The Chicago Fraternal Order of Police union is being hit with complaints over a benefit planned this week at the police union headquarters for officer Joseph Frugoli, who is accused of crashing into a car while driving drunk on the Dan Ryan in April, killing two people. Officers are throwing the bash with invitations marked “10-1,” the radio call for an officer in need of assistance. It is not clear if it is BYOB.
The invitations are posted on the union website and calls on other officers “to assist Detective Joe Frugoli” by buying tickets at $50 a pop.
Frugoli was certainly in need of assistance when he hit a car with his Lexus SUV on the expressway: he had a blood-alcohol content was more than three times the legal limit. He then fled the accident that left the car in flames, killing Andrew Cazares, 23, and Fausto Manzera, 21.
I am not sure what Martha Stewart recommends for centerpieces at such a party, but flaming shots are a must for the drinks.
