SOMERS, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut police officer who was placed on leave for 11 weeks following his arrest has been restored to duty after a unanimous vote by the Board of Selectman.
First Selectman C.G. “Bud” Knorr says the board acted based on a decision by the supervisory assistant state’s attorney to drop all charges against Claudio.
Claudio was facing charges of second-degree unlawful restraint and disorderly conduct following a confrontation with his live-in girlfriend March 5.
The attorney says Claudio attended therapy sessions and had not violated a protective order, qualifying the charges against him to be dropped.
