NEW CANAAN, Conn. — A New Canaan snowplow operator charged with driving under the influence after a crash in February has also been charged with carrying a firearm under the influence, Sgt. Carol Ogrinc said Monday.

On Feb. 2, the Norwalk resident, suspected of crashing the plow he was operating while being under the influence of alcohol, told police he had a gun in his personal car, which was parked at the Highway Department, Ogrinc said. A ruger .380 was found and secured by police that night, she said.

The man was charged with carrying a firearm under the influence because it is believed he drove his personal vehicle while intoxicated with the gun in it, Ogrinc said. The suspect turned himself in to police March 18 on the weapon charge, she said.

He did have a permit, she said.

The case is still considered under investigation she said.

Its amazing how distorted and crazy liberals are when they "read" a story and project their insanity! They "think" they read something about their political status!! Then to resort to name calling...

If you need to resort to exaggeration and out-right lies, then you aren't making a point, you are making yourself look like a crazy idiot.

Remember, you are a liberal if you value tolerance except for opinions that you dislike.

Lousfool at first I thought I missed the name but adding to your thought lets play pretend.

If your a Mayor of a big city in Ct invited to a big political party in Stamford and get pulled over going home and mention you know the Mayor of Stamford well there you go.Then you dodge any blame when your chariot was a city car and then get elected to the office of Mayor yes republicans are good at playing the card.

Its election time and where most think I have an agenda the fight at pulse point today shows clearly those three officers in the school may not be enough to comabt crime in Norwalk.

Harry is running on how he cleaned up wahington village any news today showing us all crime had gone back set up shop and was in full swing shows idiots still running the show and idiots running for office.

What would I suggest a more aggressive force to prevent crime than to let it happen for months and in between officer of the month make a big bust,,come on big busts and tons not bags people.

So why not a name? This does sound a bit open to have anyone think its a high profile idiot from Norwalk.Who uses a gun to plow snow with why would anyone admit a gun at all the kids don't why should the adults?

Hope to see a very good update on this Nickerson is gone and Steve is on vacation so yes the Daily has the exclusive.

In other words, no proof and nothing going to stick.
