Bankrupt Country Club Hills police chief part of failed ventures
By Lauren FitzPatrick and Casey Toner
Jul 16, 2011
The police chief of Country Club Hills, who with her husband earns more than $200,000 courtesy of city taxpayers, apparently is broke.
Thanks to a series of failed businesses, including theaters they ran on Chicagos South Side and in Dolton, Regina Evans and her husband, Ronald Evans, the inspector general of the city of 16,000, have declared personal bankruptcy.
When Regina Evans, a retired Chicago police lieutenant, was hired in 2009 by Mayor Dwight Welch, she already was deeply in debt. By the time her husband, also a former Chicago cop, joined her on the city payroll in 2010 in a job that tasks him with investigating her and at least one other relative working for the city, the couple had filed for bankruptcy reorganization of their business, The Prime Time Group.
In the personal bankruptcy filings in March, they say they owe $4.5 million.
They claimed assets of a checking account with $400.
The Evanses had walked away from commercial leases, loans, credit card bills and big mortgages and faced lawsuits against themselves, their companies and a not-for-profit foundation that Regina Evans founded named We Are Our Brothers Keeper. They faced foreclosure on several properties.
They failed to show up for numerous lawsuit hearings, resulting in hefty judgments against them. And one of their attorneys dropped them, telling a Cook County judge he couldnt get them to answer his correspondence in the case.
Before her hiring as police chief was finalized, Country Club Hills police officials conducted a background check on her. The deputy commander in March 2009 sent Welch a memo, obtained by Sun-Times Media, saying the searchs results advised against hiring Evans.

"We're broke but the sex wasn't half bad."
In March bankruptcy filings, the $200,000 govt employees said they owed $4.5 million. They claimed assets of a checking account with $400. The Evans' had walked away from commercial leases, loans, credit card bills and big mortgages, and faced lawsuits against themselves, their companies and a tax-exempt not-for-profit foundation Regina Evans founded called We Are Our Brothers Keeper.
They faced foreclosure on several properties, didnt show up for numerous lawsuit hearings, resulting in hefty judgments. And one of their own attorneys dropped them, telling a Cook County judge he couldnt get them to answer his correspondence.
Before Regina's hiring as police chief was finalized, L/E officials conducted a background check on her. The deputy commander sent out a memo, obtained by Sun-Times Media, saying the searchs results advised against the hire. It is also believed her applications were falsified.
BACKSTORY After retiring from the Chicago Police Department, the Evans' decided to restore the historic New Regal Theater on 79th Street in Chicago, paying $2.36 million in 2008 with the help of a free $1.9 million city loan. Their Prime Time Group also received a $200,000 "loan" from CEDA of Cook County. Two other state grants were believed to be funded by the Illinois Department of Economic Opportunity.
CEDA attorney Joel Handler said the couple didnt pay the loan back or hire any of the people the money was supposed to pay for. Prime Time got a state check up front, then failed to turn in required documents. Even before she got the money, she failed to present required invoices. CEDA is trying to free itself from the Evans' bankruptcy scam. It became clear Evans and Prime Time never intended to repay tax dollars.
" You gotta save Chicago from scorn---give the Evans a billion dollar bailout."
The South and Southwest side “Government, union and or government union industrial machine” is an equal opportunity affirmative action employer. Whites, blacks, asians, hispanics all play a part in the great ripoff of the “chumbalones.” These mopes were but a face and a signature for loans that were then parcelled out to people who did and did not look like them, to use the parlance of the multi-culture cult.
I feel major infrastructure money heading their way....
Tsk! Tsk! Tsk! Another example of reparations for years of ancestral mistreatment.
In becoming Country Club Hills police chief, Evans was the first black female to head a police force in the south suburbs
Anybody care to make a guess why she was hired?
Wonder how many qualified whites were jumped over?
People put up with it. Apparently, “Tolerance” means not only the inability to say Yes or No, but also preferential hiring.
"These are 'your people.' Bail 'em out and put 'em in the WH. We can use
their expertise to launder all the money we're taking out of the US Treasury."
Is it just me? Or does Regina look like a circus clown to you, too?
That ridiculous hat and uniform on her looks like a joke.
She is a beauty all right. What amazes me is that some Credit Outfit or series of outfits let these two clowns get in debt to the tune of ovr 4 million dollars.
Now they get to start all over owing nothing, and in 7 years their credit will be clean and they can start all over again.
We aint seen nothing yet-—wait til the Evans go into their “Pay-Me-I’m-A-Victim-Act-—the usual scam Dems pull when they find themselves in deep-doo doo.
BTW, You, too, can be in debt to the tune of 4 million dollars.......
Just whine to sap-happy, vote crazed politicians that you are a “victim” and you want govt agencies to start the money train and keep it going at mach one speed.........but make sure to open the numbered offshore accounts first.
Oak Forest and Tinley Park were about it for the South Suburbs. (I was just in Oak Forest last week for a Wake and a Funeral, still ok)
