Driver stopped by police after near-miss with parked car.

A Connecticut man who narrowly avoided hitting a parked car on North Main Street in Port Chester was charged with drunken driving, according to Port Chester Police.

Manolo Torres, 47, of 28 Perry St., Stamford, CT, was stopped by a village police officer at 2:25 a.m. Sunday as the 2001 Toyota he was driving just missed hitting another car at the intersection with Mill Street, police said. 

Police said Torres appeared intoxicated when he was questioned and a computer check revealed Torres' driver's license had been suspended by the Department of Motor Vehicles.

Torres was charged with driving while intoxicated and aggravated driving while intoxicated for having more than twice the legal limit of alcohol in his system, police said. He was also charged with driving with a suspended license.

Torres faces a hearing in Port Chester Village Court.
