WESTPORT — A 31-year-old woman was charged Monday with driving under the influence in connection with an accident last September.
Jennifer Edvardsen, of Compo Road South, was charged on a warrant with driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol and operating a motor vehicle with her license under suspension.
The arrest stems from an incident last Sept. 25 when Edvardsen collided with a parked car, police said. Subsequently, toxicology records indicated that Edvardsen was under the influence of amphetamine and benzodiazepine drugs at the time of the crash, according to the report.
Bond was set at $10,000 and she is scheduled to appear May 5 at state Superior Court in Norwalk.
