State Police say at around 11 p.m., they received multiple calls about a dark colored Audi driving erratically. Troopers then waited for that car at the I-84 westbound exit 25a off-ramp and once the Audi passed, troopers followed it but did not attempt to stop it because there was a construction zone.
However, once out of the construction zone, troopers attempted to stop the car, but the driver accelerated and did not stop until a sergeant ahead of the pursuit slowed traffic down so the driver had nowhere else to go.
Police say when they approached the car, they observed three people inside. The driver was identified as 29-year-old Cornelius Coney, who had a suspended license.
Police ran the plates of the car and discovered it had been stolen out of Ridgefield. There were also drugs found.
Coney was arrested and charged with operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license, operating a motor vehicle without minimum insurance, misuse of plates, engaging police in a pursuit, reckless driving, operating an unregistered motor vehicle, reckless endangerment, larceny, possession of a narcotic and possession on Marijuana under half once.
Coney was held on a $50,000 bond and will appear in court November 8.
