Man Charged with Attempting to Disarm Police Officer

On April 25, at 8:12 a.m. Evanston police received a call that there were three people in a silver care in front of the Chase Bank on Chicago Avenue acting suspiciouisly, said Commander Ryan Glew of the Evanston Police Department.

Officers responded and stopped a silver vehicle in the area to investigate. During the investigation, officers observed what appeared to be the driver concealing narcotics. The driver then sped off from the traffic stop, said the Commander.

A short time later an officer saw the vehicle, crashed into a building, in the area of 2400 Main St. The driver fled on foot, and while officers were attempting to take the driver  into custody he grabbed the gun of one of the officers, while it was in the holster of the officer. The driver was tased and taken into custody, said the Commander.

The driver, a 29-year old man from Des Plaines, was charged with attempting to disarm a police officer as well as other charges, said the Commander.
