Madison County Assistant State's Attorney Calvin Fuller was suspended after being charged for allegations of driving under the influence and failure to remain within traffic boundaries in Edwardsville on Friday night.

The police report stated Fuller smelled strongly of alcohol, had red eyes and was unsteady on his feet. Fuller allegedly refused a field sobriety test and blood alcohol content test, leading to the suspension of his license.
