Jae Sung Park, 48, of Bayside, N.Y., was arrested on a warrant Friday morning in connection with a one-car accident in March.
Park, who turned himself in at police headquarters, was charged with evading responsibility and failure to drive right. He was held on a court-set $5,000 bond and was to be arraigned later in the day.
A witness saw Park hit a fire hydrant on the Post Road, near Fairfield Place, around 12:30 p.m. March 29, according to the report. The hydrant was knocked over, but Park did not stop, police said.
The witness followed Park into Westport, and reported his license plate number to police.
