Chicago Heights Man Arrested After Sitting at Green Light with Eyes Closed

A 22 year old man was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence after a police officer saw him hunched over his steering wheel while sitting at a green light.

The officer walked up to the truck and tapped on the drivers window, at which point the man opened his eyes. Police said the car smelled of alcohol and the man had a hard time keeping his eyes open. He was arrested and taken to the Tinley Park Police Department after failing field sobriety tests. The Tinley Park officer reported he had a blood alcohol content of .225, well over the legal limit.

The man stated that he had been drinking with co-workers and thought he was driving westbound on 67th Street in Chicago. Police officers reported that he was actually facing south on Oak Park Avenue at the intersection of 183rd Street.

He was also charged with driving on a suspended license, which was revoked for a previous DUI.
