Police Arrest Newtown Man in Road Rage Incident

A man allegedly tangled with two other drivers on Main Street on Feb. 1.

The following information was supplied by the Monroe Police Department. No arrested person is guilty until so judged in a court of law.

A Road Rage Incident

A 48-year-old Shelton woman told police she stopped to allow someone to turn into Duchess across traffic, while heading north on Main Street at around 2:09 p.m. on Feb. 1, when a man in a Land Rover behind her became angry at the brief stoppage because the light at the Purdy Hill Road intersection up ahead was still green.

Police said the driver, Asim Polozani, 38, of Susan Lane in Newtown, blared on his horn, made hand gestures, then drove past the 2004 Honda and stopped his Land Rover in front of it. He then allegedly got out the Land Rover and started yelling at the victim, according to police.

A 38-year-old Newtown man, who was driving a 2008 Honda behind the two other vehicles, went around them and as he passed by, he told police that Polozani gave him the finger and smacked his windshield, cracking it.

Police said Polozani told officers he did not strike the vehicle, rather that his arm was out and the Honda drove into it.

The Newtown man had his wife, four-year-old daughter and eight-week-old son in the car during the incident, police said.

Polozani was charged with second-degree criminal mischief and bond was set at $500 for a Feb. 8 court date.

Did Asim have a "Romney" bumper sticker on the Land Rover?

Child endangerment?

Really? And what, pray tell, does Romney have to do with this man's inability to control his temper? How about telling us when was the last time you saw or heard of Mitt Romney exhibiting rage? Your comment warrants contempt.

Romney supporters are violent. I read it on the internet... http://www.ctpost.com/news/article/Bridgeport-firefighter-suspended-after-anti-Obama-3865941.php

Carl ~ That's one of the funniest things I've read all day!

Romney supporters are violent??? That explains chicago, D.C. New York, Detroit

Not using your real identity gives people the "Courage" to openly disrespect, be rude, and make obnoxious comments. This is so out of hand in today's society. On Yahoo news, many of the remarks posted are despicable. The racist and hate comments are deplorable. I encourage all honorable individuals to post using your true name. The Mitt Romney supporter comment is absurd. The Night Stalker's joke wasn't appreciated. Would he have made the same post with his true identity revealed? What says you Carl?

Bob ~ The hateful comments you describe are deplorable. Re my comment supportive of Romney, I do believe that if an individual finds a comment absurd enough to comment on it, that individual needs to say why it's absurd. Perhaps you'd do that. Rest assured, this is my very own name.

Not a good idea to use your real name on these discussion boards. I've heard about some Romney supporters who take things really personally, get really obsessed, join the NRA, that sorta thing. Of course, I'm sure by now you have seen all the evidence proving that Romney supporters are prone to violence, especially when they encounter a Prius-driving Obama supporter, so incognito is the way to go. Believe me.

Does the term "courage of your convictions " mean anything Carl? You and "Bob Jenkins " could both use it.

Convictions are more dangerous than lies.

You have an interesting sense of humor, Carl. (With love from a Romney supporter.)
jim laguardia February 09, 2013 at 04:31 AM
How so??? How is it dangerous to say what you have to say under a real name?? Why hide behind a persona and get no credit (or flack) for what you say??

I am planning to run for governor, Jim, using the millions I have earned from my career as a professional wrestler (I'm sure you've heard of me, I used to wrestle as Steroid Steve), and I don't want any of these comments used against me.

Oh I like the way you think Bob!! You had me at Romney!!
