CHICAGO (CBS) — A west suburban woman faces a drunken driving charge in which police say her blood alcohol level was more than four times the legal limit.

Barbara J. Buszydlik was driving home from her job at a Berwyn bar when a Riverside police officer noticed her speeding along Ogden Avenue early Monday morning.

The 35-year-old woman’s Volkswagen Jetta went up on the sidewalk as the officer pulled her over, according to a news release from Riverside Police.

After failing field sobriety tests, police say Buszydlik registered a .34 on a BAC test and was arrested.

Chief Thomas Weitzel said that if Buszydlik wasn’t caught she would have certainly hit another vehicle or driven off the road.
