A Trumbull man is facing multiple charges after police allegedly found him asleep behind the wheel of his car July 23.
According to reports, police received a complaint of a silver Honda Accord being operated erratically on Williams Road. Upon arrival, officers found the Honda stopped diagonally across the road, with the driver, later identified as 20-year-old John Carmolingo of Trumbull, asleep behind the wheel.
