A Bridgeport man was arrested in connection with an accident involving vehicles at Miller Nissan on Kings Highway East in Fairfield.

Jeremy Robinson, 21, of Main Street, was charged last week with evading responsibility, failure to drive right, and driving the wrong way for the incident, which occurred early on Saturday, Jan. 5.

Bridgeport police had been pursuing Robinson's vehicle that morning on I-95, according to a police report. Robinson allegedly exited the highway at Exit 24, drove across Chambers Street and through Cumberland Farms, and then through a wooden fence, striking two vehicles parked at Miller Nissan, police said.

The driver of the vehicle fled, but Bridgeport police had already identified Robinson as the suspect, according to the arrest report. He was arrested on a warrant on Wednesday.

Robinson was held in lieu of a $1,000 bond and is next scheduled to appear in court on March 12.

If anyone saw the result of this adventure, it was amazing that no innocent bystanders were injured or killed. Setting the bond at $1000 is a joke and this criminal will be at it again in no time. The system won't work if you don't enforce it. He wasn't evading the police to deliver nonna her Lorna Doone's.
