A man who was on probation for two DUI cases earlier this year was arrested last weekend after he allegedly caused a t-bone crash while drunk in Buffalo Grove, prosecutors said.
Kevin Fallon, 68, was charged with aggravated driving under the influence (third offense), aggravated driving under the influence with a suspended license, improper left turn and operating an uninsured motor vehicle.
A Buffalo Grove police officer observed Fallon driving southbound on Route 83 on Sunday, Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Emma Smoler said.
Fallon allegedly turned left in front of another vehicle going northbound on Route 83 and caused a t-bone crash.
Two witnesses reported that Fallon was swerving and hit a curb prior to the crash, Smoler said.
When police arrived, Fallon was allegedly wandering around his car and had difficulty standing up.
He also had blood coming from his nose and officers smelled alcohol, Smoler said.
He allegedly showed signs of impairment during the field sobriety tests and was subsequently arrested for driving under the influence.
Officers learned Fallon has a suspended driver’s license and he is on probation for two other active DUI cases from January and March.
Fallon was released on his own recognizance in those cases.
Lake County Judge Theodore Potkonjak set Fallon’s bond at $350,000.
He later posted bail and was released, court records show.
A status hearing is scheduled for December 29.
