Police Pursuit for Traffic Violation Said to Turn up Stolen Car
An Illinois policeman attempted to pull over a vehicle in a recent highway pursuit. The driver of the vehicle, who had apparently committed a traffic violation, refused to stop for the officer and fled away. During the driver’s alleged evasion of justice, he is said to have caused two other vehicles to crash on the highway.
The driver of the escaping vehicle wrecked, and the car he was driving was apparently totaled. After police arrested the driver, they discovered that the totaled vehicle had been reported as stolen from a gas station in another location. According to reports, the car was left unattended with the motor running in the gas station parking, lot and the man who was driving when it crashed is suspected of stealing it.
The man is also accused of stealing food from the gas station store. He is being held in jail in Chicago. Records show that the man was on parole at the time of the incident. Authorities have stated that he is has a prior criminal history, including another incident where he apparently fled from a police officer.
The 41-year-old will now face multiple charges in an Illinois court. As dictated by the American legal system, he — as any other Illinois resident accused of a traffic violation or a crime — is entitled to seek legal consultation from an attorney who has experience in criminal defense. Acquiring legal representation is a logical step to take when one wishes to seek advice with regard to preparing for court proceedings and what options may be available as the criminal case moves forward.
