A Lisle woman faces felony charges following a traffic stop in Frankfort.
Stacy K. Niemiec, 52, of the 5500 block of Essex Road in Lisle, was charged with three counts of aggravated driving under the influence and one count of possession of a controlled substance, all felonies, at 1:50 a.m. on the 20500 block of La Grange Road.
She was also cited for driving with a suspended license, driving without insurance, improper lane usage and two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence.
A Frankfort police officer was on patrol when he saw the car in front of him weaving from lane to lane.
When he stopped the car, Niemiec smelled of alcohol and couldn’t coherently answer questions about her destination, according to police reports. She was unable to provide her license and registration.
Niemiec failed a field sobriety test and was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol. A background check revealed that her license was revoked for driving while intoxicated and that she had two previous DUI convictions.
Her court date is Jan. 28.
