An intoxicated driver traveling west on the Post Road swerved into the eastbound traffic lane a little after 8:42 p.m., Friday, according to Darien police who were following him. Police gave this further account of the matter, including accusations not proven in court:
At 8:42, police were called and told a silver BMW was swerving toward oncoming traffic on Hecker Avenue and had also almost hit a guardrail. After briefly following the car on the Post Road, police also saw it swerving into the oncoming traffic lane and stopped it. The driver, Miguel Lopez, 34, of Stamford, told police he was drinking earlier. An officer noticed that Lopez seemed confused when asked simple questions about the vehicle’s documents.
