Tuesday, the Illinois Department of Financial Regulation allowed State Representative Ron Stephens to keep his pharmacy license after his driving under the influence arrest in March.  However, Stephens’ pharmacy license will be on probation for one year.  This is the second time Stephens’ pharmacy license will be on probation, after being placed on probation in 2001 for the use of controlled substances.

Stephens was also ordered to not consume alcohol and if he does so his pharmacy license will be revoked.

Stephens was arrested by Decatur police in March after police witnessed him crossing the center line and hitting a curb on U.S. 51.  Police officials said his blood alcohol content was .101.
