October 10, 2018

A 54-year-old Bronx, N.Y. woman has been arrested after leading State Police on pursuit on I-95 late Tuesday morning.

The chase later ended in Greenwich when state and local police boxed her vehicle in on Steamboat Road.

Josephine Aliberti was charged with operating a motor vehicle under suspension, operating a motor vehicle at too slow a speed, reckless driving, engaging police in pursuit, evading responsibility, unsafe movement of a motor vehicle, failure to insure a private motor vehicle and interfering with an officer and resisting arrest.

It began at 11:37 a.m. on Tuesday when a trooper engaged Aliberti in pursuit after attempting to stop her vehicle for operating erratically.

Aliberti engaged troopers in pursuit from Exit 8 in Stamford to Exit 4 in Greenwich, where she repeatedly exited and re-entered I-95.

“During the pursuit, Aliberti was unable to return back to I-95 and troopers pursued her through Greenwich with the assistance of the Greenwich Police department,” according to the arrest report.

She was taken in to custody after her vehicle was boxed in.

She is being held on $10,000 bond and will appear in Stamford Superior Court on Wednesday.
