GLEN ELLYN – The DuPage County Sheriff's Office charged a limo driver with DUI and reckless conduct after he allegedly transported a group of high school students to their prom in unincorporated Glen Ellyn while intoxicated, according to a Sheriff's Office news release.
Richard L. Madison, 54, of the 9900 block of Walnut Terrace in Palos Hills, was charged with two counts of driving under the influence of alcohol and one count of reckless conduct, which are class A misdemeanors, on Saturday, according to the release.
Madison, an employee of Limos Alive Party Bus, was hired by 23 Oswego East High School students to drive them to their prom at the Abbington Banquets, 3S002 Route 53 in unincorporated Glen Ellyn, the release reads.
