The 19-year-old accused of injuring a Shelton Cumberland Farms employee while stealing a David Hasselhoff sign in August has pleaded not guilty to second-degree assault and second-degree reckless endangerment, according to the court.
Adam Holter of Milford turned himself in to police Thursday, Oct. 10 and admitted to driving the car that struck 36-year-old Jason Crowley in the parking lot of the Cumberland Farms at 819 River Road, police said. The incident happened Aug. 20 around 1:15 a.m.
Police said Crowley noticed a man get out of a black SUV and cut two Hasselhoff ads off a light pole in the parking lot. Crowley was attempting to stop the theft when the car sped away, dragging Crowley behind it.
Crowley flipped backward and landed on his head, according to police. Witnesses called 911 to report that Crowley was having seizures. He was taken to Bridgeport Hospital and was listed in critical condition.
This wasn't the only theft of its kind – the Associated Press reports that about 550 Hasselhoff cutouts were stolen across the country during the summer of 2012.
No additional arrests have been made in this case.
