Miquelon remains fully employed at Walgreen, said Walgreen spokesman Michael Polzin. "It's a personal matter and we won't comment on personal matters," Polzin said.

Miquelon is expected to be at Second Municipal District Court in Skokie on Friday on the most recent case. He was arrested in Kenilworth on Sept. 25 for operating his vehicle's wipers without headlights and driving on a suspended license. His blood alcohol level was over 0.08 percent, said court spokeswoman Blanca Jara, citing court records.

On Sept. 12, 2009, he was arrested in Glencoe for improper lane usage, speeding and being intoxicated. He refused a Breathalyzer test, The improper lane and speeding charges were later dropped. He was given supervision until May 2011 and he paid a fine of $1,150, she said.

Miquelon joined Walgreen in June 2008 from Springdale, Ark.-based Tyson Foods Inc., where he was an executive vice president and CFO since 2006, according to walgreens.com.
