A Bridgeport man was arrested on a warrant Friday, charged in connection with a single-car accident in February.
Jimmy Sullivan, 52, of Glendale Avenue in Bridgeport, was charged with driving under the influence and failure to drive in the proper lane.
The accident took place about 8:30 p.m. Feb. 18, when police said Sullivan was traveling east on Holland Hill Road when he crossed over the double-yellow traffic line and first hit a snow bank and then a tree.

He turned himself in at police headquarters.
He was released on a $50 bond and is scheduled to appear May 26 at state Superior Court in Bridgeport.
