When police arrived, the man was unable to provide his license and didn’t have valid insurance. Police smelled alcohol on him and had him take field sobriety tests, which he couldn’t perform well enough.
Along with driving while under the influence, the Mansfield Avenue resident was charged with driving without a license, unsafe movement and driving without insurance.
He was later released on $250 bond and is scheduled to appear Jan. 13 in state Superior Court in Stamford.
