A Greenwich man who crashed into a stone wall on Boston Post Road at Olivia Street made his second court appearance on Friday.
Andres Reyes, 22, allegedly sped out of the parking lot of Bally's in the early morning hours of Aug. 17, catching the attention of a police officer. The officer lost Reyes' 2007 Honda, but then heard a loud crash. When police arrived, Reyes and three teenage passengers were standing outside of the car and declined medical attention.
Reyes is now charged with his first DWI, as well as speeding and reckless driving. He said on Friday that he could not afford an attorney, though at his arraignment he claimed he would hire his own.
Reyes was given an attorney and assigned to Treatment Alternatives for Safer Communities (TASC), a drug and alcohol screening and rehabilitation program. The case was adjourned to Sept. 3.
Woman Makes Bail in Drug Case, Says She Will Attend Program
A Port Chester woman is promising to make good on the court's demands after a small amount of heroin was found in her car.
Michelle Flower was riding in the passenger seat of her car Aug. 12 when the man driving the car made an illegal turn and was pulled over by police. The man had no license, so the police searched the car and found the drugs. Flower is now charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.
Flower skipped an arraignment on Aug. 13, but surrendered to police on Aug. 18. She provided proof to the court that she was in a hospital receiving methadone treatments.
Flower was released on her own recognizance Thursday by Judge Joseph Vita, who also noted "a series of negative reports" from the counciling service to which Flower was assigned.
On Friday, Flower said she is ready to cooperate with her counselors, and had made an appointment for Monday morning. The case was adjourned to Sept. 13.
