original story: NORWALK, Conn. – A Norwalk man was charged with driving under the influence while his child was in the car early Saturday, according to police reports.
An officer on patrol on South Main Street saw a car make a U-turn and cross the center line repeatedly at about 2:30 a.m. Saturday, police said.
Marc Damelio, 45, of Ellen Street was driving the car at the time, with his child and three unnamed men, police said.
Damelio failed field sobriety tests at the scene and was taken to police headquarters. A breath test conducted there registered his blood alcohol content at 0.117 and 0.116, which is over the legally allowed limit, police said.
Damelio was charged with driving under the influence, risk of injury to a minor, failure to drive in the proper lane and making a restricted turn. He was held on $25,000 bond and is due in court on Jan. 21.
