David Cari — one of four officers indicted last year as part of the U.S. Justice Department's racial profiling investigation into the East Haven Police Department — was arrested by state police for allegedly illegally hunting deer and tresspassing on Regional Water Authority property near the Lake Saltonstall Reservoir, according to a New Haven Register report.
Cari, who is out on bail as he awaits trial in the federal case, was arrested by state police after the RWA obtained a warrant for his arrest on Jan. 17.
RWA spokesperson Kate Powell told the newspaper that Cari has a history of trespassing on authority property.
According to the report, Cari — an accomplished bow hunter — is not allowed to possess a firearm while out on bail. The Register noted it was unclear at this time if the former police officer had violated the terms of his release.
