A Barrington man, 31, faces drunk driving, marijuana possession and other alcohol-related charges filed by Barrington police early Friday morning, Feb. 17.
Ryan N. Costa, of 12 Juniper St., was traveling south on Sowams Road when his vehicle was observed swerving several times over the center line by a patrol officer. He was pulled over near Zompa Road at 1:42 am.
Costa smelled of alcohol, police said, and an open container of beer was spotted in his vehicle. A search of the vehicle found some marijuana, which led to a charge of driving in possession of a controlled substance.
Costa failed field sobriety tests, police said. He refused to take the Breathalyzer test. He was scheduled to appear in 6th District Court Friday morning. A passenger in his vehicle was not charged.
