The young man heard a loud bang at about 6 a.m. and looked out his window to see that the SUV Campos was driving allegedly had hit his truck. The SUV then hit another legally parked vehicle, according to Sgt. Lisa Cotto. The man went out to see whether Campos was injured, and Campos allegedly lunged at him. Campos smelled of alcohol and was hostile and violent, police said.
The driver of the other vehicle came out to help restrain Campos, who was taken to the hospital because he banged his head. Police applied for warrant to learn his blood alcohol content, which came back at 0.203, which is above the legal limit. Campos was arrested Thursday by Darien police and was charged with operating under the influence and failure to drive in the proper lane. Bond was set at $2,500.
