$1M bond stands for Bolingbrook man who reportedly hit cop with car

A Will County judge ordered a $1 million bond to stand for a Bolingbrook man charged with hitting an officer with a stolen car.

On Monday, Johnathan N. Mosley, 27, of Bolingbrook appeared in court on video from the Will County jail. He was wearing an orange jail uniform and cradling his left arm, which was mostly covered by a white cast.

Mosley was injured in an incident Wednesday, in which Bolingbrook officers reportedly opened fire on him in an attempt to stop the allegedly stolen Hyundai Elantra he was driving, Bolingbrook police Lt. Anthony Columbus said. Mosley was struck by the gunfire, he said. 

Mosley allegedly struck an officer with the car after he drove it around emergency vehicles that responded to a fatal motorcycle crash on West Boughton Road, Columbus said. He reportedly led police on a chase until he was apprehended in Naperville. 

Mosley was taken to the Will County jail Thursday on a $1 million bond after being released from the hospital. 

Will County Judge Dave Carlson ordered a $1 million bond for Mosley to stand. Mosley will need to post 10 percent of his bond to be released from jail. 

Carlson asked Mosley what he does for work, since his affidavit of assets and liabilities showed he earned no income or possessed any assets.

Mosley said he lives with his mother and received support from the state government, such as being provided a phone. That surprised Carlson.  

“I don’t even get a phone from the government as a judge,” Carlson said. 

Carlson scheduled Mosley to appear in person at the courthouse Tuesday to review the bill of indictment. He told Mosley the most serious charge he faces is aggravated possession of a stolen motor vehicle, a felony that is punishable by four to 15 years in prison. 

Mosley has also been charged with possession of a stolen motor vehicle, aggravated battery, aggravated assault and aggravated fleeing or trying to evade officers.
