The victim of a large cut, who was bleeding profusely, caused a problem for a friend when he dialed 911 to get help Tuesday, Norwalk police say. The 911 operator heard a voice in the background say, "I have to get out of here, I think I have an arrest warrant." The operator told that to the police officer who was en route.
John Falquero, 44, of 296 Flax Hill Road, was arrested and charged with evading responsibility and failure to keep right on a curve/hill. Bond was set at $3,000.
Falquero was in the home on East Rocks Road when police and paramedics arrived to help the victim, who had a large cut on his ankle. Falquero was asked for his identification and told there was a warrant for his arrest in a motor vehicle accident that happened March 14 at 210 W. Rocks Road, Sgt. Lisa Cotto said. The one-car accident resulted in a car up against a stone wall in a resident's front yard. The car was on its side with its roof against the wall.
Residents described the man who ran away, Cotto said, and police found his ID in the car. His address was listed as 145 Wolfpit Ave., but his family said he did not live there and they did not know his exact address, because they didn't talk to him often.
