A 25-year-old man who served time in prison in a 2011 case of drunken driving has been arrested and charged again with driving drunk.
Bolingbrook resident Ruben Cervantes-Harrier remained Friday in Will County Jail in Joliet on $20,000 bail. He faces trial for the second time on a felony charge of aggravated driving under the influence of alcohol, according to records on file in Will County Circuit Court.
Naperville police arrested Cervantes-Harrier about 1:44 a.m. Tuesday, after responding to a 911 call from a resident of a home on the 700 block of Kaiser Court. That is in the Timber Creek neighborhood on the city’s far south side.
Sgt. Bill Davis said police were called concerning “an intoxicated subject ringing the doorbell and refusing to leave.” The man, later identified as Cervantes-Harrier, “fled in a blue, 2005 Chevrolet Impala prior to police arrival,” Davis wrote in an email.
Patrol officers soon spotted the car headed north on Plainfield-Naperville Road at Timber Creek Lane, Davis said. Police stopped the car on the 3500 block of Tussell Street, he said.
Cervantes-Harrier “was found to be under the influence of alcohol, and had a revoked driver’s license,” Davis said. He was arrested and charged with those crimes.
An examination of Will County court records revealed Romeoville police arrested Cervantes-Harrier on Feb. 27, 2011 on charges of aggravated driving under the influence of alcohol and driving without a valid license. A judge on Aug. 20, 2012 sentenced him to a year in prison and assessed fines and court costs that totaled $985, records showed.
Court records also indicated Cervantes-Harrier since 2007 has received more than a dozen traffic tickets. He has no criminal record in DuPage and Kane counties.
Cervantes-Harrier is scheduled to appear April 29 in court in the Naperville case.
