FAIR HAVEN — A 23-year-old Benson man was arrested by Fair Haven Police on March 21 after being stopped for a motor vehicle violation and found to be driving with a suspended license.

Jonathan P. Jordan was pulled over at 4:45 p.m. on Washington St. for not having a front license plate.

During the stop, police discovered Jordan was under criminal suspension for operating a motor vehicle.

Further investigation revealed that Jordan had an active arrest warrant issued by Judge John Valente of the Rutland District Court for failing to appear on a prior charge of driving with a suspended license on Oct. 23.

Additionally, Jordan had previously fled from police on his motorcycle on Oct. 12 after officers attempted to stop him following a motor vehicle complaint.

He was also arrested for this prior incident.

Corporal Edward Hunter and Chief William Humphries, who conducted the investigation, arrested Jordan on the strength of the warrant.

He was released with a citation to appear in court on March 23 and was issued additional citations for the new offenses to appear in court at a later date.
