A man who drove into a utility pole in Greenwich was reportedly driving under the influence of alcohol, police said.

Officers from the Greenwich Police Department were dispatched to Weaver Street shortly before 1 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 8, where there was a report of a driver who had struck a utility pole in the area.

According to police, upon arrival, the vehicle was unoccupied, and they found the driver, Greenwich resident Mariusz Mosiej, 38, walking alone West Putnam Avenue. After being approached, Mosiej admitted to being involved in the one-car crash.

Police said that Mosiej displayed signs of alcohol impairment, and he later failed standardized field sobriety tests, which he was unable to perform to standards.

Mosiej was arrested and charged with failure to drive in the proper lane, illegal operation of a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol and evading responsibility in a crash involving property damage.

Following his processing, Mosiej was released on $250 cash bond and scheduled to return to Stamford Superior Court on Monday, Dec. 23 to respond to the charges.
