NORWALK, Conn. — A man speeding around Norwalk last week tried to escape a police pursuit before crashing into a fire hydrant, according to the Hour.
Police told the Hour that an officer saw Curtis David III speeding on Martine Luther King Drive at around 2:30 a.m. Friday and began following him. David sped around several corners, and the officer lost sight of him, before it was discovered that David had swerved off the road on Ely Avenue and hit a hydrant, the Hour reported.
David still tried to pull away and leave, but his car was too damaged, according to the Hour. He was initially uncooperative with officers before complying, according to the Hour. It was discovered that he was on probation and had a suspended license, and also had brass knuckles and a gun-shaped knife in his car, the Hour reported.
He was arrested and charged with reckless driving, operating with a suspended license, weapons in a vehicle, failure to obey a stop sign, failure to drive in the proper lane and failure to carry insurance, according to the Hour.
