If you do “donuts” in a parking lot, there’s a very good chance that the police won’t notice. Do donuts on Cicero Avenue at about 106th Street and you shouldn’t be surprised if the Oak Lawn Police want to have a talk with you.
On January 13th at about 3:30 a.m., an Oak Lawn police officer reported that he witnessed a Nissan spin around several lanes of Cicero Avenue making two deliberate “donuts” before swerving tires over several lanes of traffic, forcing southbound traffic to slow down as it turned into the McDonald’s parking lot.
The officer described the driving as being done with wanton and willful disregard of the safety of other vehicles and their occupants.
Since the officer was at the scene, he followed the driver, Aladin O. Jameleddin into the McDonald’s parking lot and initiated a traffic stop. Jameleddin was unable to produce his license and couldn’t tell the officers why he didn’t have it available.
As the officer and Jameleddin were speaking, the officer alleged that he smelled the odor of alcohol. He also alleged that Jameleddin slurred his speech and exhibited a slow manner of speaking.
While speaking with the officer, Jameleddin allegedly was falling asleep. He did say he was sorry and that it was an accident. He denied losing control of his vehicle and blamed the driving on bald tires. The police claimed that his tires did not appear bald.
Jamaleddin performed field sobriety tests but refused to submit to a breathalyzer according to the police. He allegedly told the police that he drank a beer but then denied drinking any beer.
He was taken into custody and his car was towed. At the police station, he requested a lawyer. Jameleddin, a 24 year old Hispanic Male, with an Evergreen Park address, was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, improper lane usage, not having a driver’s license with him, and reckless driving.
