William V. Spielman, 54, of Norwalk was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, second degree threatening and operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol at 1:28 p.m. Jan. 27 during a dispute he had with the 54-year-old male owner of the Gulf gas station on South Avenue.

According to police, Spielman arrived at the station and began screaming, cursing and threatening the owner. Police said the dispute between Spielman and the owner was about work done on Spielman's car. Spielman felt that the owner had charged him too much for the work on his car and resorted to threatening him, police said.

When officers arrived at the scene, they detected alcohol on Spielman's breath and conducted field sobriety tests. Since he had driven to the gas station, he was charged with operating a vehicle under the influence, police said.

He was taken to police headquarters where he posted a $2500 bond. He will appear in court Feb. 8.
