Officers arrested a Westport man for driving under the influence early today after he had crashed his Mercedes into a guardrail at the intersection of Nyala Farms Road and the Sherwood Island Connector.
Officers arrested Enyinnia Ugorji-Ufomaduh, 28, of 105 Greens Farms Road, after he failed a field sobriety test.
“Ufomaduh said he fell asleep while driving and crashed into the guardrail,” Lt. David Farrell said. “Ufomaduh’s eyes were glossy and bloodshot, and he had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his breath.”
A breath test at Police Headquarters showed Ufomaduh was over the legal limit to operate a vehicle. Released on a $500 cash bond, he is scheduled to appear in Norwalk Superior Court on Wednesday, Aug. 16.
