GLEN ELLYN – An arrest warrant has been issued for the man who allegedly drove high school students to their prom in unincorporated Glen Ellyn while intoxicated, after he skipped a Tuesday morning court hearing.

Along with the $50,000 warrant issued for the arrest of Richard L. Madison, prosecutors made a motion to revoke his $330 bond this week, said DuPage County State's Attorney's Office spokesman Paul Darrah.

Madison, 54, of the 9900 block of Walnut Terrace, Palos Hills, faces two counts of driving under the influence of alcohol and one count of reckless conduct, which are class A misdemeanors, according to a DuPage County Sheriff's Office news release.

An employee of Limos Alive Party Bus, Madison 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 stated.

Some of the students became alarmed by Madison's alleged erratic driving on the way to the dance and called their parents, according to the release. Two Oswego police officers working security at the dance were notified. They then contacted the DuPage County Sheriff's Office, leading to Madison's arrest.
