Emad Karakrah, 49, has been charged with felony counts of disorderly conduct and aggravated fleeing and a misdemeanor count of driving on a never-issued license, and also issued with three traffic citations after a motorist called police after spotting the ISIS flag flying from his silver Pontiac southbound in the 7700 block of South Kedzie at 9:18 a.m. During his arrest, he tells police that there is a bomb in the car and he will detonate it if they search the vehicle, however when a bomb squad, the FBI and Homeland Security search the car, no bomb is found. He is held on a $55,000 bond and is next scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 3.
