FAIRFIELD, CT — A Fairfield woman was arrested after police say she was operating under the influence when she crashed into a flower shop Sunday night in Fairfield. At about 6:45 p.m. on Jan.20, police responded to a report of a possibly intoxicated woman at Cumberland Farms on Post Road, according to Capt. Robert Kalamaras.
Kalamaras said that before patrols arrived in the area, the woman left the parking lot and crashed her vehicle into the building at Hansen’s Flower Shop, located at 1040 Post Road in Fairfield.
Katherine Kriewald, 39, of Fairfield, was arrested and charged with DUI, failure to maintain proper lane, and illegal storage of a narcotic after officers located oxycodone in her purse, according to Kalamaras. A drug recognition officer responded to evaluate Kriewald, according to Kalamaras.
