Fairfielder charged with DUI
Steven Smyth, 35, of Taunton Road, was charged with driving under the influence and failure to drive in the proper lane after police said they saw him driving over the double-yellow traffic line on the Post Road around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Police had received a call about a possible intoxicated driver from a witness who saw the suspect drive out of the parking lot at the Grey Goose in Southport. The office spotted Smyth's car near South Pine Creek Road and, according to the report, the car was swerving. Smyth was stopped at Bungalow Avenue and failed field sobriety tests, police said.
He was released on a $100 bond and is scheduled to appear Nov. 14 in Bridgeport Superior Court
