type of "bitches." Lol. Clark street being Wriggleyville.

      Either way, think about it. It's a target rich environment for licks (robberies) and wilding. It's fun because the people are soft (not much of a fight because they're drunk or scared of not being politically correct). Think about it, if you were a predator would you go after an injured gazelle or a pack of lions? That's the thing people will never understand. This is the predation police have to deal with but we don't know how to any more.

    2. You really don't know that?
      This is why we are going through this. Open up your eyes people!
      We are considered easy targets!
      Trusting, nice, hard working, good people. These predators know this and are taking advantage of our compassion.

  4. In 2003 I lived in Chicago for 6 months. I enjoyed going to Wrigley on Saturday afternoons. Looks like things have changed for the worse. You always get what you vote for.

  5. Why do they waste the time to set these outrageous bails. They just get their hands slapped and never do any real time. Obviously he never sever time as he'd still be in jail if we do the math. Sigh.

    1. well it sends a small message, you won't be able to get out before your trial, sometimes months if not years, if you can't come up with your 10%

  6. I wonder what kind of sentence Wilson would have gotten today if he had pleaded guilty to carjacking and theft earlier THIS year.

  7. Welcome to the neighborhood Mr. Wilson. There are several centers that want you as a patron. And don't let at least one very serious felony conviction worry you since we welcome all criminals with open arms. Have fun terrorizing the people around here since we are sure you won't more than slap on the wrist by the great judges we have.

  9. The guy who runs The Center on Halsted was on channel 7 this morning, he was blaming the crime on youth homelessness. Sir, your group is to blame,we didn't have, as much, as we do since you opened your doors. He wants to move these people into housing to ruin more neighborhoods, they will never change. De-fund the COH.

  10. You can see why the cops chose to be "fetal". It's a game ya can't win with the catch and release system in place and the attitude toward cops. Thank the court system for letting down victims and taxpayers. On the way to 600 murders for the year, how many decent folks will decide to get out and let the gangsters and other assorted thugs have it.

  13. ummm..."Taquisha" ? ? Where do they come up with this s#^t ? ? ?

  14. "Sentenced to 8 years in prison...in 2010" Why was he out so soon?

  15. I have asked these thugs why they pick your neighborhood. It's pretty interesting. The number one reason is: you all have nice stuff. 2: you won't fight back. 3: if they stay in their neighborhood they have police on every other block (read the CPD violence reduction initiative). Good luck and be safe.

  16. Is Taquisha the hopefully ex-girlfriend of the man who was jumped and then stood up for the officer who intervened over her "objections?"

  17. First of all this is a lie! I was there. He didn't do anything but see his friend in trouble and went to help! Someone else hit that officer, which we didn't know who he was at the time, and because Tremaine didn't know the man who did hit him, and got away, the police charged him! They didn't want the truth cuz i told them i seen the whole thing and they told me to move around and shut up. No" let's get your info so we can interview you" nothing! It's because he was a cop. They should've attested the girlfriend and boyfriend that stayed the whole thing but he white so there! You listen to these false stories and run with it just like they want!

  21. Is Taquisha the (hopefully) ex-girlfriend of the young man who was jumped and who stood by the injured officer?

  22. So they still haven't apprehended the main suspect that crow hopped the officer... just his upstanding acquaintances so far? Shame.

  23. For all of these guys who get sentenced to 8 years and only serve 4, can we realease them in the communities of every single IL state legislator who write our laws? You know, for a change of pace? Maybe that will help the legislators understand the "serve only half your sentence rule" they wrote was a dumb fucking idea.
