Two drunk driving tickets given out over the weekend

A Bridgeport man faces intoxicated driving charges after Darien Police claim they found him sleeping in his car that was parked in the middle of Raymond Street on Saturday, July 19.

Police responded just before midnight to a caller who said that car had stopped in the middle of the road. Officers arrived and found David Calderon, 31, of North Avenue, asleep at the wheel of a gray Ford Focus, police said. The engine was not running, but the keys were in the ignition and Calderon was “slumped over the wheel,” said Det. Mark Cappelli.

Officers detected alcohol on Calderon, police said, and when asked if he know where he was, he told police he was in West Haven. Calderon declined to submit to a breathalyzer, but failed his field sobriety test and was arrested, police said. He posted a $250 bond and he has court on Wednesday, July 31.

Police arrested a Norwalk man for intoxicated driving after he was pulled over for speeding on Hoyt Street on Sunday, July 21.

Joseph Lumento, 33, of Sier Hill Road, was driving a 2009 Toyota Tacoma north on Hoyt Street near Country Club Road at 1:29 a.m. when police clocked him driving 46 miles per hour in a 35 zone, police said. While speaking to Lumento, the officer detected a strong odor of cologne, which, according to police, is often used to conceal the smell of alcohol.

Lumento admitted to having drank a six pack, police said, and his eyes were “bloodshot and glassy.” He failed his field sobriety test, according to police, and was arrested. He posted a $250 bond and he has court on Wednesday, July 31.
