DARIEN — A 42-year-old Norwalk man pulled over for erratic driving was charged with drunk driving.
On May 19 around 1 a.m., an officer on patrol saw a car in front of him swerving between lanes while driving on Interstate 95. The officer pulled over the car and spoke with the driver, Adam Niedzwiecki of Theodore Lane.
Niedzwiecki told the officer he was driving home to Norwalk from a soccer game in Stamford. He told the officer he’d had two beers. The 42-year-old was having a difficult time speaking and his speech was slurred. The officer also noticed Niedzwiecki’s eyes were glassy and red and the smell of alcohol was coming from the car and his breath.
Niedzwiecki was asked to exit the car and perform a field sobriety test, which he failed.
He was charged with driving under the influence. He was brought back to the Darien Police Department where he was given a breathalyzer test. His blood alcohol content at 1:38 a.m. was .181. A second test at 1:57 a.m. showed it to be .189.
Niedzwiecki posted a $250 cash bond and was released at 2:20 a.m. He was given a court date of May 31.
