A Peoria Police lieutenant pulled over earlier this month will not be prosecuted for driving under the influence.
A press release from Peoria County State's Attorney Jerry Brady said Lt. Michael Boland blew a .019 during chemical testing shortly after his April 4 arrest. The Peoria County State's Attorney's Office received the Illinois State Police field report also obtained by 25 News via a Freedom of Information request, as well as an alcohol drug influence report, squad car video, and applicable statues.
Illinois statute 625 ILCS 5/11-501.2 states that a person with a blood-alcohol content of .05 or less cannot be considered under the influence of alcohol.
"Accordingly, Lt. Boland, by statute, was presumed not driving under the influence of alcohol at the time of arrest and will not be prosecuted for Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol," said Brady in a prepared statement.
