Oak Lawn Cops Arrest UIC Police Officer
21 November 2007
OAK LAWN - A 22-year veteran of the University of Illinois at Chicago police force was placed on administrative leave pending an internal investigation after his arrest Saturday by Oak Lawn police, according to authorities. Oak Lawn police reportedly first encountered Lt. George Ruckrich on Friday about 2:30 a.m. after receiving a 911 call from a 41-year-old woman who said there was an intruder in her home... Police described the woman as Ruckrich's ex-girlfriend. Officers responding to the call stopped Ruckrich in the area but could not place him in the woman's home and let him go, according to Oak Lawn Division Chief Mike Kaufmann, who said an investigation into the incident is ongoing. Police received another call from the woman's home Saturday about 6:15 p.m. after her 20-year-old son reported seeing a man peering into his bedroom window. Once again, officers responded and stopped Ruckrich in the area. This time, he was identified by the son as the man who had been looking into his window, according to police. [AND WHAT?] On Monday, a judge dismissed a charge of domestic-related disorderly conduct against Ruckrich as a result of what Kaufmann called a "technicality." Late Tuesday afternoon, Kaufmann reported police were planning to meet with prosecutors Wednesday to revise the charge to simple disorderly conduct... The woman received an order of protection against Ruckrich on Tuesday...
