How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Chicago Drunk Driver Gets Probation: FBI Agent He Hit Has Undergone 5 Surgeries

Under the category of very sad stories, a 21-year-old Chicago man was sentenced Tuesday to 24 months of probation after pleading guilty to being under the influence of alcohol when he hit an off-duty FBI agent’s car  head-on last last September in the Chicago suburb of River Grove, the Chicago Tribune reported.

The paper reported that FBI agent Elizabeth Petruc was driving to run in a Labor Day marathon.

She told the judge during an impact statement that she has had five surgeries and she probably won’t be able to return to work for at least a year, the Tribune reported.

“I’ve sacrificed a great deal to become an FBI agent and I love my job,” Petruc said, according to the Chicago Tribune. “I’m just a shadow of myself physically and mentally.”

The paper reported that the drunk driver, Jose Rodriguez, who was not of age to drink at the time, apologized. His alcohol blood level was triple the legal limit.

“He realizes his apology is of little use to the victim. But he is truly sorry and the matter haunts him,” said defense attorney Roy Amatore, according to the Tribune.
