Police: Teen passenger in car that hit CT trooper charged

HARTFORD — A Plantsville teen was charged in connection with a July incident when a Windsor man allegedly hit a state trooper after fleeing a traffic stop on Interstate 84, police said.

Brooklyn Mahogany Marcano, 18, of Mount Vernon Road, was charged with interfering with an officer after she turned herself in to Connecticut State Police Troop H on an active warrant.

She posted bond and was released. Marcano was given a Dec. 14 court date in Hartford.

The charge stemmed from an incident around 4 a.m. July 19 when Sgt. Timothy Begley pulled over 22-year-old Jayquan Syale Richardson on I-84 west near Exit 46 in Hartford on the suspicion that the driver was under the influence, a state police arrest report said.

Begley apparently got a whiff of “a very strong odor of marijuana” coming from the car and when he tried to get the keys from the driver, the report said, Richardson took off and hit the trooper with the vehicle.

Begley was not seriously injured.

Law enforcement identified the pair in the vehicle as Richardson and Marcano through their investigation and arrested Richardson earlier this month.

He was charged with assault on a public safety officer, second-degree assault, interfering with an officer/resisting arrest, first-degree reckless endangerment, speeding over 70 mph, engaging police in pursuit, failure to drive in the proper lane, operating a motor vehicle without a license and possession of less than a half-ounce of marijuana.
