Time for re-training? Driver’s Ed teacher arrested for DUI

From the Chicago Tribune:

A Naperville Central High School driver education teacher facing drunken driving and theft charges is due in court this week, according to authorities.

Jeffrey Peterson, 54, and Carla Mooney, 49, took a taxi from a restaurant to their home in the 1300 block of East Gartner Road, Naperville, on May 29, but their credit cards were denied when they tried to pay the driver’s $7.40 fee, Naperville police Sgt. Lou Cammiso said Friday.

The lack of payment led to an argument, and police responded to the home just after 11 p.m., at which time an SUV pulled out of the garage and left, Cammiso said.

When it returned, police said they found Peterson behind the wheel and that he was intoxicated. Peterson was charged with DUI and theft of services. Mooney was charged with theft of services, resisting a peace officer and obstructing identification.

Susan Rice, director of communications for Naperville Unit District 203, said via email that Peterson has been a district employee for 30 years…

The district has made “an initial inquiry” into the matter, Rice said, but “does not comment on personnel issues including any disciplinary actions that may be taken.”
