A Channel 30 Exclusive
A driver from Channel 30 witnessed an argument between a couple after a night of drinking just as it was taking place on March 17, according to a report from the West Hartford Police Department.

The woman left the scene and stranded the suspect, who is a 26-year-old East Haven resident, following the argument.
A Bristol woman in her 30s was arrested last Thursday after she was pulled over for running a red light.
According to Lt. Donn Watson of the Bristol Police Department, the woman gave a fake name to the officer who pulled her over.
She had been driving on a suspended license, and to make matters worse her muffler was noisy, so along with being arrested for criminal impersonation, driving with a suspended license and failure to obey control signal, she was also fined for “unnecessary noise.”
