Court grants state’s motion to deny pre-trial release for Addison man accused of aggravated DUI/aggravated fleeing and eluding

DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin and Addison Chief of Police Roy Selvik have announced that Judge Joshua Dieden granted the state’s motion to deny pre-trial release for an Addison man accused of leading police on a high-speed chase after he had been drinking.

Ivan Carrillo, 25, appeared at First Appearance Court and is charged with one count of aggravated fleeing and eluding (Class 3 felony), one count of aggravated DUI (Class 4 felony) and one count of aggravated driving while license suspended (Class 4 felony) and a dozen misdemeanor and petty traffic offenses including reckless driving and unlawful possession of cannabis by driver.

On Feb. 8 at approximately 10 p.m., Addison police officers on patrol entered a shopping center parking lot located in the 100 block of N. Swift Road where they allegedly observed an individual, later identified as Carrillo, exit Game Time 190 Bar and Video Gaming, enter a 2002 Toyota Camry and drive away.

A short time later, officers allegedly observed Carrillo disobey a red light at Lake Street and John F. Kennedy Boulevard. It is alleged that Carrillo then accelerated at a high rate of speed on Kennedy Boulevard onto westbound Army Trail Road where he disobeyed a red light at Army Trail Road and Mill Road before entering northbound I-355.

Officers pursued Carrillo with their emergency lights and sirens activated onto northbound I-355 where Carrillo allegedly reached speeds of approximately 95 mph while weaving in and out of traffic. Officers ultimately terminated pursuit out of safety concerns.

A short time later, at approximately 10:36 p.m., officers observed Carrillo jogging through a park near his home. He was taken into custody at this time. It is alleged that at the time of his arrest, Carrillo’s eyes were glassy and bloodshot, his speech was slow and there was an odor of alcohol emanating from his breath.

“The allegations that Mr. Carrillo not only led police on a high-speed chase, but did so after he had been drinking, are outrageous,” Berlin said. “Our public roadways are used by hundreds of thousands of people each day and we will not tolerate any type of behavior that puts innocent motorists at risk. Thankfully, Mr. Carrillo’s alleged actions did not harm anyone. I thank the Addison Police Department for their work and good judgement on this case.”

“Mr. Carrillo put lives in jeopardy with his reckless actions and complete disregard for the safety and well-being of others” Selvik said.

Carrillo’s next court appearance is scheduled March 4 for arraignment in front of Judge Daniel Guerin.
