URBANA, Ill. (AP) - A Rantoul man is jailed on $150,000 bond after being accused of running a car off of a central Illinois freeway and ramming it.

The (Champaign) News-Gazette (https://bit.ly/1EXEa3i) reports 53-year-old Brian McStay of Rantoul was arrested Saturday on an aggravated battery count.

A prosecutor says McStay was driving a sport utility vehicle Jan. 13 on Interstate 57 near Tolono when he began tailgating a car occupied by three women.

Authorities say one of the women called 911 to report the unfolding encounter, but the SUV hit the car from behind, knocking it into a ditch. Investigators say McStay then hit the car broadside and drove away before being found parked about a mile away.

There were no serious injuries.



Online court records don’t show whether McStay has an attorney.
