On June 4, 2016 at approximately 7 PM ,Trooper First Class James Esposito of the Killingly Residents Troopers Office stopped a vehicle on Humphrey Lane in Killingly for driving the wrong way on a one-way street. During the stop, the operator of the motor vehicle gave the Trooper a false name and date of birth. While the Trooper was making efforts to correctly identify the individual, the operator exited his car and fled on foot. Trooper Esposito and other nearby Troopers chased after the operator and caught up to him by the Danielson Superior Court. After a brief struggle, the operator was placed under arrest. Troopers positively identified the operator as Christopher Danyow (DOB 07/16/1984) of Plainfield. Danyow was also found to be in possession of narcotics pills not prescribed to him, several glassine baggies containing heroin/cocaine , various items of drug paraphernalia and marijuana.
