Michael J. Nurnberg, 33, of Fox Lake.

A Fox Lake man was charged with leading police on a high-speed pursuit after he allegedly fled from officers on a motorcycle in Spring Grove, court records show.

Michael J. Nurnberg, 33, of Fox Lake, was charged with aggravated fleeing to elude, driving on a revoked or suspended license, obstructing justice, reckless driving, speeding 35+ mph over limit, improper lane usage and changing lanes without a signal.

A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court alleges Nurnberg fled on a motorcycle from a fully marked police vehicle around 10:10 p.m. on May 18.

Nurnberg reached speeds of almost 90 mph on the motorcycle and passed multiple vehicles in a no-passing zone, the complaint said.

Nurnberg drove the motorcycle with a “willful or wanton disregard” for the safety of others, the complaint said.

The pursuit went eastbound on Route 12 through Spring Grove and into Fox Lake, at which point the chase was terminated.

Nurnberg’s driver’s license had been revoked at the time, the complaint said.

When officers later went to Nurnberg’s residence in Fox Lake, Nurnberg lied and said he was not the driver of the fleeing motorcycle, the complaint added.

Officers obtained an arrest warrant and Nurnberg was later taken into custody and transported to the McHenry County Jail.

Nurnberg was released after posting 10% of a $50,000 bond, court records show.

He is scheduled to appear in court on June 20 for a preliminary hearing.
