Roger L. Zetterberg, 23, of the 7700 block of 165th Place, was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, driving without insurance and speeding, according to an Orland Park police report.
Police said Zetterberg was driving a vehicle an officer spotted speeding on 159th Street and, later, lost his balance during tests for sobriety.
An Orland Park cop on patrol at about 1:08 a.m. on Oct. 4 clocked a Ford traveling 60 mph in a 40 mph zone near the intersection of 159th Street and 88th Avenue, the report states. Police followed the vehicle into Parkhill Plaza and performed a traffic stop.
Zetterberg handed police his driver's license but told the officer he didn't have insurance, the report states. Police said his eyes appeared to be bloodshot and that there was a strong odor of alcohol coming from the vehicle.
The driver told police he was trying to find a way into the fast food restaurant's parking lot, which was completely demolished.
Police asked Zetterberg to take tests for sobriety, during which he lost his balance and turned incorrectly, the report states. He then refused to take a breath test and was arrested.
