Crestwood cop questioned about disability

Questions have been raised about the status of a Crestwood police officer who accused a mother with leaving her child in a car alone. Forrest Wondolowski is a part-time Crestwood police officer who is currently on disability from his full-time job as a City of Chicago Fleet Management Department employee. In that position for Chicago, Wondolowski mainly does desk work.

Crestwood's mayor said he is not concerned about Wondolowski's status with the city of Chicago since heavy lifting is not a regular part of Crestwood police work.

Wondolowski confronted Treffly Coyne at a Wal-Mart after she allegedly left her sleeping two-year-old in her car to put money in a Salvation Army bucket. Coyne said she was never more than 30 feet from the car.

Charges were dropped against Coyne last week.
