Chicago Reporter Arrested on Multiple Charges


The New Year is off to a very bad start for one Chicago Reporter.

Police arrested WBBM investigative reporter Dave Savini.  

Savini is facing charges of hit-and-run, driving under the influence, battery and endangering the life of a child.

The Reporter was busted shortly after midnight on Saturday by police in the Chicago suburb of Naperville after he was reported to have been involved in a traffic accident in the parking lot of a Taco Bell.

The driver of the other vehicle said Savini pushed him when he took a photograph of Savini’s license plate, according to police.

The endangerment charge was filed because Savini, a Naperville resident and father of two, had two children under 18 in the car, the report said.

He was released on $3,000 bond.

WBBM has not made comment nor have they reported the arrest of their Reporter.

Savini has been at the station since 2004.

We're going to go out on a limb here and say that he won't finish 2014 at the CBS O&O.

But that's just a guess.
