A concerned caller notified 911 dispatch that a car was stopped in the middle of the roadway at 94th and Southwest Highway. The caller thought the car may have been involved in an accident.
When Oak Lawn police officers arrived on the scene they found David Kobylarczyk, in the driver’s seat, with the car in gear, the doors locked and the windows up. Kobylarczyk was conscious and the car did not appear to have any damage from an accident.
The officers claimed that when they told the driver to lower the windows, he struggled to do so and instead kept adjusting his seat belt and the gear shifter. Eventually, Kobylarczyk was able to unlock the doors according to the officers. One officer then reached inside the car, placed it in park and turned off the ignition.
The officer reported smelling alcohol from Kobylarczyk’s breath, who was only speaking polish and couldn’t be understood. The officers thought Kobylarczyk may have a medical condition and the Oak Lawn fire department dispatched paramedics to the scene.
Koblarczyk’s blood sugar levels tested normal ruling out a medical emergency. The police then took Koblarzyk into custody for driving under the influence of alcohol. Koblarczyk apparently did not like the idea of being handcuffed while on a gurney and began “trashing” his arms in an attempt to get up from the gurney, according to the police. He was strapped to the gurney and transported to Little Company of Mary Hospital.
Blood was drawn from Kobylarczyk and the that test was converted to find Koblarczyk allegedly had a blood alcohol content level of .406, more than 5 times the legal limit. Kobylarczyk was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, driving with a blood alcohol content greater than .08, one count of obstructing a police officer, and of course, improper parking on a roadway.
Kobylarczyk is a 29 year old white male who provided a Chicago address to the police on January 29th during his arrest.
