New Canaan Man Charged with Drunk Driving Tests at More Than Three Times Legal Limit

Police late Sunday afternoon arrested a 52-year-old New Canaan man and charged him with driving under the influence.

At about 4:24 p.m. on April 16, officers were dispatched to the area of South Avenue and Cherry Street on a report of a motorist in a gray Jeep driving erratically, police said.

They stopped the car on Elm Street, according to a police report.

The motorist, a Logan Road resident, showed signs of intoxication during the stop, the report said.

He failed field sobriety tests and later tested for a blood-alcohol level of .27, it said—more than three times the legal limit.

Police additionally charged him with operating without a license.

He was released on $250 bond and scheduled to appear April 28 in state Superior Court in Norwalk.
