A Plano woman is facing multiple charges after Plano police say she had a passenger in her car blow into her breath alcohol ignition interlock device and was driving drunk with children in the vehicle.

Plano police arrested Joyce M. Rance, 60, of the 200 block of West John Street, Plano, on Saturday, April 14, on charges of driving under the influence of alcohol, felony aggravated DUI for committing a second DUI while transporting children, endangering the life or health of a child, and driving with a suspended license.

She was also cited for improper lane usage, police said.

Police say officers responded to a restaurant in the 12000 block of Route 34 at 8:24 p.m. for an intoxicated woman in the drive-thru.

Police said officers learned that a passenger in Royce’s car was blowing into a breath alcohol ignition interlock device for Royce. Police said Royce left the restaurant and was then pulled over near Route 34 and Needham Road.

Royce was taken to the Kendall County jail in Yorkville where police said she blew a 0.229 blood-alcohol content on a breathalyzer test, over the 0.08 limit.

The 18-year-old passenger is not being charged “at this time” for blowing into the BAID system, according to Lt. Norm Allison of the Plano Police Department.

Allison said the officer on scene was told that Rance is the guardian of the 18-year-old passenger and a 3-year-old passenger.

Police said the children were released to an adult family member.
