FAIRFIELD, Conn. – A New Haven man found lying on a Fairfield golf course near the scene of a car crash turned himself in Monday to answer charges of driving under the influence, according to police reports.
Golfers called police on the morning of Dec. 2 to report a man lying on the Fairchild Wheeler Golf Course. Tudormatei Boran, 20, of New Haven was found near a car that had struck several trees, police say.
He reportedly told officers he had been there since the night before and was unsure what happened because he had been “experimenting” with prescription medications. The medications were found in his backpack, according to police reports. Accident investigators believe he had been driving on Golf View Terrace when he veered off the road into a wooded area near the golf course, police say.
Boran was taken to St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport for hip and leg pain. His medical records revealed that his blood alcohol content was over the legal limit during the accident, according to police reports.
Boran was charged with driving under the influence, failure to drive right, failure to keep prescription medications in their original container and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was released after posting a $500 bond and is due in court March 7.
