My kind of guy...

I love the last two sentences, like they have to go back a half decade to show how much of a bad seed this guy is.


CAMPTON HILLS – A middle school principal in Geneva was ticketed for driving his 2001 Porsche 103 mph in a 45-mph zone, according to police records.

Lawrence Bidlack, principal of Geneva Middle School North, was caught on radar at 3:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 16, traveling south on Corron Road, north of Cyldesdale Court, according to the ticket.

Bidlack, 46, of the 40W200 block of Carl Sandburg Road, Campton Hills, is to appear in court Dec. 7. The charge of speeding more than 40 miles an hour over the limit is a Class A misdemeanor and can result in a fine of $2,500 or up to a year in jail, according to the Illinois Vehicle Code.

Campton Hills Police Chief Daniel Hoffman said it was the fastest of any speeding ticket given in the year he has been the village’s chief.

“Speed limits are posted for a reason,” Hoffman said. “Any time you excessively speed, you are putting yourself and other motorists in danger.”

Hoffman acknowledged that the area is an open road, but he warned that the dangers of speeding are too great for drivers to take that risk.

“We have had 16 deer accidents here in the last month and a half,” Hoffman said. “If a deer runs out in front of a car going 103 miles an hour, no one survives that.”

Bidlack said driving that fast was a mistake.

“It was certainly a country road,” Bidlack said. “We all make mistakes, and I agree that is a mistake I made. As I tell kids, if you’re sitting in front of me and you made a mistake, we’re going to learn from it and move forward.”

As to his position as a school principal and a role model, Bidlack said role models are not perfect.

“As I talk with kids, adults make mistakes, too, and that is what I’m taking from this,” Bidlack said. “This is a certain experience I’ve learned from and I do not anticipate repeating.”

Geneva District 304 Superintendent Kent Mutchler said he was not aware of the speeding ticket until a reporter called. He said the traffic violation would not affect Bidlack’s contract, nor result in disciplinary action.

“Is it a district concern? I’m not going to comment on that,” Mutchler said. “Generally, we want people to obey the law. This will not affect his position as a middle school principal.”

According to Kane County court records, Bidlack also was ticketed May 17 in St. Charles for not wearing a seat belt. He pleaded guilty and paid a $55 fine. Bidlack also pleaded guilty to two other speeding violations.

According court records, Bidlack was charged with driving 74 mph in a 50-mph zone in South Elgin in 2005 for which he paid a $95 fine.

And in 2003, Elgin Police charged him with driving 78 mph in a 55-mph zone. Bidlack paid $130 fine and court costs, according to circuit clerk records.

Would have been great if he slipped and said something like "the good thing is they didn't find all that dope under the floor mats."

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."
