A Shelton man was arrested in Milford on Sunday for allegedly striking a police officer after driving around erratically and swearing at residents. 

Police say that at around 4 a.m., officers responded to the area of Anderson Avenue near Ashwood Road, for a breach of peace complaint that led to the arrest of 31-year-old Collin Webster.
