WESTPORT — A broken brake light led to a slew of charges being filed against a 26-year-old driver last week, police said.

Michael Scaminaci, of Derby, was charged July 14 with misuse of license plates, failure to have insurance, operating an unregistered motor vehicle, operating a motor vehicle without a driver’s license and having an improper stop/turn signal lamp.

The incident that led to the arrest, according to the report, took place shortly after 9:30 a.m. July 14 when a traffic-enforcement officer noticed that a brake light on a black Jeep “did not illuminate.”

The officer then checked the Jeep’s license plate to make sure it was properly registered, and discovered the plate was legally registered to a Hyundai and not a Jeep, police said.

The driver — identified by police as Scaminaci — was pulled over and was “unable to produce a valid car registration, insurance card or operator’s license,” according to the report.

Scaminaci was placed under arrest, and released after posting $1,000 bond.

He is scheduled to be arraigned on the charges July 26 at state Superior Court in Stamford.
