GENEVA – A Sugar Grove woman who was on supervision for a previous felony aggravated drunken driving charge last year was charged again with felony DUI in Geneva, according to police reports.

Geneva police were called to the 500 block of South Randall Road at 5:15 p.m. July 14 in response to a report of a black Ford SUV traveling north from Fabyan Parkway with a female driving swerving and falling asleep at the wheel, the report stated.

The driver, later identified as Dubinski, pulled her arms away from an officer when she tried to put handcuffs on her, the report stated.

Dubinski refused to to sit in the back seat of the police car and had to be placed there by officers. When one officer was fastening the seat belt, Dubinski leaned over, called her vulgar names and spit in the officer’s face, the report stated.

The spittle landed under the officer’s right eye, the report stated.

When officers arrived with Dubinski at the police department, she refused to get out of the back seat and had to be physically removed, the report stated.
