Mayor Gresk on city bullying incident: 'Wheaton is not immune'
WHEATON – A week after a police investigation involving a case of bullying in a Wheaton city department came to light, officials said that the city addressed the allegations and is ready to move on.
An investigation by the Chicago Tribune delved into a case regarding a city employee who had suffered workplace bullying that "was tolerated and ignored for years."
The employee endured taunts, abuse and a case of alleged assault involving a glow stick that city officials deemed a misdemeanor battery, according to the police reports uncovered by the Tribune. An official police investigation earlier this year determined that there was some degree of bullying, but no charges were pressed due to the unwillingness of the victim to do so and because the stories told by those involved were conflicted.
