Drunk Driving Charge for Man, 31, After Striking State Police Vehicle

Police last weekend arrested a 31-year-old Norwalk man for striking a Connecticut State Police vehicle while driving drunk the wrong way through a construction zone in New Canaan. At about 10:55 p.m. on Nov. 4, police were dispatched to the area of Old Stamford Road at Exit 36 on a report of the crash, officials said. After striking the patrol vehicle, the Norwalk man drove off the roadway and into a ditch, according to a police report. On speaking to the motorist, police smelled both marijuana and alcohol, the report said.

Police Chief: On Veterans Day, Honoring Members of NCPD Who Have Served

Dear Editor:

Every day, the men and women of the New Canaan Police Department protect and serve our town with great distinction. 

On Nov. 11, Veterans Day, we honor those who pledged to protect and serve our great country-our Veterans. Veterans Day honors the service and sacrifice of those who have served in the U.S. Military. 

I want to recognize the following Department members who have served in our military and continue to serve our town:

Commissioner Sperry DeCew-U.S. Army
Lieutenant Bill Ferri-U.S. Army
Lieutenant Jim George-U.S. Army
Sergeant Aaron LaTourette-U.S. Marine Corps
Officer Geoff Lambert- U.S. Marine Corps
Officer Roy Adams-Connecticut Army National Guard
Officer Bryan Connolly-U.S. Coast Guard
Officer Rex Sprosta-U.S. Marine Corps
Officer Matt Marzano-U.S. Marine Corps
Officer Chris Dewey-U.S. Army and New York Army National Guard
Officer David Rivera-U.S. Air Force
Officer Matthew Blank- Connecticut Army Air National Guard
Officer Owen Ochs- U.S. Army

Often our officers are not adequately recognized for the great work they do every day. Of the approximately 17,000 calls for service that our officers handle each year, some of these incidents are violent and put our officers in harm’s way. Our officers consistently handle these incidents with great skill, bravery, and dedication.
