When a cab driver flagged police down Saturday night to alert them to a bloody passenger that had just got out of his car, it set in motion an investigation that led officers to a drinking party on Fairfield Beach Road and to a woman who was passed out in the snow, barely responsive.

Police located the bloody man in the parking garage downtown, near Firehouse Deli and the Fairfield University Bookstore. He told officers that he had been in a scuffle at a party on Fairfield Beach Road, but offered no further information and did not want to press charges, according to the police report.

The man, who police said appeared to be under the influence of alcohol, was transported to Bridgeport Hospital around 12:15 a.m. on Feb. 9.

The officers then traveled toward the beach, and reportedly found a loud and disruptive party in the house at 1027 Fairfield Beach Road. There were a lot of people in and around all three floors of the house, and empty beer cans and cups thrown throughout, police said.

The host, Alexander Case Cramer, 22, of Maryland, was charged with disorderly conduct.

As partygoers were being dispersed, the officers discovered a woman passed out in the snow. She was barely responsive, police said, and was taken to St. Vincent's Medical Center by ambulance.

Where were her friends? It was about 10 degrees last night. Congrats officers, you saved a life. Goodness gracious, where were her friends?

Congrats officers, as well as Taxi driver for reporting the condition of his passenger.

It was Saturday night, but still extremely COLD. This was nearly another fatality resulting from drunken partying--only averted by a diligent and pro-active taxi driver and PD................................ Why can't people have "fun" and "party" without drinking themselves into a stupor/vulnerable/or violent state? Some young man was shot and killed recently when there was a party in New Britain (if memory serves). So many needless tragedies.

Fairfield U needs to do something about this. This problem in the beach area has been going on for years. There are Sacred Heart girls renting a house down the street from me, and Sacred Heart boys down another street. These houses have been student rentals for as long as I have lived here, and Never a problem. But the beach are and FU students....the problems never end.

Thanks to the taxi driver and Fairfield police for saving a person's life. I also can't help but to wonder "where were her friends?"

Jason-Not a FU problem. It's the greedy landlords renting the houses to make a few bucks.

Landlords have the right to rent houses. Yet the Sacred Heart students in my neighborhood are fine neighbors. Why is the beach area different?

Jason, could it be that renting on the beach (higher rents?) is an indication of the primary motivation--ie PARTYING--of those students who choose to live there, rather than some place with more reasonable rates?

Perhaps the quality of student attending Fairfield U, tend to be more interested in partying than those at Sacred Heart. Perhaps Fairfield U should screen and recruit students who come to our town to learn first, party second.

Sadly, Jason, these expensive Ivy League schools have lost their religious/moral foundation and are much more interested in being profit centers, to support their highly paid staff and faculties. Even UConn is fairly expensive--for the TAXPAYERS, too!!--and has a terrible reputation for being a "party school" where too many students rudely drink and party and go on destructive binges................................................................................... Fairfield U is unlikely to screen and recruit the type of students as you suggest, and I doubt they even have a "Moral Code"--let alone anything like what BYU has (which is admittedly very strict). The motto at BYU is "Enter to Learn, and Go Forth to Serve." Liberty University and Hillsdale College are other fine schools for serious students with moral character.
