Naperville Man with 6 DUI Arrests Declared Unfit for Trial

A Naperville man with six prior DUI arrests has been declared unfit for trial. George C. Ford, 37, “has been found unfit to stand trial right now, having been diagnosed with bipolar disorder,” said a spokesman for DuPage County State’s Attorney Joe Birkett.

A psychologist recently made the finding and the presiding judge continued the case to Aug. 5. However, it will likely take up to a year for Ford to receive treatment and be found fit for trial.

His DUI arrest record goes back at least as far as 2006. On June 10, 2006 Naperville police arrested Ford who was allegedly intoxicated and charged with three counts of DUI and one count of driving without a license as well as driving without insurance.

Ford was indicted in July 2006 by a grand jury on four counts of aggravated DUI after an arrest in Darien. He was subsequently arrested in Naperville on charges of driving without a license, improper lane usage and failing to notify the owner of a vehicle his car had struck that day.

Ford remained in custody in the DuPage County Jail under a “no bond” order.
