If you have a warrant out for your arrest, it's probably a good idea to follow the letter of the law. Gary Green of 3 Prospect St., Norwalk, is a case in point. On Aug. 11, Green, 23, was pulled over on Wilton Road for not wearing his seatbelt. A computer search revealed Ridgefield police had an active warrant out for Green's arrest. He was taken into custody and charged with failure to pay or plead.
