NORWALK - A man accused of leading police on a chase through Norwalk last week appeared in court today.

Steven Carey, 21, is accused of stealing a van and leading officers on a chase, hitting several cars and injuring people along the way.

Police say that after Carey crashed, he acted crazy and began hitting the van with his bare hands. Officers say they were forced to use a stun gun on Carey to subdue him.

Carey was released on $9,000 bond and is due back in court on May 8.
