A Bethel man has been arrested for leaving the scene of an accident. Police say officers responded to a one car crash on Hickok Avenue Thursday night and determined that the operator fled on foot.
Police then found 45-year old Vincent Gaita in the basement of a relative's house. Police went to his former Oxford Street home and found him hiding.
He was arraigned on charges of criminal mischief, evading responsibility, failure to keep right on a curve and interfering with the duties of an officer.
