Illinois man wanted in Carroll arrested on multiple charges
An Illinois man wanted on outstanding Carroll County warrants for seriously injuring a Carroll Police Department officer was taken into custody over the weekend. Twenty-eight-year-old Dennis Guider Jr. of Chicago Heights, Ill. was booked into the Cook County jail on multiple charges from Illinois law enforcement and is being held without bond.
Guider refused to comply with officers’ commands to exit the vehicle during a March 5, 2021 traffic stop and attempted to flee. Guider struck Officer Patrick McCarty, who landed on the hood of the suspect’s car. Authorities say Guider reached speeds up to 60 mph before striking a culvert and throwing the officer from the vehicle. McCarty sustained a fracture to his back following that incident but was back on patrol last summer after making a full recovery. Guider fled back to the Chicago metro after stealing a car from Salinger Avenue. It is unclear if Guider will be extradited to Iowa as he faces numerous felony charges in Illinois, including felony weapons and parole violations.
