Special Prosecutor Requested in TV Reporter’s DuPage DUI

DuPage County prosecutors are asking that a special prosecutor be appointed in the DUI case of Chicago reporter Dave Savini due to a potential conflict of interest. According to a spokesman, a member of the DuPage County State’s Attorney’s office is a relative of Savini’s. If the request is granted, a special prosecutor from outside DuPage County would be assigned to the case.

Savini, a 47 year-old investigative television reporter for Chicago’s WBBM-Channel 2, was arrested January 4 after allegedly hitting a vehicle in the parking lot of a Naperville Taco Bell. According to police, when the other driver attempted to photograph Savini’s license plate, Savini allegedly pushed the driver and left the scene. The driver called police and Savini was stopped shortly afterward. Two children under the age of 18 were also in the vehicle. Savini reportedly failed a field sobriety test and a breath test resulted in a .134 BAC. Savini is charged with DUI, battery, endangering the health of a child, and leaving the scene of an accident.

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.
