A DUI on Main
A Monroe man was arrested for drunken driving Sunday after police stopped his 2009 Acura on Main Street at around 1:31 in the morning.
Vladimir Petrov, 25, was charged with DUI, failure to drive in the established lane and operating under suspension. Bond was set at $250 for an Aug. 28 court date.
Officers responding to the complaint of an erratic driver observed Petrov's Acura weaving across the double yellow line in the 300-block of Main Street and slowing down and speeding up several times, according to the report.
After stopping the vehicle, an officer walking up to the car smelled the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage and Petrov had glassy, bloodshot eyes and did not make sense when answering questions, police said. For instance, Petrov said he was coming from Trumbull but gave the name of a bar that is in Milford, according to police.
Field sobriety tests determined Petrov was under the influence and breath tests at police headquarters showed a blood alcohol level above the legal limit, police said, adding officers also found that his license was under suspension.
