NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — A 15-year-old Connecticut boy is facing charges for allegedly punching a driver involved in a collision with his friend while they were out riding bikes.

New Haven police say the 32-year-old man was driving in the city at about 8 p.m. Tuesday when he was involved in a collision with a 15-year-old cyclist. The driver remained at the scene.
