A man who police said failed to stop at a red traffic light early last Saturday at the intersection of Post Road East and the Sherwood Island Connector was charged with driving under the influence.

Bryant Infantas, 41, of Shelley Road in Bethel, was charged after an officer on patrol saw his car drive through the red light and onto a grassy median, police said. After Infantas’ car was stopped, the officer said his speech was slurred, his eyes were red and there was an odor of alcohol in the vehicle, according to the report. He failed a field sobriety test, police said.

In addition to being charged with driving under the influence, he was charged with failure to drive right.

Bond was set at $500, Infantas is scheduled to appear Dec. 15 at state Superior Court in Norwalk.
