FAIRFIELD, Conn. - A man pulled over who was driving erratically early Tuesday in Fairfield was wanted for contempt of court charges in Suffolk County, N.Y., police said.
According to the police report, an officer saw the car traveling erratically at 1:45 a.m. The car drove out of a residential area near I-95 before driving back around the area in a suspicious manner, police said.
The officer checked the license plates through the police database and found that the car was rented, police said. Rented cars are often used in criminal behavior, police said.
After stopping the car, the officer discovered that the driver, Antoine Land, 40, of Copiaque, N.Y., was wanted on first-degree contempt of court charges.
Fairfield police charged Land with being a fugitive from justice and held him overnight on $250,000 bond.
The court will decide Tuesday whether to extradite Land to New York on the original charges. The outcome in court was not known.
