A man who had an ISIS flag waving from his vehicle is facing several charges after he threatened police with a bomb Wednesday morning when he was pulled over on the Southwest Side.

Emad Karakrah, 49, was charged with felony counts of disorderly conduct and aggravated fleeing; and a misdemeanor count of driving on a never-issued license, according to Chicago Police. He was also issued three traffic citations.

Owen said police were called after someone spotted the vehicle with an ISIS flying out the window.  Officers attempted to pull him over, but he took off and was stopped by another officer after he ran several red lights.

“The man told police during his arrest that there was a bomb in the car and he would detonate it if they searched the vehicle, according to the report,” Owen added.

A bomb squad, the FBI and Homeland Security searched the car but found no bomb…

Karakrah is currently being held on a $55,000 bond.
