SALISBURY — A 19-year-old man from Middlebury was arrested on multiple charges following an incident in Salisbury earlier this month.
On February 13, police say they were participating in a high visibility traffic safety patrol with a focus on intervening in speeding and aggressive driving.
Police say they observed two vehicles traveling side by side while one was trying to pass the other at a dangerously high rate of speed at that time.
Both vehicles were recorded at traveling nearly double the posted speed limit at 96 miles-per-hour, in an area of highway posted at 50 miles-per-hour.
Police initiated a traffic stop of one of the involved vehicles and the operator deflected the investigation by providing the name of his brother.
Following an investigation, police allege that Tallon Real was the driver of one of the vehicles, and he does not have a valid license.
Real turned himself into the New Haven barracks and was issued a criminal citation to appear in court to answer the charges of operating after suspension or revocation of license, false reports to law enforcement authorities, negligent operation, and excessive speed.
