'Fowl'-up with gun could send ex-Melrose Park police chief back to prison

Sep 21, 2018 - Chicago Sun-Times

Convicted in a racketeering and extortion scheme in 2009 and sent to prison, former Melrose Park police Chief Vito Scavo has run afoul of the law again - this time because of, well, fowl.

And he could end up being sent back to prison as a result.

But now Scavo, 70, is facing felony charges that include unlawful possession of a weapon by a felon and possession of a weapon without a firearm owner's identification card, according to Kendall County State's Attorney Eric Weis.
