Cashman was complimentary of the Connecticut officers and stated he wasn’t fully stunned by the circumstances due to a name he bought from the Westchester County police in New York about his stolen automotive.

“They’re clearly very skilled and educated and so they requested me to show my automotive off, exit the car, stroll backwards in direction of them … they have been executing their responsibility,” Cashman advised the Submit.

Cashman was driving to Norwalk, Connecticut, so his automotive might be processed for proof there when he was stopped in Darien, he stated.

“They searched my automotive, requested for my ID,” he stated. “I defined what was occurring.”
