BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — A 21-year-old Norwalk man was busted on drug charges at about midnight Tuesday on Route 8/25 in Bridgeport by a Connecticut State Police Trooper, police said.

Christian Scott was charged with drug paraphernalia, possession with intent to sell, possession of a controlled substance and failure to drive in the proper lane on a multiple lane highway, police said.
