Dennis Hackett

The Illinois Supreme Court has issued a ruling that says police can pull someoneĀ  over for a DUI stop even if the driver drifts only slightly outĀ  of his/her lane.

The case dates back to 2008, when a Will County Sheriff's deputy saw Dennis Hackett twice move his car from the left lane "slightly" into the right lane.

The deputy pulled over Hackett and arrested him on drunken driving charges.
