Port Chester police were called to a Regent Street parking lot at 8:22 p.m. on Sunday, Mar. 31, after a man allegedly collided with other cars.

According to the police report, while Ramon Zepeda was driving a white van in reverse, he backed up and struck several parked vehicles. When police approached the driver upon arrival, he allegedly had bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, and his breath smelled like alcohol.

After Zepeda allegedly admitted that he did not have a driver’s license, police asked him to exit the vehicle. Because he had difficulty standing, no onsite sobriety tests were performed. A search of his car allegedly revealed several cold and empty Modelo cans.

Later, his blood alcohol content was revealed at .30 percent, more than three times the legal limit of .08. A background check also allegedly revealed his driving privileges had been suspended due to previous drunk driving convictions.

The 17 Parker St. resident was charged with felony counts of driving while intoxicated and aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle and for driving without an interlock device, a misdemeanor. He was also charged with violations for backing unsafely and having open containers of alcohol in the car.
