Rugova,AvdiA Shelton man was arrested after Fairfield Police said he jumped from a car on I-95 and went on a destructive rampage in a Cumberland Farms convenience store.

Avdi Rugova, 19, of Fairmont Place, was arrested on Jan. 8, 2:37 a.m., charged with breach of peace, criminal mischief in the second degree and interfering with an officer.

Fairfield Police said that Rugova got out of a vehicle, presumably traveling at a low rate of speed, on I-95. He then walked to the Cumberland Farms at 975 Kings Highway East, at the bottom of the Exit 24 ramp off I-95 south.

Once inside the store, police said, Rugova caused $800 in damage to tiles and handrails in the rest room for handicapped patrons.

Officers said he resisted arrest and continued trying to damage the store.

Bond was $1,000 for court Jan. 15.
