Anthony K. Koga, 17, of the 2200 block of Rossiter Parkway in unincorporated Plainfield was arrested by Channahon police and booked into the Will County jail on charges of aggravated fleeing, which is a felony, driving the wrong way on a one-way street, misdemeanor reckless driving, failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident and driving without a valid license, according to jail records. According to the Herald-News, Koga was pulled over after police noticed his vehicle, a 2001 Mercury Cougar, driving side-by-side with a silver SUV on southbound I-55. Believing that the drivers were either "horsing around" or involved in an altercation, police followed the vehicles as they got off on Route 6 before heading back north on I-55. When the Cougar made a U-turn at Route 59, police initiated a traffic stop — but instead of pulling over, Koga allegedly sped to the westbound I-80 ramp, where he lost control and crashed the car before "multiple subjects" fled the vehicle. Police located Koga later that morning at his Plainfield home, where he told officers he "freaked out and took off" because he didn't have a driver's license and is on parole.
