Police: Fairfield teen drove through red lights, assaulted officers
FAIRFIELD — Police said a Fairfield teenager drove through several red lights on the Post Road Saturday night and kicked officers when they tried to take her into custody.
Cara Fraser, 19, of Sasapequan Road, was charged with interfering with an officer and assault on a police officer.
According to the police report, an officer was stopped at a red light on the Post Road near the Brick Walk when he heard an engine accelerating. He then saw a white SUV, coming in the opposite direction, drive through several red lights. The officer turned around and followed the driver, identified as Fraser, as she turned down Beach Road and made a quick turn into the Gaelic American Club parking lot.
The officer said there was an event going on, and people were walking out of the building as Fraser drove through. The officer used his vehicle to block Fraser from leaving. The report states Fraser refused to open the door and show officers her driver’s license. Instead, she began recording the officer. Fraser said she didn’t have a driver’s license because officers seized it the previous week.
Other officers arrived, and Fraser allegedly began kicking officers from inside her car. She was eventually handcuffed and taken into custody, although she was kicking and banging her head on the partition.
Police allege she was uncooperative during the entire booking process and at one time tried to run out of the booking area.
Fraser was released to her parents on a promise to appear in state Superior Court in Bridgeport March 5.
