On Saturday April 29, around 7:00pm, Greenwich police stopped a 1972 Pontiac LeMans after it veered off the road and into the front yard of 91 Laddins Rock Road.
Police observed the driver, Howard Brodsky, 51, of 9 Great Hill Farms in Bedford, NY, looking down at a cell phone he was holding.
Mr. Brodsky had the odor of alcohol and had glassy, blood shot eyes. During initial questioning, he admitted to having looked down at his phone while driving.
During their investigation, police learned that a grey convertible with the same New York license plate had been involved in a hit-and-run accident in Binney Park.
Officers observed new damage on Mr. Brodsky’s fender, with traces of green paint that matched the vehicle that had been struck.
When asked, Mr. Brodsky stated that he had struck something, but could not recall what it was.
Brodsky was unable to perform field sobriety tests to standard.
He was charged with Evading Responsibility, DUI, Failure to Maintain Lane, and Distracted Driving.
His bond was set at $1,000 and he was assigned a date in Stamford Superior Court on May 8, 2017.
