Darien police charged six individuals with driving while intoxicated on Saturday, March 20. Three of the arrests were made during a DUI checkpoint the department hosted in conjunction with Stamford Police from 11 p.m. Friday until 2 a.m. Saturday; the other three were unrelated, according to Capt. Fred Komm.

A Darien woman told police she observed a man slumped over the steering wheel in a 1996 Plymouth Voyager, which was stopped at a traffic signal at the intersection of Heights Road and Noroton Avenue at 11:30 a.m. Saturday. According to police, the woman said the man, Michael Adamico, 56, of Stamford, appeared to be asleep and had a lit cigarette in his left hand.

The woman, who was walking westbound on Heights Road, approached the van to wake up Adamico, and smelled the odor of alcohol on his breath, police said. When Adamico awoke, he began moving the van forward, according to police.

The woman told him, "You need to park this car," to which Adamico responded, "Could you park it for me?" Capt. Komm said.

The woman then parked the car at 40 Heights Road, at which point Adamico "staggered" toward the vehicle and climbed back inside to continue sleeping, while still holding the cigarette, police said.

An officer arrived shortly after and asked Adamico whether he had been drinking.

"More than a little," Adamico responded, according to the report.

He failed his field sobriety test, posted a $250 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday, March 30.

Delbianco's eyes were glassy and bloodshot, and there was an odor of alcohol within the vehicle, according to police. He failed his field sobriety test, posted a $250 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday, March 30.
