Westport resident David Sarrazien, 31, was arrested last Friday on a warrant in a March 12 car accident that he left and later lied about to the police, Westport police say.
Sarrazien, of 26 Highland Road, crashed his car and left it on the front lawn of 54 North Ave., police say. When police found Sarrazien walking up the road, he denied driving any car or being involved in an accident. He also explained his injuries by saying someone had jumped him.
During the investigation, officers say they obtained a search warrant for Sarrazien's hospital records, which revealed he tested positive for drugs after the accident. Sarrazien was charged with interfering with an officer, operating under the influence, evading responsibility, misuse of plates, operating an unregistered motor vehicle, insurance coverage below the minimum, operating without a license and failure to drive right. He is schedule to appear in court April 18.
Also from the police blotter:
Norwalk resident Jose Morales was brought in to Westport police Saturday by a bail enforcement agent on a warrant. Police say the warrant stemmed from a November arrest in which Morales, 37, was charged with several motor vehicle violations on which he allegedly failed to appear in court. He was charged with second-degree failure to appear and is scheduled to appear in court April 19.

He is due in court April 19.
