Alleged drunk driver pulls up to police to "say hello" in Riverside

RIVERSIDE, IL -- An allegedly drunk driver pulled up to a police officer to "say hello" before driving off erratically in suburban Riverside, police said.

Freddie Levison, 57, told police he was just being friendly when he drove up to the officer and rolled his window down, but the officer noticed him swerving from lane to lane and pulled him over in the 3800-block of Harlem Avenue around 2 a.m. Saturday, police said.

Levison failed a breathalyzer test, which showed him at two and a half times the legal limit, police said, and he also admitted to driving on a suspended license.

Levison faces two DUI charges as well as several other traffic violations.
