A 50-year-old man with a history of driving under the influence was charged with drunken driving after getting his car stuck in the snow, according to a Kane County sheriff report.

Police were called to North Mill Creek Boulevard near Geneva about 1 a.m. Feb. 7 and found Mark L. Trainer trying to dig his vehicle out of the snow with a window scraper, police reported.

Trainer, of the 0N400 block of Dooley Drive near Geneva, reportedly smelled of alcohol and lost his balance during field sobriety tests. After arresting Trainer, police learned it was his third DUI, and his driver’s license was revoked for DUI-related charges, according to the report.

An assistant state’s attorney reportedly authorized felony DUI charges against Trainer.

Kane County court records show he was charged with aggravated DUI for driving with a revoked license and aggravated DUI because it was his third violation.

Court records indicate Trainer pleaded guilty May 2013 to a 2012 DUI charge out of St. Charles and was sentenced to a year of supervision.

He is expected in court Thursday for a status hearing.
