Police on Tuesday night arrested a 54-year-old Norwalk man and charged him with interfering with an officer.
At about 5:44 p.m. on March 29, an officer on patrol stopped a vehicle traveling westbound on Lakeview Avenue because it’s license plate had expired, according to a police report.
During a subsequent motor vehicle stop, the officer identified the driver as a man for whom New Canaan Police had an active arrest warrant stemming from an incident last September, the report said. In addition, Norwalk Police had issued a paperless re-arrest warrant in connection with a 2015 motor vehicle charge.
In the New Canaan incident, from Sept. 1, the man was driving an unregistered and suspended vehicle, and he didn’t have insurance or a valid driver’s license, police said. He provided police at the time with a false name, though investigators later identified him and secured a warrant for interfering, the report said.
Police additionally cited him for illegal operation of a motor vehicle while under suspension, and he was charged with second-degree failure to appear.
They released him on a total bond of $10,250 and scheduled him to appear April 29 in state Superior Court.
