Police arrested Davin D. Lenior, 30, of the 8400 block of S. Maryland Ave., Chicago, and charged him with driving under the influence of alcohol and illegal transportation of alcohol in a vehicle. He was the first of two drivers police allegedly found asleep at the wheel.

An officer was on patrol in a bar and grill area on Central Park Avenue at 1:03 AM when he found a car parked in front of a fire hydrant. The vehicle was running, and a man was sleeping in the driver’s seat, according to police. Police later identified the man as Devon D. Lenior.

First of Two Drivers Found Asleep at the Wheel

Police attempted to wake Mr. Lenior for over four minutes, according to police. According to the report, the driver would wake for a moment and then fall asleep. Officers opened the doors, turned off the vehicle, and removed the keys. Police allegedly saw open alcohol in the car and suspected cannabis on the driver’s lap.

Police asked Mr. Lenior what was going on. He allegedly said he was “drunk” and then fell back asleep, according to police. Officers eventually were able to get Mr. Lenior fully awake and noted a strong odor of alcohol coming from his breath, according to police. He also allegedly had glassy eyes, slurred speech, and slow movements, according to police.

Police: Driver Unable to Get Wallet from Pocket

Officers asked for his driver’s license, but he could not get his wallet out of his pocket to provide it, according to the report. Officers asked him to get out of the car. They noted that he had to use the door for balance to exit the vehicle, according to police. Mr. Lenior made “incoherent and inaudible responses to officers’ questions,” according to the report. He allegedly slurred his speech and had difficulty understanding what officers asked him, according to police.


One officer requested that Mr. Lenior perform Standardized Field Sobriety Tests. The officer began with a “horizontal gaze nystagmus (HGN), according to the report. Mr. Lenior was unable to follow the stimulus with his eyes, according to the report. He allegedly kept swaying and looked “absently forward, unable to focus on the stimulus,” according to police. According to officers, Mr. Lenior said, “I am not going to pass it, or I’m not doing the test.”

Police subsequently arrested him on suspicion of DUI. According to the report, Mr. Lenior refused to submit to a breathalyzer test at the Park Forest Police Department.

Municipal Ticket: Possession of Cannabis

Police issued a municipal citation charging possession of cannabis to Unymeleak Williams Jr., 23, of the 1100 block of W. Iowa St., Glenwood, on January 28.

An officer patrolling a vehicle at 10:56 PM allegedly saw a Hyundai with only one headlight. The officer curbed the vehicle at Illinois Street and Jackson Street. While speaking with the driver, Unymeleak Williams Jr., the officer saw a green leafy residue in a cup located in the center console, according to police.

The officer asked Williams for permission to search the vehicle. Mr. Williams gave consent, according to police. While searching, police found several empty plastic baggies throughout the car, according to police. In the trunk, the officer found two plastic bags containing suspected cannabis, according to the report. Mr. Williams allegedly said the plastic bags belonged to him.

This was a municipal citation or ticket, not an arrest.

Felony Aggravated DUI

Police arrested Brianna C. Cannamore, 31, of the 21000 block of Olivia Ave., Sauk Village, and charged her with one felony count of aggravated DUI (Class 4), and traffic citations charging improper parking on a roadway, illegal transportation of alcohol, and driving while license was revoked.

About Police Reports

Please note that we repeatedly say “according to police” in these reports and often use “allegedly.” We are not asserting in any way that those police arrested and charged committed any offenses. We report on what is in the reports that the police furnish to us. As those accused are innocent until proven guilty, the burden is on prosecutors and police to prove all alleged crimes.

eNews Park Forest has continuously published the addresses of those arrested and will continue to do so. 5 ILCS 140/2.15 states that the governmental body (for these reports, the Police Department), shall release information on those charged, including their name, age, and address. This information is necessary to ensure the proper identity of those arrested.

Presumption of Innocence

An arrest does not mean that a person is guilty. The law presumes all those whom police arrest are innocent until proven guilty. It is the policy of eNews Park Forest not to remove items from the public record from publication. Suppose you find your name in the police reports. Our policy is that we will only add information relevant to the final disposition of the case at hand, e.g., “Mr. Smith was subsequently acquitted,” “Mr. Smith entered a guilty plea,” or “All charges against Mr. Smith were subsequently dropped.” We will do so upon receiving and verifying proof of such disposition.

We do not strike, “unpublish,” or delete news.

Police captured all the incidents in this report on body-worn and dash-mounted cameras by officers at the respective scenes, according to police. All Park Forest police officers wear body-worn cameras. Officials typically abbreviate these devices as BWC in the reports.
