Drinking While Driving + Ignoring Officer's Order = Arrest

A roundup of Greenwich Police arrests.

With a Corona beer between his legs and the remaining six-pack of beer in his car, a motorist was arrested by Greenwich Police on several charges including drinking while driving.

The Saturday afternoon incident unfolded as a Greenwich Police officer was directing traffic around an accident scene on Fairfield Road, according to a Greenwich Police report. The officer reported that the motorist failed to heed directions to stop as emergency medical service personnel treated a bicyclist who had fallen onto the road.

The officer noticed the opened bottle of Corona and asked the driver "if he had been drinking. He told the officer 'I just started,' " according to police spokesman Lt. Kraig Gray. "He passed field sobriety tests but didn't have a valid license. He had the first out of a six-pack ... that was found inside the car."

Samuel Mix Maldonado, 32, of 68 Garden St., Stamford, was charged with drinking while driving, operating without a valid license and failure to bring a motor vehicle to a stop. He was released after posting $1,000 bond and scheduled to appear Sept. 24 in state Superior Court in Stamford.


A Stamford woman surrendered to Greenwich Police who obtained an arrest warrant charging her with larceny and illegal credit card use.

According to police, Gelsimina Ceci, 50, of 279 E. Intervale Rd., Stamford, is accused of using a friend's credit card to make utility payments on May 30 and June 6. Police said the friend previously used the cards to help Ceci pay bills and that Ceci used those credit card numbers to make additional unauthorized payments.

Ceci was charged with fourth-degree larceny and sixth-degree larceny and two counts of illegal use of a credit card. She was released after posting $1,000 bond and scheduled to appeawr Sept. 21 in state Superior Court in Stamford.


Two Greenwich teens face charges stemming from a verbal argument outside a Seitz Lane residence.

The pair was arrested at 12:50 a.m. Sept. 14 after Greenwich Police received a report about the argument. Wade Curley, 18, of 6 Benders Dr., was charged with first-degree criminal trespass, and Britni Longo, 18, of 5 Seitz Ln., was charged with second-degree breach of peace.

Each was released on a promise to appear Sept. 14 in state Superior Court in Stamford.
