Police Log: DUIs, found wallet

DUI, evading responsibility

A 54-year-old Wilton man was charged with evading responsibility, operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs, failure to keep right, and operating a vehicle while distracted by a device Sept. 8 at 10:02 p.m. on Seeley Road.

Police said Robert J. Polo, of 71 Cherry Lane, was involved in a one-car accident on Seeley Road, fled on foot, and did not contact police. A passerby saw the vehicle and reported the incident.

Polo was found walking on Cannon Road toward Hurlbutt Street, and told police he left the scene because he was scared. Police reported a strong odor of alcohol on his breath and that Polo’s eyes appear glassy and bloodshot and his speech was slurred. He refused to submit to a field sobriety test and a breath test.

While investigating the accident, officers discovered his car had struck and damaged a stone wall.

He was released on $260 bond with a court date of Sept. 18.

Four times over legal limit

A 28-year-old Danbury man was charged with driving under the influence and failure to drive in the proper lane Sept. 5 at 4:39 p.m. on Danbury Road near the Norwalk line.

Police said Brandon J. Cook, of 31 Washington Avenue, Danbury, was released on $260 bond and is scheduled to appear in Norwalk Superior Court on Sept. 17.
