Fairfielder arrested on drunken-driving warrant
Michael Kondrat, 61, of Four Seasons Road, was arrested on a warrant Wednesday, charged with drunken driving in connection with a Jan. 14 accident.
According to police, Kondrat was traveling north on Park Avenue when he attempted to make a left turn onto Jefferson Street and struck a car traveling south on Park Avenue. After the collision he then hit a third car and tried to flee the scene. He crashed into a snowbank about a quarter mile from the scene.
He had a large cut on his forehead and was taken to St. Vincent's Medical Center, Bridgeport. Police executed a search warrant to get Kondrat's blood alcohol level, which was used to apply for the arrest warrant.
Kondrat was charged with driving under the influence, evading responsibility, operating an unregistered motor vehicle, failure to yield while making a left turn and no insurance. He was released on a $1,000 bond and is scheduled to appear Feb. 25 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
