BROOKFIELD — A Lyons man was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol early Christmas morning after he drove himself to the Brookfield police station to report an alleged assault, according to police reports released Monday.
James J. Johnson, 42, of the 4000 block of Gage Avenue in Lyons, was arrested at 1:30 a.m. Dec. 25. Police had previously spoken with Johnson after an altercation at a local bar just a few hours before, about 11:30 p.m. Dec. 24, where they told him not to drive his car.
