St. Charles police: Man driving on revoked license faces fifth DUI charge
A 43-year-old man faces prison after what authorities say was his fifth overall drunken driving arrest last weekend in St. Charles.
Raymond B. Manning, 43, of the 6N900 block of Riverside Drive, in an unincorporated area near St. Charles, faces charges of aggravated DUI-fifth offense, aggravated DUI-license revoked and no insurance, according to authorities and Kane County court records.
The charges stem from a traffic stop at 10:17 p.m. Saturday of Manning in his 2006 Jeep as he traveled west on the 2700 block of East Main Street in St. Charles, court records show.
St. Charles Deputy Police Chief Erik Mahan, the department spokesman, said a patrol officer was driving behind Manning and ran the vehicle registration, which showed Manning's license was revoked. The officer pulled over Manning, who admitted drinking, smelled of alcohol, had slurred speech and glassy eyes, and failed field sobriety tests, Mahan said.
Manning refused chemical tests and his Jeep was impounded, Mahan said.
According to court records, Manning was arrested and charged in February 2003 in Wheaton on charges of DUI, possession of under 2.5 grams of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, no insurance and driving while license suspended.
In October 2003, Glen Ellyn police arrested Manning on charges of felony disorderly conduct, driving while license suspended and failure to give information after striking an unattended vehicle, records show.
And in February 2005, Winfield police arrested Manning on charges of DUI and improper lane use.
Information about his other DUI cases was not immediately available.
Manning is being held at the Kane County jail on $75,000 bail, meaning he must post $7,500 to be released while the case is pending. If he does, he cannot drive and must wear an alcohol-monitoring device, records show.
Manning is next due in court April 17 and faces a minimum prison term of four years and maximum of 15 years if convicted of the most severe charge.
