A Westport woman was charged with driving under the influence on Friday after the car she was reportedly driving struck the rear of a marked police cruiser.
The incident -- which sent the officer in the cruiser to Norwalk Hospital with minor injuries -- occurred around 7:30 p.m. Friday at the intersection of Post Road East and Cedar Road. Responding officers spoke with the driver of the car that struck the cruiser and noted there was a strong odor of alcohol emanating from the vehicle and person.
The driver -- identified as Tammie Sergerson, 53, of Greens Farms Road, reportedly failed field sobriety tests and was arrested. She was charged with driving under the influence and following too closely.
Sergereson was held in lieu of a $500 bond and is scheduled to appear at Norwalk Superior Court on Sept. 3.
