Two Danbury residents were arrested on October 5 after allegedly vandalizing another person’s car and attempting to evade police, which finally ended after driving off the road just north of Four Corners.
Brookfield officers responded to a reported motor vehicle accident in the area of Four Corners on Friday at 11:18 p.m. with a vehicle attempting to leave the scene. As officers were about to arrive, the vehicle fled. Police followed, but the car eventually stopped after passing another vehicle and driving over the front lawn of Lew White Appliances, sustaining a flat tire.
During the course of the investigation and speaking with witnesses and those involved, officers determined that Eva Thorne, 44, of East Liberty Street, Danbury, had been driving the vehicle and Brian Dube, 44, of South King Street, Danbury, allegedly struck and broke a mirror on the victim’s vehicle with his hand. At Four Corners, Dube and Thorne switched seats in the vehicle and fled the scene as officers arrived.
According to police, Dube and Thorne were evasive when questioned and provided several different accounts of the incident, resulting in both being charged with interfering with an officer.
Both were arrested and also charged with operating an unregistered motor vehicle and Thorne was given an additional charge for operating without a license. Dube was also charged with criminal mischief in the third degree, passing in a no-passing zone, failure to drive in the proper lane and reckless driving.
Thorne and Dube were released after posting $1,000 and $2,000 bond, respectively, with a court date set for October 16.
