A drunken Waterbury motorcyclist is accused of chasing a car driver who he said cut him of in Naugatuck Wednesday night.
It happened around 10 p.m. when Vincent Porzio, 47, of 1575 Thomaston Ave., was driving a motorcycle in an erratic manner and pursuing the driver of a car, who called police when he became fearful for his safety after being followed by the man near Spring Street, police said. The man said he would pull into the parking lot of the police department, which is also on Spring Street.
Porzio drove right into the trap.
He followed the car driver up a side road near the department that leads to a brush dumping area for Naugatuck Public Works. Police followed Porzio, who said he was angry about being cut off, and discovered he had drank more than the legal limit, police said.
Porzio was charged with following with intent to harass and operating under the influence of drugs/alcohol. He will be arraigned on Sept. 13 at Waterbury Superior Court.
