WESTPORT, Conn. — A Westport man was arrested on Aug. 30, after he entered the Westport Police Department and began threatening the staff, police said.

According to the police report, Lawrence Kozar, 57, of Jesup Road, threatened an officer and a civilian working in the communications area. When asked to take a seat, Kozar took a fighting stance and did not obey the officer’s command, police said.

He was charged with second-degree threatening and breach of peace in the 8 p.m. incident, police said. He was held on $1,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 9.

On June 9, Kozar was charged with criminal trespass after he returned to a Post Road East facility two days after he caused a disturbance at that site and was warned by police not to return, police said.
