A Berwyn woman was arrested for DUI after she reportedly rear-ended a vehicle on Desplaines Avenue and Jackson Boulevard late on April 20.

When an officer arrived at the scene of the accident, 23-year-old Stephanie Craig reportedly admitted that she ran into the victim’s vehicle. When the officer asked if she had been drinking, Craig gave him four different accounts of the night’s events: two drinks, four Coronas at her friend’s house, four mixed drinks at Slainte and, finally, three Bud Lights at Wrigley Field.

Craig was asked to perform field sobriety tests and failed all of them. She was arrested and at the station, where she submitted to a Breathalyzer test and blew a .283 – more than three times the legal limit of .08.

Craig was charged with two counts of DUI, and single counts each of speeding and causing an accident.

Thief goes after frozen food

Police arrested a Riverside man, early on April 23, who was caught exiting the rear-door of Starship Subs, 7618 Madison St., with two boxes of frozen food in his hands.

The reporting officer was responding to the store’s alarm, and when he arrived, he saw 22-year-old Laisvunas Labanauskas exiting the store with boxes of frozen carrots and packages of Capicola, which he allegedly took from inside. The items were valued at $55.

According to the police report, Labanauskas seemed intoxicated and told the reporting officer that he was drinking at Doc Ryan’s before he arrived at Starship. When he got there, he said he found two boxes of food in the middle of the alley, went through them and found the food, after which, police arrived.

Labanauskas was taken into custody and after police checked his identification, it was learned he is a Lithuanian immigrant who might have been in the United States illegally since 2005. At press time, immigration authorities could not be reached to confirm Labanauskas’ status.

Local police charged him with burglary.
