DuPage County Republican chairman and state Rep. Randy Ramey was charged Sunday with driving under the influence of alcohol.
Ramey, of Carol Stream, took responsibility in a statement.
“On Sunday morning I was issued a citation by the Carol Stream Police Department for driving under the influence of alcohol,” Ramey said in the statement. “I regret and take full responsibility for my actions, and I am prepared to face the consequences. I am deeply sorry to disappoint my family and my constituents.”
Carol Stream Police Chief Kevin Orr said Ramey was stopped at 2:10 a.m. Sunday because “he was basically crossing over the centerline on Lies Road” near Bedford Drive.
