A call about a suspicious car just off of Harlem Avenue led to drunken driving charges, police said.
Nikola P. Zecevic, 26, of the 1600 block of North Hudson Avenue, Chicago, was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and DUI with a blood-alcohol limit greater than 0.08, according to a Palos Heights police report.
Cops were called about around 9:20 p.m. on Aug. 25. Police investigated a report of a suspicious vehicle in the 13000 block of South 71st Avenue.
When officers arrived, they found a driver sleeping in his vehicle, police said. The driver, Zecevic, showed signs that he was intoxicated.
Zecevic was arrested after he reportedly failed tests for sobriety, police said. He provided a breath sample that resulted in a BAL over the legal limit while in custody.
Bail was set at $3,000. Zecevic is due on Sept. 27 in Bridgeview court.
