$2 Million Bail For Cop Charged In Fatal DUI Hit And Run

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) -- A judge has set bail at $2 million for an off-duty Chicago police officer facing reckless homicide, DUI and hit-and-run charges after allegedly striking and killing a boy riding his bicycle.

Richard Bolling's accused of killing 13-year-old Trenton Booker early Friday morning on the South Side.

Relatives say Booker sneaked out with friends after going to bed. Family members have said they didn't realize he wasn't home until police told them he was dead.

Bolling remains in jail and is due in court again Tuesday.

The police department has said the 39-year-old officer has been relieved of his police powers and is under internal investigation.
