WALLINGFORD — Two men face DUI charges after police found a vehicle stuck on the train tracks near Ward Street on Saturday night.

Josue Temazatzi, 50, of 197 Kimberly Ave., second floor., New Haven, was charged with driving under the influence, violation of a protective order, failure to drive in the proper lane, and driving without a license.

Ramon Rodriguez, 47, of 1051 Dixwell Ave., Hamden, was charged with driving under the influence.

Police responded to the area of Ward Street about 8:50 p.m. for a report of a vehicle stuck on the tracks and found Temazatzi and Rodriguez with the vehicle, according to a police report.
