Live Updates: Chicago Protests and Unrest

Head of Chicago’s police board said he was hit by police during protest

The head of Chicago’s police board said he was one of several people struck by Chicago police during a confrontation with protesters on Sunday.

Ghian Foreman filed a complaint with the city’s Civilian Office of Police Accountability about the incident, which occurred during a protest sparked by the police killing of George Floyd.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot on Friday said what happened to Foreman is “unacceptable.” She said she had urged Foreman to file the complaint. In a statement issued through the police board, Foreman described himself as a “victim of police aggression.” He noted that he was not protesting when he was struck.
