Cops: Fairfield Woman, Arrested for DUI, Threatens Officer's Children

A Fairfield woman was slapped with a DUI after leaving late Saturday night.

Police said they observed Arlene Gasper, 31, walk unsteadily to her car, start it and then throw several coffee cups from her vehicle in the area of Main Street and East Broadway.

Officers said when they approached Gasper they could smell alcohol on her breath and her eyes were bloodshot. Gasper reportedly told officers she had two Long Island Iced Teas. 

A receipt found in the woman's vehicle from McCoy's earlier that night showed an order of 1 Bud Light can and 3 "Wrong Island Iced Teas," police said. 

The Fairfield woman was allegedly bobbing as she did the eye test and could not perform the walk-and-turn test. When asked to count down from 60 to 50, police said Gasper became irate.

She was arrested for suspected DUI and, after a brief struggle, was placed in the back of a patrol car.

En route to , Gasper made numerous threats toward officers, police said.

"I am from Fairfield, you'll see what is going to happen to you," police said she told them.

During booking, police said she threatened to harm an officer's children: "I'll see that your children go to hell."

When asked to take a breath test, Gasper reportedly became increasingly agitated. Police said she refused the opportunity to call a lawyer after asking she call one. At one point, police said she kicked an officer.

Gasper had her license seized for a 24-hour period and was charged with: driving under the influence; littering; interfering with an officer; assault of a peace officer; second-degree threathening.

She was given a court date of March 28 and held on $1,000 bond.
