A Chicago police commander accused of shoving a gun inside a suspect’s mouth while holding a Taser to his groin has been acquitted of felony charges.

Glenn Evans, 53, was found not guilty of aggravated battery and official misconduct on Monday by a Cook County Circuit Court judge, the New York Times reports.

Prosecutors said Evans threatened to kill Rickey Williams in 2013 after he saw a gun in the suspect’s hand and pursued him into a nearby house, according to the newspaper. Evans found Williams inside a closet and threatened to kill him if he didn’t say where he hid the weapon.

The police commander then allegedly stuck his gun inside Williams’ mouth and pressed a Taser against the man’s groin. Evans was charged in August 2014, the Times reported.
