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.
