OAK LAWN, Ill. — Members of the Arab American Action Network are holding a protest Wednesday night outside of the Oak Lawn Police Department before a police commission meeting.

The protest comes a little over a year since Hadi Abuatelah, 17, was beaten by Oak Lawnb police.

Officers pulled the teen over after they said they smelled marijuana coming from the car and the car was missing the front license plate.

As they searched Abuatelah, he ran from officers, who then tackled him to the ground, kicked him and beat him.

“They were holding his arms down and repeatedly bashing his head into the pavement,” Muhammad Sankari, AAAN lead organizer, said. “They broke his pelvis, caused internal bleeding in his brain, they fractured bones in his face.”

The incident was captured on cell phones by witnesses.

During the arrest, police said Abuatelah reached for a shoulder bag with a gun it in.

The teen spent a week in the hospital with injuries to his brain, pelvis and face.

One of the three officers involved, Patrick O’Donnell, was charged earlier this year and was in a Cook County court Wednesday morning for a status hearing.

He is charged with aggravated battery and official misconduct. He’s accused of punching the teen more than 10 times in the head during the arrest.

O’Donnell is still on administrative leave.

The other officers involved have not faced discipline or criminal charges.

Abuatelah’s family and supporters said they want the other officers charged and all of them to be fired.

“All three of them took part in the beating of that young man,” Sankari said. “All three need to be put on trail for that vicious crime against community.”

His parents have filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the officers involved.

Abuatelah was charged with illegally possessing a gun.

The case is still pending in juvenile court.

Minutes into the police commission meeting, police escorted a majority of the attendees out for disrupting the proceedings.

“Every community deserves the right to decide who polices their community and how the community is policed,” Kobi Guillory with the Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression, said.

Organizers are calling on Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul to open an independent investigation into the Oak Lawn Police Department.
