Richard Morawski, 52, of Beaconview Drive, was charged with driving under the influence Tuesday night after witnesses called police to report that he was driving on a wheel rim after having a flat tire on Knapps Highway.

Police located Morawski in the driveway of the house next door to his, where he apparently hit an air-conditioning unit on the side of the house. He had slurred speech and there was a strong odor of alcohol, police said. He also failed field sobriety tests, police said.

Morawski was held on a $200 bond and was scheduled to have appeared in Bridgeport Superior Court the next day.
