A Moline woman is facing her third drinking-related driving offense in four years after an alleged incident on Saturday that left her charged with two counts of aggravated driving under the influence.

Dixie Lee Vanasch, 60, of 405 3rd St., of Moline, also was charged with misdemeanor counts of unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia and cannabis. She turned herself into the Rock Island County Jail on Wednesday and was released later that evening after posting ten percent of a $22,000 bond, jail officials said.

Records allege that on Saturday, Ms. Vanasch was driving a 1994 Buick Regal, intoxicated, in the 900 block of 4th Avenue in Moline after being previously convicted of two DUIs in 2010, records indicate.

She also is accused of having a pipe and less than 2.5 grams of cannabis at the time, according to records, and is due to appear in court on Dec. 3.
