The son of legendary Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka was arrested recently for driving under the influence outside his apartment complex in suburban Deerfield, Illinois.
But Michael P. Ditka protested the DUI charge, arguing that he was targeted by the police for his famous moniker.
“If my name was Joe Smith, this would not have happened,” Ditka told TribLocal. “I was not driving a car. I was parked. The keys weren’t even in the ignition.”
