A DUI on Main

A Meriden woman was arrested or DUI after an officer stopped her 2006 Mazda 3 on Main Street, near the Trumbull town line, at around 12:36 a.m. on Jan. 20.

Police said officers on patrol followed the Mazda after seeing it tailgate the vehicle in front of it. Then the driver allegedly swerved across the center line before going back over the fog line.

After stopping the Mazda, police said officers noticed that the driver, Lauren Davis, 29, of  Cartpath Drive, had the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on her, had bloodshot glassy eyes and appeared to be confused. Davis said she had three glasses of wine, according to police.

Field tests at the scene showed Davis had been driving under the influence and breath tests at headquarters showed her blood alcohol level was over the legal limit, police said.

Davis was charged with DUI, failure to drive in the proper lane and driving too close. She was released on $500 bond for a Jan. 29 court date.
