Officer pulled over school bus to deliver son his lunch, complaint alleges

According to the Chicago Tribune, Lt. Brian Keller has been accused in a police report of using the emergency lights on his unmarked black Dodge Charger to conduct the traffic stop of the school bus about 7 a.m. on Nov 12.

The report indicates that the bus was en route to a school in Johnsburg, about 60 miles north of Chicago. Johnsburg is in McHenry County and Keller works for the Lake County Sheriff’s Office, meaning the bus would have been outside of his jurisdiction at the time of the stop.
