Two DUI Arrests in Darien

Two men were arrested last week on charges of driving while under the influence of alcohol.

gave these accounts of two separate arrests last week on charges of driving while under the influence of alcohol:

March 25: Mansfield Avenue

At about 2:25 a.m., Christopher Maduri, 33, of Fairfield, was driving a 2010 Ford Fusion north on Mansfield Avenue 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.

Saturday: Post Road

Shortly before 11 p.m., a police officer saw a 2004 BMW 325xi travelling west on the eastbound lanes of Post Road, somewhere west of the intersection with Thorndal Circle.

The driver, Isaac Davis, 32, of Sandford Boulevard, Mount Vernon, NY, failed a field sobriety test and was charged with driving while under the influence and failure to drive on the right side of the road.

Davis posted a $5,000 bond and is scheduled to appear May 15 in state Superior Court in Stamford.

The high bond was imposed "due to Davis' lengthy criminal history," said Darien Police Capt. Frederick W. Komm, a spokesman for the department.
