The case against the Orland Park man who called himself the " Orland Ghost Rider," for weaving in and out of traffic on his motorcyle to evade police and shooting videos of the encounters, will head to trial in November.
Justin Jachimiec, 22, has been charged with several felony charges related to the incidents and has pleaded not guilty. Police caught up with him and arrested him last November; he has also been indicted on felony charges in the past related to resisting arrest and driving a stolen vehicle.
Jachimiec remains in custody on no bail after he missed his Oct. 4 court date and a warrant was issued for his arrest. Court records show he was taken into custody on Oct. 23.
Cook County State's Attorney's Office spokesman Andy Conklin told Patch Tuesday that Orland Park police looked for Jachimiec when he missed his last court appearance.
"[Orland police] had two phone conversations with him where he was supposed to come in and turn himself in," Conklin said during a phone interview.
Jachimiec ultimately appeared at the court house with his lawyer and was placed in custody.
A trial date has been set for Nov. 27 in Judge Carmen K. Aguilar's courtroom in Bridgeview.
