A North Fairfield driver refused to submit to any sobriety tests after he reportedly left the scene of a recent crash investigated by the state Highway Patrol.
Cody N. Fidler, 29, of 349 Edwards Road, was charged with driving under the influence and failure to control in connection with the accident that happened at 11:20 p.m. Saturday.

The suspect has a prior DUI conviction from 2004, troopers said.
