May 25, 2008 – Springfield, Illinois. This next story is really infuriating. Politicians that are involved in creating our laws simply should not break them. A Republican state representative from Illinois was arrested for DUI.
Bob Biggins was arrested early Wednesday while driving through downtown Springfield. It is not shocking that police have revealed very little about the facts of the case. I found this very typical when prosecuting. Some defendants are afforded more secrecy than others. At least Biggins owned up to his mistake quickly and released the following statement:
“I made a serious lapse in judgment and sincerely apologize to my family and those I represent who may be disappointed today. I take full responsibility for my actions and will face any and all legal consequences.”
