EASTON — A Queenstown man is facing drunk driving charges after a Friday, Nov. 15, traffic stop in Easton.

Easton police said they stopped 49-year-old Thomas Howard Leigh of Queenstown in his vehicle for "failing to avoid projecting glaring light within 500 feet of (an) approaching vehicle," according to a news release.

Police said they smelled an alcoholic beverage in the vehicle and Leigh failed standardized field sobriety tests. He then refused an intoximeter test, police said.

Leigh was issued citations charging him with failure to avoid projecting light, driving under the influence and driving while intoxicated. He was released on personal recognizance.
