Last summer, Outpost Pizza became a drive-through.
At 3:30 a.m. on June 27, a pickup truck crashed into the side of the building. The driver, 21-year-old Jacob Teto of Shelton, came eastbound on Canal Street, taking out a significant portion of the restaurant across from Hudson Malone.
The investigating officer said Teto showed signs of intoxication, including slurred speech and bloodshot eyes. He was taken to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries. A toxicology report showed blood alcohol content over the legal limit.
An arrest warrant was obtained. Last night, Teto turned himself in at police headquarters. He was charged with operating under the influence of drugs/alcohol, and failure to drive in the proper lane.
He posted a $1,000 bond, and will be arraigned at Stamford Superior Court on October 6.
That Putz owes me quite a few slices of Pizza…Outpost is my go-to and I couldn’t get any for awhile!
Three months to charge a drunk driver? Why?
I just looked up the typical length of license suspension for 1st DUI offense in CT, and according to some lawyer’s website, it’s a lousy 45 days. Clearly someone who drives like a madman while drunk at 3;00 am is something worse than an ordinary DUI caught for weaving a little. The roads are filled with crazy bad drivers these days — and the death toll shows it!
‘….an ordinary DUI….’, you’re kidding me.
He probably hired the DUI lawyer who’s website popped up on Google! More likely the prosecutors have been jammed up because they and the entire criminal court system have been on a year-and-a-half paid vacation during Covid.
As recently as August 27, police made another DUI arrest at the scene. I’m sure there’s a logical explanation.
Why would it take them so long?!!!!
Their press release says he was hospitalized after the accident. That they had to do a search and arrest warrant.
How about finding out whether this dirtbag was an Insured or Uninsured driver? Hopefully the pizza joint can go after the driver’s insurance company for money……but my gut tells me that there isn’t any insurance to be found.
I, and the damaged business, hope I’m dead wrong.
Great News .. Now he can make restitution for all of the money they lost , while being closed .. Including the Employee’s lost wages
