A local woman threatened to hit a police officer during a Sunday traffic stop, police said.

Sage Hammond, 34, of Main Street, faces a charge of interfering with an officer in connection with the incident.

Police said that when an officer stopped a car about 10:15 p.m. Sunday and was talking to the driver, Hammond, a passenger who had left the car, threatened to hit another officer who arrived on the scene to assist with the investigation.

Bond was set at $500, and she is scheduled to appear on the charge at state Suerpior Court in Norwalk later this month.
