A 30-year-old man was asleep behind the wheel of a car stopped in the middle of the intersection of Hollow Tree Ridge Road and Allwood Road when an officer on patrol came by, police said. Darien police gave this account of what happened next (including accusations not proven in court):
The officer saw the car, a Subaru sedan, at 1:53 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 4. He approached the vehicle and could see the driver was apparently asleep. It took several attempts for officers to rouse the man.
