A 40-year-old Wisconsin man, who was wanted on arrest warrants, led police on a brief vehicle pursuit and was later arrested after officers found him when he crashed his car near Harvard.
Harvard Police Department Deputy Chief Tyson Bauman said officers attempted to stop a 2012 Chevrolet driven by Salvador Basilio-Andrade last Saturday.
Basilio-Andrade, 40, of the 700 block of West Grand Avenue in Beloit, Wisconsin, allegedly refused to stop for officers near Brink Street and Division Street in Harvard.
The pursuit was terminated at Brink Street and Schultz Road and officers returned to city limits, Bauman said.
A few minutes later, a Harvard police officer was assisting the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office on a call in the same general area.
The officer was clearing the scene and came upon Basilio-Andrade and his 2012 Chevrolet, which was crashed into a tree after he drove off the roadway on Schultz Road north of Brink Street, Bauman said.
Basilio-Andrade was arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated driving under the influence of alcohol and aggravated fleeing and eluding a peace officer.
He was cited for having a loud muffler, speeding 35+ mph over the limit, driving on the wrong side of the roadway, disobeying a stop sign, driving under the influence, driving while license revoked, reckless driving, transportation of open alcohol by a driver and attempted fleeing and eluding a peace officer.
Basilio-Andrade also had two warrants out of Winnebago County for failure to appear in court on a previous driving while license revoked case.
Basilio-Andrade was transported to the McHenry County Jail where he was released after posting 10% of a $15,000 bond.
He is scheduled to appear in court again on Wednesday.
