Wilton Man Charged With Reckless Driving in Norwalk

NORWALK, Conn. – An erratic driver was apprehended Sunday by an off-duty Norwalk police officer who saw the Wilton man "showing no regard for other motorists," Sgt. Lisa Cotto said.

Police were alerted at 10:20 a.m. to an erratic driver in a turquoise pickup truck on Ferris Avenue but were unable to find him, Cotto said. At 11 a.m., there was another complaint involving a turquoise pickup truck. The caller said it went through a red light at Maple and Van Buren streets and was speeding.

At 11:10 a.m., Lt. Brian Cunningham, who was off-duty, spotted the turquoise pickup truck on West Rocks Road, Cotto said. He followed as it went up Union Avenue on the wrong side, and he saw many motor vehicle violations. When the "monster truck" pulled into the Cumberland Farms on Main Street, Cunningham followed it in.

Alden Taylor IV, 20, of 20 Forge St., Wilton, had to be removed from the vehicle and seemed incoherent, Cotto said. He did not know what time of day it was. There was an odor of alcohol, his eyes were bloodshot and glassy, and he was unsteady on his feet.

He was arrested and became verbally abusive and uncooperative. He refused a breathalyzer test.

Taylor was charged with reckless driving, operating a vehicle under the influence and operating a vehicle on a suspended registration. Bond was set at $1,000.
