A failed credit-card transaction at the Walgreens pharmacy in Westport was the cause of Fairfield resident Preston Murphy's run in with police Sunday afternoon.
According to police reports, Murphy, 32, used his credit card to pay for a prescription. But when the pharmacy was unable to process the credit-card payment, Murphy reportedly grew angry and started arguing with the manager. At one point, Murphy allegedly threatened the manager.
Murphy was arrested and charged with breach of peace. He was released on a promise to appear in court Feb. 16.
