Evanston Man Charged with Aggravated Battery to Police Officer

On Oct. 5, 2018, at 6:30 p.m. Evanston Police Tactical Unit detectives responded to a drug complaint in the 1100 block of Church Street, said Commander Ryan Glew of the Evanston Police Department. Once detectives arrived on scene they observed a vehicle matching the description in the complaint, a white Kia Sorento. 

Detectives investigated and detected an odor of cannabis coming from the Kia, said the Commander. A 24-year old Evanston man was sitting in the passenger seat. Detectives attempted to investigate and instructed the man to exit the vehicle; the man did not comply and after he disregarded the detectives' attempts to gain his compliance he moved into the driver's seat, said the Commander. Once in the driver's seat the man fled and allegedly intentionally struck an occupied Evanston Police Squad Car as he fled, said the Commander. The man then allegedly fled west bound on Church Street, against the flow of traffic, and then south bound on Ridge Ave. Detectives then lost sight of the man and he was not taken into custody. The officer in the squad car suffered minor injuries, said the Commander.

On October 19, 2018, detectives attained an arrest warrant for the man. On Jan. 23, 2019, the man was arrested by Grayslake, Illinois, Police Department on his outstanding arrest warrant. He was transported to Evanston Police and charged with a felony count of aggravated battery to a police officer and other charges.
