Pound Ridge Cops Charge New Canaan Teen With DWI

POUND RIDGE, N.Y. – Pound Ridge police arrested a 19-year-old man from New Canaan, Conn. Sunday and charged him with aggravated DWI, a misdemeanor.

Police arrested Michael K. Forester after a routine traffic stop on High Ridge Road at around 12:40 a.m., when they allegedly found him parked on the road. Officers said Forester failed field sobriety tests and was escorted to police headquarters, where he was charged with aggravated DWI, which means he allegedly had a blood alcohol concentration of 0.18 percent – more than twice the legal limit. It was Forester’s first offense.

Forester was released on $200 bail and is due back in court June 25.
