A Moline man was ordered to serve two years of probation after he pleaded guilty Thursday to felony counts of aggravated driving under the influence of alcohol and aggravated driving on a revoked license.

If Jeremy R. Spellious, 25, completes the terms of his probation, he will not be required to serve a stayed 180-day jail sentence.

He was charged with the revoked license count after driving a 1998 Buick LeSabre in East Moline on Jan. 2, according to records.

His drinking charge stems from a separate incident on March 3 when he nearly struck a police squad car while driving the LeSabre in Rock Island. The officer followed, eventually pulling over Mr. Spellious, who appeared intoxicated, according to information at Thursday's hearing in Rock Island County Circuit Court.

An additional charge of driving on a revoked license, in connection with the March incident, was dismissed Thursday.

Mr. Spellious was convicted in 2007 of a DUI in Henry County and two offenses of driving on a revoked license in Rock Island County — one in 2009 and another in 2011 — according to records.

At Thursday's hearing, Judge F. Michael Meersman suggested Mr. Spellious get rid of his car to also get rid of the "temptation."
