Woman Charged With DUI In Westport

WESTPORT, Conn. – A Massachusetts woman was charged with drunken driving Saturday morning in Westport after she was spotted driving on two of the car’s steel rims, police said.

Officers were called to the area of Wilton Road and Sunny Lane on a report that a car was driving erratically due to a flat tire. There, officers spotted the car traveling southbound on Wilton Road. The right front tire was completely off and the right rear tire was shredded, the police report states.

When the car was stopped, the officer smelled alcohol coming from inside, police said. The driver, 22-year-old Dana Gillespie, said she was unaware that she was driving on rims. According to the police report, her eyes were glassy and her speech was slurred.

Gillespie failed field sobriety tests and refused a breath test, police said. She was released after posting a $1,000 bond and is due in court July 26.
