A 25-year-old man who has already served time in a 2011 case of drunken driving is heading back to prison, after being convicted of driving drunk last spring on Naperville’s far south side.
Ruben Cervantes-Harrier, of Bolingbrook, remained Monday in Will County Jail in Joliet, where he is awaiting transfer into the custody of the Illinois Department of Corrections.
Naperville police arrested Cervantes-Harrier about 1:44 a.m. April 8, after they received a 911 call from a homeowner on the 700 block of Kaiser Court, in the Timber Creek neighborhood.
Sgt. Bill Davis in April said police were called about “an intoxicated subject ringing the doorbell and refusing to leave.” The man, subsequently identified as being Cervantes-Harrier, fled in a blue, 2005 Chevrolet Impala before police could get to the home, Davis said.
Police patrol officers spotted the car traveling north on Plainfield-Naperville Road at Timber Creek Lane, Davis said. The car was curbed on the 3500 block of Tussell Street.
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.
Will County Circuit Court Judge Sarah F. Jones convicted Cervantes-Harrier of a felony charge of aggravated DUI while driving with a suspended or revoked license, according to court records. Jones on June 24 sentenced him to 18 months in prison, records showed.
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 in August 2012 sentenced him to a year in prison and ordered him to pay $985 in fines and legal fees.
An examination of court documents also revealed Cervantes-Harrier since 2007 has received more than a dozen traffic tickets.
