Loud Crash, DUI
Police officers investigating a loud crash on Cutlers Farm Road at 3:11 a.m. Sunday found dirt and debris in the roadway and an '07 Audi A4 parked in a driveway in the 400-block of the street with damage to its entire right side, according to the report.
The operator, Andrew Nemchek, 20, of Woodcrest Road in Fairfield, told the officers he lost control of his car, police said, adding Nemchek had the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on him, bloodshot eyes and was unsteady on his feet. He admitted he had been drinking, the report said.
Field tests determined Nemchek was under the influence leading to his arrest and police said breath tests taken at headquarters showed a blood alcohol level above the legal limit.
Nemchek was charged with driving without insurance, traveling too fast for conditions and DUI. Bond was set at $500 for an April 24 court date.
A 49-year-old Hurd Avenue man told police Sunday that he had purchased a $220 Howard Miller Clock on eBay, sending the money to the seller in Hartford, Wisconsin. The check was cashed at a People's United Bank branch, but the buyer never received the clock, according to the report.
Police were able to track down the seller, contacting him on his cell phone. Police said he told them he didn't know what the Monroe man was talking about because he had already shipped the clock. He told the officer he would fax a copy of the Post Office receipt, police said.
