Bob Biggins DUIMay 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.”

    What goes around, comes around.

    I used to live on the same street as this guy.

    It was Halloween, six years ago. My friend and I rang the doorbell twice as we watched him through the window, sitting in his front room, ignoring us.

    I hope the law teaches him some manners and respect.

    A friend of mine went to Springfield to talk to Mr. Biggins about education reform. When he emerged from the legislature, he “reeked of alcohol.” This is not an isolated incident.
