Former Danbury police officer Christopher Belair was fired after video surfaced of him using profanities while threatening to beat a driver and telling him to leave the country.
The News-Times reports (http://bit.ly/2BOqPCG) that the arbitration panel called Belair’s behavior “outrageous and disturbing,” but found the city did not have just cause to fire him. The panel said a 90-day suspension would have been more appropriate.
Belair was charged after the confrontation but was acquitted in 2015 of third-degree assault and threatening.
Neither Belair nor his lawyer could be reached for comment, but Belair previously said he still wanted to help people.
