A Port Chester man who was found slumped over the steering wheel of a running car that was stopped in the middle of a street has been charged with drunken driving, according to Port Chester Police.
Anthony Marrero, 25, of 7 West St., was so deeply passed out that it took several minutes for village police officers to wake him up as he sat in the driver's seat in a 2001 Lexus at 4 a.m. on Friday, police said. At the time, the car was stopped at Bent Avenue and Sherman Street, with the car's engine running.
Police said the car was in drive, but Marrero's foot was on the brake.
Police said they were able to wake Marrero up and get him safely out of the car. He was then charged with driving while intoxicated and aggravated driving while intoxicated because he had more than twice the legal limit of alcohol in his system, police said.
Marrero was later released on $250 bail pending a hearing on Thursday in Port Chester Village Court.
