Arrested: Don’t Do a U-Turn on Putnam Ave in the Police’s Rearview Mirror

On Sunday October 11th 2015 at approximately 4:20am, Greenwich police observed a gray Dodge Caravan parked in front of 230 East Putnam Ave.

The vehicle appeared to be running with one male, later identified as Timoteo Aguilar, 44, of 5 Woodland Av in Stamford, standing outside of the driver’s side door.

After turning around, police observed a single male occupant in the driver’s seat make a U- turn and begin to drive east on East Putnam Ave behind the police car. Aguilar then pulled alongside the police car’s passengers’ side door and ask for directions to Stamford.

Mr. Aguilar was unable to maintain his lane of travel crossing the double yellow multiple times. Police were able to determine the vehicle was unregistered, and as Aguilar pulled into a parking located at 1114 East Putnam Ave, police initiated a motor vehicle stop.

Mr. Aguilar was charged with DUI, Unsafe Movement, Operating Unregistered, and Operating without a License. He was given a $300 bond, which he posted and was released. He has a court date on Oct 26 in Stamford Superior Court.
