Anna Kochakian was arrested after allegedly ripping down a photo of slain officer Ella French at a memorial for her. She reportedly proceeded to wad it up and then chuck it into a trash can on the Chicago subway.
This week, officers were finally able to obtain a warrant for Kochakian’s arrest. She is facing a charge for defacement of a police memorial, which is a Class 4 felony charge. Kochakian was arrested at her home around 10 a.m., reported the police.
“The offender was arrested using the handcuffs of Officer Carlos Yanez Jr., her partner,” Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown announced in a tweet. “This was a moment of justice for Ella, her family, the Chicago Police Department and all those who knew and loved Ella.”
Yanez Jr. was hit in the head with two bullets during the shootout that claimed French’s life. While he survived, the injuries he sustained may leave him disabled for the rest of his life.
Officer French’s legacy will not be tarnished by the detestable acts committed by this offender. Despite the actions committed by this individual, her legacy and all she stood for continues to live on. We will #NeverForget what she did to protect Chicago. https://t.co/dycUFZq7gp

Monty and Eric Morgan, brothers, have been arrested in connection to the shooting.
According to authorities, Monty Morgan allegedly began firing on officers during a routine traffic stop in August 2021. It was then French was fatally shot, and Yanez Jr. was struck in the head. A third officer was shot in the stomach after attempting to return fire on the men. Morgan is facing the first-degree murder of a peace officer and attempted murder charges.
Eric Morgan was reportedly driving the car at the time this happened. He is looking at firearms and obstruction charges.
Kochakian is due in court Thursday for her bond hearing.
Twitter was pleased with the arrest:

She should have thrown herself in the trash. Hopefully, she will receive the full measure of punishment for her crime.

Thank you officer French for your integrity and service🇺🇸
To all the haters & trolls, if someone showed this level of disrespect toward a memorial of someone you cared for how would you feel…

Took a while – enjoy that charge Anna. Funny how posting that video of your actions to your own social media did you in…
