Manchester man dragged trying to stop fleeing car

MANCHESTER — A city man was dragged when he tried to stop another man who had just hit his car early Saturday, police said.

A Fremont man accused of hitting two cars on Bridge Street faces several charges, police said.

Patrick Decoito, 19, is charged with felony reckless conduct, conduct after an accident, driving while intoxicated and possession of a controlled drug. He was also put on a 72-hour probation hold, police said.

Decoito struck a car near 102 Bridge St. and that car's driver got out to try and stop Decoito's vehicle around 1:30 a.m., said Sgt. Craig Rousseau.

"The victim tried to keep him from leaving and ended up getting dragged from the driver-side window area," Rousseau said. "He was dragged for a couple hundred feet and got loose."

Decoito then hit a parked car near Bridge and Chestnut streets. Officers found him still inside the car, Rousseau said.

The man who got dragged, Jason Williams, 32, lives nearby at 154 Bridge St.
He was not taken to the hospital, but Decoito was transported to Catholic Medical Center for medical attention and later taken to the police station, Roseau said. Decoito is in the Valley Street jail.

Decoito "was found with what was believed to be a small bag of marijuana after his arrest," Rousseau said.
