FAIRFIELD, Conn. - After a dispute over parking, a Fairfield man was charged with breach of peace and interfering with an officer Thursday evening, police said.
The manager from Harry's Wine and Liquor told officers that a man had shoved him and the manager at Geronimo's Southwest Grill on the Post Road after he was repeatedly asked to move his car, police said.
According to the police report, Michael Carter, 26, of Southport, parked in the Harry's parking lot and was walking toward Geronimo's. But he ignored repeated requests from the manager of Harry's to move his car if he wasn't doing business in the shopping center, the police report said. Carter continued walking to Geronimo's, police said.
The manager from Harry's went into the restaurant to speak with the manager, who also told Carter to move his car from, police said. During the discussion, the three men went outside and Carter shoved the manager from Harry's before moving his car, the police report said.
An officer stopped Carter a short time later, informed him of the complaint, and asked him to get out of the car, police said. Carter ignored then yelled at the officer, police said. Two sergeants were called to the scene on the Post Road to assist in taking him into custody, police said.
Carter was charged with breach of peace and interfering with an officer. He was released on a promise to appear in court March 20.
