State legislator from Woodstock charged with DUI
State Rep. Steven Reick was charged Wednesday with driving under the influence of alcohol in Sangamon County, state police confirmed Thursday.
Reick, a Woodstock Republican, is scheduled to appear in Sangamon County circuit court on May 30, the State Journal-Register in Springfield reported.
The state police also ticketed Reick for driving 15 to 20 mph above the speed limit and for committing a turn signal violation, authorities said.
WCIA-TV reported Reick was arrested at the intersection of South Grand Avenue and Eastdale Drive about midnight.
The State Journal-Register reported Reick issued a one-sentence statement Thursday evening via a spokeswoman: "I made a stupid and regrettable decision last night and accept full responsibility for my actions."
Neither Reick nor his office staff could be reached for further comment Thursday evening.
Reick represents the 63rd House District, which includes parts of McHenry County.
