Chandler Clarke, 26, of Lloyd Neck, N.Y., was charged around 12:35 a.m. Saturday with driving under the influence after Fairfield University security officers called Fairfield police about a driver they believed might be intoxicated at a campus checkpoint.
Clarke was visiting campus to pick up a friend, police said, and had slurred speech and an odor of alcohol on his breath. He claimed he had only consumed one or two beers, police said. He was placed under arrest and transported to police headquarters after failing his field sobriety testing. Released on $100 bond, he is scheduled to appear Nov. 28 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
A 20-year-old Fairfield University student and fellow Long Islander, Chloe Mangan -- a passenger in the vehicle -- was charged with disorderly conduct for yelling and cursing at Fairfield U. and town officers, police said. She also refused to comply with orders to get out of the vehicle.
When Mangan was later placed in a patrol car she continued to make a scene, according to police. "I'm from Long Island. I don't listen to anyone, not the police or anyone. I do what I want to do," she told police, according to the report.
She was released on a promise to appear Nov. 28 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
