Mount Prospect Police Officer Sgt. Anthony "Big Tony" Lietzow charged with battery to a fellow police officer found not guilty

A longtime connected Mount Prospect police officer who had been charged with felony offenses stemming from a disturbance at his home was swiftly found not guilty by a McHenry County jury Thursday.

Anthony Lietzow had faced charges of aggravated battery to a police officer and aggravated domestic battery after police were called to his Huntley home last year following a night of drinking and a confrontation with a female relative.

Lietzow, 45, had already pleaded guilty to resisting arrest, but then was allowed to withdraw the plea because he didn't know the conviction would cost him his job.

In doing so, he risked a more serious felony conviction and possible prison time. The risk apparently paid off with his acquittal following a three-day trial, though a Mount Prospect police official said it remains uncertain if the department will still seek his dismissal.

perhaps the officer acquitted had to put up with hazing of the type that the old yrs back 006th dist, team gave out to their ''FELLOW''officers who worked the street, the only time in any dist,we ever heard a sgt. at roll call tell the watch not to give a tact team any cooperation or info,are you listening SGT,ROWAN from your computer in MOKENA, these asshole would grab your pinch right in front of you and the offenders,got to a point where we told our pinch that if the plain clothes tact team got them they would get beaten,they yelled and shouted that the uniforms arrested them,, go figure,,,,,,,

Lietzow is classic drunken wife-beater. Doesn't matter that he has various awards for work done on the job. Anyone who attacks his wife is total scum. I read somewhere that his daughter was home at the time, and she must have witnessed (or at least heard) dear-old dad strangling her mom.

Lietzow struggled with the cops who responded to the 911 call. If he weren't a cop himself, he would have gotten a lot worse.
