A Fairfield County man was nabbed after fleeing the scene of a crash in which he struck a pedestrian in the arm.

The incident took place in Darien on Friday, Sept. 16, on West Avenue.

When Darien police responded to the scene of the crash they found a pedestrian who reported that a vehicle had struck his arm while walking on the sideway and fled the scene while driving erratically, said Sgt. Dan Skoumbros, of the Darien Police.

A description of the vehicle was broadcast to Stamford Police who located the vehicle and the driver who was identified as Nue Perdedaj, age 24, of Stamford, Skoumbros said.

When asked by officers, Perdedaj could not provide valid insurance for the vehicle, he added.

He was transported to headquarters where he was charged with evading responsibility and failure to insure a motor vehicle.

Perdadaj was released on 10 percent of his $1,000 bond.
