State trooper charged with interfering with officer

HARWINTON, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut State Trooper has been suspended and charged with interfering with an officer following a confrontation last Saturday.

State police say officers were called to a home in Harwinton around 9 p.m. for a suspicious car parked in a driveway.

Police found 41-year-old Trooper Kenneth Dillon, who allegedly became uncooperative with officers. Trooper Kelley Grant said Tuesday Dillon was arrested after being questioned and taken to a hospital for a medical evaluation.

The state police Bureau of Professional Standards has launched an administrative inquiry into the incident.

State Police Union President Andrew Matthews tells WFSB-TV people should "refrain judgment until all facts are known."

Dillon is due back in court June 18.
