STAMFORD, Conn. -- A driver in a two-vehicle accident early Saturday in Stamford ran from the scene and jumped back into bed, claiming he had been at home all night, police said.

However, Stamford Police weren't buying that and charged Alberto Seoane, 24, of 32 Corbo Terrace, Stamford, with evading responsibility, Interfering with an officer, misuse of plates, and operating a motor vehicle without a license.

Officers were called to a two-vehicle accident at 1:45 a.m. on Rockrimmon Drive between a Jeep and a green Honda Accord, police said. The driver of the Jeep was intoxicated and taken to Stamford Hospital’s emergency room with a head contusion, police said.

Meanwhile, officers chased Seoane, the driver of the Accord, who ran into a friend’s residence, police said. Seoane had just left that location, and he jumped into bed wearing only his boxers and socks and said he had been there the entire night, police said.

However, his wallet was located inside his pants lying next to the bed. Officers, using his ID and asking a resident of the house, were able to determine Seoane's identity and he was taken into custody, police said.

Officers discovered that the license plates on the Honda Accord belonged to a tan Ford Explorer from Interlaken Road in Stamford, police said.

When checking its vehicle identification number, officers found the Honda belonged to a New Jersey resident, police said.
