State Police reviewing 911 disturbance at home of Moline Police Captain

Illinois State Police say they are still looking into the circumstances surrounding a 9-1-1 call for help at the home of a high-ranking Moline Police officer on New Year’s Day.

Moline Police responded to the 9-1-1 call about an “alleged disturbance” at the home of Capt. Jerry Patrick and his wife Jill just before 1 a.m. on January 1st after celebrating with friends on New Year’s Eve.

Illinois State Police Master Sgt. Chris Endress says the case has been turned over to his agency for review. He says no one was arrested and no new information will be released until an investigation is completed next week and turned over to the Rock Island County States Attorneys office.

Moline Police issued a brief release on the incident yesterday with all inquiries referred to ISP.

In 2004, Patrick was placed on paid leave after an incident in the parking lot of the Holiday Inn in Moline involving his former wife and a former East Moline police officer.

A 9-1-1 call at the time reported that a woman was screaming, “saying her husband was trying to run her over.”

According to police reports at the time, Patrick drove his car directly at his ex-wife and the other man, got out of his car and started a bloody fistfight, drove off to the ex-wife’s house and then hid in her garage.

A lieutenant at the time and head of the SWAT team, Patrick’s fellow officers blocked off the street and called for negotiators.

He was later taken home by a friend and fellow officer.

No charges were filed in that incident. Patrick was later promoted to Captain on the department.

A spokesperson for the Moline Police Department says Capt. Patrick is currently on vacation and scheduled back to work Monday.

    “No charges were filed in that incident. Patrick was later promoted to Captain on the department.”

    Am I the only one getting the impression that some sort of corruption or scandal is going on? He ran his vehicle into his ex wife, and beat the other man (a former (or at the time?) police officer, and beat him up…and he got off Scott free and got a promotion? What?

    Hey Minor.. You need to stay on this one and keep asking for answers.. Don’t let them sweep you under the rug too.

    had that been any ordinary citizen driving while intoxicated to run someone over, assaulting someone, driving intoxicated to someones home and barricading yourself in there garage so swat has to come out and negotiate with you while blocking off the area for hours can you imagine the list of charges? and there were NONE filed. good to see sgt endress dept at ill state police will be handling the investigation. his dad happened to be a vic endress a career officer with the Moline police dept. the good old boy network at its finest. will be tough to sweep this one under the rug. sssshhhhhhhh.

    This is utterly ridiculous. Anyone else should get charged with what, attempted murder, assault, etc…. Who is this guy and why is he still on the force? Maybe all of us that lives in Moline should write letters and demand he be let go from the Moline police department. I’m starting mine right now, if the police think thy are above the law, it almost makes me scared in my own home.

    I know Jerry and Jill, they are both good people and Jerry is a fine officer. At this point, we do not know the reason for the call, the details, or even who called the police. Please wait until you know more before condemning him.

    That’s the point of everyone’s disgust Denny is the reason will never come out just like 2004. Good people or not any regular joe citizen in 2004 would have been facing serious charges. Cops don’t follow the law they just enforce it.
