NEW CANAAN, Conn. (AP) — Police say a Greenwich man who was issued a ticket over a parking spot used racial slurs against an officer and said he was singled out because he’s white.
The Advocate of Stamford reports that David G. Liebenguth was arrested Sept. 17 on a charge of second-degree breach of peace.
The arrest warrant released Wednesday says the New Canaan parking enforcement officer issued a ticket to Liebenguth after finding his car parked in an unpaid spot.
Police say Liebenguth started an argument became verbally abusive. In a letter to New Canaan officials, Liebenguth accused the officer of harassment.
A call to a phone number listed in Liebenguth’s name was not immediately returned Thursday morning.
Liebenguth turned himself in Sept. 17 and was released on a promise to appear in court Sept. 29.
