A Brookfield resident using his plow to push a car up Federal Road early Sunday morning was arrested for allegedly doing so under the influence.
Mark Trotta, 51, of Cove Road, was seen driving north on Federal Road at 2:24 a.m. on Feb. 10, pushing another vehicle with his snowplow. After being stopped by police, Trotta told them he was assisting by pushing the other vehicle, which had become inoperable on Route 7.
Further investigation, including Trotta’s failure of field sobriety tests, resulted in his arrest for DUI. He was additionally charged with possession of less than half an ounce of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Trotta was released on $200 cash bond with a court date set for Feb. 22 in Danbury Superior Court.
