Cook County, Illinois Attorney Kim Foxx (D) was the subject of a domestic disturbance call from her husband, according to police documents and multiple news reports.

According to police filings prepared by the Flossmoor Police Department, the husband accused the chief prosecutor overseeing the greater Chicago area of ​​being “physically aggressive” and that “he just wanted it to stop.” However, police wrote they found no physical evidence to support the husband’s claims that the prosecutor had slapped him on the “left cheek”.

No arrests were made.

A copy of the police report posted on the CWBChicago website says officers were dispatched to the Foxx family home in Flossmoor, Illinois at 10:09 p.m. on Saturday, June 4. The police report was also received and/or reported by ChicagoTribunethe Chicago Sun Timesthe New York PostFOX News and the Chicago television networks WMAQ, WGN, WLS, WFLD and WBBM, among other news organizations.

Husband Kelly Foxx called 911 to “report a domestic worker with his wife,” the police document said. Responding officers were told there had been no injuries “yet” when they traveled to the Foxx home.

This is how the events unfolded according to the wording of the police report. The document was written by a Officer Cagle:

Kelley and Kimberly were standing on the front steps of the house when we arrived. I got out of my squad car and activated my body-worn camera. Sergeant Tencza walked away from the house with Kimberly and stopped at a vehicle parked in the driveway. Kelley was still standing near the front door of the house, talking to her Officer Estrada. I walked over to Officer Estrada to hear the complainant’s explanation of what had happened. Kelley explained that Kimberly got angry at something he posted on Facebook. Kimberly asked him to leave and he refused. Kimberly then got physical. He explained that Kimberly prevented him from leaving a bathroom. Kimberly grabbed his collar and threw down his video game controller. He tried to turn on the TV and Kimberly snatched the controller from his hand and threw the controller.

Kimberly was close enough to hear Kelley. As he explained what happened, I could hear Kimberly say, “All of this is true.” Kelley went on to explain that she hit him. I asked where he was hit and he said, “Left cheek” as he raised his hand to point to his left cheek. I used my flashlight to see his left cheek. I saw no evidence of his claiming to have been beaten. There was no redness or swelling on his face. I explained that I didn’t see any marks on him and he replied that he just wanted to be left alone. I asked Kelley if he felt safe in the house. Kelley explained he wanted to make sure someone understood what was happening here. I asked him to explain what is happening here and he said she was being physically aggressive. He added that he just wanted it to stop.

Officers then attempted to speak to Kim Foxx and the couple’s daughter.

Sergeant Tencza spoke to Kimberly, who told him that she and her husband were having an argument and she wanted him to leave. Sergeant Tencza walked over to where I was standing and spoke to Kelley. He reiterated that he just wants it to stop. “She can’t come into my personal room and lay hands on me.” Officer Estrada went inside to speak to her 19-year-old daughter [name redacted] about what happened to the incident. [The daughter] stated she heard a disagreement but could not say what was going on and saw nothing.

Kelley explained to me that he had to pick up his other daughter from her job at Culver. Kelley left and I spoke to Kimberly. Kimberly explained that she laid her hands on Kelley, but only to lead him out of the house. She never hit him. I asked Kimberly if she felt safe at home, and she said, “I mean, he’s not crazy.” Both Kimberly and Kelley said they’ve been together for over 20 years and things have never been physical. Kimberly expressed that she felt Kelley called the police just to hurt her. I have seen no evidence to support an arrest in this incident. Neither Kimberly nor Kelley decided to leave the house for the evening. I have provided separate fact sheets on domestic violence to Kimberly and Kelley. This is the first time Flossmoor Police have responded to a domestic call involving Kimberly and Kelley Fox [sic].

That’s what the report says Richard Pick, “an investigator with Kimberly Foxx’s law enforcement unit,” went to the police department and provided his contact information in case the local police wanted to investigate further. The report goes on to say that Officer Estrada, Officer CardenSergeant Tencza and the document’s author (Officer Cagle) all wore “body-worn cameras.”

Chicago CBS affiliate WBBM told reporters Jermont Terry had “digged all week” to find out what really happened during the incident, but Terry reportedly encountered significant obstacles in his search for information. The WBBM report says the Flossmoor Police Chief failed to respond quickly to requests for open records for the 911 call, body camera footage and police report. Eventually, the department released the paper report cited above, but refused to release the body camera footage because the parties involved allegedly need “privacy,” WBBM stated.

“This is a personal family matter, and we ask that you show respect and privacy to our family,” both Kelley and Kim Foxx said in a joint statement to several of the above Chicago-area newsrooms.

WBBM said prosecutors issued a similarly worded letter: “This is a personal family matter. Please allow DA Foxx and her family respect and privacy.”

Website CWBChicago said it learned “[a]after close of business on Friday” that James P Roache, the head of the investigative office of the public prosecutor’s office, had “suddenly resigned”. The site didn’t explain if — or if — the resignation had anything to do with the domestic call. Roache is not named in the Flossmoor police report as she has some role in the case.

Under Illinois law (750 Ill. Comp. Stat. 60/303 to be precise), written police reports are mandatory when officers are called to investigate possible domestic disturbances. Here is the statute:

Sec. 303. Reports from Law Enforcement Officials.

(a) Any law enforcement officer investigating a suspected incident of abuse, neglect or exploitation between family members or household members must prepare a written police report of any bona fide allegation and the ordering of such an investigation. The police report must include the victim’s details of the frequency and severity of previous instances of abuse, neglect, or exploitation by the same family or household member, and the number of previous calls to the police to prevent such further abuse, neglect, or exploitation.

(b) Any police report prepared under this Section will be recorded and compiled as a domestic crime within the meaning of Section 5.1 of the Criminal Identification Act.

Another section of Illinois law gives officers significant latitude in investigating allegations domestically. Arrests are only required “as appropriate” under Section 304 of the above Act. Police departments are also required to promulgate written policies on how to handle domestic calls and to train officers on a specific schedule on how to deal with such matters, under Section 301.1 of the Act.

This was announced by a spokesman for the Foxx office Chicago Sun Times the if Police should escalate the report of domestic disturbance to prosecutors led by Foxx. then “Conflicts would be referred to the Chief Ethics Officer, who would make a recommendation based on the code of conduct” on how the matter would develop.
