|Richardson (Chicago Police Dept)|
When an officer asked what it was, Richardson said it was “just a flashlight.” But when pressed as to whether it was a Taser, Richardson allegedly responded, "Yes, it’s a Taser, but I can have it. It’s mine.”
Cops found a second stun baton and a smaller stun gun when they searched the vehicle for impoundment.
Police say Richardson admitted to buying the weapons on Amazon for protection. He said he “has pulled it out before but never used it on anyone,” according to court records.
He’s charged with unlawful use of a weapon.
