A veteran Chicago Police officer is expected in court today, accused of ordering women during two separate traffic stops to flash him and, in one case, to "do a little dance" without her panties.
Mike Allegretti, who works in the Albany Park District, was charged Thursday with bribery and official misconduct, a law enforcement source said.
The incidents occurred in November 2004 and May 2005, the source said.
In the November incident, Allegretti allegedly made a traffic stop on the 4700 block of West Irving after the woman ran a red light. The woman didn't have a driver's license or proof of insurance and she admitted to Allegretti to being an illegal alien.
At that point, Allegretti allegedly told the woman: "Flash me." The woman refused.
Later, after Allegretti had arrested the woman and taken her to the Albany Park station, he allegedly told her he wouldn't write her a ticket for having no insurance if she flashed him.
The woman again refused, but did open her jacket, the source said.
Allegretti then told the woman to return the following day to the location of the traffic stop, where she was to dance for him without her underwear on, the source said.
The woman didn't return and called police.
During the May traffic stop on the 3900 block of West Eddy, Allegretti told another woman to show him her breasts after he learned she was driving on a ticket, but didn't have the ticket with her, the source said.
Allegretti then allegedly told the woman to follow him to a nearby alley, but she refused and instead told him to give her a ticket. Allegretti allegedly then told her to leave. The woman immediately called police, the source said.
Allegretti was taken off patrol duty a day after the May incident, the source said.
