Former attorney faces DUI charges after ramming police car

An otherwise unremarkable DUI arrest in Bond County appears to have acquired special significance because the suspect is a former attorney from Edwardsville. The suspect is facing 10 criminal charges, including a DUI, as the result of her alleged refusal to heed an officer's demand that she stop her vehicle and her intentional ramming of a police vehicle.

Drugs blamed for fatality in wrong-way accident

Many psychotropic medications have helped people in southern Illinois and elsewhere cope with disorders, such as depression and anxiety. Unfortunately, people who take the drugs often develop a dependence that may become an addiction. Because many of these drugs interfere with the brain's ability to control muscle function, an addiction to one of these drugs can lead to disastrous consequences. One such consequence occurred on I-255 near Godfrey when a driver's use of benzodiazepines lead to a head-on crash and one fatality.

Driver using revoked license charged with third DUI

The urge to drive a car sometimes seems like it is programmed into human DNA. Even seven convictions for driving with a revoked license were not a sufficient deterrent for a Washington Park man who was recently arrested for allegedly driving with a revoked license and suspicion of drunk driving.

Martial arts teacher facing child pornography charges

Social media appears to be a fertile field for people who want to engage in sex crimes involving minors. Recently, a suspicious post on craigslist led police to a youth martial arts instructor who lives in Belleville. The man was arrested on suspicion of having committed a number of child pornography crimes.

Two suspects arrested after shooting at drive-thru

Shoot-outs are a common trope in crime and western novels and less commonly in real life. Nevertheless, suspects who are attempting to evade capture occasionally get caught in gun fights with police. A recent incident in East St. Louis may force the suspects to retain a competent criminal defense attorney to keep them from returning to prison.
