HARWINTON, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut State Police trooper has been suspended and charged with interfering with an officer following a confrontation last weekend.
State police say officers were called to a home in Harwinton around 9 p.m. Saturday for a suspicious car parked in a driveway.
Police found 41-year-old Trooper Kenneth Dillon, who allegedly became uncooperative with officers. Trooper Kelly Grant said Tuesday that Dillon was arrested after being questioned and taken to a hospital for a medical evaluation.
The state police Bureau of Professional Standards has launched an administrative inquiry into Dillon, who was suspended with pay.
State Police Union President Andrew Matthews tells WFSB-TV people should “refrain judgment until all facts are known.”
Dillon is due back in court June 18.
