CHICAGO — A Chicago Lawn man accused of attacking a CTA bus driver and several passengers before one cop shot him and others zapped him with a stun gun was charged early Saturday, police said.
Ishmael Jamison, 28, of the 6600 block of South Sacramento Avenue, faces three counts of felony aggravated battery in connection with the incident near the 6200 block of South California Avenue, police said.
He also was charged with aggravated assault to a police officer and resisting arrest counts, both misdemeanors, police said.
Jamison is accused of battering and assaulting several people on a northbound bus in Marquette Park on Thursday, police said.
As Jamison was attacking the driver, a passenger left the bus and flagged down a passing police car with a uniformed officer inside, according the Chicago Tribune.
Jamison got off the bus as the officer approached him and yelled, "Stop! Police!", according to CBS Chicago.
Jamison disregarded the cop's orders and "aggressively advanced" toward the officer, police said.
The officer shot Jamison who continued to advance at him, according to cops.
Backup officers arrived and twice used a stun gun on Jamison, the Tribune reported.
Jamison was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center, where he remained hospitalized Saturday morning, police said. The injured passengers and bus driver also were taken to area hospitals, police said.
The Independent Police Review Authority is investigating the case, police said.
