BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) — A Bristol police officer who was arrested and suspended after what authorities called a workplace threat is facing his first court appearance in the case.
Officer Adam Quinn is scheduled to be arraigned on a misdemeanor breach of peace charge Monday in Bristol Superior Court.
Police officials say Quinn was part of a threat involving other police department employees in December. More details haven’t been released, and the arrest warrant has been sealed from public view.
Quinn’s lawyer, Daniel Esposito, says Quinn’s arrest stems from another officer’s grudge and not from a workplace threat. Esposito says Quinn is a highly decorated officer and Navy veteran.
There were no injuries and no risk to the public related to the threat.
Quinn is on administrative leave pending criminal and internal affairs investigations.
