Update: man charged with Aggravated DUI, Joliet Police Officer charged with misdemeanor DUI in fatal crash that cost life of Berwyn Officer

Third update:  it appears that there was a chain reaction involving multiple vehicles.  According to the Sun-Times:

A man faces DUI charges in a crash Sunday on Interstate 55 that ultimately led to another collision, resulting in the death of a Berwyn police officer.

Rodrigo Marin, 42, is charged with two counts of aggravated DUI, leaving the scene of an accident, failure to render aid, driving without valid insurance and driving on a revoked license, according to Illinois State Police. He was also cited for failure to reduce speed and improper lane usage.

Marin was driving a 2006 Nissan Titan about 6 a.m. on I-55 when he lost control and crossed into another lane, striking the left side of a 2008 Hino Box truck driven by a 44-year-old man, state police said.

Both vehicles came to a stop in the right two lanes, and Marin allegedly ran off from the crash, state police said.

While the vehicles were blocking the lanes, a Dodge Durango slammed into the box truck, state police said.

Earlier stories focused on the driver of the vehicle in which the Berwyn officer was a passenger.  That driver is a Joliet police officer, who was charged with misdemeanor DUI.

From the Chicago Tribune:

A Joliet police officer faces drunken driving charges after a Berwyn police officer who was a passenger in her car died in a crash Sunday morning on Interstate 55 in Plainfield Township, officials said.

Charles “Chuck” Schauer, 33, who died as a result of the crash around 6 a.m., had been a 10-year veteran of the Berwyn Police Department, according to a statement from the agency. Berwyn Mayor Robert Lovero announced Schauer’s death in a post on social media, referring to his death as a “tragic traffic accident.”

“Please keep Officer Schauer’s family and friends, as well as all Berwyn police officers in your thoughts and prayers during this time of grief,” he wrote.

Erin Zilka, 35, of Plainfield, faces a charge of driving under the influence, according to Illinois State police. Joliet police released a statement Monday saying that Zilka, “a 12-year veteran, was involved in an off-duty vehicle crash on I-55 near Route 30 where her passenger was tragically killed.”

From the Chicago Sun-Times:

Zilka’s attorney, Jeff Tomczak, said her blood-alcohol test came up under the legal limit, but declined to specify the number. He said Zilka was friends with Schauer, and was in “a really bad way.”

“She’s absolutely devastated to a degree I can’t express verbally,” Tomczak said.

He said Zilka “came upon” an earlier accident in a “darkened” part of the road before crashing.

Zilka has been an officer with Joliet police for 6 years, and had served in Shorewood for another 6 years, Tomczak said. He said she is due in court March 18.

Zilka, of Plainfield, was also cited for driving too fast for conditions, state police said.

Dina Lohan arrested for DUI after crash

From the Mercury News:

Dina Lohan, the mother of actress Lindsay Lohan, was arrested Saturday evening on Long Island after she hit a car outside an Outback Steakhouse and was chased back to her house by the other driver.

According to online court records in Nassau County, Lohan, 57, was charged with driving while intoxicated, leaving the scene of an accident, operating an unregistered vehicle, operating an uninspected vehicle, driving without a license, and aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle in the 3rd degree.

She pleaded not guilty to all charges at her arraignment Sunday and has returned home, according to her attorney, Mark Jay Heller.

“She never had a sobriety test, and we take the position that they are not going to be able to establish that she was driving while intoxicated,” Heller said.

He confirmed she hit another car while leaving the steakhouse in the town of Merrick around 7 p.m. Saturday, but said “there was no real damage.”

Lohan did not stop after the accident. The man whose car she hit followed her to her house in the next town, North Merrick.

When police showed up, Lohan allegedly refused to get out of her car and, when she finally did, fell to the ground, TMZ reported. She then claimed to have had just one glass of wine and refused to take a breath test.

Lohan pleaded guilty to drunken driving and speeding charges in 2014. Because of that conviction, the current charge would be a felony.

He made the Pro Bowl twice – once in 2001 with the Broncos and again in 2005 with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Broncos’ Safety suspended for two games after DUI

From the Denver Post:

Broncos safety Kareem Jackson was suspended Tuesday for the final two games of the season for violating the NFL’s Policy and Program on Substances of Abuse.

The suspension stems from Jackson’s arrest on Sept. 19 for driving under the influence in Denver.

“I would like to apologize to the Broncos organization, my teammates and fans,” Jackson said in a Twitter post. “I understand the severity in my lapse of judgement and I will certainly not make this mistake again. I know I am fortunate to play in the NFL and am held to a high standard of professionalism and conduct.”

Jackson will forfeit $352,941 in salary and his suspension was announced a week after he was named AFC Defensive Player of the Week.

Jackson was pulled over at 11:48 p.m. on Sept. 19 (a Thursday) in the 1000 block of the Auraria Parkway in Denver. He was cited for speeding (25-39 miles per hour over the limit) and driving under the influence.

On Monday, Jackson pleaded guilty to one count of driving while ability impaired (DWAI). He was sentenced to 12 months supervised probation, ordered to perform 24 hours of public service and participate with MADD’s Victim Impact Panel.

In Colorado, DWAI is defined as the driver’s blood alcohol level of more than .05% but less than .08%. If the BAL is more than .08%, the driver will be charged with driving under the influence.
