Greenwich BET Member Faces DWI Charge

First-term Board of Estimate and Taxation member Gregory Bedrosian was arrested by Greenwich Police.


Gregory R. Bedrosian, a first-term member of the Greenwich Board of Estimate and Taxation, was arrested by Greenwich Police last weekend on a driving under the influence charge.

According to a police report, Bedrosian, 46, of 25 Pecksland Rd., Greenwich, was stopped by police after making a turn from Arch Street onto Sound View Drive about 2:10 a.m. Feb. 8.

"The vehicle made an aggressive turn onto Soundview Drive while cutting the corner causing the vehicle to cross the double yellow lines on Arch Street," according to the report. Bedrosian allegedly crossed the double yellow line a second time. There was an odor of "alcoholic beverages emanting from Bedrosian" and his eyes "appeared to be glassy and bloodshot," according to the report.

Police said he failed field sobriety tests. Bedrosian also was charged with failure to drive right.

Bedrosian's lawyer, Eugene Riccio told Greenwich Patch Wednesday afternoon, "We do not have any comment regarding this situation."

Bedrosian, who is the CEO and a co-founder of the investment firm Redwood Capital Group in New York and was elected to his first-term two-year term on the town's finance board in 2011, posted a $220 bond and is scheduled to appear Feb. 22 in state Superior Court in Stamford.
