The village manager for west suburban Westmont was charged with driving under the influence after he was pulled over while driving in a center turn lane in a neighboring town, police said today.

Ronald R. Searl, 54, was stopped shortly before midnight on July 3 after a Clarendon Hills police officer saw him turning into the parking lot of a business that was closed on 55th Street, Clarendon Hills Police Chief Ted Jenkins said.

By the time the officer turned around to investigate, Searl was allegedly driving westbound on 55th Street in the center turn lane.

The officer stopped Searl and noticed an odor of alcohol on his breath, Jenkins said.  Searl was arrested and taken to the station after he failed a field sobriety test. While at the station, a Breathalyzer test allegedly showed his blood-alcohol content was .112, which is over the legal limit of .08, according to Jenkins.

Searl was charged with driving under the influence and driving with a blood-alcohol content over .08, both misdemeanors.  He was also ticketed for driving in the wrong lane, Jenkins said.
