Pistol-packing food-truck driver charged with drunk driving in Stamford

STAMFORD – According to police reports, a food-truck driver was charged with driving under the influence after he allegedly sideswiped a car. The incident took place on Tuesday 26 February. Police told that later when they took a look inside the food truck, they found a loaded .40-caliber semi-automatic pistol, medication and beer cans. 54-year old Douglas Voytrshark, the driver of the food-truck, was also having trouble standing and holding on to his money when he was pulled over by the police.

According to police, Voytrshark, who belongs to 471 Rutland Road, Milford, was charged with leaving the scene of an accident and driving under the influence. Sgt. Richard Barbagallo further added that they received a call around 9:25 a.m. by a woman who parked her red Toyota Rav 4 on Stillwater Avenue outside the Stamford Market where she was picking up her mother. She told the police that when she came out five minutes later, the entire side of her car had been sideswiped by a passing vehicle. After arrival, police spoke to a witness at the scene who told that he had heard a crash from his second-floor apartment and saw a lunch truck driving off. While police was talking to the witness, they received another call that an inebriated lunch truck driver had just pulled into a construction site at the corner of Spruce Street and Finney Lane.

After receiving the call, police reached the site where they found Voytrshark wobbling on his feet. Police told him to sit on the bumper of his Piece of Cake food truck while they investigated the scene. Police officials were told by a worker at the construction site that Voytrshark wheeled his truck onto the property and proceeded to dig his front bumper into a pile of construction gravel.

Sgt. Richard Barbagallo further told that Voytrshark was having trouble standing and he kept dropping his money to the ground as he made change for customers. When police spoke to him during investigation, he was slurring his words and was unable to utter a coherent sentence.

According to Barbagallo, when police looked inside the truck, they found Voytrshark’s fanny pack, which contained a loaded .40-caliber semi-automatic pistol and some medications. There were also beer cans strewn around the cab of the truck.
