Pearl River Woman Faces DWI Charge, Tried to Kick Greenwich Police

Greenwich Police say Melissa Teelin, 27, of Pearl River fled the scene of a car crash and later attempted to kick officers as they arrested her.

A motorist from Pearl River, who police say fled the scene of a car crash, was arrested on several charges including driving while intoxicated.

The 27-year-old woman is accused of leaving the scene of a car accident on Prospect Street in central Greenwich on March 28, according to a police report. She was stopped by police more than a mile away on West Putnam Avenue and Western Junior Highway.

According to the report, she smelled of alcohol and failed field sobriety tests before her arrest about 7:30 p.m. She was charged with driving while intoxicated, evading responsibility and failure to signal.

She also was charged with interfering with a police officer.

"While being placed under arrest, the accused was attempting to kick police officers and attempted to kick out the window of a patrol vehicle," according to the report.

She was released after posting $500 bond and scheduled to appear April 12 in state Superior Court in Stamford.

Details on the accident were not included in the report.

Let me get this straight - this incident has not happened yet. It's due on Friday 28th and she'll be arrested at 7:30 p.m. Correct? Or did it happen a year ago and if so, why is it being regurgitated now?

This story is a year old. I remember when it was published last year.
