FAIRFIELD, Conn. – An Easton man has been charged with driving while intoxicated after he was accused of colliding with a Fairfield house in November, police say.

The residents of a Mill Plain Road house reported hearing the crash just after midnight on Nov. 3, according to the police report.

Accident investigators found that a car traveling on the street hit a curb at Dudley Drive, causing it to go up on the grass. The car drove through a street sign and shrubs before hitting two cars parked in a nearby driveway, pushing the cars into their owners’ home, police say.

Jared Dworkin, 23, of Tuckahoe Road in Easton was found at the scene, and told police he had come from a Fairfield restaurant, where he “believed he was given bad pizza,” according to the police report.

He was then taken to a local hospital for treatment. Dworkin’s medical records found that his blood alcohol content was .285, more than three times the legal limit, police say.

Dworkin was arrested Wednesday and charged with driving while intoxicated, a misdemeanor, and issued an infraction for failure to drive on the right. He was released after posting a $100 bond.

Only people who have never driven over the limit should pontificate on this story.

Nice work, Jared! Didn't Yale teach you that a blood alcohol reading of .285 can be reached by the equivalent of consuming a PINT of 80 proof alcohol over just one hour? And that particular BA level is enough to KILL certain individuals? And I'm not talking about killing OTHER innocent follks with your vehicle. You're lucky you only damaged property...
