The claimed response from Schneider was, “You have no f—ing brains. You stupid mother—-er, you deserve to die. You must receive a fatal headshot. DeRosa said, “You need to be set on fire. The officers discovered Schneider pulling out of his driveway as they approached his home in Winthrop Harbor.
When Schneider passed one of the police, they attempted to conduct a traffic stop, but instead, a chase started, according to DeRosa. DeRosa claimed that during the more than 40-minute-long pursuit, Schneider allegedly ran about 10 stop signs and 2 stop lights.
Officers from the Zion Police Department came to help the Winthrop Harbor Police Department. At one point, officers tried to use stop sticks. According to DeRosa, Schneider made a sharp turn and traveled directly toward the policemen using the stop sticks.
Before hitting the officers, Schneider made a U-turn back into the correct lanes. DeRosa claimed that Schneider continued to be pursued by police as he made his way home and pulled into his garage, where he shut the overhead door. The garage door closed, then reopened as it struck the ground.
According to DeRosa, Schneider “aggressively” stepped out of the car and punched an officer in the left arm. According to reports, Schneider was actively resisting arrest and ignoring verbal orders.
After being tackled to the ground by one police, Schneider allegedly started pulling at the officer and attempted to strike a second cop, who then used their taser.
Along with the allegations against him, he was also issued 22 penalties for driving violations, such as illegal turn signal use and disobeying a stop sign. Schneider was mandated to post a $500,000 bond by Lake County Judge Theodore Potkonjak.
Potkonjak added that just before the bond hearing, Schneider had been given a weapons restraining order in another courtroom. To be released from the Lake County Jail, Schneider must post $50,000 in cash. On January 17, a preliminary hearing will take place.
