May 07, 2002|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A Westminster man who reported his car stolen early yesterday - then acknowledged he had forgotten where he parked it - later was arrested on drunken-driving charges, police said.

Oscar Zamaroon, 21, of the 100 block of E. Main St. called police at 12:48 a.m. yesterday, saying he had parked his Chevrolet Metro about 6 p.m. at a lot at Main and Liberty streets, according to charging documents.

After the car was located about 1 a.m. in the first block of W. Main St., Zamaroon said he had forgotten where he parked it, and agreed when the officer told him not to drive because he was intoxicated, according to the charging documents. Soon afterward, the same officer was on routine patrol on Pennsylvania Avenue, saw the car and pulled it over at Schoolhouse Avenue.

Zamaroon is charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, driving while impaired, and driving with a registration suspended under the state Vehicle Emissions Inspection Program. He was being held yesterday at the Carroll County Detention Center in lieu of $5,000 bail.
