Police Arrest Teen for Reckless Driving, Engaging Police in Pursuit

On May 24 at about 10:20am Greenwich Police arrested a 19-year-old at Greenwich High School by warrant.

The arrest of Glen Lamont Ragin, 19, of Harold Ave in Greenwich stemmed from an incident around 11:00pm on Dec 28, 2017 on West Putnam Avenue.

According to Lt John Slusarz, Ragin took off in a Volkswagen when police tried to stop him for making an improper turn.

“Given the totality of the circumstances, they identified who was in the car and broke off the chase for the safety of the public and the driver,” Slusarz said.

He was charged with Driving an Unregistered Vehicle, Improper Use of Plates, Driving to Endanger Occupant, Reckless Driving, Engaging Police in Pursuit, Improper Turn Stop/No Signal, Traffic Control Signals, Driving without a License and Reckless Endangerment 2.

He was unable to post his $50,000 bond and has a date in Stamford Superior Court on June 8, 2018.

Back in April, Ragin was arrested at his home by warrant and charged with Reckless Burning and Reckless Endangerment 2 for lighting a sparkler at GHS.
