MONROE, CT — A 45-year-old Shelton woman was charged with DUI Friday morning after police found her brown 2006 Infinity partially in the roadway on Monroe Turnpike, near Pond View Road, at 3:30 a.m. The left front tire was flat, according to the report.

The officer said the driver did not know how her tire lost air, adding her speech was slow and the odor of an alcoholic beverage was emanating from her person.

The driver also appeared to be disoriented during questioning, according to the report.
