Disorderly Conduct/Public Drunkenness

Brianna M. Doyle, 21, of the 14N600 block of Timber Ridge Drive, Elgin, and Justin C. Briney, 24, of the 700 block of Carriagehill Lane, Sugar Grove, were each cited at 12:19 a.m. at Cedar and North 5th streets with disorderly conduct/public drunkenness. According to the report, Briney told the officer his attorney would have the citation dismissed. Doyle told the officer she did not believe they should be cited — that they were walking to avoid getting into trouble.

Police Blotter information is provided by the St. Charles Police Department and other local law enforcement agencies. Charges are not evidence of guilt. They are a record of police actions taken on a given day, and persons charged with a crime are presumed innocent until proven guilty in court. If you or a family member are charged or cited and the case is subsequently adjudicated, we encourage you to notify the editor. We will verify and report the outcome.

i mean does anyone notice why this article doesnt have a reason as for we were stopped in the first place? "because walking down the street peacefully" doesnt really sound very good on the officers behalf because thats exactly what were doing and in no way caused any type of scene or disturbance, everyone wants to make this big deal that we were somehow hurting the community? excuse me i live ONE block from the bar im sorry for being responsible and not DRIVING there

Hey there Justin. The article is intentionally brief as it is intended more to briefly summarize an incident that resulted in a citation over a ticketable, alcohol-related offense, which has been an ongoing, hot-button issue in St. Charles and therefore of news interest. You can request to see the police department's full report, which includes the officer's observations about why he/she stopped you in the first place.

Well, Justin, your arrogance continues-it says you were stopped for DISORDERLY conduct/drunkenness-not responsible conduct. You walked home. Goody for you. But, you must have done or said something to GET THE TICKET. It was you, according to the article, who rejoined that your attorney would have the charges dismissed, rather than accepting the ticket peacefully. And the young lady also argued. You do not challenge a police officer-you take the ticket. The young woman that I witnessed getting the ticket for open alcohol, was mouthy to the officer, telling him she was walking, why does'nt he go find a DUI...just did not know when to restrain her tongue, disrespectful. The officer told me she would not have gotten the ticket-they do make those calls, and give people the benefit of just a reproach-I saw it, all the night long. So, I think you must have done something to get their attention, and sounds like matters became worse as you both responded. Like it or not, there are community standards we uphold. Police officers deserve respect, drunk or sober. Youthful arrogance mixed with liquor-not a good combo. Like David said, bar patrons are two types-locals and out of towners. And out of towners have no stake in this town, and their behavior tends to mimic that fact. So, you say that moved here recently, not time enough to update your license? Alright, now, you live here-so act like it, and care about what you do in your town.

hmmmm i dont think that you were there so are in no position to judge what happened no i was not mouthy with anyone and no unless walking down the sidewalk is cause to be stopped then ok i guess i was guilty as charged and actually drunk and public and disorderly conduct are considered the same thing so that doesnt prove that i did anything to be stopped and i would really like someone to please explain to me how walking home is against community standards????, i think its best if you keep your mouth shut on situations that are not your business :) like i said i did nothing wrong and was hurting no one in anyway, so please dont tell me how to act you do not know me, you do not know what happened that night, and yes i have had time to update my license but honestly i have no reason to go stand in line at the dmv for an hour as all my bills are already sent to my apartment
