Police Nail Two on DUI Charges

Westport resident Brian Turano of 103 Bradley Lane may think twice about where he parks his car in the future. At about 2:15 a.m. Saturday, police spotted Turano, 37, in his car, which was stopped in the traffic lane on Riverside Avenue at Saugatuck Avenue.

When officers drove up, it appeared that he was asleep. Upon approaching Turano's car, the officers could smell alcohol on his breath. Turano, who refused to take a breath test, failed field sobriety tests and was charged with operating under the influence and improper parking. He is due in court Sept. 13.

Also from the police blotter:

-About 20 minutes after police picked up Turano, Westport resident Jonathan Lieber of 30 Cranbury Road was spotted on Partrick Road at about 2:30 a.m. Saturday. Lieber, 37, was reportedly weaving in and out of his lane and was clocked driving 40 mph in a 25 mph zone.

When Lieber was stopped, the officer smelled alcohol on his breath. Lieber refused a breath test and failed field sobriety tests. He was charged with operating under the influence, failure to drive right and traveling unreasonably fast. He is scheduled to appear in court Sept. 13.
