    BRANDON PEGUES, 28, of Riverdale, and AMBER L. PELTZER, 28, of Lansing, are each charged with one count of illegal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Pegues and Peltzer were arrested separately early Sunday morning by Chicago Police Officers who were investigating reports of various malfeasances and unrest in the downtown area of the city. A city of Chicago curfew took effect at 9:00 p.m. Saturday, and the defendants were arrested nearly four hours later. According to the charges, Pegues was arrested near the 800 block of South Federal Street after officers observed a loaded semiautomatic handgun fall from his waistband. Peltzer was arrested near the 1600 block of South Michigan Avenue after officers observed her peering out of a bar that had its glass front door shattered, the complaint states. She was later taken into custody while in possession of a loaded handgun, the complaint states. Pegues and Peltzer were previously convicted of criminal felonies and were not lawfully allowed to possess a firearm. Initial court appearances in U.S. District Court in Chicago have not yet been scheduled.

    Looks like it's time to defund the police in Chitown too.
