BMW Driver Threw Cash At Man He Hit Before Driving Away, Police Say

Police say a man having a dispute with a bar owner struck him with his BMW vehicle, then threw $150 out the window, asking him not to contact police, before leaving the scene.

Gereltsaikhan Bumdorj, 35, was charged with one felony count of aggravated battery and is being held in Cook County Jail on $100,000 bail, Fox Chicago reports. Bumdorj was reportedly fleeing a North Side karaoke bar after a conflict with the owner over a missing microphone when the incident took place on Dec. 22.

The 62-year-old man reportedly followed Bumdorj outside, at which point he was struck by Bumdorj's 2002 BMW convertible, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Police report that the man landed on top of the car and held on for about half a block, before Bumdorj hit the brakes abruptly, causing him to fly off the car and strike the pavement.

Bumdorj then exited his vehicle, threw $150 in cash at the man asking him not to contact the police, and then drove away, the Chicago Tribune reports. Bumdorj was arrested last Friday after the owner identified him.

Bumdorj is scheduled to appear in court Friday for a preliminary hearing, according to the sheriff's office.
