A New Britain man was arrested for leading police on a chase in South Windsor last month.

Police say that on July 25th, officers attempted to stop a Chevy Tahoe on Route 5 for a traffic violation when the vehicle pulled into a parking lot. A passenger then got out of the car before it fled north on Route 5.

An investigation determined that 39-year-old Anthony Lewis was the driver who fled. An arrest warrant was obtained and Lewis was arrested on Thursday. 

Lewis was charged with interfering with an officer, engaging in pursuit and misuse of registration plates. 

Lewis was released on a promise to appear but his parole officer ordered him held until his court appearance Friday.
