John Devone, the son of a Bridgeport police sgt, was arrested on drug charges after leading police on a chase. He was previously arrested for allegedly stealing his son from the boy’s mother in Georgia. Police said Devone failed to stop at a stop sign on Howard Avenue Tuesday night and nearly struck another car. When officers tried to pull him over police said he accelerated. During the chase police said they saw Devone toss an item from his car, they said it was later found to be a packet of marijuana. Officers finally stopped him and they said he agreed to get out of his car after they threatened to send in their dog to convince him.
