Andy DuRoss, the superintendent for  Schaumburg Township Elementary District 54, has been charged with two counts of driving under the influence after police pulled him over near Washington and Jefferson streets in Naperville about 12:53 a.m. on Feb. 1, according to the Daily Herald. 

DuRoss, of Naperville, had been out to dinner at Sullivan's Steakhouse when police said they received a report of an intoxicated person at the restaurant and when they responded, found DuRoss arguing with "restaurant staff over a missing purse," according to the article.
