A New Haven man faces several charges following a motor vehicle accident that occurred in December 2012.

According to the original report, a golfer found a man lying on the ground in the woods on the Fairchild Wheeler Golf Course just before 10 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 2. The man's car was found 50 yards away.

The man reportedly told police that he had been driving home from a friend's house around 2 a.m. on Sunday, but he needed to find a place to park and sleep because he had taken too many pills.

While driving around to find a place to park, police said the man lost control of his vehicle, drove off of Golfview Terrance, and struck trees and bushes on Fairchild Wheeler Golf Course before his car came to rest.

The man also reportedly told police that he had been experimenting with various pills before taking too many, which he believe caused the accident, according to the report.

He was taken to St. Vincent's Medical Center for treatment of leg and hip injuries. Police applied for a search warrant to obtain the man's blood alcohol content level the night of the accident and determined it has been above the legal limit. Officers applied for a warrant for the man's arrest.

The man -- identified as Tudormatei Boran, 20, of Lloyd Street -- turned himself in at police headquarters on Monday.

Boran was charged with failure to drive right, operating a vehicle under the influence, failure to keep prescription pills in their original containers, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

He was released after posting a $500 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on March 7.
