Saul Chavez is wanted by the FBI and the Chicago Police Department for his alleged involvement in a hit-and-run accident that resulted in the death of an elderly man in 2011.
On June 8, 2011, a sixty-six-year-old pedestrian was struck by a vehicle, allegedly driven by Chavez. After being struck, the pedestrian was dragged under the vehicle for approximately 265 feet and died as a result of his injuries. Chavez allegedly exited the vehicle and attempted to flee on foot. He was apprehended after a brief foot chase.
Chavez was charged with aggravated Driving Under the Influence (DUI)/death by the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois, and a state warrant was issued for his arrest on November 28, 2011. A federal arrest warrant was issued by the United States District Court, Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division, on January 9, 2012, after Chavez was charged federally with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
