A 20-year-old man is free on bond and awaiting trial on nine charges, after Naperville police said he slammed his car into one being driven by his former girlfriend and then narrowly missed striking a police squad car during an ensuing chase.
Burr Ridge resident Parthasarathy K. Agrawal was released Wednesday from DuPage County Jail after posting $10,000 bond, the mandatory 10 percent of his $100,000 bail.
He faces trial on two felony charges of aggravated assault with a motor vehicle and single counts of driving under the influence of drugs, fleeing or attempting to elude police, reckless driving, passing in a no-passing zone, driving without insurance, improper backing of a vehicle and failure to wear a seat belt, according to records on file in DuPage County Circuit Court.
Agrawal was arrested about 12:28 a.m. Sunday on the 2700 block of Flagstone Circle, in the Summerfield area of Naperville’s southwest side.
Police Sgt. Lou Cammiso said while the formal report on the incident remained incomplete, the initial 911 call “was for a domestic (quarrel)” involving a woman and her ex-boyfriend.
The man, later identified as Agrawal, was behind the wheel of a silver, 2010 Toyota Prius, Cammiso said Tuesday in an e-mail.
Agrawal allegedly “got mad and intentionally rammed the car of the victim as she was driving, and also took down several mailboxes in the area,” Cammiso said.
Agrawal “then fled from officers in a neighborhood and nearly struck a squad car,” Cammiso said. He was “eventually apprehended and charged with the listed offenses.”
Cammiso added no one was injured in the incident.
An examination of court records revealed Agrawal in May was placed on supervision and fined, after pleading guilty to a January 2011 charge of drunken driving in Downers Grove.
He also was ordered that month to serve in the Sheriff’s Work Alternative Program and perform community serivce work, after being found guilty of a June 2011 felony charge of disorderly conduct, court records showed.
Agrawal is scheduled to be arraigned March 5 in the Naperville case.
