Westport Driver Became Unruly, Weston Police Say

WESTON, Conn. - A Westport man became unruly at Weston police headquarters on Oct. 21 after he was charged with driving under the influence, police reported.

At about 1 p.m., police said, they received a call about a car driving erratically on Weston Road. Officers located the 2004 Volkswagen Passat on Newtown Turnpike and said it was “straddling the double yellow lines,” according to police reports.

When police tried to stop the car at the intersection of Newtown Turnpike and Valley Forge Road, officers said it “drove up on the curb and then came to an abrupt stop.” The responding police officer said he noticed a strong smell of alcohol coming from the car, driven by Brandon Dempsky, 39.

Dempsky gave the police his credit card when asked for his driver’s license and registration, police said. When the officer asked Dempsky why he was being pulled over, he responded that he was “using his mobile phone to text his father,” police said. Dempsky submitted to a field sobriety test, which he failed, and was placed under arrest, police said.

At police headquarters, Dempsky became very uncooperative during processing, according to police, and when he was asked to submit to a Breathalyzer test, Dempsky told officers, “Come and make me.” He also stated several times during booking that “someone was going to get punched before this was all over,” police said.

Dempsky was charged with driving under the influence, failure to drive in a proper lane and operating a motor vehicle while using a handheld mobile phone to send text messages. He was released on a $500 bond and is scheduled to appear in court  Oct. 28.

Also from the blotter:

Gregory Polizos, 28, of Norwalk, was arrested and charged with unlawful restraint in the third-degree, threatening in the second-degree and disorderly contact after he  threatened to kill his girlfriend, police said.

Police said that on Monday they received a call from Polizos's 27-year-old girlfriend stating that he had just threatened her at her Newtown Turnpike home. The women said Polizos assaulted her, then fled when she told him she was going to call the police, officers said.

The woman told police that she had gotten into an argument with Polizos about another man, police said. That argument escalated when Polizos backed the woman into a corner “so she couldn’t get away from him and threatened to kill her,” police said.

Polizos then pushed the woman in the face and threw her down on the bed several times, again stating that he was going to kill her, police said. Polizos left the scene, telling the woman he was going to “pick up food” and come back.

Weston police asked neighboring departments to be on the lookout for Polizos' silver Nissan Altima, which Wilton officers spotted heading back into Weston on Cannon Road. Wilton police pulled Polizos over near Wampum Hill Road and took him into custody. He was later transferred to Weston headquarters and placed under arrest.

Polizos was released on a $5,000 bond and is expected to appear in court sometime this week.
