At about 2:25 a.m. on March 25, Christopher Maduri, 33, of Fairfield, was driving a 2010 Ford Fusion north on Mansfield Avenue in Darien when the car crossed over the center line, drove through the southbound lane and struck a utility pole near Knollwood Lane.

A police officer smelled alcohol on Maduri, who told the officer that he had drunk some beer. Maduri received minor injuries from the accident, and Darien EMS-Post 53 took him to Stamford Hospital.

Police later obtained a search warrant for Maduri's medical records, which showed his blood-alcohol level was over the legal limit for driving. A warrant for his arrest was granted by a judge on charges of driving while under the influence and failure to drive on the right side of the road.

Maduri, of Overlook Avenue in Fairfield, turned himself in to police on May 1 and was released on a written promise to appear May 11 in state Superior Court in Stamford.
