On 09/27/16, at approximately 9:10 pm, State Troopers from Troop D were dispatched to a residence in Killingly for a report of an active domestic disturbance. Troop D dispatchers advised Troopers that Aaron Morrissette (DOB 8/16/1995) was fighting with several people and smashed the window of a vehicle on the property. Upon Troopers arrival, Aaron drove a pickup truck towards the police cruisers and then across the front yard of the property. Aaron’s pickup nearly smashed into the front end of several police cruisers and then almost struck a female standing outside on the property. Aaron drove his pickup truck through a row of hedges, approximately 5 to 6 feet tall, and sped off down the road. Troopers attempted to stop the truck but Aaron refused to comply causing a brief motor vehicle pursuit. Aaron ran several red lights at busy intersections and nearly caused an accident. Aaron’s driving became so erratic and dangerous that Troopers broke the pursuit off to ensure the safety of the public. A Killingly Resident Trooper returned to the barracks and typed an arrest warrant for Aaron. On 9/28/2016, the Danielson Superior Court approved an arrest warrant for Aaron for the charges of reckless endangerment (2 counts), reckless operation of a motor vehicle, disorderly conduct, interfering with a police officer, engaging the police in a pursuit, operating under suspension as a result of a DWI, operating an unregistered motor vehicle and operating a motor vehicle without insurance. At approximately 5 PM, Troopers located Aaron at a residence in Killingly and took him into custody without incident. While in custody, it was learned that Aaron had sent disturbing text messages to a female that Aaron believed had spoken to the police regarding his traffic pursuit. At one point, Aaron claimed to have a bomb and threatened the female victim with it. Troopers determined there was absolutely no bomb, however the threat caused tremendous fear and alarm to the female victim and her family. Aaron continued to harass the female victim by calling her obscenities and making gender bias insults via text message. As a result, Aaron was also charged with a second set of domestic violence charges to include Disorderly Conduct and Harassment. Aaron was later transported to the Corrigan Correctional Facility and held on a combined $60,000 cash/surety bond. Aaron is scheduled to appear in Danielson Superior Court on September 29, 2016. It was later learned by Troopers that Aaron had posted to social media that he had out run five State Police cruisers and stated, “I won”.
