A Kenosha man wanted for allegedly hitting two police officers with his vehicle and fleeing from officers in Johnsburg has been taken into custody in Colorado.
Andrew D. Quella, 33, of the 7900 block of 25th Court in Kenosha, Wisconsin, was charged with two counts of aggravated battery of a peace officer, two counts of resisting a peace officer, two counts of fleeing and attempting to elude an officer and reckless driving.
The incident happened on March 18 in Johnsburg, according to court documents.
Officers conducted a traffic stop on Quella, who was driving a red BMW Z4, a criminal complaint said.
Officers asked the man to exit the vehicle but he refused and attempted to drive away in his BMW, the complaint alleged.
An officer suffered bodily harm after his arm was hit by the fleeing BMW, the complaint said.
A second officer was also struck by the car.
Quella led officers on a pursuit through multiple jurisdictions, including into McHenry on Route 120.
The complaint said that Quella drove recklessly during the pursuit with a “willful or wanton disregard for the safety of the public.”
The complaint alleged that Quella changed lanes multiple times without using his signal and was speeding and tailgating other drivers.
A warrant was issued for the man in late March, court records show.
Quella was arrested by the Clear Creek Sheriff’s Office in Colorado on July 19.
He was extradited to McHenry County on July 22.
Bond was initially set at $50,000 but McHenry County Judge David Gervais reduced Quella’s bond to $20,000 on Wednesday.
An arraignment hearing is scheduled for Monday.
