On Sunday evening, police officers pulled over a Shelton man and arrested him for drunken driving around 5:30 p.m.  Police saw the 2002 Acura MDX of Joseph Reis passing a vehicle on the left as another driver waited at a stop sign.  The incident took place at the intersection of Elm and Church streets in Monroe, Connecticut.

According to the police report, the office pulled over Reis and directed him to park on Bug Hill Road.  Police said Reis claimed to the officer that he was in a rush to arrive at a family member’s house because he was having a medical issue.  He was unable to get officers the address he was in route to.  Police detected the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage, but did call Monroe EMS to check on his medical condition.  The EMS team determined Reis did not have the medical condition and according to police he refused any type medical treatment.  Field sobriety tests determined that Reid was under the influence, which lead to his arrest.  The report also noted that Joseph Reis refused to participate in breath tests at the police headquarters.

Joseph Reid, 24, was charged with: driving under the influence, passing in a no passing zone, and for failure to drive in the proper lane.  He was released on $500 bond and his court date was set for May 7, 2013
