A Chicago man was arrested after he allegedly pointed a loaded gun at gas station patrons and then struck and injured a police officer with his vehicle in Waukegan.
Ktwoine D. Webb, 31, of the 900 block of West 52nd Street in Chicago, was charged with armed habitual criminal, aggravated battery using a deadly weapon, felon in possession of a firearm, aggravated battery to a peace officer, two counts of aggravated fleeing police, driving under the influence and aggravated assault.
A criminal complaint filed in Lake County Circuit Court said Webb waved, threatened and pointed a loaded firearm at patrons of a business.
The incident happened at the BP gas station at Grand Avenue and Jackson Street in Waukegan early in the morning on August 7.
Officers with the Waukegan Police Department arrived and Webb accelerated towards their direction with his black 2021 Nissan.
Webb, “with no record to life,” used his Nissan to strike an officer, causing great bodily harm, the complaint said.
The extent of the officer’s injuries was not immediately known.
Webb fled from police at a high rate of speed and was eventually taken into custody, the complaint said. Officers recovered the man in possession of a firearm.
Webb is not allowed to possess any firearms because he has multiple felony convictions, court documents said.
Lake County Judge David Brodsky ordered Webb held in the Lake County Jail on a $750,000 bond.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Tuesday.
