A Kendall County man was arrested by the Morris Police Department twice within one hour on November 18th.
Morris Police Chief John Severson said an officer noticed a vehicle driven by Louis Yarbrough, 26, of Oswego had a large air freshener hanging from his mirror causing obstruction around 4:40 p.m. on November 16th.
Police officials say Yarbrough also had a suspended driver’s license. Severson said Yarbrough failed to stop for the officer allegedly blowing through several signs. The officer then terminated the pursuit.
Severson said Yarbrough lied several times to the police during a phone call, but eventually confirmed he was the driver of the vehicle and had a Cook County warrant out against him.
Shortly before two this morning, Yarbrough turned himself into the Morris Police Department for driving while license suspended, fleeing or attempting to elude an officer, having an obstructed window and disobeying a stop sign. Ten minutes after being released on bond Yarbrough got back into his vehicle, and was pulled over again for driving while license suspended.
Severson stated Yarbrough then told an officer he was driving his vehicle to a friend’s house to be taken home. Severson said Yarbrough then sprinted towards his vehicle, but was tackled and arrested for driving while license suspended.
He was transported to the Grundy County Jail and later released. More details could be added to this story in the future.
