Anyone who has visited a mall at this time of the year likely knows of the chaos that could be encountered. As people across the country shop for holiday gifts, the malls -- and their parking lots -- become more crowded than at any other time of the year. The extra traffic in a parking lot could easily create confusion for a driver in Illinois. Unfortunately, one man now faces a DUI charge after an off-duty police officer claimed that he was driving erratically.
There are many people who a person encounters throughout the course of his or her life that has a profound influence on them. When the vast majority of people are asked who had a major impact on their life, they frequently respond with the name of a former teacher or coach. Unfortunately, one man who serves as a teacher and a high school basketball coach in Illinois may be remembered for the DUI charge he now faces rather than his contributions to the basketball court and classroom.
Being a school bus driver has its challenges and stresses. In such a position, a single person has the responsibility of likely more than 30 students at a time on his or her shoulders. They must drive them home or to school safely while also monitoring and controlling their behavior on the bus -- oftentimes with no additional support personnel. However, one county in Illinois is claiming that one bus driver handled this stress in a unique, and illegal, manner. The driver now faces a DUI charge.
