Police Blotter: Man Charged After Blocking Intersection While Drunk

The following arrest information was provided by the Southington Police Department. It does not indicate a conviction.

Southington police early Saturday morning arrested a West Street man that officers said was causing a disturbance while at the intersection of Center Street and Liberty Street just before 1 a.m., acting belligerent and refusing to get out of the road.

Police took Ronald Scott Nadeau, 53, into custody on charges of interfering with an officer, breach of peace and reckless use of a highway by a pedestrian. He was released after posting a $500 bond.

A police report said Nadeau, of 1588 West St. in Southington, was drunk and walking in the middle of the intersection when officers arrived. When they tried to approach him, he became combative and fought with the officers before he was finally subdued and taken into custody.

He is due in Bristol Superior Court on Jan. 2, according to court records.
