TV sportscaster Mike Adamle of Evanston is scheduled to appear in Skokie district court Feb. 14 on charges of driving under the influence.

Adamle, 61, a former star player on the Northwestern University football team who spent seven years in the NFL, was taken into custody early Monday after reportedly failing to stop for a traffic signal at Main Street and Sheridan Road and failing a field sobriety test.

Adamle, who’s been working as a weekend sportscaster for WMAQ-TV,  has held a variety of other sports broadcasting jobs with national networks and Chicago stations.
