A Westport man was charged with driving under the influence after police responded to a report of a reckless driver Tuesday on North Compo Road.

John Laux, 57, of Vineyard Lane was charged with DUI and failure to drive in the proper lane.

Officers dispatched to investigate the reckless driving report located and stopped the vehicle, police said.

Upon approaching the operator, identified by police as Laux, they detected a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from him, the report states.

Laux failed roadside sobriety tests, police said.

Laux was released after posting a $1,000 bond and is scheduled to appear April 3 in Norwalk Superior Court.
