CHICAGO — A jailed former Chicago police officer who has yet to be indicted after a 2007 arrest on charges he ordered a hit on another cop was just flagged for making threats in the downtown jail where he's been housed for about four years.

Jerome Finnigan, 48, once a member of Chicago's now-disbanded Special Operations Section, was allegedly involved with "threatening bodily harm" while at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, according to a letter from prison officials to a federal judge.
