Police reports: Man charged with DUI

Larry Harris, 65, of Bridgeport was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol after nearly hitting a police cruiser on Dec. 11.

According to the police report, an officer on patrol saw a suspicious vehicle in a parking lot of closed businesses. The officer parked his cruiser behind the vehicle when the driver suddenly turned his car on and began backing up. The driver nearly hit the police cruiser before the officer sounded his siren to stop the car.

The officer then approached the car and saw a Budweiser can inside and a bottle of vodka in the cup holder. Harris also had the odor of alcohol on him. Harris told the officer he was in the parking lot to make a phone call.

The officer then had Harris perform a roadside sobriety test, which he failed and he was taken to police headquarters. Harris consented to a breathalyzer test, but failed to blow enough air for the test to work. Harris then consented to a urine test, which came up positive.

Additionally, Harris told police that he often drinks in the parking lot, adding that he does it two or three times a week.

Harris was released on $100 bond. He is due in court on Dec. 23.
