MERIDEN — A Middletown woman faces charges after police said she drove the wrong way down a one-way street on Sunday.

Jennifer Addy, 47, of 35 Lorraine St., Middletown, was charged Sunday with driving under the influence, reckless driving and driving the wrong way on a one-way street.

Officers were dispatched to the area of 626 West Main St. about 3:30 p.m. for a report of an erratic driver. The caller was driving behind the vehicle and relaying information to police. Officers saw the car on West Main Street, near Cook Avenue, and noted the driver, later identified as Addy, was going the wrong way on West Main Street, the report said. Officers followed Addy, who pulled into a parking lot on Butler Street. They recognized Addy and noted she was charged on Aug. 22 with driving under the influence.

Addy failed field sobriety tests and was taken into custody, the report said. She refused to submit to a breathalyzer test.

Addy was arraigned in Meriden Superior Court on Monday. The judge released her on a promise to appear with the conditions she comply with alcohol treatment and not drive under any circumstance. Her case was continued until Oct. 13.
