NEWINGTON, Conn. (AP) - Officials say a New Britain police officer fired his gun in the process of taking a suspect into custody following a pursuit that ended with an accident in Newington.

Police have charged 35-year-old Rodney Kincaid with operating a motor vehicle under suspension, reckless driving, engaging officers in pursuit and drug possession in connection with Monday’s chase.

New Britain officers attempted to pull over Kincaid on East Street around 6:20 p.m. but he instead led a chase into Newington. He was arrested after crashing at the intersection of Main Street and East Robbins Avenue.

During the apprehension, one New Britain officer fired his gun at the scene. The suspect was not injured.

It’s unclear if Kincaid has an attorney who can comment on the charges.
