A man from Westchester has been charged after he was found slumped over in his vehicle on the side of Merritt Parkway, according to police.

Greenwich Police say they responded to the area of Merritt Parkway northbound near exit 29 (Lave Avenue) on a report of a driver slumped over the wheel on the side of the road on Sunday, April 7 around 11:45 p.m.

Officers say they located a silver Honda with heavy front end damage traveling south on Lake Avenue near Old Mill Road.

The driver, identified as 36-year-old Anthony Cangemi of White Plains, allegedly told officers that he had no recollection of being involved in an accident. Police say he was also speaking in a slurred and lethargic manner and was unsteady on his feet.

Cangemi was then asked to perform a series of field sobriety tests, which police say he did not pass.

Congemi was arrested and charged with operating under the influence and operating without a license.

Cangemi was released after posting $1,500 bond and is scheduled to appear in Stamford Superior Court on Monday, April 22.
