5:02 a.m. – Akron Canfield and Weaver roads, Matthew Bugno, 59, of Youngstown, arrested and charged with failure to comply and OVI. Police said they tried to pull over the car Bugno was driving because he was going 70 mph in a 35 mph zone. Officers said he was not slowing down or pulling over, so they chased him until he eventually stopped along US-224. Police said they ordered Bugno out of the car with his hands up, and he said, “Oh my, Canfield? Where am I at?” They said he was wearing sunglasses even though it was dark outside. When an officer asked him why, Bugno said, “It’s the best way to see,” according to a police report. When police told him he was swerving on the road, he replied, “It’s the safest way to drive,” the report says. Bugno also told them he’s had the bracelet he was wearing for a “couple thousand years,” police said.
