A Vienna police officer on Feb. 25 at 1:53 a.m. observed a driver commit a traffic violation in the 2100 block of Chain Bridge Road and initiated a traffic stop.

Upon interacting with the driver, the officer detected signs of impairment. The driver failed to complete a series of field-sobriety tests, police said.

The officer issued a summons to the man charging him with driving while intoxicated and offered to call an Uber for him and his passenger. The man refused to sign the summons and stated he and the passenger would walk home.
