DUI for Driver Observed Drifting into Byram Fire Station Driveway

Greenwich Police cars, newOn Monday afternoon, Greenwich Police observed a white Chevrolet Trail Blazer driving east from Mill Street onto Delavan Ave and suddenly drift into the front driveway of Greenwich Fire Station 3.

Just prior to entering the driveway of the fire station, the TrailBlazer abruptly and unsafely redirected back into the lane of traffic, traveling past a marked Greenwich Police unit. As the TrailBlazer passed by, the marked police car’s license plate reader alerted to the vehicle’s registration, as having a suspended registration due to an insurance lapse.

The alert was confirmed with Dept. of Motor Vehicles records, and the Trail Blazer was stopped on the I-95 Exit 2 northbound on-ramp.

The driver, Segura-Hernandez, 30, of 135 Fourth Street in Stamford admitted he did not have a valid driver’s license. Police on scene observed he had glassy, red eyes and spoke in slurred, deliberate speech.

Police noted the odor associated with the consumption of alcoholic beverages on Segura-Hernandez’ person and breath.  He did not complete standardized field sobriety tests to standard and was placed under arrest. He was charged with Operating Under the Influence, Operating Under Suspension (Registration), Unsafe Movement, and Operating Without a License.

Segura-Hernandez was assigned a court date of April 27, 2015 at Stamford Superior Court. He was released from police custody after posting a $500 cash bond.
