  • COURTESY OF JAMES BRADY
  • Megan Rieke was left bruised after a run-in with an angry Crestwood cop, her lawyer says.

“On Labor Day weekend in 2014, Megan Rieke’s mother, a retired schoolteacher, threw a party at her home in Crestwood. After the other guests left, Rieke and her mother and brother sat around on the back patio, listening to the radio.

That’s when a cop car pulled up. Around 1:50 a.m., the officer, Kevin McFarland, shone a spotlight on the family. And then he gave them an order: Go inside, he said, or he would “take everyone to jail.”

After Rieke’s mother had a short conversation with the cop, the three agreed to go in. But Rieke couldn’t resist a parting gesture: She silently flipped the officer the bird.”
