A Woodstock man has been indicted on felony charges after he allegedly drove towards a crowd at a party near Marengo and hit a person, causing him to suffer a serious leg injury.
Alfredo D. Jordan, 22, of the 200 block of Joseph Street in Woodstock, was initially charged in early September with reckless conduct, two counts of driving under the influence of alcohol, driving without a license and operating an uninsured motor vehicle.
A grand jury indictment returned in court in early December charged Jordan with aggravated battery causing great bodily harm, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, two counts of aggravated driving under the influence causing bodily harm and aggravated reckless driving causing bodily harm.
The charges stem from an incident on September 6 where Jordan drove a vehicle in a reckless manner and hit a man, causing the victim to sustain a severe laceration to his leg, according to the indictment.
Jordan was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the incident, the indictment said.
The Northwest Herald reported that Jordan drove a vehicle onto a property in the 22600 block of Kishwaukee Valley Road in unincorporated Marengo, according to a police report obtained through a Freedom of Information Act Request.
Approximately 50 people, including children, were attending a party at the property at the time, the report said.
The victim was transported to Northwestern Medicine Hospital in Huntley for treatment.
McHenry County sheriff’s deputies arrested Jordan a short time later after conducting a traffic stop on the vehicle he fled in, the Northwest Herald reported.
Jordan was released from custody after posting 10% of his $25,000 bond on the warrant for his most recent charges.
An arraignment hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.
