Prosecutors say he's a flight risk and requested the high bond.

Police say they were called to the Logan Square area Friday because he appeared to be using drugs in an SUV. They say he refused officers' commands to leave the vehicle and he accelerated toward them. Officers fired at him before using a stun gun.
