    A Sterling man was arrested on DUI charges in Danielson Saturday night.

    Connecticut State Police said they pulled over 38-year-old Nathan Corey on Main Street after a series of traffic violations. Corey failed field sobriety tests, police said.

    Troopers found a small amount of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and a 12-inch machete inside the car.

    Corey was wearing a t-shirt that read "Beer + beer = shenanigans" at the time.

    He was arrested and charged with operating under the influence of alcohol and a variety of traffic violations, as well as possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana, and weapons in a motor vehicle. He was issued a $10,000 bond and is due in Danielson Superior Court on Oct. 3.
