Police officers responding to a report of an erratic driver said they found the man apparently asleep, behind the wheel of a car resting partly on a lawn, with the gear shift still set in “Drive.” The officers said they also found some heroin in one of his pockets. Darien police gave this additional account of what happened, including accusations not proven in court:
Police were called at 9:13 p.m. on Tuesday, July 12. They found the car and its driver near the intersection of Glenvale Road and Christie Hill Road. An officer reached in the vehicle and set the gear shift to park and woke up the man — David Sabrowski, 61, of Allen O’Neill Drive.
