A Norwalk man finds himself in trouble after a couple incidents early Thursday morning.

Anthony C. Harkness, 50, of 11 Sycamore Drive, Apt. E, was arrested by Norwalk police officers for operating a vehicle while intoxicated and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle after allegedly using a relative's car without permission while under the influence.

Harkness' under the influence charge is his sixth in 20 years, making the offense a fourth-degree felony.

Norwalk Police Chief David Light said Harkness had more issues once he arrived at the police station and was placed in the holding cell.

"He was then charged with criminal damaging after kicking out the window in the cell block," Light said.

Light said it will cost $235 to fix the window.

The chief said Harkness would be calm and then have a fit of rage.

"He would have an outburst and then be calm and then go off again and then be calm," he said.

Harkness eventually was placed in the restraint chair, the chief added.
