Alleged Drunk Driver crashes into Lake Cty Sheriff’s Squad

From the Chicago Sun-Times:

A 67-year-old man was charged with DUI after he crashed into a Lake County Sheriff’s Deputy squad car early Monday in north suburban Beach Park.

Gregory G. Fowler, of the 38700 block of North Sheridan Road in Beach Park, was charged with a misdemeanor count of DUI and cited for failing to yield, according to a statement from the Lake County Sheriff’s Office.

At 2 a.m., the deputy was driving northbound on Sheridan Road approaching West Chaney Avenue in Beach Park, and Fowler was driving a 2001 Ford SUV headed southbound on Sheridan Road in the same area. Fowler made a left turn into the Beach Mobile Home Park directly in front of the sheriff’s squad car and the two cars crashed, police said.

No one was hurt in the crash.

Fowler was being held in the Lake County Jail on a $3,000 bond as of Monday afternoon.
