Here's a wrap-up of recent arrests for driving while intoxicated in Greenwich.

Driving with a flat tire just before 3 a.m. is bound to get the attention of a Greenwich Police officer. And that's what prompted an officer to stop the driver of a 2011 mini-van he reportedly saw driving with a flat tire and cross the double yellow line on the curve of Old Field Point Road near Railroad Avenue on March 22, according to a police report.

Jorge A. Cardenas-Rey, 26, address not given by police, refused all field sobriety test and told officers "he would fail them," according to a police report. After he was placed under arrest Cardenas-Rey allegedly began to threaten officers. He was charged with driving while intoxicated, operating with a suspended license, failure to keep right on a curve, operating without a license and threatening. He was held in lieu of $20,000 bond and scheduled to appear March 31 in state Superior Court in Stamford.

Falling asleep at the wheel of your car in the intersection of East Putnam Avenue in Riverside and the I-95 off-ramp apparently wasn't a good idea for a Harrison, NY man.

According to a Greenwich Police report, officers responding a report of a man sleeping inside a blue Lexus found Joseph R. Martin, 46, of Halstead Avenue, Harrison, asleep in the car at 4 a.m. March 24. "After several attempts to get Martin to wake up and then several more attempts to get him to open the vehicle, the odor of an alcoholic type beverage and urine was observed within the vehicle and on Martin's person," according to the report.
