Greenwich Police say they busted the driver of an all-terrain vehicle after receiving complaints from Riverside residents that ATVs and dirt bikes were being raced in their neighborhood.
According to Greenwich Police spokesman Lt. Kraig Gray, "this is an ongoing neighborhood complaint about ATVs and off-road motor bikes being operated on the highway."
On Friday afternoon, police were able to catch one suspected ATV operator after he initially ignored police orders to stop, according to the police report.
Tyrone S. Walker, 23, of 1840 Lexington Ave., New York City, was identified as the operator who had two passengers aboard the ATV about 4:50 p.m. Sept. 20 on Westcott Street in the Riverside neighborhood of Greenwich.
Walker was ticketed for operating an ATV without a registration, excessive speed on an ATV and failure to stop an ATV upon signal by police, according to the report. He also was charged with two counts of first-degree reckless endangerment for having two passengers on the vehicle. The passengers told police they tried to convince Walker to pull over for police, according to the report.
Walker posted the $500 bond set on the charges and is scheduled to appear Sept. 27 in state Superior Court in Stamford.
