Police said Curtis E. Heard, 45, of 69 Rose Street was seen around 2:15 a.m. doing 55 mph north on Danbury Road in a posted 40-mph zone.

After pulling the 2004 BMW 330i over near Gaylord Drive South, the officer could see an open bottle of beer within Heard’s reach, police said. The officer smelled alcohol coming from the car.
