A South Windsor police officer stopped a Granby driver early Saturday morning, later charging him with driving while under the influence of alcohol, police said.

South Windsor police gave this account (an accusation not proven in court)  of the matter:

At about 3 a.m., Jonathan Corey, 33, of North Main Street, Granby, was driving on Avery Street when his vehicle was seen by a police officer.

The officer stopped the vehicle for a traffic violation for a reason that police didn't directly say, although Corey was later charged with speeding and failure to obey a traffic-control signal.

For some reason (that police, again, didn't specify), the officer suspected Corey was intoxicated. Corey was given field sobriety tests, which Corey apparently didn't pass, because he was then arrested on the driving-under-the-influence charge and the two traffic violations mentioned above.

Corey was later released on paying a $1,500 bond. He is scheduled to appear June 23 in state Superior Court in Manchester.

North Main Street, in Granby? I believe you mean EAST Granby, which is a completely different town than Granby.

Lenny, this is just another reason I've lost confidence in any story printed in Patch.
