COOK COUNTY CRIMINAL COURTHOUSE — A man ran over his girlfriend's leg with an SUV, left her at the scene and then resisted his eventual arrest in West Lawn Friday, according to prosecutors and a police arrest report.
Cory D. York, 34, was charged with aggravated domestic battery, aggravated battery of a peace officer, aggravated battery with use of a deadly weapon and a charge related to driving with a revoked license after a DUI, all felonies. Additionally, he was charged with misdemeanor aggravated assault to police, misdemeanor leaving the scene of a crash, misdemeanor driving on a revoked license, misdemeanor battery and improper traffic lane usage.
York was with his 35-year-old girlfriend in a Ford SUV when they got into an argument near 67th Street and Pulaski Road Friday, according to Assistant State's Attorney Rina Infelise and the arrest report.
York threw his girlfriend's glasses out of the car, and when she got out York kept trying to block her path, Infelise said during a bond hearing Sunday.
York backed up and drove over her leg, Infelise said. He then got out and tried to drag her back inside the car, Infelise said. According to the arrest report, he hit her in the face and she was run over twice.
According to Infelise, two witnesses saw this happen from their cars and went to help the woman. She was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center and was diagnosed with a severe sprain, swelling and lacerations, according to Infelise.
At some point during the incident, York struck two parked cars, the report stated.
According to the report, York was standing near 67th Street and Pulaski Road when police arrived. As cops approached him, he ran away east on Marquette Road, the report stated.
Officers caught up to him, and York allegedly flailed his arms and legs and spit at officers before he was taken into custody. When he got into the police car, he continued to spit at officers and tried to kick one of the windows out, according to the report.
He was arrested about 6:31 p.m., according to the report.
York's background includes nine felony convictions, including burglaries, retail thefts, aggravated DUI and a hate crime, Infelise said. She said York was released from prison on parole in November of last year.
Judge Maria Kuriakos Ciesil ordered York, of the 4200 block of West 79th Place, held in lieu of $100,000 bail on Sunday.
