A 25-year-old woman, barefoot, emerged from the woods at the north end of town at about 1:40 a.m., Thursday by police who had been given a report of an apparently intoxicated woman running on the side of the road, Darien police said.
Police described what happened with this account, including accusations not proven in court:
The woman, a Norwalk resident, had been with friends at a restaurant (police neither named it nor indicated whether it was in Darien). When the group was leaving, the woman refused to go with them, but they were concerned about how intoxicated she was, so they physically escorted her outside.
While she was being driven in Darien, the woman punched and scratched someone else in the vehicle. She tried to get out of the vehicle several times while it was moving and had to be restrained by others each time.
When the vehicle arrived in the area of Allwood Road and Inwood Road, she got out and began walking.
Darien police were dispatched on the report of a possibly intoxicated female running on the roadway. Police couldn’t find her at first, until she emerged from a wooded area near the intersection.
She seemed to be intoxicated, and she became agitated by the presence of police.
Police issued her a misdemeanor summons for disorderly conduct. Due to her condition, she was transported to a hospital for medical evaluation by Darien EMS-Post 53.
She was scheduled to be in state Superior Court in Stamford later that same day. According to the Connnecticut Judicial Branch website, she appeared in court twice as of late Friday, and her next court date is scheduled for June 20. The website lists no other charges or convictions for her.
