Officers say they responded to the Rodeway Inn for a domestic disturbance that involved an assault shortly before 5:00 a.m. As police arrived, they learned the suspect, 33-year-old Tyler McCormick of East Hartford was fleeing the scene in a Honda. Police tried to stop a Honda that was seen leaving at a high rate of speed, but McCormick refused to stop and engaged the officer in a pursuit to I-91. Officers pursued McCormick's vehicle into Windsor, where they stopped chasing him due to safety concerns.
After an investigation at the Rodeway Inn, East Hartford Police arrested McCormick and returned him to East Windsor.
He is facing charges including assault, threatening, disorderly conduct, criminal mischief, engaging in pursuit, reckless driving and turn violation.
According to police, McCormick had two warrants out for his arrest for failure to appear. He was held on bail.
