Chicago Man Flees Courthouse While Jury Deliberates Case

DuPage County authorities are searching for a man accused of leaving a courthouse before a jury rendered a guilty verdict against him in another case.

According to authorities, 37-year-old Kary Bush, who was free on bond in connection with the 2018 case, allegedly left the courthouse while the jury was deciding his fate. Bush was facing charges of Aggravated Fleeing and Eluding, in which he travelled up to 120 MPH along Interstate 88 while attempting to flee police.

The jury deliberated for approximately 30 minutes and found Bush guilty, but he did not return to the courtroom following the verdict.

A no-bond arrest warrant has been issued for Bush, according to the DuPage County State’s Attorney.

“The allegations that Mr. Bush decided to leave the Courthouse just prior to a jury returning a Guilty verdict are outrageous,” DuPage County S.A. Robert Berlin said. “His alleged actions, coupled with the fact that Mr. Bush was out on bond while his case was pending demonstrate this defendant’s complete disregard for the rule of law. This type of behavior will not be tolerated and I am confident that Mr. Bush will be apprehended and find himself once again in a DuPage County courtroom where he will be held accountable."

No mugshot of Bush was available.
