ST. CHARLES TOWNSHIP – A felony fleeing and eluding police charge has been filed against a Maple Park man who admitted to riding his motorcycle at 100 miles an hour in a 55-mile-an-hour zone to get away from police.

David R. Altepeter, 31, of the 44W500 block of Ramm Road, Maple Park, was charged June 10 with aggravated fleeing a police officer at least 21 miles per hour over the speed limit.

After he had been given a visual or audible signal by a police officer directing him to stop, Altepeter knowingly failed or refused to obey and increased his rate of speed, according to the charging documents.

Altepeter posted $1,000 bail or 10 percent of the $10,000 bond that was set.

No court date has been scheduled for the felony charge.

Altepeter was charged May 27 with speeding 90 miles an hour in a 55-mile-an-hour zone on his motorcycle, according to Kane County Sheriff’s reports.

Kane County Deputy Sheriff Lt. Pat Gengler stated in an email that the deputy gave Altepeter a 10-mile break on the speed listed in the ticket, not knowing Altepeter’s full driving history at that time.

Altepeter was also charged with not having a license plate on his motorcycle and violating his license classification, in that he did not have a motorcycle license, all misdemeanor traffic violations.

Altepeter’s next court appearance on the traffic charges in branch court is July 31.
