Norwalk resident Mihaita Anton, 42, learned first-hand how diligent Westport police officers can be. After receiving a complaint of a car driving erratically on Saturday night, officers found the suspected car in the parking lot at 20 Saugatuck Ave. In speaking with Anton, officers smelled alcohol on his breath and noticed he was slurring his words. Anton failed field sobriety tests and was charged with operating under the influence. He is scheduled to appear in court Sept. 7.
Also from the police blotter:
? Before a shouting match between Stratford resident Christopher Gendreau and Norwalker Jamaal Roland could turn physical, Westport police were called to 1655 Post Road East shortly before 2 a.m. When they arrived, police found Gendreau, 28, and Roland, 23, verbally dishing it out. For creating a public disturbance, both were served with infraction summonses.
? Westport resident Edward Grey, 43, of 6 Cross Highway, turned himself in to Westport police Aug. 25 on two warrants for his arrest. One was issued by Westport police for failure to appear on motor vehicle charges in June. The second was issued by Norwalk police after Grey allegedly failed to appear on a failure to appear charge stemming from motor vehicle violations in January. He is scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 29 for both cases.
