At around 4:48 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 15, an officer on patrol in New Canaan saw 37-year-old Adaobi N. Kurylov of Darien riding a bicycle on South Avenue. The officer knew that there was an active warrant out for Kurylov for failure to appear in court for a previous incident in New Canaan police said.

The officer followed Kurylov in his patrol car and saw her commit multiple traffic violations, including not obeying a traffic signal and not using her hands to signal turns, police said. She was finally stopped on Main Street and taken into custody.
