Fairfield man charged with DUI in Darien
DARIEN — A 56-year-old Fairfield man was charged with driving under the influence after he was pulled over for swerving on the Post Road, police said.
On May 26 around 9:15 p.m., an officer saw a car swerve closely to the vehicle in the lane next to it. The car then failed to turn right in a turn lane and kept switching between lanes without signaling.
The officer pulled over the car and asked the driver, Robert John Moore of Aspen Wood Lane, for license and registration. Moore fumbled around the car to find the paperwork. The officer noticed his speech was slurred and asked Moore how much he had to drink. Moore said he had nothing.
The officer asked Moore to submit to a field sobriety test and asked him again how much he had to drink. Moore said he had one drink. He then failed the test and was charged with driving under the influence and failing to drive in the proper lane.
Moore was taken to headquarters, where he refused a breathalyzer test. He was released on a $250 bond and given a June 6 court date.
