A 17-year-old male was charged with driving under the influence and reckless driving early Saturday.

The teenager -- whose name was not released because of his age -- drove over the curb as he turned from Post Road onto South Pine Creek Road, police said, and continued at a high rate of speed. He then turned onto Northfield Road before stopping on Fairfield Place, police said.

The youth is scheduled to appear Feb. 2 in Bridgeport Juvenile Court.
