Traffic Stop Leads to Drug Arrest, Angry Mob In Norwalk

NORWALK, Conn. – Two 24-year-old Norwalk men were arrested and charged with narcotics and other violations Thursday following an altercation with Norwalk police on Harriett Street that also resulted in an angry mob yelling obscenities at officers.

Jamie Young of Freemont Street and Dwight Davis of Sention Avenue were charged with several misdemeanors, including possession and sale of narcotics, after police pulled them over for running a stop sign at about 1:45 p.m. and, police said, found crack cocaine in the vehicle.

Young also was charged with interfering with an officer, refusing to be fingerprinted, destruction of property and criminal mischief for kicking at the bars inside the police cruiser and spitting at an officer while in custody.

In addition, 46-year-old Harriett Street resident Karen Malik and her juvenile daughter were arrested on misdemeanor charges of breach of peace and interfering with an officer after they yelled obscenities at officers and tried to break up the arrest of Young and Davis, police said. Malik and her daughter were part of an angry mob that temporarily surrounded the police cruiser during the incident.

Young was held in lieu of a $100,000 bond, and Davis was held in lieu of a $25,000 bond, and both were scheduled to appear in Norwalk Superior Court Friday. Malik and her daughter were released after posting bonds and are scheduled to appear in Norwalk Superior Court on Nov. 29.
