An anti- abortion activist says an off-duty Chicago police officer threatened her with a gun Wednesday while he was in a vehicle outside a Planned Parenthood clinic in Aurora.
But Aurora police say the 41-year-old officer told them he only flashed his badge when he saw the activist approach him and a 30-year-old female companion who was a Planned Parenthood patient.
With the disparity in statements and police finding both a badge in the officer's possession and a handgun in his vehicle -- and both objects being silver in color -- they've decided not to make any arrests, Aurora police spokesman Dan Ferrelli said.

“Be careful his bowtie is really a camera”
Why would he flash a badge at her?
” ... a Planned Parenthood patient. ...”
You are a patient if you are seeing a doctor. An abortionist is not a doctor, but a violator of the Hypocratic Oath.
I was hoping someone would post that ...
So if the off-duty officer approached my car and I pointed my aluminum foil hat at him and he thought it was a gun because a gun was later found in my car, we would just forget about the whole thing since our stories differed?

She says he pointed a gun at her, and he had a gun in his vehicle.
