A man who fled the scene of a “large fight” at a fast-food restaurant June 8 was arrested Tuesday, the Shiloh Police Department said.

Police responded around 8:20 p.m. June 8 to White Castle, 1141 North Green Mount Road. One subject was said to possess a bat; the other, a shotgun.

When police arrived, the suspect with the shotgun fled the scene. Police pursued the man, Johnathan Pham, 18, of Belleville, but called off the chase after the speeds reached unsafe levels, according to Shiloh police.

A warrant was issued for Pham’s arrest.

Pham was taken into custody by Shiloh police Tuesday and charged Wednesday with a variety of offenses, including aggravated fleeing, attempting to elude a police officer, speeding over 21 mph, aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and not having a FOID card.

Judge Jan Fiss set Pham’s bond at $25,000.
