Interfering Charge for New Canaan Man, 21


Police on Monday arrested a 21-year-old Gerdes Road man and charged him with interfering with an officer.

At about 12:21 p.m. on Sept. 13, an officer on patrol stopped a motor vehicle traveling on South Avenue with fraudulent license plates, according to a police report. The man said he had bought the license plates off of Amazon, the report said. Asked for his identification, the driver said he doesn’t have to provide it “as he is not driving only traveling,” it said.

Following an investigation, police arrested him on the misdemeanor charge. He also was charged with operating an unregistered motor vehicle, illegal operation of a motor vehicle without insurance, driving without a license and falsifying a marker plate.

Police released the man on $500 bond and scheduled him to appear Sept. 27 in state Superior Court.
