The vice chairman of the DeKalb County Republican Central Committee was arrested early Thursday morning for driving under the influence.
Andrew Nelms, 26, of the 32000 block of Pleasant Hill Road in Genoa, was arrested about 1:30 a.m., according to a news release from the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies were assisting a motorist whose vehicle was in a ditch on Somonauk Road south of Fairview Drive, according to the news release. Police arrested him for DUI and took him to the county jail.
Nelms posted $100 bond and his driver’s license, according to Lt. Joyce Klein at the DeKalb County Jail, who said that is the statutory bond for that charge. He was released from custody about 3:30 a.m.
Hello to a few years of lawyer fees, fees to the court, DUI classes, counseling, and more. And hopefully this never happens again.
