A 48-year-old woman faces felony charges for her fifth DUI arrest after a rollover crash in Batavia early Friday morning, according to police and court records.

Cindy A. Tesch, of the 100 block of Montana Avenue, Glendale Heights, faces charges of aggravated DUI/5th, driving while license revoked, no insurance and improper lane use after the single-vehicle crash on the 400 block of North Kirk Road.


Batavia Police Investigations Commander Eric Blowers said officers were dispatched at 12:20 a.m. Friday for a report of a 2005 Chevy Malibu that rolled over on Kirk Road.

Blowers said Tesch and her passenger, a 42-year-old female, had minor injuries and were treated and released from Northwestern Delnor Hospital in Geneva.

Blowers said Tesch refused chemical tests, and a blood-alcohol concentration was not immediately available. There was no evidence of open alcohol or contraband in the car, he said.

The crash did not result in any property being damaged other than Tesch's vehicle, he said.

"Fortunately, nobody was seriously injured," Blowers said.
