Ill. town, cop sued over rape of drunken teen girl

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. - Blind drunk on vodka, the teenage girl had to be held upright by the young men she was drinking with as she slumped head-down, eyes closed behind a suburban apartment complex.
But an Arlington Heights cop called to deal with the underage boozers let a 20-year-old felon and two drunken teenage boys carry the girl away without asking questions - and minutes later officers in neighboring Mount Prospect caught the males raping her in a laundry room, a lawsuit filed Tuesday alleges.
