Ray briefly slowed down and stopped, but fearing for his safety, he left the scene.Ray’s license had been revoked for a prior offense, and the police had no sympathy when he returned to the area about an hour later.The State’s Attorney’s office approved Felony Charges and Ray was held on $250,000 bond.
First, Attorney Robert Callahan asked for and was granted a significant reduction in bond. Ray was released and was able to assist in the preparation of his defense.
