Cops say Madison was driving erratically in Glen Ellyn, Ill., when some of the Oswego East High School student passengers began calling their parents. The parents then contacted off-duty Oswego police officers working security at the prom who, in turn, called the DuPage County Sheriff’s Office, according to CBS Chicago.
