A new police report released this week alleges the football coach of New Berlin High School was passed out in a drive-through before being arrested for drunk driving.

The State Journal-Register reports Barry Creviston was arrested on suspicion of DUI after police found him passed out in his SUV in Champaign in a drive-through at Hardee’s back in April.

According to the police report, obtained by the SJ-R in a Freedom of Information Act request, Creviston’s 2004 Cadillac Escalade was still in drive, and a police officer had to shake him to wake him up.

He reportedly failed a field sobriety test and had a blood alcohol content of 0.151, nearly twice the legal limit.

No action has been taken against Creviston, a former Routt Catholic coach, by the New Berlin school board. Many people, including former players, showed up at a recent board meeting in support of the coach

Creviston also teaches physical education and driver’s ed, according to the New Berlin website.

Creviston has pleaded not guilty to two DUI charges, and is set for a future court date of August 20th.
