A man remained at the McHenry County Jail on Friday evening without bond on charges accusing him of jumping out a police car window to escape arrest.
Charges against Robert C. Ratkovich, 19, of the 400 block of Alma Terrace, Cary, previously were being handled in McHenry County's mental health court. Prosecutors, however, asked to remove him from the specialty court for failing alcohol screenings and not reporting for drug tests and meetings meant to help him with his recovery.
On March 30, McHenry County Judge Michael Feetterer ordered Ratkovich to remain at the McHenry County Jail.
Ratkovich is charged with burglary, criminal trespass to vehicles and resisting a peace officer. The most serious offense, burglary, is typically punishable by three to seven years in prison.
Police said Ratkovich broke into at least two cars in July, according to a criminal complaint filed in McHenry County court.
Officers arrested Ratkovich at the time, but he escaped the patrol car by slipping his hands and arms in front of him, rolling down the window, jumping out and running, the complaint stated.
