A 30-year-old man from Lombard is facing charges that run the gamut from attempted murder to DUI following a domestic disturbance that escalated into a car-ramming incident and street brawl in Bolingbrook, Lt. Mike Rompa said.

Erik M. Granillo, 30, of 52 W. Anne, Lombard, was charged with attempted murder, fleeing and eluding, assault, aggravated battery, criminal damage to state supported property and DUI after officers took him into custody on Wednesday night, Rompa said.

Rompa said Granillo was apprehended after officers were called to the scene of a domestic disturbance—an ex-boyfriend attempting to make an entry into a residence on the 300 block of Lakeside Drive—at 8:45 p.m. Wednesday.

"The caller supplied dispatchers with a description of the offender's vehicle as it was leaving the area," Rompa said. "The man was identified as Erik Granillo of Lombard. Officers located Granillo driving the vehicle (a silver Ford Focus) and a traffic stop was attempted."

Rompa said Granillo continued to drive without stopping and made his way onto I-355.

"Bolingbrook officers had dispatchers notify Lombard police in an effort to locate him," Rompa said.

And then came a twist in the bizarre incident that ultimately led to Granillo's arrest—but not before a car crash and a fistfight.

"Granillo allegedly contacted the victim (described by police as a female Hispanic from Bolingbrook; age 23) and informed (her) he was on his way back to the residence with a gun and he was going to shoot the victim and any police," Rompa said.

Meanwhile, Bolingbrook officers monitored the neighborhood where the initial domestic disturbance was reported and one officer was stationed at the front door of the victim's residence, Rompa said.

"He observed Granillo, driving at a high rate of speed, deliberately crash into the front of the unoccupied squad car which was parked in front of the residence," Rompa said. "Granillo believed the squad car was occupied by an officer.

"The impact pushed the squad off the street and onto the front yard of the residence as the offending vehicle came to rest on the street."

Rompa said Granillo exited his vehicle and officers attempted to take him into custody. Granillo did not cooperate.

"Granillo fought with officers," Rompa said. "A Taser was deployed and he was then secured."

Rompa said Bolingbrook Fire Department personnel arrived on the scene and transported Granillo to Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital. Rompa said Granillo was treated for minor injuries and released.

Two officers also were treated and released for non-life threatening injuries, Rompa said. And the squad car suffered extensive damage.

Rompa said Granillo was interviewed, processed and transported to the Will County Adult Detention Facility. Final charges against Granillo are under review by the Will County State's Attorney's Office, Rompa said.
