CHICAGO — Illinois State Police said Tuesday they arrested a Calumet City man on DUI, reckless driving and gun charges after pulling him over on the Dan Ryan Expressway on suspicion of various driving offenses.

Tarelle E. Williams, 28, is facing charges of driving under the influence, reckless driving, armed habitual criminal and two counts of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon.

Williams also was cited for transportation of open alcohol, unlawful possession of cannabis, operating an uninsured vehicle, speeding, improper lane use, improper passing on a shoulder, following too closely, failure to signal and failure to wear a seat belt, police said.

Troopers working a special detail stopped Williams on northbound Interstate 94 at 59th Street about 10:40 p.m. Saturday, police said.
