DANBURY -- A suspected drunk driver was charged with illegal parking after city police say he dozed off at the wheel while idling at a stop light.
According to police, Luis Lopez-Ormaza, of Robinson Avenue, snoozed through "several green lights" before officers approached his vehicle.
They smelled alcohol on his breath after asking him to step out of the car, said Danbury police spokesman Capt. Thomas Wendel.
Lopez-Ormaza was taken into custody after he failed a Breathalyzer test, Wendel said.
The arrest happened shortly after 2 a.m. on Monday in the area of 67 Newtown Road.
The 22-year-old was booked on charges of driving while intoxicated and illegal parking, Wendel said.
