WABASH CO., IL. (WFIE) - A Mt. Carmel man is accused of refusing to pull over and asking 911 dispatchers to have police stop chasing him.

I little while later, a deputy says he noticed the same man, 26-year-old Trevor Mitchell, driving without a seat belt on Friendsville Avenue.

Deputies say Mitchell would not pull over and held his hands out the window in a “peace sign."

They say he then called 911 through Onstar and told the dispatcher to have to police quit chasing him.

Deputies say he eventually pulled over at E 1000 Rd.

They say Mitchell is charged with Fleeing/Attempting to Elude a police officer, DUI (drugs), and Felony Disorderly Conduct (misuse of 911).
