On Monday at approximately 10:30 p.m., Ogle County Sheriff’s Deputies attempted to stop a vehicle for traffic violations on I39. The vehicle, a passenger car, did not stop for Deputies and fled from the scene.
The vehicle later came to a stop on I39 where the driver, 35 year old Louis Portlock of Houston TX, was charged with Fleeing to Elude a Peace Officer. Portlock was also issued citations for Operating an Uninsured Motor Vehicle, Improper Lane Usage, Expired Registration, Speeding, and No Passenger Side Headlight.
Portlock was released on an I-Bond with a return court date later this month. Sheriff’s Deputies were assisted by the Illinois State Police.
