A Chicago Department of Transportation supervisor has been placed on leave with pay after being arrested while on the city clock Friday morning, accused of seeking the services of a prostitute who was really an undercover police officer.
Hugo Holmes, 56, of the 1700 block of East 55th Street was charged with soliciting a sex act, a misdemeanor, and released on his own recognizance, police said. The vehicle he was driving at the time of his arrest on the 4600 block of South Washtenaw Avenue was impounded.
Holmes, a field supervisor first hired in 1989, earns about $85,000 a year, according to city records. "Depending on the outcome [of his case], we will decide what kind of discipline is appropriate," said Maria Castaneda, spokeswoman for the department

    Even the commissioner is aware of this incident along with the inspector general
