Police on Sunday night arrested a 35-year-old New Canaan man and charged him with driving under the influence. 

At about 7:29 p.m. on May 24, officers were dispatch to Cherry and Park Streets on a report of a single-car crash into a utility pole, according to police.

Investigating officers detected signs of impairment in the driver and administered field sobriety tests, according to a police report.

The Charles Place man underwent a test to establish his blood-alcohol level, which tested at .23, the report said—nearly three times the legal limit.

He additionally was cited under the state’s distracted driving statute, and cited for failure to drive in the proper lane.

Police released the man on $250 bond and scheduled him to appear July 20 in state Superior Court in Norwalk.
