Friday evening means football for some people in Greenwich and traffic troubles for more, but just after 5 p.m. a carjacking tied it all together.
Police arrested three people after the driver of a car they allegedly carjacked in Bridgeport decided he didn't want to go on to New York City. Before he got to the last exit in Connecticut on I-95, the driver tried to stop, say police. A pistol went off inside the car but no one was hit. Instead, two men got out of the car on the interstate and ran into Greenwich.
A few hundred yards away from I-95 at Western Middle School, local youth football league players were practicing. Police blew the whistle.
One youngster said, "They said everybody off the field, there's a guy with a gun!"
Players and coaches complied and ran into the school while police made the arrests. The driver was injured when he crashed the car. Also, there was a third suspect, a woman in the back of the car, who was also arrested.
