New London police officers who were investigating a domestic disturbance on Wednesday night ended up finding a fugitive wanted in New York.
Police responded to 324 Jefferson Avenue just after 11:15 p.m. to investigate a disturbance nearby when they noticed a man who fell on the sidewalk, police said.
When officers went to speak to the man, he was agitated and “somewhat combative,” according to police, who arrested him and brought him to the New London Police station.
As they were booking William Robertson, 33, of Reading, Pennsylvania, who is also known as William Bolding, they found out he has an extensive criminal past, which includes several robberies, assaults and weapons violations, according to police.
They also learned that he was wanted for a parole violation in New York.
Robertson was charged with disorderly conduct, assault on a police officer, interfering with police and being a fugitive from justice.
He is being held in lieu of a $250,000 bond.
It's not clear if he has an attorney and no phone number is listed for Robertson's address.
