A Fairfield woman was arrested Tuesday at approximately 1 a.m. on a charge of drunk driving.
Jordan Rissolo, 20, was observed driving north on Riverside Avenue when she reportedly made a right turn onto Bridge Street at a red light. A right turn on a red light is prohibited at that intersection.
As she made her turn, Rissolo allegedly crossed over the road's centerline into the oncoming traffic's lane. When stopped, the officer allegedly detected an odor of alcohol on her breath, and she also failed subsequent field sobriety tests, police said.
Rissolo was charged with operating under the influence of alcohol and released on $500 bond. She is scheduled to appear Jan. 3 in Norwalk Superior Court.
