Handicap access ramps are not intended for cars, as Westport resident Bradford Biggers recently learned. Biggers, 53, was arrested on March 22 after police were called to the Westport Woman's Club on the report that someone was trying to drive their car up the handicap access ramp outside the clubhouse.
When police arrived, they found Biggers, of 39 Imperial Ave., driving around the parking lot. Police reportedly found damage to the handicap ramp and, in speaking with Biggers, smelled alcohol on his breath.
Biggers failed field sobriety tests and was charged with operating under the influence, third-degree criminal mischief and simple trespass, police say. He is scheduled to appear in court on March 31. The Woman's Club was closed at the time of the incident.
Also from the police blotter :
? Fairfield resident Zachary Schultz, 23, turned himself in to Westport police on Wednesday after learning there was a warrant out for his arrest. Police say the warrant stems from a 2008 traffic stop where Schultz was charged with numerous traffic violations and failed to appear in court. He is scheduled to appear in court on April 1.
? Westport police arrested Stamford resident Teresa D'Alessio Wednesday on a warrant while she was appearing at Norwalk Superior Court on other charges. The warrant reportedly stems from a January shoplifting incident at CVS on Post Road East. D'Alessio, 21, was charged with sixth-degree larceny and is due in court on April 1.
