DUI Charge for New Canaan Woman, 62


Police on Friday night arrested a 62-year-old Cheese Spring Road woman and charged her with driving under the influence.

At about 9:41 p.m. on Nov. 26, an officer on patrol saw a vehicle traveling northbound on Smith Ridge Road that was speeding and falling to stay in the proper lane, according to a police report.

During a subsequent stop, the officer noticed signs of impairment in the driver, the report said.

The officer then took the driver into custody on the misdemeanor charge. It wasn’t clear whether the woman provided a sample to establish her blood-alcohol level or what that level was, or whether she refused to submit to such a test. 

Police additionally cited the woman for failure to drive right.

She was released on $250 bond and scheduled to appear Jan. 5 in state Superior Court.
