Police chief refuses to blow, charged with DUI

A Grayslake Police Chief has been charged with driving under the influence and possession of a firearm while under the influence, after he refused to blow into a breathalyzer last week in Kenosha County.

The man was off-duty, and had been out to dinner with his wife before he was involved in a head-on collision. He was driving on a side road, and erratically decided to turn south onto Route 45, but turned directly into an oncoming vehicle. No one in either car was injured. The police chief chose to evacuate his car, and was swaying in the street when Kenosha County officers arrived.

Kenosha County police found a loaded handgun on the man’s belt, and noticed that there were seven bullets loaded in it. They then proceeded to ask him to blow into a breathalyzer, in which he chose not to, stating that he was not drunk. He was handcuffed and taken to the local jail, where he later told police that he drank three drinks with vodka in them at dinner. His court date for these charges is set for May 23.
