DARIEN, Conn. – A teen was accused of damaging a Darien Police car during his arrest on drug charges last week, according to police reports.
Officers went to the Hollow Tree Ridge Road home of Rashad Mitchell, 19, with an arrest warrant on Sept. 26, police said. Mitchell was wanted on drug charges after he was accused of selling marijuana to undercover police officers on two occasions in September, police said.
Officers saw Mitchell in the back of a car as they entered the Avalon Darien apartment complex parking lot and pulled over the car, police said. During the arrest, officers also found two plastic bags containing marijuana in his backpack, according to police reports.
After he was handcuffed, Mitchell began banging his head into the hood of a Darien Police car, putting a dent in the hood, police said.
Mitchell was charged with two counts of the sale of a controlled substance based on the warrant and with added charges of criminal mischief, marijuana possession and intent to sell stemming from his arrest. He was released after posting $10,000 bond and is due in court on Oct. 7.
