Carlton Fisk, an MLB Hall of Famer, was arrested for a DUI in New Lenox, Illinois yesterday. The consequences for a DUI conviction in the Chicago area can include loss of driver’s license and potential jail time.
Early this morning, New Lenox police were notified of a truck that drove into the middle of a cornfield. When they arrived, they found Fisk to be passed out at the wheel. He refused a BAC test and his truck ended up getting impounded. Carlton Fisk was taken to the hospital for a checkup and has since been released.
Refusing to take a BAC test can be a risky move because you can get your license automatically suspended without any opportunity of applying for a restricted license or an ignition interlock device.
Above all, an automatic license suspension and other consequences depend on the nature of your case, where you were arrested, and if you have a criminal history.
However, no matter what the circumstances of your DUI arrest, every case deserves an experienced DUI defense attorney. If you need to find an attorney, let 1 800 DUI Laws put you in touch with local defense lawyers who are waiting to hear from you!
