Police late Thursday arrested a 48-year-old New Canaan woman and charged her with driving under the influence.
At about 11:44 p.m. on Oct. 1, officers were dispatched to Siwanoy Lane on a report of a single-car crash, according to a police report.
There, officers found a vehicle that had come to rest on its driver’s side in a ditch on the side of the road, the report said. Several mailboxes had been struck and damaged by impact with the vehicle, it said.
The woman, an Oenoke Ridge resident, was found to be the sole occupant of the vehicle she’d been driving, police said.
Officers detected signs of impairment on speaking with her, the report said. After conducting field sobriety tests, officers brought her to headquarters for processing on the DUI charge, it said. There, she refused to provide a sample to establish her blood-alcohol level, the report said.
She additionally was cited for failure to drive right.
Police reeled the woman on $250 bond and scheduled her to appear Nov. 10 in state Superior Court.
