ROBBINS – A former suburban Chicago police chief arrested twice for drunken driving is still receiving a salary under a severance agreement.
Former Robbins Police Chief Johnny Holmes was arrested in December. Authorities said Holmes had a blood alcohol level of more than twice the legal limit.
He resigned in January. After a 2010 DUI arrest – also in Midlothian – Holmes was suspended with pay and received a warning from Robbins village officials.
The Chicago Sun-Times reported Holmes will get paid through April 19. He’s paid nearly $2,000 every two weeks.
He didn’t respond to messages seeking comment.
