Emanuel says he doesn't want to say much about the incident while it's under investigation, but complimented the vast majority of Chicago officers.

"We have a lot of good men and women in uniform throughout the police department who do things both on duty and off duty that carries both the spirit and being a public servant," Emanuel said.

The mayor and police department say the investigation of the officer is moving along quickly. We should learn soon if he will be disciplined.
