Red Light Chase Leads to Motorist's Arrest

A man who told Greenwich Police that he was following a car because he saw the driver run a red light ended up being charged second-degree breach of peace.

According to a Greenwich Police report, it all started in Port Chester, NY around midnight April 25 and ended nearly 4 miles away when a Greenwich police officer stopped the drivers of a sedan and an SUV on Route 1 in Cos Cob. The drivers caught the attention of Officer Stanley Sanders who saw them driving at a high rate of speed near the state line.

While Sanders was following them, a passenger in the sedan called Greenwich 911 dispatch center to report they were being chased by the SUV. In his report, Sanders wrote that the SUV driver said he was following the car because he saw it run a red light in Port Chester and he was unsuccessful in calling 911 to report that incident.

The SUV driver, identified as John C. Giordano, 52, who gave an address of 126 Haseco Ave., Port Chester, was issued a misdemeanor summons for breach of peace. He was released on a written promise to appear May 2 in state Superior Court in Stamford.
