An Arlington Heights man with multiple aliases and multiple DUI convictions faces a seventh charge of driving under the influence of alcohol.

Cook County Judge Jill Cerone Marisie on Monday set a $500,000 bond for Georgi Grigorov, 32, of the 200 block of Happfield Drive, saying the defendant has five different names and operates "under the radar."

With at least four convictions and two pending DUIs, "the defendant definitely poses a safety issue to the public," Marisie said.

Schiller Park police arrested Grigorov Saturday after he crossed over the centerline into oncoming traffic while driving his 2009 BMW X6 south on River Road, authorities said. The officer detected from Grigorov a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage and noticed that he had slurred speech and bloodshot, glassy eyes, said Cook County Assistant State's Attorney Moe Ahmad, adding that Grigorov failed field sobriety tests and refused to submit to a Breathalyzer test.

Grigorov produced proof of insurance and a New Mexico driver's license issued in 2013 listing his name as Solbon Balzhinimaev, Ahmad said. According to authorities, Grigorov has four revoked Illinois driver's licenses, all with different names and all revoked for DUI. In addition to aggravated DUI, he also faces charges of driving while his license is revoked and unlawful possession of fictitious identification.

Grigorov, who has DUI cases pending in Cook and DuPage counties, next appears in court Nov. 14. If convicted of the class X felony, Grigorov faces from six to 30 years in prison.
