FAIRFIELD, Conn. — A Fairfield man faces drunken driving charges after he rolled his car down a short embankment on North Benson Road April 21, police said.
A homeowner called 911 around 10:30 p.m., when a car traveling north on North Benson failed to navigate a sharp right curve near Pheasant Lane, jumping the curb and rolling down the hill next to a home.
The car, driven by William Pickard, 56, of Black Rock Turnpike, came to rest on its roof, police said.
Pickard refused medical treatment and failed field sobriety tests at the scene, police said.
He was charged with driving under the influence, failure to drive right and traveling unreasonably fast, police said.
He was released on $100 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on May 1.
