Police work the scene of a standoff Friday, July 12, 2019, in the 2600 block of Rainbow Avenue in Bloomington.

BLOOMINGTON – A Bloomington man charged with robbery and two counts of aggravated fleeing from police Friday hopes to have his bond reduced.

Thomas B. Lewis, 36, remains in McLean County jail in lieu of posting $2,535 but intends to ask the court to lower that amount and indicated in court on Monday he would be able to post $1,535.

Court documents indicate Lewis was involved in a domestic dispute which started before noon Friday in the 1100 block of Maplewood Drive in Normal. Officers located him but then he fled the scene. He was taken into custody following a standoff in the 2600 block of Rainbow Avenue, Bloomington.

The robbery charge is “due to an item of value being taken from the victim’s person during the incident,” Normal Police Chief Rick Bleichner said last week.

Lewis is due in court for arraignment on the robbery and aggravated fleeing charges Aug. 2.
