On September 30, 2022 at approximately 11:30 PM, Westport Police responded to a one-car motor vehicle crash on Cross Highway in the area of #188. Responding Officers located the crash and found the operator, Sholah Weinbaum of Westport, CT, aged 61 at the time, seated in the driver seat.

Following a thorough investigation, an arrest warrant was issued. On September 22, 2023, Ms. Weinbaum surrendered herself in connection to the active warrant. She was subsequently charged with Driving Under the Influence and Failure to Drive in Proper Lane. After the arrest, she was released on a court-set bond of $5,000.00.
