Gianni Dimeglio, 34, of Trillium Circle, was arrested on a warrant Monday in connection with a three-car accident in June.

A Trillium Circle man was charged Monday on a warrant with driving under the influence and failure to drive right.

Gianni L. Dimeglio, 34, turned himself in at police headquarters and was released on a $100 bond. The arrest stems from a three-car accident June 25 on Black Rock Turnpike. According to police, Dimegilo was driving south on Black Rock Turnpike around 7:45 p.m. that day when he drifted into the northbound lane, striking two cars.

Dimeglio failed field sobriety tests, police said, but complained of a headache and said he was shaken up by the accident. As a result, he was taken to an area hospital.

Dimeglio is scheduled to appear Aug. 19 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
