Chicago Tribune - A deputy fire chief in Chicago Ridge was put on administrative leave after being charged with breaking into the Tinley Park home of a neighbor in the middle of the night and attacking her, officials said. Gary M. Swiercz, 49, of the 8100 block of West 168th Place in Tinley Park, has been charged with attempted murder, home invasion, aggravated unlawful restraint, aggravated attempted criminal sexual assault, and residential burglary, according to a press release from the Tinley Park Police Department.

Swiercz appeared in Cook County Circuit Court Sunday where he was ordered held in lieu of $150,000 bail. Swiercz allegedly broke into the home of a woman in his condo building early Saturday morning while wearing a ski mask and possessing a folding knife, duct tape, an 8-inch sexual device and lubricant, said Assistant Cook County State’s Atty. Dan Calandriello.

Not to sound insensitive but it’s kinda unfair that the cops charged this guy with every possible crime associated with all the tools he brought with him to break into this woman’s house with, right? Attempted murder 1 for the blade, home invasion and residential burglary for the B&E, sexual assault for the lube and the 8 inch purple Lexington Steele dick piece in his back pocket. I mean it just seems like overkill is all. Maybe set it up like the “Pick 2″ meal at Panera Bread: Hit him with the murder rap and the B&E and throw the dildo out as inadmissible or something. I mean Gary M. Swiercz is a fire official, a public servant, who had one little slip up and broke into a woman’s house carrying a lethal weapon and a knife. The least we could do is save him from some potential embarrassment.
