Man charged with DUI and other offenses

car accidentA 25-year-old man from New Britain was charged with multiple offenses after his car hit a police cruiser at an intersection in Middletown on Sunday, March 16.

At around 1 a.m., Middletown Officer Patrick Keily was driving near the intersection of Washington and High Streets when a car driven by Christopher Griffiths hit the rear of his police cruiser. Keily was rushed to Middlesex Hospital for non-serious injuries. Griffiths’ 24-year-old passenger Rudy Lockhart, however, was rushed to Middlesex Hospital for minor injuries.

Griffiths, who did not sustain any injury, was charged with DUI, driving with a suspended license, and driving too fast. Meanwhile, his passenger was found in possession of less than four ounces of marijuana and was charged.
