    Police told the Republican-American that Officer Michael Terzigni was parked at a local Home Depot on Wednesday morning when Trena Grant, 30, of East Hartford ran up to his car and asked him if he wanted a free cup of coffee, then threw the coffee at his face.

    Terzigni was off-duty in his personal car, but wearing his police uniform and arrested Grant again after a struggle.

    He wasn't seriously hurt.

    Grant is detained on $50,000 bail on charges including assault on a police officer. A message seeking comment was left for her public defender Friday.

    She was charged with assault on a public safety officer, resisting arrest and third-degree criminal mischief. 

    According to court records

    She is due in court on April 14 to face the Waterbury charges.
