Chicagoland: Drunk Driver Crashes Car at 142 m.p.h.; Gets 2 Years of Court Supervision

Via Sun-Times:
A Shorewood man who authorities said was driving drunk at 142 mph when he crashed his 2008 Dodge Charger was sentenced Monday to court supervision and community service work. Dean Suominen, 37, avoided a possible jail term by pleading guilty to drunken driving and reckless driving charges stemming from the Jan. 10, 2012, crash in Naperville. Suominen was driving on Ogden Avenue in the western suburb about 1 a.m. when he lost control of the car, which struck a curb, flew into the air, then rolled into the support post of a billboard. The car virtually disintegrated around him, shedding the engine and two tires, but Suominen survived with minor injuries, authorities said. . .

How do you know put someone in jail who acted with such recklessness? Everything is broken in Chicago. - Greg Pollowitz
