He should know better! –
May 18, 2019 – The trooper informed Reick his blood alcohol level measured at .146, and Reick said he wasn’t sure what the legal limit was in Illinois. The trooper told him the legal limit is .08. Reick was charged with DUI and booked into the Sangamon County Jail, but released the next morning. He was due back in court on May 30.
In a statement after his arrest, Reick said he “made a stupid and regrettable decision.” Reick’s arrest came about a month after Rep. Kambium Buckner (D-Chicago) also was arrested for DUI in Springfield, after police spotted his car stopped for several cycles at a traffic light, with Buckner asleep behind the wheel. Buckner told police he was just exhausted, but he allegedly failed several field sobriety tests, and declined to provide a Breathalyzer test. Buckner has pleaded not guilty.
