After Tailing Cop, Woman Charged With DUI

She was following at an unsafe distance, then weaved across the line into an oncoming traffic line. An arrest is merely an accusation, not evidence of a conviction.


Tori Salter, 21, of Chicago was charged with DUI on Sept. 12 just before 2:20 a.m. after a police officer observed a car without headights on driving on Milwaukee Avenue. The driver then turned the headlights on and followed the squad car at an unsafe distance, police said, as the officer turned left onto Touhy Avenue and right onto Harlem Avenue. On Harlem, the driver passed the police car while breaking the lane lines into opposing traffic, according to the report. Police said Salter showed impairment on field sobriety tests and had an odor of alcohol on her breath. Her court date is Oct. 3 in the Skokie branch of the Cook County courts.

Bakery carts worth $3,200 stolen

An employee of a restaurant in the 8500 block of Dempster reported on Sept. 11 at about 11:30 a.m. that at the end of the previous day, three pie transport carts had been placed in a fenced-in enclosure behind the building, and a fourth was added in the evening. The carts are used to transport pies from a bakery in Oak Forest. On the morning of Sept. 11, the victim noticed the carts were missing, and had not been taken by the victim (the bakery in Oak Forest). The value of the carts is $3,200.

Who knows? Maybe they're polish. They're white, drunk, and come from playbook bar, which is around the corner from my house. They vomit, urinate on the houses in my neighborhood, bounce their cars off parked cars in the street, there are open sexual assaults in front of our homes, screaming fights at three am, you name it we have it now that playbook bar is open. Shame on me? I'm sure it's not your mom that's doing it. Or maybe it is. I don't care. We need more police thanks to that bar.

By all means, Harry, call the cops. If all these things are happening in your neighborhood, they're crimes that should be reported. I'm not familiar w/ this Playbook Bar you speak of but if some of their cliental are vomiting, peeing, bouncing their cars off of yours, screaming and sexually assaulting and fighting at 3AM, it SHOULD be reported. If the cops do nothing, keep calling them til they do something.

Actually she blamed the strip club she just got a job at for getting her drunk and kicking her out. She also stole a GPA from the cab driver and the cops were called a second time on her. I work at the bar a crossed the street from where this took place and she told us all about it.

She actually wasn't at a bar but at her new job as a stripper. She got completely wasted while under the age there. She was far worse then what this artical states. She was kicking the window of the police car and stealing stuff. Could of been much easier. I could hear here yelling things to the poor niles police from her place acrossed the street when she got home, or what i am assuming is her home. She was indecent any way she flashed her chest inside the bar more than once.

She's actually black and white I believe. She wasn't at a bar, but at a strip club where she worked. We know she worked there because she was giving us her business cards.
