Police make four DUI arrests

Police arrested four people over four days for driving under the influence, including drivers from Wilton, Norwalk and White Plains, N.Y.

The first arrest was made on Friday, Oct. 24, around 2:30 a.m., when police spotted Matthew J. Thelen, 35, of White Plains “straddling the double yellow line and traveling at a slow rate of speed northbound on Route 7,” police said.

After he was pulled over, Mr. Thelen failed field sobriety tests and was placed under arrest.

He eventually blew a 0.24 blood alcohol content before being released on a written promise to appear for a court date on Thursday, Nov. 6.

The next day, Oct. 25, police arrested Kyriakos Tsiropoulos, 44, of Norwalk for driving under the influence after “a passing motorist brought [Mr. Tsiropoulos’s] vehicle to an officer’s attention.”

Police caught up with Mr. Tsiropoulos near the intersection of routes 7 and 107, where they recorded “erratic operation” on their cruiser’s dash camera.

When he was pulled over, the driver failed field sobriety tests and was placed under arrest. He refused to submit to a Breathalyzer test.

He was released on a promise to appear and is due in court Thursday, Nov. 6.

On Monday, Oct. 27, police arrested two Wilton residents for driving under the influence: James Denneen, 42, of Clover Drive, and Tara Ermark, 43, of Liberty Street.

Police arrested Mr. Denneen around 11:30 that night after a driver called to complain that a vehicle on Route 7 was “weaving all over the road.”

The vehicle, driven by Mr. Denneen, was on Westport Road, and a traffic stop was conducted. He failed field sobriety tests, and later refused to submit to a Breathalyzer test.

He was released on a promise to appear and is due in court Friday, Nov. 7.

Around 1:15 a.m. on Monday, police noticed a car driven by Ms. Ermark on Route 7 being followed by a large group of cars that appeared unwilling to pass the slow-moving vehicle.

When an officer caught up to the first slow-moving vehicle near Grumman Hill Road, he noticed her car was weaving and drifting into the left lane. He activated his lights and sirens, but Ms. Ermark did not pull over.

Instead, she continued down Route 7 to the intersection with Sharp Hill Road, where she turned right. The police officer continued to follow her up Sharp Hill Road, when she finally stopped around the driveway of house 25.

Ms. Ermark failed field sobriety tests and later refused to submit to a Breathalyzer test. She was released on a promise to appear and is due in court on Thursday, Nov. 7.
