Illinois man faces multiple felony drug charges

A Lake County traffic stop on the morning of Feb. 19 ended in the arrest of a known gang member for multiple charges related to drug possession and intention to distribute illicit substances. The local gang task force overseen by the Lake County Sheriff's Office was responsible for the arrest of the 22-year-old male. He had already been identified as a potential affiliate of a local gang by the sheriff's office before the arrest.

How police determine impairment by drugs

If police pull you over under suspicion of impaired driving, they may ask you to take a roadside breath test. While the law does not require you to submit to such a test until after police arrest you, you may agree to take the test and blow into the portable device. If the device shows your blood alcohol concentration to be under the legal limit of .08 percent, you may expect police to send you on your way. Not so fast.
