Drunk driving accident caused by Grayslake Police Chief

A Kenosha County car accident resulted in the arrest of the Grayslake Police Chief last week in Wisconsin.

One witness to the car accident states that the police chief’s vehicle was traveling close behind her on a frontage road next to Route 45. She thought that his vehicle would continue behind her, until she heard tire screeches and saw that the vehicle had attempted to turn south, ultimately striking an oncoming vehicle head-on.

No injuries were reported in the collision, but when Kenosha County police arrived on the scene, they could tell that the Grayslake Police Chief was clearly intoxicated. The 46-year-old was outside of his vehicle, noticeably swaying. He smelled of intoxicants and refused to take part in a sobriety test.

He was arrested and charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated. As he was being processed at the jail, he revealed to authorities that he may have consumed some alcohol, which earlier he had vehemently denied, but that he was in no way intoxicated at the time of his arrest.

An official investigation into this drunk driving accident has been started by the Grayslake Police Department. The man will return to court on May 23.
