Former Blackhawk Chris Chelios Arrested on DUI

WESTMONT, Ill. — Former NHL

drunken driving and speeding in suburban Chicago.

Westmont police say the 47-year-old
Chelios, who now plays for the Chicago Wolves minor league club, was
driving alone in his pickup truck when he was pulled over shortly after
4 a.m. on Dec. 28 for speeding and improper lane usage. He was arrested
on a drunken driving charge and taken into custody.

Chelios posted bond and was released pending a Feb. 1 court appearance.

The Wolves declined to comment
Wednesday and said Chelios is with the team in Canada for a game and
can't be reached for comment. Chelios was one of the NHL's top
defenseman in his 25 years in the league, including stints in Chicago
and Detroit.
