Huntington was taken to Will County Jail and was given a $5,000 bail. State police couldn't immediately provide further details about the arrest.

According to Will County Court records, Huntington was serving 30 months probation for a previous DUI arrest. He pleaded guilty last year to aggravated DUI charges stemming from an Oct. 9, 2010, arrest.
