(STMW) — A Roseland man charged with four felonies and many traffic violations for allegedly stealing a squad car Monday morning on the South Side has been ordered held without bond.
Darnell Grandison, 28, was charged with attempted first-degree murder, two counts of aggravated fleeing, and two counts of aggravated assault of a peace officer, all felonies, according to police. He also faces numerous misdemeanor traffic violations.
Grandison allegedly jumped out of the stolen squad car, which was being pursued by other police vehicles, in the 7200 block of South Lowe Avenue at 9:20 a.m. and a foot chase ensued, authorities said.
The chase ended in the 7600 block of South Normal Avenue when Grandison fell down and suffered a head injury, authorities said.
He was taken in “stable” condition to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County, Fire Media Affairs spokesman Larry Langford said.
Grandison, of the 10000 block of South State Street, was denied bond Tuesday. He is next due to appear in court Friday.
