Ryan A. Poltzer, 43, of Cary.

A Cary man out on bond for strangling a child in Cary and driving drunk with two children in the car had his pre-trial release revoked after being arrested for another DUI.

Ryan A. Poltzer, 43, of Cary, was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and resisting a peace officer.

Officers around 7:30 a.m. on October 27 located Poltzer in the driver’s seat of a vehicle parked outside of his home in the 900 block of Manchester Street in Cary.

Officers were conducting a separate investigation when they came upon Poltzer, who had a strong odor of alcoholic beverage coming from his breath, according to court documents.

He allegedly exhibited slurred speech, bloodshot and glassy eyes and trouble with dexterity.

Poltzer attempted to walk away from officers and eventually ran before being apprehended, court documents said.

He refused field sobriety testing and admitted to consuming alcohol.

Court records show Poltzer was out on a $50,000 bond at the time of his latest arrest for a prior case where he was charged in February with aggravated domestic battery by strangulation, aggravated battery of a child causing great bodily harm and two counts of child endangerment.

A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court said Poltzer drove a vehicle in December 2022 in McHenry County while consuming alcohol.

Two children, ages four and five, were passengers in the car, the complaint said.

Poltzer on December 11, 2022, or December 12, 2022, strangled the five-year-old child, the complaint said, adding that Poltzer applied pressure on the throat of the child, impeding their breathing.

The incident occurred at a residence in the 2800 block of Sun Valley Drive in Cary, the complaint said.

The mother of the children reported that Poltzer had been physically abusive to her on numerous occasions, leaving her injured, according to a petition for order of protection.

On one of the occasions, she said that Poltzer tried pushing her out of a moving car and that he had mentioned wanting to kill her and the children.

The woman said that Poltzer smacked her daughter in the face and also hit her son, according to the petition, which referenced the incident where Poltzer was accused of strangling the child.

Poltzer was also out on bond in a prior misdemeanor domestic battery case involving the woman.

Prosecutors last month filed a petition to revoke Poltzer’s pre-trial release in the February case after saying he violated his release conditions by committing new criminal offenses.

Last week, McHenry County Judge Tiffany Davis granted the petition after finding no conditions of release could ensure the safety of others and prevent Poltzer from committing new offenses.
