 A Waterbury man is accused of chasing his girlfriend's car around town and threatening her, police said.

Thomas Anderson, 34, drove to meet his girlfriend somewhere in Middletown and the two began to argue on Monday. When the argument escalated, Anderson allegedly rammed his car into his girlfriend's car, police said. 

Damaged to the girlfriend's car was estimated to be over $1,500 in damages, according to police documents. 

Police said the victim called 911 when she was trying to maneuver her car to prevent Anderson from taking it. Anderson pursued the victim's car and was reportedly driving "with disregard and indifference to the safety of the victim and other motorists," according to police. 

 The pursuit occurred in Middletown and Portland where the suspect didn't stop for police. Anderson crashed his car and left the scene. He was taken into custody on Mar. 1. 

Later, Anderson allegedly texted the victim and said she "better kill herself before he does," the police said. 

Anderson is accused of first degree assault, reckless endangerment/intimidation, attempt to commit a crime, first degree harassment and operating a motor vehicle without a license. 

He was held on a $100,000 bond.
