Arrest Follows Truck Blocking Traffic

An oil delivery man who refused to move his truck blocking Railroad Place traffic as he continued pumping oil was arrested for interfering with an officer and refusing to show his license and registration, police said today.

According to Lt. David Farrell, Allen Pearson, 50 of Stamford, was blocking traffic on Friday even though he had been warned in the past not to block the roadway.

“Pearson refused to move his truck until he was done pumping oil and refused to give the officers his license and registration paperwork,” Farrell said.

He added that Pearson then tried several times to shut the door of the truck while officers ordered him to exit. 

Pearson was taken out of the truck by the officers and placed under arrest. Pearson was uninjured, Farrell said.

Pearson was released after posting a $500 bond and is scheduled to appear in Norwalk Superior Court Court on Monday, Feb. 29.

He’s no hero but no worse than so many of the privileged in Westport who feel entitled to do what they want whenever they want.
