A 29-year-old man is scheduled to appear Friday in court, after being arrested over the Fourth of July holiday weekend in Naperville and charged with aggravated driving under the influence of alcohol.
Peter M. Riedy, of Lisle, remained Thursday night in DuPage County Jail on $70,000 bail. He is expected Friday to answer a felony count of aggravated driving under the influence with a suspended or revoked license, as well as charges of DUI, driving with a suspended license, possession of 2.5 grams or less of marijuana and speeding 15-20 mph over the posted limit, according to DuPage County Circuit Court records.
Riedy was arrested about 1:49 a.m. Sunday, after a Naperville police officer stopped him for speeding near Bailey Road and Washington Street, Sgt. Steve Schindlbeck said.
The officer allegedly found Riedy drunk behind the wheel of a green, 2004 Lexus, Schindlbeck wrote in an email. He offered no resistance and did not speak to the officer, Schindlbeck said.
Police seized the Lexus following Riedy’s arrest. Court records indicated he stands to lose the vehicle in a pending car forfeiture case.
It would be the second time Riedy lost a car following an arrest. He forfeited a 1993 Mercury in March 2009, court records showed.
Riedy has been arrested and charged at least twice with driving while his license was suspended, in April 2006 in Aurora and July 2007 in Naperville. The judges who later convicted him placed him on supervision and fined him each time, according to Kane County and DuPage County court records.
He was also arrested in September 2008 and May 2009, in misdemeanor cases of marijuana possession in Naperville, records indicated. He was found guilty and placed on supervision in both cases, and was ordered to perform 40 hours of community service work in the latter, records showed.
Riedy also was one of 15 teenagers and young adults who were ticketed by Naperville police for attending a May 2003 party where alcohol was being served. The party was held in a home on Black Stallion Court, in the Hobson Hollow area of the city’s far east side.
