Police arrested a teen and a 31-year-old man after receiving several complaints about masked people driving ATVs erratically and throwing rocks at cars in East Haven.

Police said the incidents were reported on Thursday in the area of Main Street and Forbes Place in the center of East Haven. When police searched the area, they found the drivers on Foxon Road and apprehended a 15-year-old boy after he pulled into the Sunoco Station on Frontage Road, police said.

Vincent Verderame, 31, was driving a car behind the ATV drivers and videotaping them, according to police.

The juvenile was charged with reckless endangerment in the second degree, breach of peace in the second degree, reckless driving, criminal mischief in the third degree and several other motor vehicle charges. Police seized the ATV.
When police stopped Verderame, they realized that there was an active probation violation arrest warrant and took him into custody.

He was released after posting a $5,000 court- set bond.

He is due in court in New Haven on Aug. 20.
