Naked Man Found in Massage Parlor Shower: Weird Crimes

Sleepy driver found behind the wheel • Man hides steak in his pants • Thief snatches 'lung transplant fund' donation jar ... This week's roundup of the Southland's weird crime news.

Wake Up, Sleepy Head

March 2: Amy L. Zvonik, 35, of the 400 block of Chestnut Street in Hinsdale, was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, DUI with a blood-alcohol level greater than 0.08., driving below the minimum speed, driving without a valid license and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to a report. Police found Zvonik asleep behind the wheel of her white Dodge Durango at around 6 p.m. near the intersection of 156th Street and LaGrange Road.

The SUV was running and appeared to be in drive, according to the report. Zvonik reportedly did not wake immediately, despite the officer yelling and knocking loudly on the window. When she woke, she drove the SUV forward without speaking to the officer and, eventually, stopped in the Kohl’s parking lot. The officer could smell on odor of alcohol coming from her breath when she spoke. Zvonik was arrested after taking field sobriety tests. She also took a breath test. A search of the car turned up a pipe for smoking marijuana.

Zvonik is due in Bridgeview court on April 16.

Thanks Patch for sharing all the stories from here and other towns. You keep everyone up to date on what it going on and you do a great job! Keep writing and don't change a thing. If people don't like it, they can put on there grown up pants and find another paper to read. It is that simple!

If the shower was occupied, shouldn't the inspector be arrested for violating the man's privacy? He was in a shower, why would he be clothed? There has to be more to this story.

So it is now a weird crime to be naked in a shower? This inspector needs to find a hobby. What a ridiculous article. This man should be compensated for what happened to him.
