North Aurora Deputy Chief Scott Buziecki said officers were called to the 200 block of East Arrowhead Street at 9:47 p.m. Sunday for a report of a hit and run with injuries and property damage.

Officers learned Richard and his 19-year-old stepson got into an argument that escalated to Richard kicking down a door and attacking the victim, who ran outside the house and into the backyard, according to police.

"Richard then got into his vehicle, drove to the rear of the house (which has a garage behind the house), struck the victim with his vehicle, and then struck the rear of the house, causing extensive damage," Buziecki wrote in an email. He added the teen's injuries were not life-threatening and he was taken to Presence Mercy Hospital in Aurora.

Richard drove off but was later found at his house on the Larkspur by Batavia police officers.

If convicted of all the charges, he faces a punishment of probation to up to eight years in prison.

Richard is free after posting bail and is next due in court Dec. 15.
