Police Arrest Newtown Man in Road Rage Incident

The following information was supplied by the Monroe Police Department. No arrested person is guilty until so judged in a court of law.

A Road Rage Incident

A 48-year-old Shelton woman told police she stopped to allow someone to turn into Duchess across traffic, while heading north on Main Street at around 2:09 p.m. on Feb. 1, when a man in a Land Rover behind her became angry at the brief stoppage because the light at the Purdy Hill Road intersection up ahead was still green.

Police said the driver, Asim Polozani, 38, of Susan Lane in Newtown, blared on his horn, made hand gestures, then drove past the 2004 Honda and stopped his Land Rover in front of it. He then allegedly got out the Land Rover and started yelling at the victim, according to police.

A 38-year-old Newtown man, who was driving a 2008 Honda behind the two other vehicles, went around them and as he passed by, he told police that Polozani gave him the finger and smacked his windshield, cracking it.

Police said Polozani told officers he did not strike the vehicle, rather that his arm was out and the Honda drove into it.

The Newtown man had his wife, four-year-old daughter and eight-week-old son in the car during the incident, police said.

Polozani was charged with second-degree criminal mischief and bond was set at $500 for a Feb. 8 court date.
