Supervision for golf cart DUI
WOODSTOCK – A Wonder Lake man was sentenced to a year and a half of supervision for driving a golf cart while drunk, which police said led to his friend being airlifted to the hospital.
Bradlee McDow, 27, previously pleaded guilty to driving under the influence. On Thursday, his attorney and prosecutors agreed to the supervision sentence, as well as 100 hours of public service and DUI treatment. He also must attend a victim impact panel.
On Oct. 2, McDow was driving the golf cart headed east on Evergreen Drive and turned onto northbound Pleasure Avenue, according to McHenry County Sheriff's police.
When he turned, James Clem fell off the side and hit his head on the pavement. Clem was initially listed in critical condition, but has since made a full recovery, defense attorney Mark Facchini said.
Police said both men were under the influence of alcohol and that the golf cart was not legally on the roadway. It did not have seat belts or headlights.
Two other passengers were not injured.
