The police chief of the South suburban Robbins has been arrested for drunken driving -- for the second time in three years -- authorities said.

Police in the nearby suburb of Midlothian said Robbins Police Chief Johnny Holmes was pulled over Saturday around 10:30 p.m. after another driver called to report someone driving erratically.

The police report says Holmes made an improper turn and failed at first to stop when officers turned on their emergency lights and siren.

The report says Holmes had a blood alcohol level of more than twice the legal limit.

After a 2010 DUI arrest -- also in Midlothian -- Holms was suspended with pay and received a warning from Robbins village officials.

A phone message left for Holmes at the police department wasn't immediately returned.
