HUNTLEY – The District 158 school board Thursday suspended Huntley baseball coach Andy Jakubowski for the remainder of the season and playoffs, after he was arrested May 11 for driving under the influence.

Jakubowski had already told Huntley High School Principal Dave Johnson earlier in the week that he was suspending himself for the remainder of the regular season. The district board's suspension means Jakubowski loses his pay for the remainder of the season and will not be allowed to attend games, practices or awards night.

The No. 1 seed Huntley baseball team will be without their head coach when they travel to DeKalb next week for the regional playoffs.

Jakubowski was arrested early Saturday morning near the intersection of Randall and Miller roads. He was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and driving with a breath-alcohol content more than the legal limit of 0.08.
