Camp Avenue woman charged with DUI
A Camp Avenue woman faces a driving under the influence charge after being stopped by police at the intersection of Hoyt Street and Camp Avenue in the early morning hours of Oct. 15.
Lagene L. Loney, 28, was charged with driving under the influence, failure to drive on the right side of the road, and failure to obey a stop sign.
Police said an officer observed the driver of a gray 2010 Toyota Rav4 failing to stop for a stop sign at the intersection of Hoyt Street and Middlesex Road. The vehicle was then observed traveling northbound on Hoyt Street, said police, where it twice crossed the center line and was observed swerving in the roadway. Police said the vehicle was stopped near Camp Avenue.
The officer detected the odor of alcohol and observed that the operator’s eyes were red and glassy, according to police. Police said the operator admitted consuming alcohol during the evening hours. Loney submitted to standardized field sobriety testing, which, police said, she failed, at which point she was arrested. Police said Loney refused all in custody breath testing while at headquarters and was informed that her driver’s license was suspended for 24 hours.
Loney posted a $250 bond and is scheduled to appear in Stamford Superior Court on Oct. 25.
