Police on Tuesday afternoon arrested a 53-year-old Summer Street woman and charged her with driving under the influence. 

At about 4:27 p.m. on Aug. 20, an officer was dispatched to White Oak Shade Road near Farm Road on a report of an erratic driver who had crossed the double-yellow line, according to police.

The officer found the driver and, while following her on Lakeview Avenue, saw her traveling in the oncoming traffic lane,  according to a police report.

During a subsequent stop, the motorist failed field sobriety tests, the report said. She refused to undergo a test to establish her blood-alcohol level, it said. She was additionally cited for failure to drive right.

Police released the woman on $250 bond and scheduled her to appear Sept. 3 in state Superior Court in Norwalk.
