A Norwalk man was faces narcotics charges after he was allegedly found with marijuana on Fairfield Woods Road late Saturday, police said.

Michael Kunytskyy, 20, was charged with illegal sale of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school (Fairfield Woods Middle School), according to the police report.

A patrol officer noticed a male on a skateboard in the middle of Fairfield Woods Road just after 10 p.m. Saturday. He told the male, later identified as Kunytskyy, that it was dangerous to skateboard in the middle of the road and noted Kunytskyy seemed nervous and reportedly kept putting his hands in his pockets.

Kunystskyy allegedly resisted the officer when the officer told him to put his hands on the patrol car, according to the report. The officer reportedly found several packages of marijuana and a digital scale in Kunytskyy's pockets, department spokesperson Sgt. Sue Lussier said.

He was released on a promise to appear in court on Oct. 1.

Clearly an illegal search. Being nervous is not a crime.

I am not a lawyer but I don't think this was an illegal search. He was asked not to put his hands in his pockets as a safety precaution. When the officer told him to put his hands on the patrol car for his own safety, the young man resisted which is a crime.

Well, I can sleep better tonight knowing that those bags of pot are off the street. Whew!

Take my advice on this. Delete this post. You'll get your say in court. You aren't doing any good for yourself by talking before your day in court. Ask your lawyer.

Pi is right Michael. Delete it. If they can use this against you in any way, they will. Right or wrong, like it or not, that is how prosecution works. Don't talk to anyone but your lawyer and parents on this topic, and definitely don't put anything anywhere on the internet. There is a reason you have the right to remain silent--it is the right to avoid self-incrimination.

Stop and Frisk on a skateboard. 'Resist' is a specious charge because it ranges from struggling to hesitating.
