ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill. (AP) -- A suburban Chicago woman charged with DUI six times had her bail revoked this week after police say she came to court intoxicated.

Authorities say 54-year-old Sandra Uher of Elgin had been free on $100,000 when she was taken into custody.

The (Arlington Heights) Daily Herald reports she's been sent to Cermak Hospital at Cook County Jail for evaluation.

During her most recent DUI arrest in March, police say Uher failed a field sobriety test and had a preliminary blood-alcohol content of .30, nearly four times the legal limit for drivers.

She was also driving on a revoked license.

Uher has DUI convictions dating back to 1997. If convicted of the latest offense, she faces between six and 30 years in prison.
