Want to cause a stir? Try crashing the gates of a nuclear power plant.

Kevin Wegner of Plainfield was arrested for DUI yesterday morning after deputies say he crashed thru the main gate of the Exelon Nuclear Station in eastern La Salle County. He was also wanted on a warrant in Will County for possession of drug paraphernalia.

Wegner and his passenger Nicholas Sass of Bolingbrook were both taken to Morris Community Hospital. Wegner was eventually released and taken to the La Salle County Jail.

Exelon security personnel say they didn’t consider the crash to be a security threat.
