A Cheshire man wanted for allegedly running over a pair of bail enforcement agents with a motor vehicle was charged with two counts of second-degree reckless endangerment on Wednesday, Vernon police said.
Jeffrey Sirois, 26, of 721 Ives Rd., Cheshire, was charged at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, an arrest report indicates.
A warrant had been issued for his arrest in Vernon after a Nov. 9 incident near Rockville Superior Court, police said.
Sirous was wanted for failing to appear in Bristol Superior Court on larceny charges. When he was spotted in Vernon, a plainclothes bail enforcement officer began talking to him and another eventually approached his vehicle as well, police said.
Sirois noticed an ID tag on the second officer and tried to flee, knocking over one agent and dragging the second a short distance in the process, police said. The agents suffered minor injuries but refused medical treatment, police said.
Vernon officers found the vehicle short time later on Mountain Street, police said. They were approached by a woman, 20-year-old Elizabeth Kulinski, who lives in the neighborhood, and is the girlfriend of Sirois, police said. Police discovered she was wanted in Bristol for failure to appear in court, police said.
She was arrested, but Sirois remained at large. He was arrested in Cheshire on Nov. 19 and was in jail in Hartford for the failure to appear and the larceny charges, police said.
Vernon police added the reckless charges on Wednesday.
