Three Police Cars Rammed in Four Months

On Feb. 2 at 9:11 a.m., Evanston patrol officers saw a man they know had an outstanding arrest warrant driving a red Chevy Tahoe near Foster Street and Maple Avenue, said Commander Ryan Glew of the Evanston Police Department. Officers stopped the man, but before they could arrest him on the outstanding warrant, he fled in his vehicle.

A short time later, a police officer saw s red Chevy Tahoe near 2500 Central Street. The officer attempted to exit his vehicle, but the man in Chevy Tahoe drove toward the squad car, side swiped the driver’s side of the squad car and then continued to flee, said the Commander.

On Feb. 3, 2019, at 1:50 p.m., Evanston police arrested the man in Chicago, and he was charged with aggravated battery of a police officer and other offenses, said Cmdr. Glew. The man is 31 years old and a resident of Evanston.

This is the third incident in which an Evanston police car was rammed by an offender since Oct. 5, 2018. In all three incidents officers were injured, and in all three incidents the offenders were arrested and charged, said the Commander.
