The Andrassy Avenue man charged with drunken driving in January after he hit a pedestrian now faces an assault charge.

Chad Reck, 21, was charged on a warrant Thursday morning with second-degree assault with a motor vehicle, operating an unregistered motor vehicle and failure to obey a stop sign.

Reck is charged with driving through the stop sign at Longfellow Avenue's intersection with Castle Avenue about 1:30 a.m. Jan. 30, striking a pedestrian with enough force that the impact propelled the pedestrian through the windshield.

The injured pedestrian, who was not identified by police, was extricated from the car and taken to St. Vincent's Medical Center in Bridgeport for treatment.

At the time, Reck failed field sobriety tests, police said, and was charged with driving under the influence. Court records indicate that Reck has not yet entered a plea for that charge.

After Thursday's arrest, bond for Reck was set at $10,000 bond and he is scheduled to appear March 8 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
