Man faces charges after allegedly trying to run down cops

This foolishness is a little too close to home!
A 50-year-old near west suburban man has been charged with a dozen counts ranging from aggravated battery of a police officer to running a stop sign following an incident early Saturday in which he allegedly tried to run over police officers on the South Side.

The incident happened about 12:40 a.m. Saturday on the 100 block of East 95th Street. Police shot at a tire of a vehicle that was being driven at an officer, Calumet Area detectives said.
Nobody was struck by gunfire and nobody was injured, police News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro said.

Alvin Herbert, 50, of the 500 block of Des Plaines in Forest Park, was charged and cited following that incident, according to police News Affairs.

Herbert battered, resisted, and attempted to assault police officers who were conducting a traffic stop after they observed Herbert's vehicle commit traffic violations, a release from News Affairs said.
Well got wind of this story on the Blotter, but Chicagoist mentioned it as well!
