An Illinois State Police trooper found himself on the other side of the law after he was sentenced to a year of court supervision for driving under the influence while on duty.
Trooper Paul A. Zurn, 34, pleaded guilty April 11 to the Aug. 22, 2015 incident. Prosecutors say Zurn responded to a call of a minor traffic crash on westbound I-88 near Farnsworth Avenue. Zurn was observed by other troopers to be “unsteady on his feet,” according to the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office. A bottle containing liquor was also found in his squad car.
Zurn refused to submit to multiple sobriety tests and his driver’s license was suspended for one year by the Illinois Secretary of State as a result.
