NORWALK, Conn. ‒ A 21-year-old Bridgeport man was arrested Saturday for allegedly carrying a handgun and punching a Norwalk police officer, police said.
Frank Wright was charged with carrying a dangerous weapon, assault on a police officer, criminal possession of a revolver, interfering with an officer and carrying a gun without a permit. He was held on a $100,000 bond and will appear in court Feb. 26.
Police received a call early Saturday morning about a fight on Washington Street. They saw Wright running from a crowd and gave chase, according to police reports.
An officer saw Wright reach into the front of his pants and pull out a shiny metal object, according to the report. The officer pinned Wright against a Jeep and saw him throw the object underneath the car, according to the report. As police tried to handcuff him, Wright began resisting and hit one officer in the face, according to the report.
Police finally cuffed him and transported him to headquarters. They looked underneath the Jeep and found a Smith and Wesson .38-caliber revolver, according to the report.
