Two drivers were arrested in separate incidents this weekend after allegedly driving under the influence, police said.
On Saturday afternoon, a motorist called police to report that a Toyota Camry was operating erratically. The driver appeared to be falling asleep at the wheel, police said.
A Braintree officer saw the vehicle parked at an Elm Street parking lot and approached the driver, who was asleep.
When the officer woke up the man, a 53-year old Braintree resident, the car allegedly began to roll backwards. The officer and another officer attempted to slow the vehicle while one of the officers put his foot inside the vehicle and pressed the break.
According to police, the man was unable to perform sobriety tests. At one point, the operator allegedly fell asleep and cut his knees.
He was transported to Quincy Medical Center for treatment and will be summonsed to court on charges of operating under the influence of alcohol. His name has not yet been released as he has not yet been charged.
Another arrest was made on Sunday morning after a woman allegedly crashed into a utility pole on Walnut Ave.
The driver allegedly showed multiple signs of intoxication and failed sobriety tests.
Police arrested Danielle C. Latteo, 27, of Weymouth and charged her with operating under the influence of alcohol.
At the station, Latteo’s Breathalyzer test showed results over the legal limit of .08 percent.
