SOBERING: Bad Timing For Drunk Driver

A 911 call of people fighting in the alley attracted several police units to the 3300 block of Halsted this morning. Officers did not see anyone fighting.

They did, however, see a drunk driver almost run over a bunch of people crossing the street at Roscoe and Halsted.

DUI arrest made at 826 W. Roscoe.
