One of the biggest names in syndicated tabloid talk shows is Steve Wilkos. Before he got his own show (The Steve Wilkos Show) Steve Wilkos was the security director on The Jerry Springer Show – and even substituted as host a couple of times. Wilkos is a Chicago native and a United States Marine Corps veteran, as well as a retired member of the Chicago Police Department.

Steve Wilkos is no stranger to the dangerous situations that one might encounter as a part of the Marines or the police force. However, he has put himself in danger as well due to participating in impaired driving – a mistake that will hopefully stick with this talk show host for a long time.

A warrant was issued for his arrest following this crash, and he ended up turning himself in after learning about his wanted status.

Though Wilkos was arrested and taken to jail, he paid his $1,500 bail right away and was released in a matter of hours. The relatively low bail amount is significant – the judge may not have felt that his transgression was serious enough to warrant a higher bail. After all, though his Blood Alcohol Content level at the time of the crash was at .29%, he only ended up injuring himself after crashing the car.
