Police: Wilton Man Charged with DUI + Gun Charges After His Ferrari Skids
My mom always used to tell me that driving drunk while carrying a loaded pistol meant I was making some bad choices.
An article in the Wilton Bulletin reports that Michael Corsi was allegedly flying down Danbury Road in his blue Ferrari, when he whipped by an unmarked police cruiser, and nearly smashed another car in Wilton around 1:00 AM Monday night/Tuesday morning (May 16).
When police pulled him over, he was given the standard field sobriety test and allegedly blew a 0.1782 on the meter, which is more than double the legal limit.
The police officer says he also spotted a concealed .32 caliber handgun in Corsi's back pocket which he had a permit for, but you can't carry while intoxicated. He was charged with driving under the influence, carrying a firearm while intoxicated, traveling too fast, failure to drive in the established lane, and following too closely. He posted a $1,500 bond and will be back in court on May 25.
I asked an attorney friend of mine about possible outcomes for Corsi when he steps in front of a judge on May 25. She told me he would most likely get a diversionary program on the DUI, and a fine for speeding. Corsi hit the trifecta, fast car, a DUI, and a loaded pistol. Maybe it's just my imagination, but it appears to me he's asking for a stay in the hoosegow.
