Terrance D. Godfrey, 39, of Joliet, IL, pretended he could not speak or hear when police stopped him a few weeks ago.
Godfrey ran away from the scene when his ruse was discovered to be an act. He was charged with resisting arrest and obstructing a police officer on Oct. 15.
Will County police stopped Godfrey and his friend Brandon C. Nesbitt, 22, after their car crossed into oncoming traffic three times. Nesbitt was the one who told the police that Godfrey was mute and deaf.
The police discovered the act when they noticed Godfrey was sweating, despite cold weather, and after he responded to a verbal command. Godfrey tried to run away when an officer went to handcuff him, but another officer knocked down him down.
Godfrey went to trial on Nov. 4.
