The driver also refused to submit to a breath analysis test.After placing the man under arrest, police contacted the children’s mother and had her pick them up from the scene before transporting the suspect back to headquarters.As police processed the driver back at the department, they learned that the man had initially lied to police about his identity. Fingerprint analysis revealed that the man was Antonio Guzman-Retana, a 36-year-old Danbury resident who already been deported twice from the U.S for illegal immigration.Guzman-Retana was charged with driving while under the influence, driving while under the influence with children in the car, operating with no driver’s license and failure to drive in the proper lane. He was held on a $15,000 bond, and he was scheduled to be arraigned the next day.While in lockup, police also discovered that Guzman-Retana also had an active warrant for his arrest out of Danbury for first-degree failure to appear, which means he missed a date to face felony charges in court. For this offense, Guzman faced an additional $7,500 bond.Since the suspect is an illegal immigrant, Lt. Rob Kluk, a police spokesman, said that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement was also informed about the arrest.
