Former Blackhawk Chris Chelios Arrested for DUI
WESTMONT, Ill. (AP)-- Former NHL defenseman Chris Chelios was arrested last month and charged with 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 February 1st 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.
