WESTPORT, Conn. — A former chief of the Westport Police Department arrested on drunken driving charges appeared in court this week and applied for an alcohol education program that would eventually lead to his charges being dismissed, according to Westport News.
Alfred Fiore, 61, was arrested on May 26 after police responded to a minor car accident and encountered him. According to police reports, Fiore smelled of alcohol and failed field sobriety tests, leading to his arrest on charges of driving under the influence.
Fiore was the chief of the Westport Police Department from 2004 to 2011.
The Westport News reported that during Fiore's court appearance on Monday, his lawyer submitted an application for a diversionary alcohol education program. If Fiore completes the 10 to 15 week program and does not get arrested again, his charges will be dismissed, according to Westport News.
