State Rep Jason Bartlett arrested on motor vehicle charges
Time: 3:33 PM
State Representative Jason Bartlett was arrested in Newtown on several motor vehicle charges stemming from the state lawmaker using a cell phone in his car without a hands free device.
From what I learned, after being pulled over for using his cell phone in his car, the police learned that Bartlett's license was suspended and his car registration had expired, at which point, the State Rep was arrested.
In a brief conversation I had with Rep. Bartlett, he stated that the incident was unfortunate and that he showed a poor lack of judgment. He also stated that paid the necessary fines..and bought a hands free device.
Moral of the story...don't use your cell phone without a hands-free device.
UPDATE: Rep. Bartlett's license was suspended due to his failure to pay a motor vehicle violation (use of a cell phone in a car without a hands-free device).
