Knoll is charged with possession, dealing and driving while suspended.

Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky all have laws requiring drivers to safely slow down and move over for emergency vehicles.

The laws are intended to protect not just law enforcement but firefighters, paramedics, tow truck operators and maintenance workers too.
