Olney man charged with aggravated fleeing & eluding as a result of rolling domestic dispute

MARION COUNTY, IL — A 41-year-old Olney man was charged Monday in Marion County Court with two felony counts for aggravated fleeing and eluding police and unlawful restraint that stem from a rolling domestic dispute and high-speed pursuit Monday through Marion County.

Adam Lewis Lee was charged Monday with Class 4 felonies for the pursuit and for keeping a woman in the truck he was driving that was reportedly stolen.

He took officers from multiple agencies on a pursuit for nearly an hour Sunday that ended when Centralia officers used a pit maneuver to stop his truck. The truck ultimately flipped and landed on its roof.

The female passenger in the truck was airlifted from the scene and taken to Deaconess Hospital in Evansville, Indiana for treatment of head injuries.

Lee was treated at Salem Township Hospital for minor injuries. He was transported to the Marion County Jail following his release from the hospital.

Lee was charged Monday with Class 4 felonies for the aggravated pursuit and unlawful restraint of his female passenger.

He was also charged with multiple misdemeanors for speeding more than 35 miles an hour over the limit and through a construction zone, and driving while license suspended.

He remains in the Marion County Jail.
