Officials say a former Chicago police lieutenant has been arrested in Florida on charges he lied about the mistreatment of a suspect two decades ago.
The U.S. attorney's office in Chicago says 60-year-old Jon Burge was arrested Tuesday in Apollo Beach, Fla. A federal indictment accuses Burge of perjury and obstruction of justice.
Burge was fired from the department in 1993 after the Chicago Police Board found he tortured a suspect in the killing of a police officer into giving a confession. But he has not previously been charged with a crime and has continued to receive a pension.
The federal indictment accuses him of lying when he denied he and other detectives had mistreated a suspect in 1987.
