Flossmoor, IL – Police responded to a domestic incident at the suburban Chicago home of Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx last weekend after she and her husband had an altercation that turned physical.
Officers responded to the home of Kelley and Kim Foxx at about 10:09 p.m. on June 4 after Kelley Foxx called 911 and reported an incident, WMAQ reported.
The police report said Kelley Foxx told officers that his wife got angry “about something that was posted on Facebook that he did.”
He told police that when Kim Foxx asked him to leave their marital home, he refused, WMAQ reported.
Police said Kelley Foxx said that was when things “became physical” and his wife blocked him in a bathroom.
The police report said Kelley Foxx told them the state’s attorney “grabbed his collar and threw down his video game controller. He tried to turn on the TV and Kimberly snatched the controller out of his hand and threw the controller,” according to WMAQ.
The officer wrote that Kim Foxx confirmed “all that is true,” according to the police report.
Kelley Foxx told officers that his wife had slapped him across the face, WMAQ reported.
But when the officers checked the man’s face, he “did not observe any indicators to support his claim of being struck,” according to the police report.
Authorities said that Kelley Foxx told police that he just wanted “someone to understand what was happening here,” WMAQ reported.
Kelley Foxx told officers that Kim Foxx was “being physically aggressive” and he just wanted it to stop, the police report read.
The state’s attorney denied having slapped her husband but told officers she put her hands on him to “help guide him out of the house,” WMAQ reported.
When police asked Kim Foxx if she felt safe staying in the home with Kelley Foxx, she said she did.
“I mean he’s not crazy,” the prosecutor told officers.
The couple told officers that they had been together for more than 20 years and that this was their first physical altercation, WMAQ reported.
The controversial state’s attorney told police that she thought her husband had called 911 just to hurt her.
Neither of them chose to leave the home after the incident and no arrests were made, according to WMAQ.
Kelley and Kim Foxx released a joint statement on June 10.
“This is a personal family matter, and we ask that you provide our family with respect and privacy,” the statement read.
