On Friday, a 22 year old man was arrested on Theodore Fremd Avenue in Rye for reckless driving and assault, among other changes.

After failure to comply with a traffic stop, Wilver Hiraldo of Norwalk, Connecticut was observed traveling northbound on Theodore Fremd Avenue on an unregistered moped. When officers attempted to initiate a traffic stop, Hiraldo accelerated around stopped traffic and drove into the oncoming lane of traffic in an attempt to elude officers.

Hiraldo then drove his moped onto the sidewalk of Theodore Fremd Avenue where an officer on foot was able to pull Hiraldo off the moped and onto the ground. After briefly resisting arrest, Hiraldo was taken into custody.

One Rye PD officer was treated and released from Greenwich Hospital for injuries sustained during the arrest. Wilver Hiraldo was transported to Rye Police Headquarters, processed, and charged with the following: Unlawful Fleeing a Police Officer in a Motor Vehicle 3rd – (Misdemeanor); Reckless Driving – (Misdemeanor); Obstructing Governmental Administration 2nd – (Misdemeanor); Resisting Arrest – (Misdemeanor); Assault 2nd – (Felony).

On Saturday, July 6, 2024, Hiraldo was transported to the White Plains Courthouse where he was arraigned and released on his own recognizance. Hiraldo’s next court appearance is Tuesday, July 9, 2024, at 9:00am in Rye City Court. Rye PD reminds you that booking charges are merely accusations and the defendant(s) are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
