A man from Hartford, Connecticut is facing charges after someone on the road called and informed the police that he was driving his vehicle unsafely, in addition to the police allegedly finding him abusing a woman who was riding as a passenger.
At approximately 9:00 PM on March 24, a 20-year-old was driving down a highway in South Windsor with a female passenger.
People driving along the same route reportedly noticed that the car was being operated in a way that they considered to be unsafe.
A bystander placed a call to the authorities, and they reported that they noticed the vehicle was driven to the back side of a Hartford Federal Credit Union building.
Officers with the South Windsor Police Department went to the address of the credit union to see if the vehicle was still there.
When they arrived, the officers reported that the man was allegedly yelling very loudly at the woman.
After more investigation into the situation, the police believed the man wrapped his hands around her neck while trying to remove the female from the vehicle. They additionally asserted that he was driving under the influence.
The man was placed under arrest and taken to the police headquarters for processing. While he was there, he reportedly agreed to perform sobriety tests, which the authorities claim he did not pass.
He is expected to face charges of driving under the influence, second-degree breach of peace, and violation of the conditions of his release. The latter charge was added after the suspect was ordered against having any contact with the alleged victim, but he allegedly called her before he got out of jail.
The man was released after posting a $5,000 non-surety bond.
