Police are investigating claims that an off-duty Chicago Police officer pulled a gun on an anti-abortion activist Wednesday morning outside a Planned Parenthood clinic in Aurora.
Rachelle Crile, 31, a member of the Pro-Life Action League, was distributing anti-abortion literature outside Planned Parenthood, at 3051 E. New York St., Wednesday when she approached a vehicle with a man and a woman inside.
The driver of the vehicle, a 41-year-old Chicago Police officer, told Aurora police that he flashed his badge at Crile, who then backed off.
But Crile, of Naperville, said the off-duty officer pointed a handgun at her. She said she put her hands up and backed away, and the couple then drove over to the clinic and went inside.
