(Chicago Sun Times) — The Chicago Police Department is reviewing a memo it got from the FBI involving a federal interview of a top police official, sources said Thursday. The review focuses on new Englewood District Cmdr. Anthony Carothers.
He’s the brother of Ald. Isaac “Ike” Carothers (29th), who was sentenced June 24 to 28 months in prison after pleading guilty to corruption charges. Isaac Carothers, a former deputy Streets and Sanitation commissioner, chaired the City Council’s Police and Fire Committee and was one of Mayor Daley’s staunchest supporters.
Anthony Carothers was promoted from lieutenant to commander on July 16.
