Police log: DUI, voicemail violation, and egg throwers
The Trumbull Police Department made the following arrests between Tuesday, March 8 and Monday, March 14:
40-ounce bottles found on passenger seat
An Elaine Place man was arrested for driving under the influence and failure to drive right on the southbound entrance ramp of the Merritt Parkway around 1:50 a.m. Monday, March 14.
Police said Jamie Beardsley, 33, was driving south on Route 108 when he was observed driving through a stop sign.
According to a report, a Trumbull officer witnessed Beardsley drive through the stop sign and pulled him over as he was turning onto the highway entrance ramp.
The officer saw three empty 40-ounce beer bottles in Beardsley’s front seat and smelled alcohol on his breath.
Beardsley was asked to step out of the vehicle and perform three field sobriety tests, which he failed.
He was transported to Trumbull police headquarters, where he was found to have a blood alcohol concentration of .22.
He was released on a $500 bond and scheduled to appear in court Tuesday, March 22.
Man threatens suicide, violates protective order
A Bridgeport man was arrested for criminal violation of a protective order at the Trumbull Police Department at 6:35 p.m. Friday, March 11.
Police said Robert Konigsberg, 50, called his 16-year-old son on March 5 and threatened that he was going to kill himself.
According to a report, the son was eating dinner with his mother, Konigsberg’s wife, at the Cheesecake Factory at the Westfield Trumbull mall and that the mother called 911 immediately.
While the son stayed on the line, Konigsberg called his wife in an attempt to have a three-way conversation with both parties, police said.
When the wife didn’t answer, Konigsberg left her a three-minute voicemail, which violated a protective order she had against him.
The mother and son convinced Konigsberg to come to the mall, where Trumbull police detained him and sent him to a hospital for a mental evaluation.
Once out of the hospital, he turned himself in on a warrant for violating the protective warrant and was released on a $50,000 bond.
Egg throwers caught with yolk in car, on sweatshirt
Two Bridgeport men were charged with criminal mischief in the third degree on Madison Avenue at 12:15 a.m. Thursday, March 10.
Police said Jared Poltrack, 21, and Alexander Palmieri, 21, were seen throwing eggs at a driveway on Madison Avenue and were recorded on video surveillance.
According to a report, the complainant told police that his house had been attacked by the egg throwers in the past and that he had caught them throwing eggs onto his driveway that night.
Officers found a car that matched his description and pulled it over.
Poltrack and Palmieri denied throwing the eggs, but an investigation revealed fresh yolk on one of the mats inside the vehicle as well as a sticky, yolk-like substance on one of the suspect’s sweatshirts.
They were each cited at the scene and released.
They were scheduled to appear in court Monday, March 14.
