East Haven Officer Wins Bid to End House Arrest



    David Cari

    An East Haven police officer charged with harassing Latinos is returning home, ending a five-month house arrest at his mother's house.

    The New Haven Register reports that David Cari, who is retired, must post a $100,000 bond. The U.S. District Court in Bridgeport accepted his motion to return home.

    Cari was one of four officers arrested in January 2012 after an FBI and U.S. Department of Justice investigation into alleged racial profiling of Latinos. He was arrested again earlier this year for alleged illegal deer hunting and criminal trespassing.

    He awaits trial in the federal case in which he is charged with unreasonable searches and seizures, deprivation of rights for making arrests without probable cause and other charges.

    Moving back to his home allows Cari to care for his police dog.
