Chicago’s former top cop Eddie Johnson turned himself in to police after officers responded to his home for a report of a domestic incident, according to a news report.

A source said Johnson went to the 9th District police station Saturday, WBBM-TV reported. He was “wanted” overnight because he left the scene before cops arrived, according to the station.

Police were called to Johnson’s home Friday night by a third party, the station reported.

“We had a disagreement. We are fine,” Johnson told a reporter for the station outside his home Saturday.

The department issued a statement saying no injuries were reported and no arrests were made in connection with the incident, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

The incident was the latest trouble for Johnson in the past few days.

OFFICER SUES FORMER CHICAGO TOP COP EDDIE JOHNSON FOR SEXUAL ASSAULT

It comes on the heels of a lawsuit being filed that accuses Johnson of sexually assaulting a female police officer when he was Chicago police superintendent.

Cynthia Donald claims the attacks happened when she worked for Johnson’s security detail as his driver.

Two days after the filing of the lawsuit, Chicago’s inspector general announced the suspensions of seven officers in connection with an incident last year in which Johnson was found passed out in his departmental vehicle.

The IG found Johnson had consumed the equivalent of ten drinks that night.
