WESTPORT, Conn. – A 22-year-old Westport man turned himself in Friday on a warrant charging him with spitting at and being aggressive with police officers during an incident in November, police said.
On Nov. 16, police were called to Tyler Healy’s home on Spicer Road on a report that Healy made threatening remarks to family members, the police report said. Healy, who was not home when police arrived, was later found behind a Dumpster at Cumberland Farms, police said.
When officers tried talking to Healy, he allegedly became combative and spat at one of the officers, the report said. He spat at officers again when he was taken into custody, police said. Because he was taken to Bridgeport Hospital that night, Healy was not charged at the time, police said.
Under the arrest warrant, Healy was charged with two counts of assaulting a public safety officer, a felony. He was also charged with two counts of second-degree threatening, interfering with an officer and breach of peace, all misdemeanors. He was held on a $10,000 bond and arraigned at Norwalk Superior Court Friday morning.
