Man Charged With DUI After Being Told By Police Not To Drive Home
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.
