Westport police today arrested a 35-year-old Bridgeport man following a chase on I-95 and an attempted assault on officers, police said.
The incident began when Officer David Scinto observed a suspicious vehicle in the area of the Saugatuck train station parking lots off of I-95, police said.
A registration check of the vehicle found that the plates did not match the vehicle. Scinto followed the vehicle northbound on I-95 and stopped it in the area of exit 18, police said.
As he approached the vehicle, the driver, identified as Nelson Rivera, of 2426 East Main St., Bridgeport drove away at a high rate of speed, police said.
