NORTHBROOK, IL – A Northbrook man who was warned not to drive after he called police to a tavern to help two sick women was arrested on a DUI charge, authorities said.

John Knox, 38, of the 2400 block of Maple Avenue made the call to police about 1 a.m. Sunday. Emergency vehicles responded to the scene near Walters and Western Avenues and a police officer, who warned Knox not to drive, helped direct traffic, police said.

The officer then saw Knox driving away from the bar in the wrong lane with no lights on, police said. He was cited for DUI and having no taillights.

    That is as dumb as three robbery suspects pulling over a squad to ask directions on how to get back to Chicago from the suburb they just committed the robbery in.

    What about the guy who used Duct Tape to cover his face to rop a gas station? That one beats all of these to me.

    These were funny. The McDonald's guy should (and is) get into trouble for using 911 for the wrong reason! I personally liked the tape-faced bank robber! What an idiot! lmao
