The mother of two brothers charged in the murder of a Chicago police officer has been arrested after scuffling with police and guards, kicking one of them, while trying to visit her son in the hospital, police said.
Evalena Flores was arrested at Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn just before 8:30 a.m. Tuesday after she ran down a hall and confronted Chicago police officers and security guards posted outside the room of Emonte Morgan, Oak Lawn police said.
Flores tried to push by them, demanding to see her son, and kicked one of the guards in the groin, police said. She was arrested and taken to the Oak Lawn police station.
Detectives sought felony charges but the Cook County state’s attorney’s office instead filed misdemeanor charges of battery, resisting a peace officer and criminal trespass, according to police.
