Driver Charged Suspected of DUI After Stopping SUV, Blocking Traffic in Middle of Hawthorne St West of Douglas Ave, Arlington Heights

Driver arrested, suspected of DUI on Douglas Ave, Arlington Heights after police received a 9-1-1 call for a well-being check of a motorist.

Arlington Heights police arrested a suspected DUI driver at about 10:20 p.m. Monday June 17, 2019 near Douglas Avenue and Marshall Street Arlington Heights, IL after responding to a report that a driver was possibly impaired or in need of a check for well-being on Hawthorne Street near Douglas Avenue. Police received a report that a driver of an SUV was stopped in the middle of Hawthorne Street and was not moving when another motorist pulled up behind the SUV.

Police arrived in a few minutes and found the vehicle had moved to Marshall Street — parked eastbound at the curb just west of Douglas Avenue. As police arrived, the driver of the SUV turned southbound on Douglas Avenue and stopped for the police traffic stop on southbound Douglas Avenue between Marshall Street and Hawthorne Street.

The female driver of the SUV — a Honda Pilot — was given a field sobriety test, but refused to complete the walking portion of the test after apparently failing the initial part of the test. The driver was arrested at the scene and handcuffed.

Police transported the female driver in custody to Arlington Heights Police Department Headquarters. The driver’s Honda Pilot was towed to a police holding area.

The court date was not initially available.
