Police allege a city woman was intoxicated Monday evening when she drove her silver BMW into numerous parked cars in a lot behind 7 Windfield Street in East Norwalk.
According to police spokesman Lt. Praveen John, two Special Services officers reported they were driving out of a Mobile service station at the intersection of Windfield Street and East Avenue shortly after 6 p.m. when they saw a woman, later identified as Jeanne Ann Heiser, drive her vehicle into several parked cars.
They said they exited their vehicle, at which time Heiser allegedly backed her car into several more parked cars. They allege she then drove forward and struck the cars she had previously hit, then backed up and hit a red Dumpster, pushing it about ten feet.
The officers reported yelling at her to stop her car. They allege they heard her car’s engine “rev up,” but it was unable to move because it was hung up on a fence.
The officers said they put Heiser in handcuffs. They alleged she had the smell of alcohol on her breath.
Heiser allegedly failed a field sobriety test and was transported to Police
Heiser, 47, of 1 Gilbert St., was charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol, reckless driving, operating an uninsured motor vehicle, interfering with an officer, possession of narcotics, and failure to keep a prescription drug in its original container.
The officers reported finding an oxycondone tablet in Heiser’s car that was not in a prescription container.
Heiser was held on $3,250 bond and given a court date of Mar. 1.
