Mass. man allegedly drove with open bottle of wine between legs

NEW CANAAN — Police charged a 61-year-old man from Weymouth, Mass. with drinking while driving after he allegedly was caught driving with a cup of wine in one hand and a bottle of wine between his legs.

Police said they responded to Oenoke Ridge Road on Feb. 21 around 4:20 p.m. on a report of a suspicious vehicle. The caller said a car driven by Kenneth Rosen, of Burkhall Street, had pulled into their driveway and left after the homeowner confronted him. Police found Rosen stopped on the side of Oenoke Ridge Road. When they approached Rosen, they saw a cup of wine in his left hand and an open bottle of wine between his legs. Rosen told police he’d been drinking while driving.

After a field sobriety test, Rosen was taken into custody and charged with drinking while driving and driving under the influence. His blood alcohol content at the time of arrest was not available. Rosen was held on a $250 bond and appeared in court Feb. 22.
