Chicago Woman Charged with DUI Crash After Street Fight

A party in the Gresham neighborhood over the weekend reportedly ended with a fight in the street. Denise Carter, of Chicago, allegedly jumped in her car, pulled a U-Turn, accelerated, and drove straight into the crowd that had gathered. The impact broke a woman’s shoulder and knee according to prosecutors, the rest of the group was able to get out of the way.

Carter’s BAC content allegedly registered .175 percent when she was arrested early Saturday morning. She was held on a $125,000 bond early Sunday morning by a Cook County judge. She is charged with aggravated DUI along with various traffic offenses. Carter already has a driving under the influence case pending against her from an incident in August.

Carter allegedly told officers that she was trying to escape the fight when the injured woman jumped in front of her vehicle. She was pulled from her vehicle and attacked by bystanders after the crash according to police.

I am very grateful for your work and representation. Although it is difficult for me to truly express my gratitude through e-mail, I hope you can still understand how thankful I am that we were able to dismiss my case on the first court date. I am very pleased with the outcome. Again, thank you very much for your time. Please enjoy the rest of your week. D.K.
