Driver charged with DUI after Lalley driveway crash
Charles Buffin, 21, of Oyster Bay, N.Y., was charged around 2:15 a.m. Saturday with driving under the influence, evading responsibility and failure to drive right after striking a car parked in a Lalley Boulevard driveway.
Police said Buffin had attempted a U-turn prior to the accident, and then fled the scene. The homeowner, however, provided a vehicle description to police. Buffin was later pulled over in the area of Beach Road and Old Post Road, and charged after police said he failed field sobriety testing.
Released on $25 bond, he is scheduled to appear Nov. 1 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
