Stamford man arrested for DUI after being found unresponsive
Officers arrested Randolfo Ruiz-Lopez, 38, of Stamford for driving while under the influence and driving with a suspended license on June 10. Police received reports on a vehicle with an unresponsive driver in the area of Woodway Road at about 8:45 a.m.
Two witnesses at the scene told police they had been able to wake the driver, Ruiz-Lopez, after finding the car still running and in drive. The car had been parked and disabled before officers arrived. Ruiz-Lopez allegedly denied being asleep and said the car had just stopped.
He allegedly displayed signs of intoxication, and was unable to perform field sobriety tests to standard. He was subsequently arrested for DUI. While processing Ruiz-Lopez officers also determined that his license had been suspended in connection with a previous DWI arrest in 2010.
At police headquarters a breathalyzer test showed a blood alcohol level of .2253 at 10:23 a.m. Ruiz-Lopez was released on $500 bond and is due in court on June 21.
