The police chief of Robbins, Illinois has been charged with driving under the influence for the second time. Johnny Holmes, 66, was stopped in Midlothian on Saturday night after police received a 911 call from a woman reporting that he nearly hit her car. According to police, they attempted to stop his vehicle about a half-mile from his home but Holmes waited until he was about a half block from his home before pulling over. Officers claim they found a flask in his jacket and his BAC was over twice the legal limit.
The mayor and village board will meet to decide the police chief’s future employment. Holmes says he is embarrassed by the incident and apologizes to the community. His first DUI arrest occurred in 2010 and he received court supervision. He now faces six charges including two counts of DUI and illegal transportation of alcohol.
