A Will County man is facing his second DUI charge in four years. In 2016, Thomas Michalski, 25, of Braidwood was arrested by the Grundy County Sheriff’s Department for DUI and later placed on two years of court supervision.
In November of 2019, Michalski was charged in Will County with two counts of Aggravated Assault to a police officer, firefighter or emergency room worker, both class four felonies and Aggravated Assault in a public place, a class A misdemeanor. In that case, Michalski is accused of assaulting a police officer, firefighter or ER worker somewhere in the Braidwood area on November 15th.
Michalski was released on a $50,000 personal recognizance bond and was ordered not to consume any alcohol or illegal drug while out on bond. Meanwhile, the Morris Police Department said Michalski was driving east in the 800 block of Washington Street when he collided with three parked vehicles around 6 p.m. on January 6th. Michalski then left the scene on foot running, but was later apprehended.
He was charged with DUI, failing to reduce speed to avoid an accident, improper lane usage, leaving the scene of a property damage accident, operating a vehicle without insurance, and failing to report accident to police authority. He was transported to the Morris Police Department and released on a $100 bond.
