Brooklyn man hits median, interpreter called to scene
Police arrested Wan Li, 50, of Brooklyn, N.Y., for driving under the influence of alcohol at the intersection of Main Street and Route 25 at 12:18 a.m. Friday, June 17.
According to a report, Li was driving erratically on Main Street when an officer observed his vehicle strike a median before coming to a stop.
Li was witnessed waving his hands outside of his car to call over the officer. He pointed to the front tire of his vehicle, which was reportedly flat.
The report said that Li appeared confused and disoriented and that after the initial gesture to the officer, he became incoherent, staring blankly ahead as he was asked questions about the accident.
The officer determined that Li spoke little English and a Chinese translator was called to the scene to speak to him.
He told police, through the interpreter, that he only consumed one drink.
However, the report said he failed several field sobriety tests and was transported to Trumbull police headquarters.
Li’s blood alcohol concentration was .18%, the report added.
He was released on a $500 bond and is scheduled to appear in court Monday, July 11.
