Car Parked on Westport Road Leads to DUI Arrest

WESTPORT, Conn. – Norwalk resident Frederick Macarthur was charged with DUI in Westport last Saturday morning after his car was spotted parked in the middle of the road, police said.

Officers were called to Post Road West at Sylvan Road North around 3:20 a.m. on a report of a car stopped in the middle of the road. When officers arrived, they found Macarthur inside the car, which was stopped in the right eastbound lane. The car was running, but in park, with its lights off, police said.

When Macarthur, 69, came out of the car, officers smelled alcohol on his breath, police said. He failed field sobriety tests and agreed to urine test, police said.

He was charged with operating under the influence and released after posting a $500 bond. He is due in court on Monday.
