FAIRFIELD — A 56-year-old man was charged with driving under the influence after a witness told police he was driving erratically on Fairfield Woods Road last Friday.

Peter Tagliaferi, of Oak Road in Trumbull, was charged after he was seen swerving on Fairfield Woods Road, Burroughs Road and Tunxis Hill Cut-off before turning into the Tunxis Hill Shopping and officers found him as he parked in front of a liquor store, according to the report.

Police said there were several empty beer cans in Tagliaferi’s vehicle, and he failed field sobriety tests.

He was released on a $100 bond and is scheduled to appear April 19 at state Superior Court in Bridgeport.
