A man directing traffic around a bridge project in Warren has been charged with reckless endangerment after police say they found him drunk and asleep in a vehicle near the site.

Police arrested 42-year-old John Patrick Green of Waterbury yesterday after a report that a suspicious man had been wandering near homes in Warren village.

Police say he was taken to an alcohol detoxification unit after the incident.

Witnesses say Green had been directing vehicles over a one-lane bridge on Brook Road before police arrived.
