Police arrest Stratford Councilman O'Neal during altercation
The incident began when police were called to break up a fight between high school girls. While police attempted to separate the girls, O’Neal claims one of the officers threw a 14-year-old against the hood of a car and hit her in the face. O’Neal says he was arrested after coming to the girl’s defense.
The girl was charged with assault of a police officer and released. O’Neal is being charged with breach of peace and interfering with a police officer. His court date is scheduled for next week.
