ROCKFORD (WIFR) – Police say a drunk driver is now in custody after they tell us a man crashed his SUV face down in the Rock River
We're told he used a knife to cut himself out of a seat belt before swimming to the water’s surface.
To make matters worse, investigators say 31-year-old Marcus Green didn’t even have a valid license. Officers say Green lost control and ended up sliding down a hill that went into the river near 15th Street and South Main.
Green is now out of the hospital.
