Danny Sevilla, 33 y/o, has been a Chicago cop since 2008. Friday night (10/17/14) he. allegedly impaired, drove onto an I-57 exit ramp (in the wrong direction), which may or may not end his career.
A civilian saw Danny’s car headed the wrong way up the I-57 exit ramp and started laying on his horn in an effort to get Danny’s attention and to try to stop him from proceeding up the exit ramp and into oncoming I-57 traffic.
The continued honking caused Danny to stop and start, stop and start, and this stopping and starting permitted another civilian witness to catch up to Danny on foot, open the car’s door and jam the gear shift into the park position.
Cops showed up on scene and Danny, while apparently intoxicated, was cooperative. It is unreported as to whether or not he took FST’s (field / roadside sobriety tests) or provided a breath sample.
Cops must be held to a high standard then civilians, so this is a “Fail!”, but it is NOT an “EPIC Fail!”. The latter, the “EPIC” variety, would require some ass clownliness on Danny;s behalf (i.e. being banged up and driving a squad car, being on duty, pulling the “I’m a cop card”… something more dastardly than a simple poor decision to drink-drive on his own time in his own car and which resulted in no injury or harm); still, as I said, “cops must be held to a high standard then civilians”.
