Bridgeport man charged with criminal impersonation

WESTPORT — A Bridgeport man is facing impersonation charges after he provided police with a fake name after getting pulled over, police said.

A Westport officer was patrolling the Sherwood Island area around 9:45 p.m. Oct. 2 when he was passed by a blue Nissan Maxima with a license plate that had expired more than a year ago.

When the officer pulled the vehicle over, the driver identified himself with a name police later learned was fake.

Police determined the driver, who was positively identified as 28-year-old Zachary Archibald, of Bridgeport, lied about his identity because his driver’s license was suspended.

Archibald was charged with interfering with an officer, criminal impersonation, operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license, failure to carry a license and operating an unregistered vehicle.

He was released after posting a $1,500 bond, and he is scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 16.
