Criminal Does O.J and Runs from the Police One Day!

Police are hunting for a Belleville man who faces charges for fleeing from police twice.
James Schaeffer, 53, was driving on Dutch Hollow Road in Belleville on July 3 when the five-o attempted to stop him. Schaeffer then fled from them and drove into unincorporated St. Clair County, where his vehicle crashed and flipped on Pecan Lane.
Schaeffer was treated for injuries at Memorial Hospital in Belleville, but then fled from the hospital prior to police arriving!
On Wednesday, Schaeffer was charged with fleeing and attempting to elude a police officer, a Class A misdemeanor, and driving with a revoked license, a Class 4 felony due to a previous conviction.
Schaeffer was not in custody as the Evening Whirl went to press. Anyone with information about his whereabouts can call their local police department or the sheriff’s department.
