A local woman was charged last week with driving under the influence after police said she was seen driving erratically on Compo Road South.

Susan Boynton, 58, of Compo Road South, was charged about 10 p.m. Dec. 23 after police stopped her after reports that a vehicle was seen traveling erratically in the area. According to the report, Boynton smelled of alcohol and was unsteady on her feet. She failed field sobriety tests, police said, and later refused to take a breath test.

Bond was set at $1,000 and she is scheduled to appear Monday at state Superior Court in Norwalk.
