'Reckless' driving leads to DUI arrest

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

John Laux, 57, of Vineyard Lane was charged with DUI and failure to drive in the proper lane March 25.

Officers dispatched to investigate a reckless driving report located and stopped the vehicle.

Approaching the driver, identified by police as Laux, they detected a strong odor of alcohol, the report states.

Laux also 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.
