A Kenosha man was ordered held in lieu of $250,000 bail today after being charged with driving under the influence after he crashed an SUV that burst into flames when it struck a north suburban townhome early Friday morning.
Adam R. Bileck, 32, appeared before a Lake County judge today where he was charged with aggravated driving under the influence, driving without a valid drivers license, driving with a revoked license and leaving the scene of an accident, said Cynthia Trujillo Vargas, a spokeswoman for the Lake County State's Attorney's office.
Bileck was released from Advocate Condell Hospital Saturday evening and held on the charges stemming from the early morning crash Friday at 450 Patriot Dr. in Hainesville near Round Lake Beach, said police.
According to reports, the SUV veered off the road about 4 a.m. and struck the house before bursting into flames and sending fire through the house, said police.
Bileck fled the scene and hid under a pickup truck a few blocks away. The owner of that pickup truck discovered Bileck when leaving for work. Bileck then tried to hide in a marshy area off Hainesville Road but was picked up by police.
