Crystal McCahill is set to be featured in Playboy magazine as Miss May 2009, but will be facing chargers for driving under the influence. McCahill is scheduled to appear before a Cook County judge next week to answer to the January 7th chargers.
According to a Chicago Police report, the 5-foot-7 brunette had a blood-alcohol level of more than twice the legal limit when she drove a 2005 Volkswagen Passat through a red light at Chicago and Wood.
McCahill, 25, who has also appeared on the E! Playboy reality show “The Girls Next Door,” told police, “I had three shots at Climax [nightclub], where I work,” according to the police report. Police said McCahill “mumbled,” had a “strong odor” of alcohol on her breath and had “red-bloodshot and glassy eyes.”
McCahill is due in court March 19 at the Daley Center. Her attorney is expected to ask a judge to restore McCahill’s driving privileges, said Assistant State’s Attorney Lawrence O’Reilly.
