Husband and Wife Arrested for DUI on Same Night


A Connecticut woman was arrested Saturday night on suspicion of a DUI, when she arrived at Hamden police headquarters to pick up her husband who had been arrested for a DUI.

April Cassidy, a 32-year old Connecticut resident was arrested after she appeared intoxicated at the front desk of the police station. Cassidy was at headquarters because she was bailing her husband, 33-year-old Edwin Velez III, out of jail. Velez had been arrested a few hours earlier for a DUI.

Upon further investigation, police found Cassidy’s pickup truck parked in several spots reserved for police vehicles. The truck was littered with empty beer cans and wine bottles. Her husband was arrested earlier in the evening after police found his car crashed into a snow bank. The car was empty, but the engine was still running. Officers found him at his home nearby, and Velez failed a sobriety test, with his BAC almost three times the legal limit.

Both husband and wife have been charged with DUI, and will appear in a Connecticut court room on February 22. Velez is also being charged with risk of injury to a minor, the couple’s five-year-old daughter was in the car with him when he crashed into the snow bank.
