Seymour man charged with evading police

Police charged a Seymour man with engaging police in a pursuit after he allegedly ignored an officer’s signal to pull over and drove onto I-95.

Police said that on Feb. 4 at about 10 p.m. they signaled for Jason Lee, 38, of Bungay Road, Seymour, to pull over as he was driving on the Boston Post Road because he reportedly drove through a red light.

Lee disregarded the officer's lights and siren and continued onto I-95, police said.

“The vehicle eventually stopped for police. During the stop, Lee refused to comply with the officers' efforts while being taken into custody. Lee did not have proof of insurance for the vehicle,” according to a police report.

Lee was held in police custody on $1,000 bond, charged with failure to obey a traffic control signal, distracted driving, failure to obey an officer's signal, engaging police in pursuit, carrying no insurance, and interfering with police.
