A Jefferson Park tow truck driver was arrested Wednesday for an Oct. 29 altercation in which he allegedly threatened to assault a firefighter at the scene of an accident before driving off in his truck at nearly 90 miles per hour.
Dimetris Frayzier, 27, of the 5500 block of North Mango Avenue, was charged with aggravated assault, aggravated fleeing and a slew of other driving offenses, according to court records, after he drove in his tow truck Oct. 29 to a car accident near the intersection of Montrose Avenue and Cicero Avenue.
When Frayzier's towing services weren't needed, county prosecutors said, he allegedly challenged one of the firemen responding to the scene, saying, "I know where he lives and I'm coming to get him." Police were called, but Frayzier sped off in his truck, the police report said, driving through multiple lanes of traffic and on the shoulder of the Kennedy Expressway.
Frayzier turned himself into police officials Wednesday afternoon.
Prosecutors said Frazyier has also been accused of a pending misdemeanor assault in which he allegedly drove to the scene of another car crash, became angry and swung his fists at a person helping the victim of the crash.
Frazyier was brought to the Cook County Criminal Courthouse Thursday afternoon and ordered held on $15,000 bond.
