Eight guns is a cache?
« on: April 14, 2014, 10:19:50 PM »


A Lincoln Park doctor with a cache of guns in his apartment claimed that “a nervous tic” caused him to fire into a neighbor’s unit on Wednesday, according to a police report.

Michael Olivieri, 53, told officers he had placed a revolver on an island in his kitchen and thought he had replaced its live rounds with dummy rounds, the arrest report said. But “everything happened so fast,” he told police, and soon he “squeezed the trigger as a nervous tic like squeezing a tennis ball.”

That “tic” caused a bullet to go through his wall and into a neighbor’s apartment, where it damaged the kitchen backsplash, prosecutors said. No one was hurt.

When police showed up to investigate, they confiscated eight guns – including handguns and at least one rifle. Prosecutors said the guns were not registered. When police returned to his apartment Friday, he told them he had a ninth gun that he had forgotten to tell them about two days earlier. That weapon was in his car in the building’s parking garage.

Officers arrested Olivieri on Friday at his high-rise apartment in the 2000 block of North Lincoln Park West, near the Lincoln Park Zoo’s antelope and zebra enclosure. He faces a felony charge of reckless discharge of a firearm and was also cited with having unregistered guns.

Olivieri, a family physician, has an active state medical license, online records show. His arrest report said he is currently on leave from his practice.

Lincoln Park, Illinois......

Michigan laws don't apply, it wouldn't be a "cache here.
