WESTPORT, Conn. -- A Stratford man has been arrested by Westport Police after slamming his car into a stone wall on Bridge Street around midnight on Monday, May 16, while driving under the influence.
According to police, Kimberly Finney, 41, crashed his car into a stone wall, then left the scene on foot. Officers located him on Imperial Avenue, where he refused to cooperate. Finney continued to walk away from officers as they ordered him to stop.
Officers finally grabbed Finney, who then began to struggle and pull away. Finney was taken to the ground and handcuffed, police said.
Once under control, police said Finney had an odor of an alcohol on his breath, and his speech was slurred. Due to his agitated state, officers could not perform the standard field sobriety tests.
He was charged with interfering with an officer, operating under the influence of drugs/alcohol, evading responsibility and operating a motor vehicle under suspension, following the accident, police said.
Finney was taken into custody and brought to headquarters for processing. Police said Finney continued to insult officers, and yell at them during processing. He also refused to submit to a breath test.
He was held on a $2,500 bond with a court date of May 25. It was later discovered that Finney also has a warrant from Milford for third-degree assault with $50,000 bond, police said.
