DARIEN — Police charged a 44-year-old Darien man with drunk driving after he was swerving in his Honda Accord and failed to stop at a stop sign.
On July 2 around 2:30 a.m., an officer saw Glen Thomas, of Allen O’Neill Drive, exit Interstate 95 North and drive through the stop sign at the intersection of Tokeneke Road. Thomas’ car swerved over the double-yellow line into oncoming traffic, causing the officer to stop him near Driftwood Lane.
Thomas said he was going to Norwalk from home and said he had drank a Heineken. Officers smelled alcohol on his breath as he spoke. Thomas failed a field sobriety test and was charged with driving under the influence and failure to drive right and was also issued a stop sign violation. Thomas refused a breath test and was released on a $50 cash bond. He was given a July 14 court date.
