Fairfield driver charged on DUI warrant
Patrick Walsh, 23, of Mill Hill Terrace, turned himself in at Fairfield police headquarters Thursday morning on a warrant charging him with driving under the influence.
The arrest dates back to a Dec. 10, 2011, accident when Walsh drove off the road at Mill Hill Terrace and struck a utility pole, nearly cracking it in half. At the time, he told police he had been driving too fast. After the accident, he was taken to St. Vincent's Medical Center in Bridgeport for treatment of injuries.
Walsh was held on a $25,000 court-set bond and is scheduled to appear March 15 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
