Matthew Brodoff, a 19-year-old who had a South Salem residence given, was arrested and chargedwith criminal possession of stolen property and assault, both felonies.
According to the arrest announcement, a caller reported "an erratic operator" driving on Route 121 in nearby Cross River. A Lewisboro police officer was said to confirm that the car spotted, a 2002 Subaru Legacy, was the same vehicle reportedly stolen in Mount Kisco.
The Lewisboro cop began the pursuit to North Salem, with state troopers and North Salem police taking the chase thereafter, which headed into the southbound lane of I-684.
