Man charged with DUI following Saugatuck Avenue accident

A Westport man was arrested following a single-car accident on Saugatuck Avenue earlier this week.

Christopher Vornkahl, 23, of High Street, was charged with operating under the influence of drugs/alcohol and failure to drive in the proper lane.

Officer responding to the accident -- around midnight Monday -- detected a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from the operator, according to the police report.

Vornkahl refused to perform roadside sobriety tests and was arrested at the scene, the report said. He was released after posting a $500 bond and is scheduled to appear June 2 in Norwalk Superior Court.
