Mark Ditka’s Second DUI

Just reported on ABC Action News, Mark Ditka, son of the former Chicago Bears Football Coach Mike Ditka, has been charged with DUI and possession of a controlled substance.  Mark, 49 years old, was pulled over by police early Sunday morning just blocks away from his residential house in Deerfield, Illinois.  CBS Chicago reported police arrested Mark and cited him for not only DUI and possession of a controlled substance (an unmarked bottle of hydrocodone pills found in the car), but also for operating an uninsured vehicle, driving on a suspended license, and illegal lane change.  A buffet of legal charges.  OUCH, not a good way to start a Sunday morning!   This was Mark’s second DUI in 2012.  His first DUI occurred in May of 2012.  If Mark was in Washington State and charged with a second DUI  he would be facing a minimum of 45 days in jail, 90 days house arrest, and loosing his drivers license for 3 long years.
