Tired of waiting

Sergeant Joseph Ezepek was in his police uniform next to a marked police car while he was directing traffic after an accident at Congress and Westbrook on February 18th, a little before 10:00 P.M.

James Exchange, 46, of Westbrook, disregarded the officer’s direction to remain where he was, and continued to proceed.

When he was stopped further down the street by Ezepek, he gave this reason for his action: He was waiting long enough and decided to go. His decision added considerable delay to his getting home because he was arrested and charged with failure to stop for a police officer.
