GUILFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut State Police have arrested an 18-year-old man they say led officers on a 40-mile, high-speed pursuit with three juveniles in his stolen car.
Police say the chase started at about 3 a.m. Monday in Westport.
The car went northbound on Interstate 95 and, at one point, the occupants abandoned the vehicle and got into another car. The switch was caught by highway surveillance cameras, and police eventually stopped the second car on the highway in Guilford by using tire-deflation devices.
The driver, Jordan Butler, of Waterbury, was arrested on several charges, including reckless driving. The three juvenile occupants of the vehicle were released to the custody of their parents.
