Woman Charged With DUI With Son in Car

A Greenwich woman, who was driving with her 12-year-old son in the car, was arrested on DUI charges Friday at the scene of a one-car accident. Terese Garsson, 43, of 58 N. Oldstone Bridge Road, Cos Cob, crashed her car against a stone wall off Cat Rock Road.

Police said they smelled alcohol on Garsson's breath and her eyes appeared red and glassy. She failed field sobriety tests and was arrested on charges of driving under the influence, risk of injury to a minor and failure to maintain a proper lane. She posted a $1,000 bond and is due in court Jan. 14.
