Pedro Mora-Aburto, 21, of DeKalb, was charged with aggravated driving under the influence.

DeKALB – A 21-year-old DeKalb man who fled from police, first in his car and then on foot, early Sunday remained in jail Monday unable to post $150 bail.

Pedro Mora-Aburto, of the 1300 block of North Annie Glidden Road, was charged with aggravated driving under the influence, driving with a revoked license, possession of marijuana and fleeing or attempting to elude police, court records show.

His blood-alcohol level was 0.165 percent about 4 a.m. Sunday when a Northern Illinois University police officer saw him squeal his car's tires and disobey a traffic signal near Annie Glidden Road and West Hillcrest Drive, court records show. Officers found marijuana along the space where they chased him on foot, court records show.

If convicted of the most serious charge, aggravated driving under the influence, Mora-Aburto could be sentenced to probation or up to three years in prison. He is next due in court July 31.
