Chicago Police Officer Unsuccessfully Attempts to Avoid DUI Charge

March 3rd, 2012 at 1:53 am

In the United States, drunk driving is a crime that crosses all boundaries such as sex, race, and socioeconomic levels. In fact, even police officers who are sworn to follow the law may have a habit of drinking too much on occasion. Unfortunately, law enforcement officials don’t always act honestly or appropriately when suspected of drinking and driving. For instance, according to The Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago police officer Sean Patrick Dailey currently faces disorderly conduct charges for allegedly attempting to get out of a DUI charge.

Chicago police vehicleApparently, In 2010, a Niles police officer stopped Dailey for speeding and failing to stop at a stoplight, after he left a Niles bar.  According to reports, Dailey admitted that he had been drinking, and after telling the Niles officer that he was a Chicago police officer, asked to leave the vehicle and make arrangements to get a ride home via cell phone. Almost immediately thereafter, the Niles officer left Dailey at the scene when he was dispatched to respond to a large bar fight at another local bar, which later proved to be fictional. Dailey wasn’t charged with DUI – that time.

An investigation by the Niles Police eventually showed that the 911 telephone call resulting in the Niles officer being dispatched to Cheers was in fact made by Dailey, who claimed that he had witnessed the fight. Dailey, who incidentally, later ended up in jail for another DUI in Niles, now must contend with a much more serious charge – disorderly conduct, on which he is being held with a $10,000 bond.

This ultimately failed attempt to avoid getting a DUI should serve as a warning – if you’re facing DUI charges in Chicago, don’t take questionable actions in trying to get out of a DUI on your own. Instead, contact an experienced Rolling Meadows, Illinios DUI defense lawyer for assistance in resolving a DUI charge.
