Andre Johnson, 35, of Milford, was arrested Friday night on an impaired-driving charge after he was stopped for driving on Post Road East without turning on his vehicle's lights, according to police.

When he was stopped, Johnson gave a name later discovered to be not his, police said. He was "also vaguely responsive and seemed as if he was impaired," according to the report. An officer could smell a "very strong odor of alcohol" on Johnson's breath, police said. Johnson also failed field sobriety tests, according to police.

Johnson was charged with operating under the influence of drugs or alcohol, criminal impersonation and several motor-vehicle charges. He was released on $5,000 bond for the motor vehicle and criminal arrest. He is scheduled to appear April 8 in Norwalk Superior Court.
