PITTSFIELD – State police arrested an out-of-state man following a high-speed chase that started in Pittsfield and ended in Fairfield.
The incident began when authorities got a call about a vehicle operating erratically and speeding on Interstate 95.
According to a statement from state police, 24-year-old Patrick Smith of Ohio was behind the wheel.
Police say Smith refused to stop when a trooper tried to pull him over and instead began passing vehicles in the breakdown lane.
