Police on Friday night arrested a 43-year-old New Canaan man and charged him with driving under the influence.

At about 11:10 p.m. on Sept. 14, officers were dispatched to Thayer Pond Road and Fawn Lane on a report of two suspicious vehicles, police said.

There, authorities saw a vehicle leaving the area and stopped it, according to a police report.

On speaking with the driver, officers smelled alcohol, and he then failed field sobriety tests, the report said.

A Pheasant Drive resident, the man was released on $250 bond and scheduled to appear Sept. 25 in state Superior Court in Norwalk.
