Man arrested after trying to run from police


PAXTON, Ill. (WCIA) — A Bloomington man is facing charges of attempting to flee and elude police, driving with a revoked license, and on multiple warrants.

Around 10:15 Thursday night, police tried to pull 39-year-old Nathanial Robinson over for speeding, having no registration light, and only one operating headlight. Instead, he sped away in 2008 Ford Mustang westbound on Route 9.

Robinson eventually slid into a ditch east of Gibson City. He got out of his car and fled. A female in the car stayed inside and told police who Robinson was. Investigators eventually arrested him later in Sibley. The Mustang was seized under city ordinance.
