South Cook News reported that Cook County State’s Attorney Kimberly Foxx slapped her husband, Kelley Foxx, in the face, leading him to call 9-1-1 last Saturday night.
That’s according to a police report obtained by South Cook News via a Freedom of Information Request to police in Flossmoor, where the couple lives.

Police say a member of Foxx’s “executive protection unit” stopped by the Flossmoor Police Department after the incident to ask if there was “anything (the police) need.”
Kim Foxx, 50, has been Cook County State’s Attorney since 2016.]
In April 2020, the Chicago Tribune reported that Foxx directed her office to “all but (stop) prosecuting new domestic violence cases in Cook County.”
“Only extremely violent cases will be prosecuted in the coming days. Instead, victims will be told to file for civil emergency orders of protection and then talk to prosecutors in a couple of weeks about pursuing criminal charges against their alleged abuser,” CWB Chicago wrote.
Wearing a t-shirt that said “Phenomenal Woman, Foxx posted a video to Twitter instructing domestic violence victims on “staying safe during a crisis,” advising them to create “distance from an abuser.”
“You are not alone,” Foxx wrote.

In summary, on June 4, 2022 at approximately 10:09 p.m., Officer Carden and I were dispatched to a domestic at 935 Argyle Avenue.
A male subject, later identified as Kelley Foxx (husband of Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx), dialed 9-1-1 to report a domestic with his wife.
While en route to the address, dispatch informed us that the domestic was physical and that there were no injuries “yet.”
Sergeant Tencza and Officer Estrada were assigned to a detail about a block away and responded to the call. Sergeant Tencza and Officer Estrada arrived on scene first and I received shortly after that.
Kelley and Kimberly (Foxx) were standing on the front step to the home upon our arrival. I exited my patrol vehicle and activated my body worn camera.
Sergeant Tencza walked with Kimberly away from the home and stopped by a vehicle parked in the driveway. Kelley was still standing near the front door to the home talking with Officer Estrada.
I walked over to Officer Estrada to hear the complainant’s explanation of what happened. Kelley explained to me that Kimberly got mad about something that was posted on Facebook that he did. Kimberly asked him to leave and he refused. Kimberly then became physical. Kimberly grabbed his collar and threw down his video game controller. He tried to turn on the TV and Kimberly snatched the controller out of his hand and threw the controller.
Kimberly was standing close enough to hear Kelley. While he was explaining what happened, I could hear Kimberly say “All that is true.”
Kelley went on to explain that she slapped him. I asked where he was slapped and he said “left cheek,” as he raised his hand to motion to his leg cheek.
I used my flashlight to see his left cheek. I did not observe and indicators to support his claim of being struck. There was no redness or swelling visible on his face. I explained that I did not see any marks on him and he responded that he just wants to be left alone.
I asked Kelley if he felt safe in the house. Kelley stated that he wanted to make sure someone understands what is happening here. I asked him to explain what his happening here meant, and he said she is being physically aggressive. He added that he just wants it to stop.
Sergeant Tencza spoke to Kimberly, who told him that she and her husband had an argument and she wanted him to leave. Sergeant Tencza walked over to the area where I was standing and spoke with Kelley. He repeated he just wants it to stop.
“She cannot come in my personal space and put her hands on me,” (Kelley said).
Officer Estrada went into the home to speak to their 19 year old daughter (redacted) about what happened with the incident. (Redacted) stated she heard a disagreement but could not tell what was going on and did not see anything.
Kelley explained to me that he needed to go pickup his other daughter from her job at Culver’s.
Kelley left and I spoke with Kimberly. Kimberly explained that she did put her hands on Kelley but it was only to help guide him out of the house. She never slapped him (she said).
I asked Kimberly if she felt safe in the home and she said “I mean he’s not crazy.”
Both Kimberly and Kelley stated they have been together for over 20 years and things have never been physical. Kimberly expressed that she felt Kelley called the police only to hurt her.
I did not see the evidence to support an arrest in this incident. Neither Kimberly nor Kelley chose to leave the home for the evening. I provided Kimberly and Kelley with separate Domestic Violence Information sheets.
This is the first time the Flossmoor Police have responded to a domestic call involving Kimberly and Kelley Foxx.
While I was working on this report, Richard Peck, an investigator from Kimberly Foxx’s executive protection unit, stopped at the Flossmoor Police Department.
Richard stated if we need anything we could contact him and he provided his contact number of (redacted). Officer Estrada, Officer Carden, Sergeant Tencza and I were wearing body worn cameras.
