Charges of aggravated vehicular assault and OVI against Will Burge in connection with a late-night wrong-way accident on I-90 last year were dropped by the Lake County Prosecutor's Office on Jan. 10. The nolle prosequi motion (basically fancy Latin for dropping charges) was entered pending further investigation.

Police and prosecutors had said Burge was intoxicated behind the wheel in June 2018 and caused the crash that sent the driver of the other car to the hospital with serious injuries.

The victim is okay, Burge said in a series of tweets yesterday, in which he also said that he wasn't the driver that night, but the passenger in the car, and that the driver later admitted that fact to law enforcement.
