BOONE COUNTY (WIFR) – A newly appointed Boone County Board member is in trouble for allegedly drinking and driving.

Christopher Berner was arrested over the weekend on North State Street in Belvidere.

The officer who pulled him over says he ran a red light and seemed to have trouble staying in his own lane. Berner refused to take a breathalyzer test at the scene, so he was automatically charged with DUI.

Berner represents the third district in Boone County, which covers most of Belvidere’s west side.

We reached out to him this afternoon, but he didn’t want to talk to us without talking to his attorney first.
