James Rafferty, 48, of Forest Avenue, was charged on a warrant Saturday with operating under the influence, failure to drive right and evading responsibility.

The warrant arrest stems from an accident last Dec. 6 when he struck a parked car on Reef Road and, according to police, did not stop. Rafferty continued driving, first onto Veres Street and then to Longdean Road where he struck a second parked car, police said.

When officers arrived on the scene, according to the report, Rafferty had a small cut on his forehead and was dazed, with dilated pupils. He had difficulty answering questions and slurred his words, police said.

Rafferty was taken to St. Vincent's Medical Center in Bridgeport following the incident.

He was released on a $100 bond and is scheduled to appear March 10 at state Superior Court in Bridgeport.
