FAIRFIELD, Conn. – A Trumbull woman was charged with driving under the influence after she was found asleep at the wheel of her car, which was facing in the wrong direction on a Fairfield street early Monday morning, police say.
An officer saw the car stopped on Mill Plain Road facing north in the southbound lane about 4 a.m., according to the police report. The car’s engine was running, but it was in park at the time, police say.
Pamela Jarrin-Delcegno, 26, of Trumbull was in the driver’s seat slumped over the wheel, according to the police report. After the officer tapped on the window multiple times she woke up and explained that she was trying to get home, police say. She then failed a series of field sobriety tests at the scene, according to the report.
Jarrin-Delcegno was charged with driving under the influence and released after posting a $50 bond. She is due in court on Oct. 30.
