A drunk driving arrest and conviction means drastic changes for the driver. Not only will he or she face fines and other penalties, perhaps including jail time, but there will be administrative consequences to deal with. Illinois and nearly every other state includes some kind of license suspension as part of the price to pay for a DUI conviction. Seeking to have one's license reinstated is not always an easy process.
A recent late-night collision sent one man to the hospital and the other into police custody. Illinois police arrested the driver accused of causing the wreck on a DUI charge. Another vehicle suffered damage from flying debris, but no one inside was injured.
