On Jan. 1 around 3 in the morning, police, responding to a civilian call, were dispatched to the intersection of Drum Hill Road and Ridgefield Road, where it was reported that a Porsche SUV had crashed into a stone wall.

Upon arrival, officers found the driver, Erich Rayment, 39, of 66 Borglum Road, on-scene with his wife, who they say was in the vehicle at the time of the accident.

The 2015 Porsche Cayenne had apparently been driven on Drum Hill Road through the intersection with Ridgefield Road, disregarding the stop sign, and straight into a stone wall across the road.

Rayment was administered a field sobriety test, which he did not perform to standard. He was subsequently arrested on the charges of DUI, failure to carry vehicle registration, failure to carry vehicle insurance, failure to drive in the proper lane, and failure to obey a stop sign.

According to police, Rayment was “uncooperative” throughout his arrest, and “gave few details about the crash.” He refused breath testing.

Rayment was released on a promise to appear at Norwalk Superior Court on Jan. 11.
