  • An Infamous First: Des Plaines Man Charged with Texting While Driving, DUI

    From the Sun-Times:

    A Des Plaines man is among the first in the state to be charged under the new no-texting-while-driving law, which took effect Jan. 1.

    But that offense may be the least of the legal woes facing Terry S. Moore, who also was charged with felony drunk-driving following a traffic stop in Des Plaines early on Jan. 2, officials said.

    Moore, 39, was curbed about 4:25 a.m. in Des Plaines after a police officer saw him weaving between lanes on River Road in the northwest suburb, Des Plaines Police Chief Jim Prandini said.

    After his car was stopped, Moore was arrested and charged with felony drunk-driving — an offense based on his two prior DUI arrests, Prandini said.
