Woman charged with DUI after bumping car at traffic light

A fender-bender Tuesday afternoon led to the arrest of a Mill Plain Road woman for driving under the influence.

Mary Saunders, 59, rear-ended the car in front of her when it stopped for a red traffic light on the Post Road at Beach Road around 12:30 p.m., police said. Saunders, the report said, appeared confused and her speech was slurred. She failed field sobriety tests, according to the report.

Saunders was released on a $100 bond and is scheduled to appear Sept. 23 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
