CHICAGO (WLS) -- After a brief standoff with police Saturday night in Chicago, an 18-year-old was arrested in connection with the carjacking of an off-duty Illinois State Police trooper, according to Cicero police.

On Monday, the trooper's personal vehicle, with her personal weapon inside, were taken by three men in Cicero, police said.
