Description

Off-duty Chicago Police detective Joseph Frugoli is accused of killing two men when he allegedly plowed into a disabled car in a drunken-driving crash on the Dan Ryan Expressway early Friday walked out of court Sunday afternoon after posting $50,000 10 percent of his $500,000 bond. Friends of the victims are upset. Among those present at the Sunday bond hearing was Mario Lopez, the friend of one of the victims killed in the fiery Friday morning crash on the Dan Ryan. Lopez was inconsolable after hearing a judge announce the $500,000 bond for Frugoli. He screamed profanities and allegedly made threats of violence. As Lopez fumed, Cook County Sheriff's Police officers charged out of the Cook County Criminal Courthouse, at 2600 S. California Ave., and ran after him as he went across the street. Lopez put his hands behind his head. Officers brought Lopez to the ground and cuffed him. He was later released without charge. After Lopez's arrest, friends of both Cazares and Manzera said they were furious Frugoli's bond was so low. "If they were your kids, we'd be in prison. No bond at all," said one friend.
