A 48-year-old Greenwich resident was arrested after allegedly driving into the path of a police cruiser following a dispute and later causing a scene at Town Hall.

Ernest Drupals arrested on Tuesday, Jan. 28, following an investigation into two separate complaints of a person being disruptive and unruly, Greenwich Police said.

The first incident took place around 1140 a.m. when police responded to Carrona Drive on a report that Drupals allegedly instigated a confrontation with a neighbor, police said.

Police said Drupals was leaving the area as police arrived and he intentionally drove his vehicle into the path of a police cruiser causing the officer to make an evasive maneuver to avoid a crash.

Later in the day, Drupals went to Greenwich Town Hall where he allegedly acted in a loud and disorderly manner which resulted in a call to police. 

Police located Drupals in the parking lot where he was arrested.

Drupals was charged with reckless endangerment, breach of peace and disorderly conduct. He was released on a promise to appear ticket.

He is scheduled to appear in Stamford Superior Court on Feb. 2.
