CHICAGO – Prosecutors say a veteran Chicago police commander accused of misconduct chased a suspect into an abandoned home, stuck a gun down his throat and held a stun gun to his groin.

Assistant Cook County State's Attorney Lauren Freeman says DNA found on the gun is a match for the suspect who alleges he was abused during the January 2013 arrest.

Fifty-two-year-old Glenn Evans appeared in court Thursday on charges of aggravated battery and official misconduct. He was stripped of his police powers this week. He's been a Chicago police officer for 28 years.

Defense attorney Laura Morask denied the charges and said investigators have never come to Evans for his version of events.

The officer was released without having to post bond. He left the courtroom without speaking to reporters.
