YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: An Elmwood Park man who Upper Saddle River police said let five females out of his car as officers chased him — knocking one of them down as he sped off — was indicted on eluding and crack cocaine charges.

Jonathan Jachimczyk, 20, stopped long enough on northbound Route 17 man to allow four of his occupants out — then hit the gas, knocking the fifth to the ground, authorities said at the time.

The Nov. 6 chase ended when Jachimczyk abandoned the car in a residential neighborhood and a police dog tracked him down, they said.

Officers said they also found cocaine and packaging materials in the vehicle.

As a result, the grand jury in Hackensack on Friday charged Jachimczyk with eluding, cocaine possession and possession with the intent to distribute the drug.

He remained held on $150,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail.
