A Ridgefield man was allegedly drunk when he was stopped by New Canaan Police officers driving the wrong direction on a one-way street with no lights on, police said.
An officer on patrol shortly before midnight on Friday, Sept. 25 was alerted by pedestrians who were shouting about a vehicle that was traveling the wrong way on Elm Street with no headlights.
The officer spoke with the driver, 45-year-old Jason Geane, who showed signs of being impaired. He proceeded to fail multiple Standardized Field Sobriety Tests, was taken into custody, and refused to take a breathalyzer at police headquarters.
Geane was arrested and charged with illegal operation of a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs and cited for driving the wrong way on a one-way street.
Geane was released on $250 bond and scheduled to appear back in court in New Canaan at a later date to respond to the charge.
