Police on Thursday night arrested a 67-year-old New Canaan man who tried to prevent officers from investigating a report of youths riding ATVs on his street, officials said.
At about 7:52 p.m. on Aug. 29, officers were dispatched to Deep Valley Road on a report of youths riding ATVs and off-road motorcycles on both the public roadway and a private lane near the man’s home, according to a police report.
Police were interviewing a youth possibly involved in the incident when the man disrupted them, trying to prevent the officers from conducting their investigation, the report said.
He continued to interrupt the officers and yelled at them in an attempt to stop them from speaking to the youth without disruption, it said.
Police charged the man with interfering.
He was released on $1,000 bond and scheduled to appear Sept. 9 in state Superior Court in Norwalk.
New Canaan Police had arrested the same man in January 2018 after a 14-year-old boy not wearing a helmet had crashed an ATV that Deep Valley Road man owned into a tree. The man pleaded guilty to second-degree reckless endangerment in that case, Connecticut Judicial Branch records show.
