GREENWICH — Police arrested an Old Greenwich resident after an Uber driver called authorities to complain he’d been hit in the face.

Michael Ettinger, 53, of Park Avenue, was charged Sunday night around 11 with assault, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct.

The Uber driver told officers that a “male passenger had punched him in the face and fled,” according to the arrest report. Ettinger was found nearby and charged. Officers said Ettinger was physically disruptive while he was being placed in a squad car, butting his head against a door, causing damage.

He was later released on $300 bail.
