Police say a Sandy Hook driver who veered off the road and ended up in the grass late Thursday evening was driving under the influence, according to reports.
Police responded to a report of a car off the road at about 11:46 Thursday evening on Berkshire Road. They concluded the driver had been heading east and lost control, veering off into the grass on the westbound shoulder.
The driver, Oskar Dean, was charged with Driving Under the Influence and Failure to Drive Right. He was released on $100 bond and is scheduled to appear in court Sept. 25, according to reports.
Reports are based on information from the Newtown Police Department and do not indicate guilt.
