A 19-year-old resident of Revere Road was intoxicated when he drove a Mini Cooper onto a stone wall at the intersection of Middlesex Road and Ox Ridge Lane, then got into an altercation with bystanders, according to Darien police. Police gave this account, including accusations not proven in court:
Police, who were called to the intersection at 6:30 p.m., were also told that the driver tried to leave the scene. The driver, Jack Brown, slurred his words and couldn’t stand up without help. Police saw that the pupils of his eyes were constricted and they smelled the odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from the car. He couldn’t adequately perform field sobriety tests.
