Michael Douglas, 26, of the 5000 block of West Thomas Street in Chicago is facing charges of attempted murder and aggravated assault after he allegedly tried to run over two police officers during his attempt to escape when the two undercover police officers identified themselves as police.

Douglas, 5’8″ 165 LBS, while he was in his car, was shot in the leg by Palatine police Thursday night in an apartment parking lot at 525 North Quentin Road. The police-involved shooting occurred during his attempt to flee an active drug investigation.

Police say investigators tried to arrest Douglas in connection with the drug case about 7:40 p.m. Thursday, in the apartment complex parking lot in the 500 block of North Quentin Road. According to police, Douglas put his vehicle in reverse, slamming it into a parked vehicle behind him, then accelerated his vehicle forward in an attempt to run down the two officers.

Police said one of the officers, fearing for his life, shot at the vehicle. When the 10-year veteran of the Palatine Police Department fired at the vehicle, he apparently hit the suspect in the knee, but the suspect was able to exit the parking lot and flee to 1469 North Winslowe Drive. Police caught up with him at the location, where they expected him to be. He was found injured with a gunshot wound near his knee, and paramedics were called about 7:58 p.m.

Douglas was transported to Northwest Community Hospital by Palatine Fire Department paramedics. On Friday morning, Douglas was released from the hospital, where he was under guard by police. He was then transported in full police custody, and appeared in court on felony charges Monday of attempted murder and aggravated assault. He was also charged with two counts of unlawful delivery of cannabis stemming from the police confrontation. A Cook County Rolling Meadows Circuit Court judge set his bail at $1.25 million.

Douglas could face up to 30 years in prison if he is convicted of the attempted murder charge.

Members of the Cook County State’s Attorney Office, Illinois State Police Public Integrity Task Force, and Palatine Police Department are investigating the case.

Michael A. Douglas is scheduled to return to court July 18, 2016 for a pre-trial hearing.
