A 23-year-old man was woken up by police and charged with aggravated driving under the influence Tuesday in north suburban Lincolnshire, authorities said.

At 10:28 p.m., officers responded to a call of a possible intoxicated driver and suspicious car in the 400 block of Milwaukee Avenue, according to a statement from Lincolnshire police.

Officers found the dark-colored car running in a parking lot with two people passed out in the driver and front passenger seats, police said. After knocking loudly several times, an officer opened the unlocked door and was able to finally wake the two people.

An officer saw drug paraphernalia inside the car and arrested the driver, Kyle D. Buchschacher, police said. He was charged with 2 felony counts of aggravated DUI, a misdemeanor charge of possessing a narcotic instrument, and a misdemeanor charge of driving with a revoked license.

Buchschacher, of Lake Zurich, was taken to Lake County jail where he is being held on a $25,000 bond, police said. He is scheduled to appear at the Waukegan Courthouse 9 a.m. on Nov. 14.
