Man Charged With Assault at Westport Health Center

WESTPORT, Conn. – Bridgeport resident Hollis Wilson was arrested Friday morning by Westport police at St. Vincent's Hospital on a warrant charging him with assault, police said.

The warrant stems from a December 2010 incident in which Wilson, 27, allegedly assaulted a staff member at Hall-Brooke Behavioral Health Services on Long Lots Road, police said.

In addition to third-degree assault, Wilson was charged with disorderly conduct. He was unable to post a $10,000 bond and was arraigned in Norwalk Superior Court later Friday morning.

Also from the police blotter:

Westport resident Lisa Tarala, 45, was arrested early Thursday morning and charged with drunken driving and issued an infraction for possession of marijuana, police said.

Tarala, of 25 Woods Grove Road, was spotted driving northbound on Riverside Avenue at a high rate of speed, police said. She was stopped and the officer smelled alcohol on Tarala's breath, police said.

Tarala failed field sobriety tests and the results of her breath test were .134 and .118. A plastic case containing less than half an ounce of marijuana was also found in her pocket, police said.

In addition to driving under the influence and the infraction, Tarala was charged with traveling unreasonably fast. She was released after posting a $500 bond and is due in court on Jan. 23.
