Party Bus Driver Faces DUI Charges After Driving Teens to Prom

Limo/Party bus driver, Richard Madison, 54, of Palos Hills is charged with DUI after driving 24 students to their high school prom. The teens reportedly witnessed Madison jump a median and cut off three cars before taking the teens to the wrong hotel 5 miles from their actual destination. There were also reports that the driver had red eyes and was stumbling. Some of the students called their parents due to the erratic driving. Two off-duty police officers handled the situation when the limo arrived at the prom. Madison was subsequently arrested by DuPage County Sheriff’s deputies for driving under the influence of alcohol and reckless conduct.

Madison’s BAC was allegedly six times the legal limit for a person operating with a commercial driver’s license (CDL). The legal limit is .04 for CDL drivers. Madison claims mechanical issues were at fault and he is innocent of the allegations.
