A 24-year-old Norwalk man, charged in May with creating a disturbance at a former girlfriend’s Westport apartment, faces new charges — including assaulting police officers — when police said he returned to the apartment July 4.
Aaron Everhart, of North Main Street in Norwalk, in addition to assault, was charged with criminal violation of a protective order, interfering with a police officer and disorderly conduct.
Police were dispatched to investigate a report of a woman screaming at the Cross Street apartment about 9:15 p.m. July 4, and knew that a protective order had previously been issued against the resident’s former boyfriend.
Everhart, who was in the apartment, refused to comply with officers’ directive to leave and resisted arrest as they attempted to take him into custody — at one point, taking swings at the officers — according to the report.
He was unable to post the $25,000 bond, police said, and was arraigned July 6 at state Superior Court in Norwalk.
