Suburban Chicago officer charged in fatal crash

CHICAGO – A suburban Chicago police officer accused of killing two people in a wrong-way collision on Chicago’s Lake Shore Drive appeared briefly in court Sunday and a judge set bail at $500,000.

During the hearing, prosecutors said 35-year-old Terrell Garrett’s blood alcohol content after Friday’s wreck was measured at 0.184, which is more than twice the legal limit of 0.08. The North Chicago police officer is charged with two counts each of reckless homicide and aggravated driving under the influence of alcohol.
