You can run, but you can't hide

From the Crystal Lake Police Department comes the following press release:

"On Saturday, November 6th, 2010 at approximately 03:24 AM, Crystal Lake Police received information from a concerned motorist of a 1998 Dodge Ram pickup truck traveling northbound on McHenry Avenue without headlights, at a high rate of speed, and with only three inflated tires. A patrol officer located the Dodge Ram and attempted to conduct a traffic stop. The operator of the pickup truck failed to yield to the stop, accelerated further and attempted to elude the officers. As the officers gave pursuit, the Dodge Ram continued at a high rate of speed northbound on Walkup Avenue/Crystal Lake Road attempting to accelerate away from the pursuing officers before losing control and crashing into an embankment on Crystal Lake Road at Kensington Drive in the City of McHenry where the vehicle rolled over. The operator, Russ M. Starks (30) of 511 Kensington Drive, McHenry, suffered injuries requiring transport to Northern Illinois Medical Center in McHenry. The McHenry Police Department responded to the scene and investigated the crash. Upon release from the hospital, Russ M. Starks was arrested and charged with the following offenses; Aggravated DUI (4 Felony), Aggravated Fleeing and Eluding (4 Felony), Speeding over 40 MPH over posted limit (A Misdemeanor), and Driving While License Suspended (A Misdemeanor) along with nine additional traffic offenses (petty offenses). The Starks subject was released from the McHenry County Adult Correctional Facility on November 7th, 2010 after posting $2,300.00 cash bond. This case is pending a court appearance on December 21st, 2010 at the McHenry County Courthouse."

(Don't blame me for the one long paragraph. That's how it was issued.)
