NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- A man who didn't stop for police on Nov. 17 and refused to speak with them when they showed up at his residence turned himself into New Canaan Police 

Charged with interfering with an officer and driving with a suspended license is Cory P. Lynch, 39 of 2 Charles Place. Bond was set at $5,000 and his first scheduled court date is Jan. 11. 

At about 1:08 a.m. on Nov. 17 an officer on patrol saw a vehicle run a stop sign at Forest Street and Locust Avenue, police said. The officer tried to stop the vehicle but the motorist refused to stop, police said.
