NEW CANAAN — Police arrested a 39-year-old New Canaan man after he allegedly refused to stop when an officer attempted to pull him over for driving through a stop sign.
On Nov. 17 around 1 p.m., an officer saw Cory Lynch drive through a stop sign at the intersection with Locust Avenue while going north on Forest Street. The officer attempted to pull Lynch over to conduct a motor vehicle search, but Lynch ignored the officer’s signal to stop. Officers later located Lynch and called him while outside his home on Charles Place, but Lynch refused to go outside to talk to the officers. A warrant was then put out for Lynch’s arrest for interfering with an officer.
On Jan. 2 around 2:30 p.m., Lynch turned himself in to police on this charge, plus additional charges from violations the officer observed when attempting to stop Lynch months earlier. These included speeding, two counts of failure to obey a stop sign, three counts of failure to signal, failure to drive right, disobeying the signal of an officer, failure to give motor vehicle credentials to an officer and improper parking.
Lynch was processed on the above charges and posted a $5,000 bond. He is due in court on Jan. 11.
